Vacation Travel Guide

Sofitel Motu showing general coastal views and tropical scenes

Indulge in the utmost in luxury on this private island where the crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches and impeccable facilities are unforgettable. 

The Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island can be found poised on a mound of sand rising like a paradise island from the azure waters of the world-famous Bora Bora Lagoon. It is one of the most lavish resorts on the planet and its enviable location is surely its crowning glory. Experience life at its most luxurious as you while away the days relaxing, enjoying watersports and taking in the 360-degree ocean views.

Located in the southeast of the lagoon, the resort is just a short ride by boat from the mainland. The first thing guests of the five-star resort notice as they approach are the dazzling turquoise seas and the brilliant strips of fine white sand which ring the island. Step off the boat and let your toes sink into the softest sand imaginable.

Lounge in the beautifully decorated thatched cabins which jut alluringly into the sea. Step straight into the water for a cooling swim or snorkel among the iridescent tropical fish. The marine life around the Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island is thriving and the snorkeling and diving here are world class. Beginners can learn at the on-site dive center.

There is a range of exciting watersports to enjoy. Try your hand at Jet Skiing, kayaking or even deep sea fishing. For something less energetic, relax in the state-of-the-art spa or gently unwind with a yoga session on a tranquil powdery beach at sunset.

Savor the exquisite food at the island’s two restaurants, Mako Bar and Manu Tuki. Enjoy panoramic views over the lagoon and Mount Otemanu with a cocktail in hand and sample freshly caught seafood, local cuisine and international favorites. For something truly memorable, enjoy a private meal set up on a deserted beach under the stars.

The Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island is located 20 minutes by private boat transfer from the mainland’s international airport. Leave young kids at home, as the resort is exclusively designed for adults and children aged 12 or over.
