Things To Do

Dining

Inspiring locations. Meals to savor.
In one of the world's most stunning locations, Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach & Private Island offers four distinct restaurants and bars, each offering an unforgettable gourmet discovery.

With its own ahimaa, the traditional pit oven used by locals, Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach & Private Island also features weekly Tahitian Tamaaraa feasts where pork, chicken, fish and vegetables are wrapped in banana leaves and baked for hours on hot stones. The feast is accompanied by a local show featuring traditional dancing in colorful costumes and beautiful French Polynesian music.

Latitude 16: Straight from the sea
A paradise of culinary delights, Latitude 16 takes full advantage of the island's bountiful fare and offers a diverse array of French, international and local dishes.

Inside the décor is inspired by local tribal tattoos, with ironworks representing the local fishermen's nets. Outside, an extensive deck juts out of the lagoon so guests can watch colorful reef fish swimming by, while the sound of native drums and ukulele fill the air.

Wakaba Japanese Teppanyaki: Sizzling Teppanyaki
An ultra-stylish modern setting for an authentic dining experience with teppanyaki tables, Japanese specialties, fresh sushi and theme menus.

Gleaming stainless steel, natural wood and stone features, combine with the mesmerizing spectacle of chefs deftly wielding teppanyaki spatulas as they show off their skills on the hotplate.

Should guests catch any bounty during their fishing excursions, the chefs can prepare this either as sushi or traditional Polynesian dishes.

Hurricane Bar: Evoking Hollywood.
Named after Dino Laurentis' film which starred Mia Farrow (and for which the resort was originally built), Hurricane Bar is the perfect setting for exotic cocktails or alfresco poolside snacks, with theme nights and live entertainment. The stunning bar, inlaid with mosaic tiles in silver and red, sparkling mirrored lights and comfortable red-cushioned chairs, takes in stunning views over the pool on one side and the lagoon on the other.
