InterContinental Resorts French Polynesia
A LEADING, PIONEERING CHAIN IN POLYNESIA
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is the leading chain of luxury hotels in Polynesia, and one of the first to move into the archipelago. Our resorts were able to secure the most beautiful spots in the Society Islands, where our four establishments can be found.
FOUR HOTELS, FOUR PERSONALITIES, ONE PHILOSOPHY
Tahiti is the largest of the French Polynesian islands and the gateway to the archipelago. Nestled in a sumptuous garden set in 12 hectares, the resort boasts two superb infinity pools and offers an extensive range of activities.
Surrounded by 11 hectares of lush, unspoiled vegetation, the hotel has become a sanctuary for dolphins and injured turtles. It also boasts the first spa in Polynesia, the Hélène Spa.
The ‘Moana’ Resort snuggles in between two long beaches in the shade of a splendid coconut plantation. This unique boutique hotel, situated on the main island, features a world-class private white-sand beach with a direct access to one of the world's most beautiful lagoons.
The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, situated on a barrier-reef coral island, was the first hotel in French Polynesia to place villas literally over water, standing on stilts between the ocean and the lagoon. Opened in May 2006, the resort features an eco-friendly air-conditioning system that uses cold deep-sea water extracted from the Pacific Ocean. Its spa is the first Thalasso spa in the world to tap into the benefits of deep-sea water and minerals in all its signature treatments.
Though each resort has a distinct personality, these four hotels of the InterContinental chain in French Polynesia all embrace the same philosophy. They fit in perfectly with their natural surroundings, and attach great importance to protecting both the environment and local traditions.
