Video #1 of 2

Only resort in Bora Bora with its own private island. Double experience: beach side & private island side. LeSpa over the water with 4 treatment rooms. In house diving center. Botanical garden. Coral garden for snorkeling & diving. 360° panorama on Bora Bora Lagoon & island.


Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific is often called the most beautiful island in the world. Jagged green peaks cascade down to white sand beaches and shimmering blue lagoons. In the unparalleled Matira Bay nestles Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort.

A quintessential Bora Bora beach resort, the luxury hotel sits on a sparkling beach with lush grounds dotted by hibiscus flowers and tropical blossoms. Meander the tropical landscape and explore the riches of the island.

For the most indulgent villa experience, Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resorts, over water bungalows, suspend guests over the lagoon. Gaze at the watery world below through glass in-floor viewing platforms or step directly into the sea from your terrace.

A highlight of the resort, Polynesian style bungalows showcase natural materials and forms inspired by the tropical setting. Over water bungalows perch just atop the lagoon and feature in-floor viewing platforms to watch the aquatic wonders below.

Meanwhile beach bungalows place guests directly on the white sands while other bungalows tuck guests away within the lush gardens. All bungalows offer guests luxurious indulgences from Sofitel MyBeds to deluxe French bath elixirs.

Discover one of the world's most desired destinations in exclusive Sofitel style.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Spent some of our honeymoon here over Christmas 2016. We had the best time. The resort is definitely showing signs of age and is in need of some renovations. In the end we weren't there for the hotel room, we were there for the view and it can't be beat from the Sofitel Marara.

Review:   Friendly & fun staff. But pillows are stinky. Probably from all the previous customers sleeping on them with wet hair

Review:   While there are nicer resorts in Bora Bora the service is great at the Sofitel. Our over water bungalow was damaged in a storm but the hotel made every effort to accommodate us. They put us in the best bungalow available, refunded any cost differences, and took extra special care of us. We were very happy in spite of the change in room.
