The InterContinental Bora Bora and Thalasso Spa is a rare gem of luxurious living amidst French Polynesia’s pristine natural beauty. Set on the reef islet of Motu Piti Aau on the eastern side of Bora Bora, the resort offers a range of lavishly-appointed overwater villas with scintillating views of the island, lagoon and the nearby Mount Otemanu. From the airport at Motu Mute, the ride to the resort takes about 20 minutes.
The overwater villas have been tastefully designed to meld modern luxury with traditional Polynesian architectural touches. Woven palm-frond partitions, mother of pearl inlays, walls made of locally-sourced hardwood, artwork and handicrafts blend seamlessly with LED TVs, WiFi, outdoor pools, double vanities and bathtubs in the ensuite, air-conditioning and Bose sound systems. Keeping with the environment-friendly nature of the resort, the InterContinental Bora Bora and Thalasso Spa takes the rare initiative to use deep-sea water air-conditioning system – it utilises cutting-edge tech to reduce the resort’s electricity requirements and the overall carbon footprint.
There is no dearth of activities in Bora Bora and the InterContinental Bora Bora and Thalasso Spa takes the experiential factor a notch further. Taking a leisurely cruise around the islands is akin to starting a holiday the right way. Bora Bora’s crystal-clear waters is great for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking; the plentiful marine life around the lagoon makes it even better. From colourful reef fishes bustling around to shy sea-turtles and manta rays, every dive is unique! Visit the resort’s own lagoonarium, where over 200 species of fish are provided a safe environment to thrive or learn how to dive properly at the TOPDIVE centre before going for diving excursions in Bora Bora’s tranquil depths. On land, the activities desk is more than happy to organise market visits, tours of Mount Otemanu’s rainforests on ATVs or by hiking, along with car rentals. And when the fun gets too much, the Thalasso Spa is particularly renowned for its traditional spa and relaxation treatments.
The resort also matches and exceeds expectations when it comes to wining and dining. Set on the resort’s private white sand beach, the Sands Restaurant offers guests casual dining under the stars; the menu features local, Asian fusion and international cuisines. On the other hand, the Reef Restaurant offers authentic Polynesian and Mediterranean cuisines in a stylish, relaxed atmosphere. Couples looking to amp up the romance need to look no farther than the Le Corail, which offers gourmet dining, degustation courses and the largest wine cellar in French Polynesia itself. The Bubbles Bar, the South Beach Bar and Sands bar offer a range of venues and cocktails for evening constitutionals. Then, there are island theme nights, villa breakfasts brought by outrigger canoes and private romantic dinner under the stars… the list goes on.
