Sofitel sells French Polynesia resorts to focus on Europe
Accor Hotels has announced the sale of three luxury resorts under the Sofitel brand in French Polynesia: Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort, Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island and Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort, in a move to focus on investment in Europe.
Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort boasts a prime beachfront setting on the south-eastern coastline of Bora Bora. It features 55 overwater, beachside and garden bungalows together with an exclusive range of guest facilities.
Located in the iconic crystal lagoon Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island is the only boutique luxury island resort in Bora Bora. This incredible resort contains 30 bungalows and a luxury villa, along with a restaurant, bar and host of other superb guest facilities.
Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort has frontage to one of its most attractive white sand beaches and panoramic views across to Tahiti. The property features 113 well-appointed bungalows and a wide range of guest facilities.
“As French Polynesia is directly accessible from the major international gateways of Los Angeles, Santiago, Auckland, Tokyo and Honolulu, this Portfolio should be considered of strategic importance to any group seeking a complete presence across the Asia Pacific Region, or those wanting representation in this iconic market,” said Peter Harper of JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group.
