Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

The Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort is located on the eastern side of Matira Point toward the southern end of the island. This setting provides convenient access to some of the popular attractions on the mainland, including the town of Vaitape and the famed Bloody Mary's Restaurant. The resort features a variety of garden, beach and overwater bungalows, all of which overlook the coral reef and the ocean beyond, encompassing views of Raiatea and Taha'a. 

Italian movie producer Dino De Laurentis originally built the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort to house the crew of his 1979 film, Hurricane. Today, the resort proudly showcases vintage photos of the cast and the crew, which are on display near the aptly named poolside Hurricane Bar. Sticking with the theme of entertainment, the main restaurant, Latitude 16°, features "show" cooking with a traditional Tahitian oven used for special Polynesian nights.

Note: The Sofitel Marara Beach Resort will begin a renovation program on September 1, 2018. At this time the overwater bungalows will be closed. The entire resort will be closed from January - April 15, 2019 for renovations.
