« Staying on the Sofitel Private Island in Bora Bora was one of the most memorable vacations of our life! »

We got married on the Sofitel Private Island in Bora Bora! It was magical! The individual attention given by all the staff in this exquisite and private setting was nothing short of magnificent. Delicious meals were made at our request by our wonderful chef and host Sacha (with a candle light dinner on the beach after our wedding) exquisite snorkeling was just a few swim strokes away in the Coral Garden behind the island, excursions and spa appointments were easily managed through the staff and the sensational views from the hilltop were beyond words. We will be back for our 1 year anniversary next year! We are counting the days.

« Wonderful place to stay and great staff »

We had a wonderful time. Room was very nice and great views and snorkeling. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Private island was great and so easy to get a boat to the main island. I wouldn't change a thing.

« Amazing location, amiable staff, good value. »

My husband and I enjoyed our stay immensely. The accommodations are more rustic than our first stop on our French Polynesian journey, but our welcome was a warm one, the staff friendly, and eager to please. We appreciated the ready access to the main island and help in arranging dining and jet skies. We loved taking the kayaks out to the Coral Garden early in the morning ahead of when all the tour boats arrived. Things we would like to see: Free Nespresso pods. This seems like a small thing, but at our first stop, there were unlimited and free. I love to drink coffee while watching the sunrise so we ended up purchasing a box of generic pods at the island store. I understand (owning a machine myself), that each pod is about 80FP, still...the goodwill and favorable impression would outweigh the cost. A path to the snorkel garden. We are agile enough to climb in and out of the kayak while it is in water over our heads. Not all your guests are able to do so. We watch some struggle and other not even attempt it. Also, it would be terrific to be able to take the kayaks out earlier. We arrived right at 8 each day. 2 out of the three days, someone was there to help us. The other day, we had to hunt for several minutes to find someone to ask, who had to locate someone else to help us. This would not have been so much an issue if we were not in a hurry to get to the Coral Garden to have a short while before the tour boats arrived. A 7 AM start would have been better. It was often difficult to find someone to answer a question. Once I did, the staff member was always helpful. The staff just seemed few and far between.

« Fantastic, very restful, just what we were looking for! »

The staff was very friendly. We like that we had access to the kayaks and snorkel fins at no charge. We also loved that there were coral farms right in front of our bungalow area so that we were able to snorkel right off our bungalow.

« Beautiful Confusion »

Our initial arrival was magnificent on the Private Island and we were greeted with warmth. The scenery was everything that we could imagine it to be and more. A few things that surprised us were that there is mosquitoes, though only one or two in our room, we ended up with new bite marks throughout our stay (usually showing up on the arms or legs) on days that we did not leave the island. Also, Sofitel resorts don't have bed sheets so I imagine that many of your guests get hot with the heavy blankets, so why do guests need to request this. Also, we had to ask for a bed sheet every day because the room service staff removed them during the room being cleaned and never replaced them. We also had to often ask for things like wash cloths because they also did not get replaced during room service. Sofitel Moorea offered a better breakfast then Private Island, on many occasions if you got breakfast after 9am some of the food stations, like bacon, were not refilled. Also, the juice and water area was never refilled with ice, so the beverages were warm, and who really likes warm juice?! Lastly, we didn't use the concierge service and we quit thrilled by our self discovery of adventures and outings. We did use the concierge service on our last day to book a reservation at the Lagoon restaurant at St. Regis, as we mentioned this multiple times the concierge said they would call. Later in the day they confirmed the reservation at St. Regis and that we would be picked up by boat. From our understanding the St. Regis picked up by boat, St. James was by car, but again we confirmed that it was for St. Regis (this was the staff at Sofitel Private Island). While visiting Sofitel Mahara the staff asked us about our plans while waiting for the boat to St. Regis to pick us up. The staff had scheduled a reservation to St. James, not St. Regis. As my wife and I were really excited to see the Lagoon glass floor at St. Regis and had no interest in going to St. James, we ended up eating dinner at Mahara since the staff were more professional. This mix up on scheduling reservations could happen to anyone but again only proved that both St. Regis resorts we stayed at (Moorea and Private Island) lacked common services you would get at most hotels. No future trips will be planned for us to stay at another Sofitel property nor will I recommend that someone stay at your properties at this time. Vacations are meant to be relaxing, not worrying about whether the staff took your bed sheet or if they booked a dinner reservation. Your properties have access to some of the best snorkeling spots but I am afraid most guest will leave with disappointment.

« We had a wonderful experience »

The Sofitel Private Island was the perfect choice for us. We were looking for a smaller resort that still had a high level of comfort and convenience. The staff was fantastic, the privacy and location of the island was just what we were looking for and the accomodations were very good. The shuttle boat to the island was more convenient to use than we expected. The Concierges were very helpful with dinner and transportation arrangements. The proximity to great snorkeling and kayaking was great.

Stay was very relaxing. Greetings at the dock with coconut drink were super. The staff helped to take pictures our arrival. It will be a treasure memory. Staffs were all very nice, helpful and friendly. The snorkeling behind the Private Island was amazing. We did it twice with the hotel kayak. The hotel supplied the snorkeling masks but no fins.

« A beautiful hotel in a beautiful location with a wonderful staff »

Sofitel Bora Bora is in an absolutely amazing location close to the best coral gardens in the area. The rooms can use a renovation because the accommodations were not what I expect from a five-star hotel. The food was satisfactory but nothing that I particularly was excited about. The staff at this location is absolutely amazing. They really do seem to go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and are not waiting for unreasonable amounts of time for any service. The convenience provided by the staff is apparent when booking excursions or making dinner reservations off sight as they seem to take care of everything. The hotel Manager Sasha was an excellent host and made us feel like we were personal friends of his. I will definitely consider returning to this hotel the next time I go to Bora Bora.
