The Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort is set in Matira Bay, a dazzling pale blue expanse of water surrounding soft white sand beaches, towering mountains in the background on one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
Travellers and holiday-makers always feel that a trip to the Sofitel becomes one of the best memories of the holiday, while leaving the resort the only low point. And who can blame them? From Tahiti, a half an hour flight over scores of small green atolls and islands to reach Bora Bora is a breathtaking experience in itself. Once reaching the small airfield, a private speedboat whisks you away on a 20-minute exhilarating ride over luminescent blue waters to the resort.
The Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort offers its guests unparalleled views of Mount Otemanu and Matira Bay from its beachfront and overwater bungalows, while the inland residences are set amongst the resort’s acres of sweet-smelling flower gardens of hibiscus and tropical blooms. Each of the spacious bungalows are air-conditioned and come with king-size beds, free WiFi and tea/coffee makers. The bathrooms are luxuriously appointed with rain-showerheads, premium toiletries and linens.
To balance the views and the stay, the resort has acclaimed chef Jacques Belliard to woo guests’ taste buds with a fusion of French and Polynesian cuisines at the main restaurant, Latitude 16. The resort’s Hurricane Bar faces the lagoon and serves up light snacks, tropical cocktails and musical entertainment to complete the circle of fun and relaxation. There are also theme nights and Tahitian cultural entertainment to keep those holidays memorable.
To burn away the calories, there is plenty to see, do and experience in Bora Bora. Snorkelling and swimming off the Matira Beach is an unmissable activity, its beach resembling powdery white sugar, the glass-clear waters and amazing marine life adding to the magic. Then, just take a kayak off the resort’s complimentary activities desk and go explore the island. Let our South Pacific Specialists know if you’re interested in diving and fishing, and we’ll arrange charters for you to explore French Polynesia’s underwater wonderland. For the adventurous, we would recommend a windsurfing session – the feeling of soaring above the islands and lagoon is simply unmatched!
