Sofitel Marara

Originally built by film-maker Dino de Laurentis for the film Hurricane, the Sofitel is located on Point Matira and commands an expansive stretch of beach. Featuring a total of 64-bungalows and an extremely welcoming Polynesian atmosphere, this resort is a popular choice for those not looking for the “ultra-luxury” of some of Bora Bora's other resorts. On the island's most pristine beaches, at the base of lush rolling hills, the Sofitel Marara Coralia waits to provide for your every need.

From the traditional Polynesian Flower Ceremony upon arrival to the fresh water swimming pool, the Marara ensures you the complete Bora Bora experience.

The resort offers variety of unique experiences, with 64 bungalows, half of which are found in an exotic coconut grove, bursting with tropical flowers, another 11 resting along the sandy beaches, and 21 "over-water" bungalows with decks that reach out into the lapping waters of the lagoon. These world renowned "over-water" bungalows, crafted from wood and woven pandanus, provide all imaginable comforts, while keeping in harmony with the island's natural beauty. Maximum three persons in all Bungalows.

La Perouse Restaurant takes full advantage of the island's bountiful fare. Diners look out over the peaceful lagoon and listen to the native sounds of drums and ukulele, while the staff of La Perouse prepare a surprising array of French, international and local Polynesian dishes.

Bora Bora offers you an amazing wealth of activities, and the Sofitel Marara Coralia is the ideal place to begin your daily adventures. Start with tennis and swimming on the Marara grounds, then explore this tropical paradise on bicycle. Snorkel beneath the still waters of the lagoon and watch the teeming marine life at play.
