Fodor's Review

This beautiful and innovative resort features virtually all overwater bungalows, except for three two-bedroom family villas on the beachfront. It's the first in the Southern Hemisphere with a Thalasso spa, which uses deep seawater and seaweed in a long menu of therapeutic treatments. Another unique feature is the charming wedding chapel (the only resort chapel in French Polynesia) complete with a glass aisle—you can see coral and fish below—that the happy couple walks

on from the door to the altar. The resort has adopted several energy-saving practices including using seawater pumped from 2,500 feet (762 meters) below to cool the air-conditioning system. The beds in each bungalow are situated right in front of floor-to-ceiling windows so you wake up with a view. Decor includes Paul Gauguin prints and Polynesian artworks. A free shuttle runs between the motu and the sister property, the InterContinental Moana Resort, at Matira Point.

Beautiful Hotel in Paradise

The InterContinental in Bora Bora is the most beautiful hotel experience. The staff is fabulous and so accomodating. The food was wonderful, especially the fish and the amazing chocolate, chocolate fudge brownie sundae, YUM!!!! The Thalasso Spa was a dream spa. While you experience a massage you can look down and see fish swimming below you in an open glass floor. What could be more relaxing. Everything about this spa was amazing. Peacefulness and

serenity. Tranquility and calmness. Who could ask for anything better. The overwater bungalows make you feel like you are on a secluded island. I can not say enough about the whole experience at this hotel from beginning to end. Truly Paradise!
