There are two Sofitel properties on Bora Bora. The Private Island shown below has a lovely view of the island of Bora Bora. The snorkeling is great here and guests have access to the "coral gardens" via a new walking path. This property is just offshore at Matira Beach where there is a fair amount of boat traffic that passes by. The resort offers a restaurant & bar as well. There is no swimming pool at the Private Island, but guests can use the one at their sister resort on the island There is also a hilltop with seating where guests have a view of the lagoon and sunset, This is a four star property. The boat transport takes you to and from their sister property the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach onshore.
If beautiful views are on your list then Sotitel Private Island is an excellent choice
