The Sofitel Private Island Resort in Bora Bora is a boutique property that sits on its own motu in the clear, turquoise waters of the Bora Bora Lagoon. The resort offers incredible views looking back towards the main island and stunning lagoon. When you are in Bora Bora most resorts offer special romantic dinners. Here at the Sofitel Private Island resort they have a very unique experience different than any other resort.
What they offer is a romantic beach dinner that is a two part evening affair. You start your night at the top of the motu where you have incredible views of Bora Bora. As the sunsets, staff pop open champagne and you sit and enjoy a cold glass of bubbly, canapes and incredible sunset views. It is beautiful and very romantic. In fact, when I was enjoying the experience in Dec 2014 someone dropped to his knees and proposed to his girl friend! Thankfully she said yes as a few of us watched on taking some photos and videos for them to capture the moment.
After the sun sinks below horizon, you make you way down the tiki lit path to the beach. Here the staff have set up tables for 2 (I was with a group in the video which is why our table is larger) by candlelight. With your toes in the sand, the stars and moon twinkling in sky above, you are served a delicious meal complete with Polynesian dancers.
Often it is the added experiences you have when you are in destination that create the best long lasting memories. This is one of those evenings that you will look back fondly of and remember many years down the road. Have a look here at this short video for more about the experience…
