Set in Moorea’s tranquil surroundings is the InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa, a luxurious retreat with mountains on one side and the glittering expanse of the Pacific Ocean on the other. The resort is spread over 18 hectares on the northwest corner of the island, which is just a seven-minute flight away from Tahiti. The 4-star resort lies around 25 kilometres from the airport, which is less than an hour’s ride along Moorea’s beautiful coastline. Unlike commercialised islands like Bora Bora, Moorea is straight out of nature’s history book, with heavily wooded forests, rare species of birds and flowers, unspoilt beaches and coral reefs full of marine life.
The InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa offers travellers a wide variety of choice when it comes to accommodation, but never compromising on comfort factor or the scintillating views. From its Lanai Rooms to Garden Pool Bungalows, Overwater Bungalows and Beach Bungalows, all carry its hallmarked level of comfort – king-size beds, spacious ensuite bathrooms with bathrobes, premium toiletries and linens and balconies/patios looking out towards the beautiful landscape of Moorea.
Outside the rooms and suites are a host of activities to keep families, couples, solo travellers and adventure enthusiasts happy for days. The Moorea Dolphin Centre is an undeniable attraction, where visitors get to know about these friendly mammals and their habits. Then, a boat tour of the island via Opunohu Bay and Cook’s Bay will introduce tourists to all the magic and earthly exotica of Moorea. Hideaway Holidays Tip:Look out for flying fish and pods of wild dolphins while on the tour. For adventure lovers, an ATV safari of Moorea’s forests is as enthralling as it is exciting. Go deep into the forests to discover rare flowers, fruits and hidden waterfalls while tropical birds of every kaleidoscopic colour fly around above you. Of course, when in Moorea, it is imperative to go swimming and snorkelling among its beautiful coral reefs – snorkellers will be surrounded by tropical fish of every imaginable species and colour! Diving enthusiasts need only to drop a line in our Enquiry Form; we will organise spectacular diving charters for you to explore the island’s amazing marine life. From whales to sharks and rays – just stay down long enough and everything will check you out.
Moorea’s remoteness from the outside world should not stop travellers from enjoying the InterContinental’s wide choice in wining and dining. The Shell Restaurant is known for its fine dining and variety in chef-mandated menus. For amazing continental breakfasts by the lagoon, one needs only to head to the Fare Nui restaurant; while the Fare Hana woos patrons with a casual, laid-back dining atmosphere. The Beach bar and the Motu Iti bar vie with each other to provide the most chilled-out ambience by the pool and beach. The Resort also organises regular Polynesian feast nights, which are must-attend events in terms of fun, gaiety and feasting!
Moorea is very ‘undiscovered’ and pristine when compared to its Tahitian sisters, like Bora Bora, revelling in its true, down-to-earth Polynesian spirit and natural bounty – and the InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa is a rare luxury resort in such surroundings.
