8 out of 10

Perhaps the least self-conscious resort on Bora Bora, laid-back Sofitel Marara is sandwiched between the coastal road and the lagoon, which doesn’t exactly make it ideal for peace or privacy. It features various accommodation options, including beach units, garden units, overwater bungalows and the odd ‘half overwater, half on the beach’ bungalow.

Most units need a freshen-up and the public areas are getting tired, but the beachfront location is the saving grace and there's a great coral garden. Facilities include an infinity pool, a bar and two restaurants.
