French Polynesia is known for its richness and diversity. The western portion of the Islands, known as the Leeward Islands, is where you find the shimmering pearl of the Pacific: Bora Bora and The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, which truly takes luxury resort living to another breath-taking level.
Amid the turquoise waters of Bora Bora’s alluring lagoon, you’ll find Motu Piti Aau, meaning ‘islet of two hearts,’ and the lush InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. Here, heart-stopping panoramas are punctuated with overwater villas cooled sustainably by the ocean. Generous Polynesian hospitality enhances exceptional destination dining. And electric seascapes frame holistic wellness experiences at French Polynesia’s singular Thalasso Spa.
The 4000 m² Deep Ocean Spa is situated at the very heart of the resort, offering areas for hydrotherapy, skin therapies, state-of-the-art treatments, and gentle energy. The glass-floored overwater bungalows will allow you to admire the marine life during your relaxing treatments, either alone or with your partner. The spa also enjoys a comprehensive fitness center and bliss-inducing relaxation lounge.
During your stay, you have a vast range of land, ocean, or sky adventures at your fingertips, including the onsite Lagoonarium, a protected habitat and coral nursery that is home to a thrilling array of marine creatures, rainforest tours, diving expeditions, mountain tours and shopping trips into town, as well as a wide range of aquatic activities, helicopter tours, parasailing, and skydiving.
In terms of culinary experiences, guests can enjoy everything from fine French dining to barbecue buffets and American breakfasts to fresh tropical fruits. International cuisine is not all that’s featured. Authentic local dishes from French Polynesia also serve to excite guests’ tastebuds across an array of casually elegant restaurants and bars. Theme dinners shine a spotlight on traditional Polynesian culture through food, song, and dance, while Romantic Dinners, set in enchanting and intimate island locales, are a must for honeymooners. Additionally, 24-hour room service allows you to stay in, savoring new flavors and champagne under the stars on your very own over-water terrace.
This mesmerizing resort boasts 84 spacious overwater villas decorated in chic, contemporary island style, with touches of traditional Polynesian design.
