So here we are now. Bora Bora. The island so famed for the magic it brings. We took the domestic French Polynesian carrier, Air Tahiti , from Moorea to Bora Bora.
We booked at the Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. After much deliberation (there really isn’t a plethora of hotel choices in Bora Bora, they are all 4 star at the least, and above. Or guest houses), we chose the Sofitel purely for the Private Island. The Sofitel in Bora Bora has 2 parts, one is on the main Island (which is called Sofitel Marara ) and the private island (called Sofitel Private Motu). There is a 2 minute boat ride (on demand) in between the 2, so guests at the private island can freely use the amenities in the main island (but not vice versa). We chose the private island because of reviews that it had one of the best snorkelling around Bora Bora. And we weren’t disappointed.
We were given fresh coconut drinks and more cool towels. And were briefed about the ameneties of the private island, where to have breakfast, how to request for the private transfer, etc.
