Lonely Planet review
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a mellower spot to maroon yourself for a languid holiday. This Sofitel strikes a perfect balance between luxury, seclusion, privacy (there are only 31 units) and convenience – on hilly Motu Piti Uu Uta, it’s just five glorious minutes by shuttle boat from the main island, so you’re not too far from the action. The only dilemma: a well-appointed overwater bungalow or an elegant unit positioned on a greenery-shrouded hillside, with heavenly views of the lagoon? Due to its position, it gets plenty of sunshine, even in late afternoon. Another draw is the proximity of one of Bora Bora’s best coral gardens.
