The slice of Polynesian culture and history that comes with the Sofitel Marara Beach accommodation makes a Bora Bora vacation even more interesting. See these adorable bungalows and check their affordable prices.

Marara Beach resort was extensively rejuvenated in 2006. The décor of the bungalows blends earthy, rich woods and the Polynesian talent for palm leaf weaving with a beautiful, uncluttered simplicity that is very calming.

Any one of these nostalgic bungalows will put you in the mood for romance or holiday fun.

If you want to see what one is like inside there's more photographs and information about Sofitel garden bungalows here.

Luxury Beach Bungalows

There's only 11 of these splendid set-on-the-­sand Sofitel beach bungalows. So if you want one, book in advance.

Everyone thinks Bora Bora and over water bungalows. Yet we enjoy a Bora Bora beach bungalow just as much. Stay in one at the Sofitel and sitting in your sun-­lounge, on your deck, is like being in a panoramic movie theater. The sensational views, right across the water to Maupiti, include the occasional flashy spectacle of a a para­sailor or jet skier flying by.

Consider one of these for your Sofitel Marara Beach accommodation. Go here to look inside and find out more about the Marara beach and garden bungalows.

Sofitel Bora Bora Marara accommodation:

Luxury (Half Over Water) Lagoon Front bungalows

This Sofitel Marara Beach accomodation was the inspiration of the daughter of movie director, Dino De Laurentis. After the film crew returned home, she stayed to open Marara Beach as a resort. She had them constructed along the shoreline, with their decks supported by long stilts in the water. You can walk straight into them from the beach. They were the first over water bungalows in Bora Bora.

Sofitel Overwater Bungalows

Their aspect includes the lagoon with the overwater bungalows in deeper water, and across the water to the infinity pool and thatched roof main building, which houses the Marara restaurant and bar. And some have a view to the Private Island.

Luxury Bungalow Over Water

The second Marara Sofitel over water bungalows were built further out in deeper, turquoise water. If you're thinking of Bora Bora Sofitel Marara Beach accomodation over water, and can pay a little more, these provide better lagoon access for swimming and snorkeling straight from your bungalow.

Luxury Over Water Bungalows at the Sofitel Bora Bora

There's a romantic, circular, wooden jetty to walk to your 'room'. (Would you believe that we were once asked if you have to swim to the restaurant from your overwater bungalow!)

Wheel Chair Access

The Sofitel Marara Beach resort on the mainland of Bora Bora Island has two bungalows which provide reduced mobility access.

Walk around the Sofitel Bora Bora Private island

Come for a walk around the exotic Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. Perhaps your perfect Bora Bora bungalow is over there.
