InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa is a spectacular complex on Moorea Island—a tropical oasis of fantasy, legend and romance.
Inspired by traditional Polynesian fares, the 50 over-water suite bungalows with direct access to the lagoon, 17 garden bungalow suites and 28 beach bungalows were completely redesigned and refurbished to provide unparalleled luxurious experiences for all guests.
Each bungalow has air-conditioning, overhead fans, separate sitting room, bedroom, large bathroom and a sun deck. The new exclusive Garden Bungalows all feature a private swimming pool, surrounded by lush vegetation. There are also 48 airconditioned, well-appointed twin or King Lanai rooms and a Lanai Suite.
For water lovers, sipping a tropical cocktail at the swim-up Motu One Bar, or by the newly designed swimming pool, will be a real pleasure. There are outrigger canoes and an aqua scope to explore the coral reefs, lagoon cruises, a diving centre (scuba diving and walk under the sea) waterskiing, parasailing, wave runners and the famous dolphin encounter (swim with the dolphins in the hotel lagoon).
Also well worth a visit is the Sea Turtle Care Centre and nursery which was established by the resort in partnership with the Ministry of Environment. The many land activities on offer include tennis (day and night), horseriding, beach volleyball, and 4WD safari tours.
Tropical oasis of romance
After a full day, relax at the Hélène Spa that offers natural and tropical massages, jacuzzi and beauty therapy inspired by Polynesian ancestral traditions. As the sun sinks, it’s time to enjoy a tropical cocktail at the Motu Iti Bar and its shaded terrace facing the sunset before sampling the gourmet cuisine at Fare Nui Restaurant that also features a weekly Polynesian Dinner with Mamas show. The Fare Hana all-day dining poolside restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and serves simple, fresh food. On Wednesdays, enjoy a barbecue dinner on the beach (weather permitting) with a Tahitian show, and on Saturday nights enjoy a seafood dinner on the beach accompanied by a Polynesian revue and band. For guests’ convenience, the resort provides 24-hour room service and internet access. There’s also a tour desk, a gift shop and two boutiques plus a daily craft market in the lobby. This property has also successfully obtained the Earthcheck Silver Certification 2010-2014.
