Caring for Nature & Culture
With a global reputation as a place of extreme natural beauty, French Polynesia has numerous environmental resources that need protecting. We invite all guests to participate in our conservation programs and discover the island’s stunning biodiversity in hopes they will become invested in safeguarding the archipelago for future generations.
InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa is actively engaged in coral restoration and transplantation projects. The marine research laboratory CRIOBE (Centre de Recherches Insulaires et Observatoire de l’Environnement) offers support that enhances and helps preserve the fragile reefs surrounding our property.
The resort’s onsite Lagoonairum helps protect more than 200 local marine species, while also providing educational opportunities for guests of all ages to learn about French Polynesia’s incredible ocean biodiversity.
Our organic garden supplies the resort’s restaurants, while 10-plus beehives across the property produce honey used by our pastry team for delectable desserts. All told, our bees produce more than one ton of organic honey annually.
As they explore the resort, guests may walk our botanical and wildlife trail, which helps them learn about local flora and fauna, such as vanilla and pineapple plantations.
Our staff routinely participate in clean-up campaigns on Tahiti, taking a hands-on role in the preservation of the island’s environment and helping raising awareness among the local population.
