The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is located on a virgin beach on Motu Piti Aau with breathtaking views of Bora Bora's majestic Mount Otemanu. Known for its exemplary service to its guests, the resort features a number of unique attributes, including: 80 luxurious overwater villas each with a split-level terrace and sundeck for easy access to the turquoise waters of the lagoon; two of the finest culinary experiences in French Polynesia at its restaurants Reef and Corail; and the first overwater wedding chapel with glass bottom floor in French Polynesia.
The resort's Deep Ocean Spa by Algotherm is the very first spa to utilize the benefits of deep-sea water and minerals extracted from the Pacific Ocean in its signature spa treatments. It was also the first resort in the world to produces its own air-conditioning from water extracted from the ocean.
Adorned by white sand beaches and a turquoise lagoon, the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort features 64 junior suite-sized individual bungalows, including 50 overwater bungalows. The resort is located on the south side of the main island, at the famous Matira point, which is recognized as one of the most beautiful sites in French Polynesia. The hotel features glass-bottom coffee tables which look into the natural aquarium of the lagoon and slide open, allowing guests to feed the fish below.
The resort offers French-inspired fare at its main restaurant Noa Noa and cocktails and signature dishes at Vini Vini Bar and Restaurant. It is also well-known for its Polynesian evenings that feature Tahitian food and traditional songs and performances. Additionally, as a special Tahitian touch, guests can indulge in a private canoe-delivered breakfast within the privacy of their bungalows.
