Bora Bora InterContinental Resort & Thalasso Spa – hotel review

Experience a pleasant Tahitian bliss in a isolated environment with breathtaking views and intelligible waters.

Where is it? In a azure­-blue bliss that is Bora Bora, a valuables of a French Polynesian islands. Accessible usually by boat, a review is positioned directly in front of a stately Mount Otemanu, providing a many lifelike views in a region. On one side lies a furious open ocean, and on a other (where a review faces), is a peaceful firth that is so splendid it looks as nonetheless it’s illuminated from below.

Style? Contemporary island-­chic. Each of a 80 overwater bungalows is beautifully allocated with luxe interiors and neat architecture. Traditional Polynesian aesthetics underline throughout, complementing a overwhelming healthy landscape.

The bungalows are some-more atmospheric than many civic apartments, with 5 graphic areas: bedroom, vital room, walk-in wardrobe, bathroom, and a double-level sundeck, heading right into a lagoon. Large windows underline in each room, framing a heavenly, postcard–like scenery. The coffee tables are also done wholly from potion and have removable tops, so guest are means to feed a fish from a comfort of their possess lounges. The hut­‐style bungalows are designed to fit all continue conditions: they can open right up, permitting easy entrance to a water, nonetheless can also be done to feel plush and mouth-watering if a sleet sets in. Spending a day in a vast complicated bathtub unaware a firth ‐ or examination cinema on one of a dual flat-screen televisions  wouldn’t be all that bad.

Facilities: The Thalasso Spa is one of a resort’s pivotal attractions and is deliberate to be a best in all of Bora Bora. The review also facilities 3 restaurants, a cocktail bar, a 24-hour aptness centre, a sauna and pool, tennis courts, an overwater chapel, and a recently non-stop ‘Secret Garden of Love’ – suggestive of Paris’s Pont des Arts, where guest can sign their adore with a close – an suitable underline for such a regretful destination.

Extra-­curricular: Many people (primarily couples) visit Bora Bora to relax in the sun and recharge; however, those seeking a more adventurous itinerary have a vast array of options available.

The concierge offers glass bottom boat cruises, aquabiking, aqua safaris, submarine tours, Jeep safaris, mountain trekking, ATV riding, parasailing, helicopter sightseeing rides, kite surfing, fishing trips, catamaran excursions and private boat rentals. There are also various complementary activities, including paddle-boarding, kayaking and stingray feeding each afternoon.

Food and Drink: The review has 3 restaurants: Sands, Reef, and Le Corail and a cocktail bar, Bubbles. The menus have clearly been designed to support to all tastes (you’ll find standard Western cuisine alongside some-more outlandish options), nonetheless a star equipment are a inner dishes that incorporate uninformed seafood and furnish from a region. Breakfast is served in a normal smorgasboard style, nonetheless a cook is on palm to whip adult uninformed waffles, omelettes, pancakes, and Nutella crepes. This is where a vacation anti-­diet begins… The cocktail menu is endless and resourceful during Bubbles, and Happy Hour is always a hit. The bartenders offer a common umbrella-­topped holiday cocktails and manly (yet delicious) mixes. My personal favourites were a lychee martinis and sharp margaritas.

Which room? Unlike other resorts in a area, each room is positioned over a water; so all guest can suffer a newness of diving into a firth true from their bungalow balcony. The best room difficulty would have to be a Sapphire Room (unless you’re peaceful to dash out on a Diamond Suite, that is a tip of a line). Opt for a bungalow with a perspective of a iconic Mount Otemanu, ideally a few behind from a end, where speedboats ride tourists to and from a airfield during all hours.

Best for: Couples and honeymooners – there unequivocally isn’t anywhere else on earth that is some-more suitable for a regretful escapade. Families were there, nonetheless a area as a whole is generally tailored towards couples -­ the ‘just married’ and ‘wifey’ tee shirts being ragged during a airfield done that transparent from a get-­go.

When should you go? Between Apr and Nov is famous to be a safest weather-­wise. Dec by until Mar can be utterly erratic; infrequently there will be transparent skies and sunshine, nonetheless on a flipside, there can be prolonged durations of sleet (as in bucketing down for dual weeks true – not ideal for a summer holiday). It’s really a play visiting during ‘off season,’ nonetheless a advantages are reduce prices and fewer crowds.

We visited in Mar and there was object all day, each day, nonetheless a weeks before were apparently cloudy and wet. We would suggest going during possibly a commencement or finish of high season.

Price: Around £950; though this fluctuates from high to low season.

Note: Flights from Papeete (mainland Tahiti), where many general flights arrive, don’t always arrive in time for an inner tie to Bora Bora. The InterContinental Tahiti is a good choice for an overnight stay before a morning flight; tahiti.intercontinental.com.
