Agent Tips

  • One of our favorite excursions is the private shark & stingray snorkel excursion which explores the vast Bora Bora lagoon from the shallow depths where you will encounter the gentle rays, to the brightly colored coral gardens teeming with fishes. You'll then be guided outside the reef to snorkel with a peaceful community of black-tip reef sharks in the deep blue seas with spectacular views of Mt. Otemanu.
  • After all of this communing with nature, your personal Tahitian guide can escort you by boat to a secluded private island for a traditional Polynesian BBQ lunch in the shade of coconut trees and tropical breezes.

Pristine and classically French Polynesian.

The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa offers exclusively overwater villas and suites, all providing stunning views of the turquoise lagoon and ancient Mount Otemanu. These villas feature lagoon view master bedrooms, expansive living rooms, glass-bottom floors that allow guests to observe the marine life below, outdoor showers, and a large outdoor terrace for lounging. Each accommodation also has direct access to the lagoon from the private balconies. Our favorite categories are the Teremoana one and two-bedroom overwater suites, elegantly designed with a Polynesian décor using local, organic materials. These villas feature private infinity pools, outdoor showers, and sundecks with direct access to the lagoon.

A must-visit destination for those seeking rest, rejuvenation, and a unique wellness experience.

The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is renowned for its luxurious Deep Ocean Thalasso Spa, which offers a range of treatments using seawater drawn from the depths of the Pacific Ocean. The seawater is filtered and purified to ensure its quality, and it is used in the spa's hydrotherapy pools, steam baths, and treatment rooms.

The spa's facilities include private treatment rooms, overwater bungalows, and outdoor gazebos, all of which offer stunning views of the lagoon and Mount Otemanu. The spa's signature treatments include the Deep Ocean Spa Ritual, which incorporates a range of massage techniques and uses seawater to help soothe and revitalize the body, and the Thalasso Jet Shower, which combines high-pressure water jets and seawater to provide a therapeutic and invigorating experience.

In addition to its Thalasso treatments, the spa also offers a range of traditional Polynesian massages and beauty treatments, as well as yoga and Pilates classes. The spa's experienced therapists use a range of natural products, including coconut oil and Tahitian black pearl powder, to create a truly indulgent and relaxing experience for guests.
