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. Overwater villas--with glass bottom coffee tables--combine Polynesian and contemporary styles, while Le Reef Restaurant boasts gourmet dining in a relaxing island setting.
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.
