Beautiful location

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Shannon C. Couples - 14/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Loved the small hotel and location was stunning. Staff were wonderful. Would have appreciated the hotel offering boat rides to the coral reef for snorkelling. And some movies in English. It was so easy to see fish right by the walkways by the bungalows on the artificial reef, using a snorkel and mask. Cocktail happy hour was great.

Dear Mr. C., Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are very happy that you liked the location of our hotel, as well as the hospitality and professionalism of our team. We are also delighted that you were able to discover the underwater treasures of our beautiful little island: tropical fish, coral garden, etc... We look forward to welcoming you back to French Polynesia! Mauruuru and see you soon! Concierge Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

Rose W. H. T. C. Couples - 09/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Bonjure! Very pleased with my recent stay at Sofitel Private Island Resort. Very personalized customer service, very private, quite picturesque, serene & tranquil environment. Exactly what we were searching for... Great location and fantastic staff! Lovely property... Stunning really. So authentically Polynesian, much more so than what the other brands offer in the region. I'm a travel agent, this was my first experience with Sofitel and my first visit to this region. I was very impressed, with the property, location, ambiance provided, staff attention to detail and tasty cousine offered. I did much research before choosing a resort in Bora Bora, Sofitel, they exceeded my expectations! I will highly recommend this resort to my clients traveling to this region. Our trip was nearly perfect in every way- (minus a 4 day delay with our luggage arrival from the airline...). Thank you so very much for a wonderful experience, not to be forgotten! Lanaiac was a nice bonus, he made our visit extra special! Wonderful attentive young man with much promise for the hospitality industry.

Ia Orana! The whole team thanks you for your wonderful comment and is very happy that your stay on our small private island has more than pleased you! We are delighted that the intimacy and landscapes it offers have charmed you, as have the legendary Polynesian hospitality and the various attentions paid to you by our team, especially Lenaic. We thank you once again for your very encouraging words and look forward to welcoming you back to French Polynesia or to one of our Sofitel. Mauruuru roa and see you soon!

We had a great time! The huts over the water were comfortable, but need updating. Several lights out, tired furniture. Food was 5/10. Lenaic was very helpful, as was Mai!

The accommodations from airport pick up, accommodations/property, activities, recommended ecotour (sharks and stingrays), breakfast/lunch/dining dining to airport drop off were perfect. The staff’s Attention to details, offers of service without being overbearing and warm spirits left lasting impressions on our family including our typical 16 and 17 year old teenagers - well done SOFITEL!

Ia Orana! The whole Sofitel team thanks you for your wonderful comment and is very happy to learn that your family stay on our small tropical island has more than pleased you!

Customer review rating 4.7/5

F S. B. Couples - 29/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Experience was great. Few suggestions to improve an already wonderful stay: 1. Either use a king size mattress or a much thicker pillowtop. The twin mattresses separated several times during our stay. 2. Increase AC capacity. 3. Love the bath but shower made it very messy. Think about a separate shower or a better combination 4. The toilet area smelled like a porta potty. Maintenance replaced the toilet seal which helped but didn’t resolve. We ended up buying spray from the main island to mask the smell.

Ia Orana, we thank you for your good comment and are delighted that your experience was wonderful! We thank you for your constructive comments, which we welcome and look forward to welcoming you back to one of our Sofitels. Sincerely, Conciergerie Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Marara Beach Resort

Recommendation: stop using plastic ... like straw ask visitor to natual laggoon park to not use solar cream for corals ...

Ia Orana, we thank you for your comment and are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay on our beautiful little island! We also thank you for your feedback and would like to inform you that the straws we use are made of biodegradable material, often corn and not plastic.

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Douglas P. Couples - 13/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The private island with the palm trees and bungalows are like a fantasy realized. From our boat ride from the airport and our personal greeting at the resort until our farewell at the dock with the conch shell being blown everything was perfect. All of the employees were warm and friendly, and did everything to make our stay wonderful. We were treated like royalty. The buffet breakfast in the morning and the Polynesian shows at night are not to be missed. I highly recommend the Sofitel Private Island.

Dear Douglas P., we thank you for sharing your experience and are very happy to read that your stay on our small private island has exceeded your expectations.

Great hotel and staff, but in need of updates

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Katie Couples - 10/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The Sofitel Private Island is stunning and tucked away so you feel utterly alone in paradise. The staff were amazing, friendly and went above and beyond. The hotel does have some wear and tear. As I said with my review of Sofitel Moorea - the AC should be able to cool down not only the bedroom, but the bathroom as well. There should also be glass on the windows to keep AC in and bugs out. Overall, a wonderful honeymoon. I'd recommend to a friend.

Ia Orana, thank you for your good comment. We are so happy to read that the magnificent setting of our hotel has charmed you, as has the legendary Polynesian hospitality. We thank you for your comments, which we take note of and hope to welcome you back to one of our Sofitel! Nana and see you soon!

