InterContinental Resorts French Polynesia is pleased to announce that the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa and the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort were both honored by readers in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2017 on the top five list of “The Best Resorts in the South Pacific.”
The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is located on a virgin beach on Motu Piti Aau with breathtaking views of Bora Bora’s majestic Mount Otemanu. Known for its exemplary service to its guests, the resort features a number of unique attributes, including: luxurious overwater villas each with a split-level terrace and sundeck for easy access to the turquoise waters of the lagoon; two of the finest culinary experiences in French Polynesia at its restaurants Reef and Le Corail; and the first overwater wedding chapel with glass bottom floor in French Polynesia. The resort just unveiled 10 overwater villas with private infinity pools and will debut four new overwater Brando Suites Bora Bora in December 2017 which each feature 3,400 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space and uninterrupted, 180-degree views of Mount Otemanu.
The resort’s Deep Ocean Spa by Algotherm is the very first spa to utilize the benefits of deep-sea water and minerals extracted from the Pacific Ocean in its signature spa treatments. And, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa‘s romantic Secret Garden of Love offers couples the opportunity to symbolize their eternal devotion by sealing their love with a lock in Polynesian style in the resort’s botanical garden.
“Thank you to the readers of Travel + Leisure for this prestigious honor,” said Stephane Massarini, General Manager, InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. “Every day we look forward to providing our guests with an extraordinary stay in Bora Bora.”
Adorned by white-sand beaches and an azure lagoon, the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort features beach bungalows, lagoon overwater bungalows, and a Poevai overwater suite with direct access to the water below. The resort is located on the south side of the main island, at the famous Matira point, which is recognized as one of the most beautiful sites in French Polynesia.
The InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort features Noa Noa Restaurant which serves French, Polynesian and international cuisine. It is well-known for its Polynesian evenings that feature Tahitian food and traditional songs and performance. The resort’s Vini Vini Bar & Restaurant overlooks the beach and lagoon and serves a variety of drinks and light meals and snacks. As a special Tahitian touch, guests can indulge in a romantic dinner or a private canoe-delivered breakfast within the privacy of their bungalows.
In addition to the two InterContinental Bora Bora resorts on the list, Pacific Beachcomber also owns The Brando, on the private island of Tetiaroa, which was awarded “Top Resort in the South Pacific.”
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the world’s best resorts in the South Pacific by Travel + Leisure,” said Laurence Levy, General Manager, InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort. “Our exceptional staff is dedicated to providing our guests with an experience that exceeds expectations and is truly memorable.”
