Over the centuries, the South Pacific has lured explorers and artists with its exotic landscapes and quiet, inviting hospitality. At InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, you'll discover the magic for yourselves. This secluded, environmentally savvy hideaway resides on Motu Pitu Aau, off the French Polynesian island of Bora Bora.

Relaxation comes in a variety of forms, from drifting in the freshwater infinity pool on the beach to treatments in the Southern Hemisphere's first Thalasso Spa. Spend an afternoon in a kayak or outrigger canoe, and then hit Le Sand's Bar & Restaurant on the white sand beach for an early evening cocktail. Excellent diving reveals coral, sharks, rays and about 1,000 species of tropical fish, and singular activities include frond weaving and stargazing sessions.

Best holiday ever. Intercontinental Thalasso Spa was fabulous - chic, relaxed , barefoot luxury - beauty at every turn. The resort is on the edge of best holiday ever at the Intercontinental Thaladdo perched on the edge of the the reef - facing an endless blue lagoon with the sacred mountain as backdrop. A short walk through the tropical green behind brings you to the wild pacific with stunning views of the islands in the distance. There’s a gorgeous infinity pool area, tennis, pool, kayaks and paddle boards lovely beach bordering the turquoise water with hammocks and relaxing armchair pods and inlet for snorkeling with fish and coral and the crystal water . All the rooms are overwater bungalows - spacious with sitting area, study area, bedroom, huge closet and gorgeous bathroom - elegant but chic with natural driftwoody touches and glass coffee tables which you can slide open to feed the fish and lovely terrace The view of the lagoon from the huge window opposite the bed was heaveny. Our bungalow was far out and the kids loved jumping from the platform straight into the ocean. Only warning - make sure the hotel checks your ladder’s firmly attached and removes algae from it. We had a near- miss accident where the ladder was loose, a step fell off and we all ended up falling in trying to help each other with wooden step flying at us. All ended up bruised, scared and stung by the algae. My daughter was really badly stung with a sprained arm - but t it could have been much worse the water was deep Hotel had trouble understanding the seriousness. They fixed the ladder which then broke again. But then came back and fixed it properly and cleared the algae and gave us two massages and a bottle of rose. Staff could not have been nicer on the matter but the assistant manager was rude and defensive and needlessly unhelpful later over a late check out and day room - the staff sorted it out for a modest fee once he’d gone - there were plenty of rooms available. Especially if you have kids - go for a room nearer the shore and make sure they check the ladder and clear the stinging algae before you settle in. But overall it was fantastic - much prefer to neighboring hotels - same standard c of rooms for a better price and a much more coler vibe, and a fun mix of guests. Food was lovely - great barefoot restaurant on the beach and two others. The whole place was absolutely magical Genuinely best holiday ever - we can’t wait to go back.

A big thank you to Marine and Alex for making our trip super special! We loved our bungalow over the water. We were made to feel on top of the world! The concierge was amazing thank you ladies! Breakfast was delightful though it could have been a little better we had to wait for a along time for our eggs. But the tuna with coconut milk was a daily favorite. Fresh fruit and cheese was great everyday. There was a coral garden that was great we got to see clown fish and some eels. That was so fun. My new husband loved it and we got to feed the fish. The basket weaving was great with all other activities. Their up scale restaurant was great the lamb two ways was out of this world! And the rolls were the best I ever had! Was a little pricey but worth it!

We spent 4 amazing nights at this resort this past week. Truly paradise. We were greeted at the airport by Marie, an intern with less than a month left at the resort. She was very through in her tour of the resort. Got us to our room and check in went smoothly. We arrived after 7pm. We then went to Bubbles Bar. What a great time we had with our wonderful bartender, Adrien. He was so entertaining with the way he took the time to decorate each drink ordered. We loved him so much that we went there every evening. We love our Villa and view. Ate lunch a few times at the poolside Reef restaurant and the food was very good. Overall we had a great experience with the resort and staff was very friendly and attentive. We had a late flight so they offered us a day room, which was perfect. I recommend the 4x4 and jet ski excursion with Matira Jet Ski. They met us a Le Moana and it was a short walk to their location. Great views both parts of the tours. We booked direct with them via email and it was cheaper that way. Spa experience was wonderful! On another note, this vacation was part of a 8 day trip which included 4 nights in Tahiti (Intercontinental Tahiti Resort) We wish we had spent more time at Thalasso.

Just got back from 5 days at the Intercontinental Resort (Thalasso). Just WOW! One of the most beautiful places in the world. The view of the mountain was better here than any other hotel in Bora Bora. (We jet-skied around the entire island so we know) The bungalows are floating right on top of the world's largest natural swimming pool. We brought floaties and lived on the water. Food is great, sensible portions so you don't gain a ton of weight except for the fabulous breakfast buffet where you simply must pace yourself with the chocolate croissants. Great staff (except for one snooty waiter) and housekeeping took excellent care of our room. You are pampered from the moment you arrive. My suggestions? Go to a tanning booth for at least a week before you come. We got burned the very first day with our unbridled enthusiasm for the gorgeous lagoon, then had to cover up with t-shirts the rest of the time. You're so comfortable in the water, you forget how strong the sun really is. Buy a lock to put up in the Love Garden beforehand. I had ours engraved as a surprise for my husband and he loved it. Don't schedule a jet boat ride if you have back issues! I guess I'm getting old. The stingray/shark/coral snorkel dive is a must. Women, get lash extensions before you go so you never have to wear make-up but still look great in all the photos. You don't want to worry about running mascara everytime you get in the water. Finally, don't arrive too early- rooms are not usually available until 4 and if you arrive at 10 am after an all-night flight, you don't feel like taking a swim and enjoying the lovely facilities. You just want to take a nap! I'd spend a night or two in Tahiti, get refreshed, then fly over to Bora Bora. You don't want to waste a day getting into a new sleep routine. Time here is too precious. Special thanks to the manager of the hotel. He is very present on the grounds and will stop and chat with you about anything you'd like to know, anytime. It's obvious he loves what he does and cares deeply about his guests. I'm so glad we came. The Intercontinental met all our expectations.
