About Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach and Private Island overlooks Matira Bay on the Polynesian island of Bora Bora.

The resort is comprised of 55 rooms and an equal number of bungalows.  All rooms include air conditioning and Wi-Fi.  The property’s bungalows – each crafted in Polynesian style – are set over the nearby lagoon and feature viewing platforms that allow guests to make the most of the sea view.

Special treatments and therapies can be booked in the resort’s spa.  A fitness center and pool are available on-site, but more adventurous guests may wish to rent a bike and explore the tropical surrounds on two wheels.

Set within the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach and Private Island, the Latitude 16º restaurant offers international French and Polynesian cuisine.  The Hurricane Bar serves up poolside snacks, drinks and cocktails.

Located near Vaitape, the largest city on the island, and in close proximity to Matira Beach.

Positive Reviews

A tropical paradise

If you're seeking a tropical paradise, look no further than this resort. For many, the palm trees, turquoise seas and white sands immediately set the scene for an idyllic stay.

The best bungalows

In terms of room type, the bungalows come highly recommended. As if the vista itself wasn't enough, those who stayed in these suites said that they routinely spotted schools of tropical fish and rays during their visit.

Hot with honeymooners

It's hardly surprising, but this resort's romantic, secluded setting made it very popular with honeymooners.

Negative Reviews

Paradise lost?

Sadly, for some, the spell of paradise was quickly broken. While set in a stunning location, in some instances, this hotel appeared to be let down by its own staff. Unhappy visitors commented that help was not immediately forthcoming, with even minor requests for room keys and assistance with air conditioning causing issues. Yet in odd contrast, it seems that a few individual members of staff were extremely helpful and some made a point of thanking them by name.

Aging beauty of a resort

The resort appears to be showing its age, with lots of comments on the outdated look of the hotel structure and worn look of the grounds.

Multiple amenity issues

There were issues reported with some of the amenities. Air conditioning caused problems for multiple guests, with quite a few reporting struggling or malfunctioning units. This reportedly marred the stay of a few reviewers. Others also reported a sluggish Wi-Fi connection and lastly, quite a few were dismayed at being charged for the hotel shuttle boat to and from the island's airport.