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Becky &. T. G. Couples - 07/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

It was a magnificent experience from the point when we were picked up from the airport by a Sofitel personnel up to our room accommodation. Being our first time we were looking forward to the boat ride on the beautiful, calm waters. Because we stayed at a Sotifel resort in Moorea we knew that the staff will be just as friendly and gracious here as it was in Moorea and we were not disappointed. Everyone was so friendly and so happy to welcome us. The four nights that we stayed here was very pleasant and everyone seemed to enjoy what they do in making our stay very memorable. The food at the restaurant was good; I tried the spiny lobster just to say that I tried it and it was disappointing. The reason being that my husband is originally from Maine and I am used to the Maine Lobster. It's no ones fault but if it was cooked simply without the trimmings (steamed for example) it probably would taste better (my own personal preference). We tried the scallops and prawns and they were delicious. Housekeeping was wonderful in providing us some sweets for the nite (the macaroons are my favorites) so thank you for that. The front desk and Concierge (Rachel, Denise, Lea, Victoria, and Lea's friend) were all very accommodating to deal with and willing to make our stay unforgettable. Thank you very much to the staff at both Sofitel Moorea and Bora Bora Private Island.....you are the best and an asset to the tourism industry in French Polynesia. More success to you....

Becky & Tom G., the whole Sofitel team thanks you for your very positive feedback and assures you of the happiness you get when you learn that your stay at our hotel was a wonderful and unforgettable experience! We also thank you for your very encouraging messages to our team and especially to Rachel, Denise, Léa and Victoria as well as to our cooks. We look forward to welcoming you back to our small private island in the heart of the pearl of the Pacific! Mauruuru roa and see you soon!

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Adrian M. Couples - 04/06/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We first stayed at the Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island back in 2015. Due to having such an amazing experience we decided to return for our 10th anniversary. Much to our surprise we were greeted by Tita. This beautiful sole was working at the resort during our first stay and remembered us. She was amazing and made us feel very welcome and special. It’s staff like Tita make the resort even more beautiful. Everything was amazing, all of the staff, the food, the resort itself, especially it’s position. We both lead very busy stressful lives as we are both front line Police officers. After arriving this place somehow manages to allow us to completely relax and forget the world, only concentrating on each other. It’s experiences like this that make our marriage stronger and our love for our family grow. I honestly believe that the combination of your special staff, position and everything the resort has to offer all play a roll in making our stay so magical. Whilst the resort is looking a little tired it didn’t distract from its beauty. We are however really looking forward to returning to Private Island in a few years after the upcoming renovations are completed. It’s exciting for both Heidi and I to plan for another trip and gives us something special to look forward to. Again thank you to all the staff who made our stay so special, especially Tita. We really leave Tita and would adopt her if we could. Thanks again and see you in a few years. Adrian & Heidi M..

the Orana Adrian and Heidi M.! The whole team thanks you for your excellent comment and is happy to read that your stay on our beautiful tropical island was extraordinary! We are so happy that the hospitality of our team and your reunion with Tita has made your 10th anniversary so special, as have all the hotel's services and surrounding landscapes. We thank you again and we look forward to seeing you soon in our little corner of paradise! Mauruuru roa! Conciergerie Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

Carol A. D. Couples - 22/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Loved staying at Sofitel in Bora Bora! It was a dream come true! The only minor thing we would change is to not charge for water during dinner or at least let guests know there is a fee. We knew the next night to bring water from the room! As well, cocktails should be free at a cocktail party or rename it a champagne party! Other than that everything was perfect! Except that it had to end!

Dear Carol and D., we thank you for your very good score and are delighted that your stay at Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island was magical! We take note of your comments and thank you for them. We look forward to welcoming you to the heart of the Pacific Pearl. Nana! Concierge Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort.

Frank B. Couples - 19/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The experience was fantastic. the only negative thing that comes to mind and it's very minimal is that some things were inconsistent at times. For example one evening a drink was prepared with a magnificent decoration. the next evening the same drink had no decoration at all. one morning the capachino was amazing. the next morning there was half a cup and seemed different. Again no big deal but we noticed it. otherwise fantastic.

Dear Mr. Frank B., we thank you for your very good comment and are happy to know that the kindness of our team has made your stay on our small tropical island so fantastic! We thank you for your comments, which we take note of. We look forward to welcoming you back to the heart of the Pacific Pearl.

Deej Families - 17/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful including the team who greeted us upon arrival at the airport, on the dock, at reception, at the spa, the restaurant, and of course housekeeping who did a beautiful job decorating our bed. Our room was large and airy and very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and the dining area had a spectacular view of the lagoon and surrounding mountains. There are many sitting / lounging areas to choose from all with unbelievable views of the water and island. The boat rides into town were more limited than we’d hoped for but not a major concern. The staff were very knowledgeable about activities to choose from. We had a wonderful visit and didn’t want to leave.

Dear Deej, Thank you very much for your very good comment. The Sofitel team is delighted to know that you have been won over by its hospitality and the various services it offers. We are also happy to read that your bungalow and the restaurant and the magnificent view it offers of the lagoon and Mount Otemanu have more than pleased you. We look forward to welcoming you to French Polynesia soon. Mauruuru roa and see you soon! Concierge Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island & Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort.
