of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Accommodations are beautiful, plus a room credit daily while there was noiseless construction going on at two distant bungalows. Snorkeling is beautiful right on the hotel grounds and the food was great. I would buy liquor in the local town though, as drinks all through French Polynesia are over priced, but not necessarily watered down. The highlight- ray feeding time! Wild rays have been trained to come to the beach at a certain time for feeding. This allows for close observing and even a little interaction if you are brave!
"Perfect honeymoon escape"
We visited this hotel early January, 2017 for our honeymoon and we cannot fault one thing. This hotel is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. We arrived at the airport and greeted by the staff from the intercontinental who provided water and collected our bags. When arriving at the island your immediately greeted and taken on a tour around the beautiful grounds. Check in here is completely different, its so easy, they sit you down overlooking the beautiful water and bring refreshments while you sign and confirm your paperwork. We arrived in the morning so understandably our room wasn't ready, so they checked us into a day room until our room was ready. They have two restaurants which are equally great, the staff are really attentive and the food is amazing. We stayed on an overwater bungalow (emerald) which is in about 5feet of water perfect for cooling off, the aircon in the bungalow was really good. The best part of our stay though was the staff, I cannot emphasise this to the management more, they will go out of their way to make your stay the best, walking about the island you are constantly greeted, the ladies in concierge will organise anything for you, tours, nights out and dinner bookings, they also inflated my flamingo and delivered it to our hotel room! Special mention to the ladies that organised our helicopter flight (you need four people on the flight, so they put our name down and found another couple so we could experience this. Ladies if your into cocktails then you need to visit this place, the bar staff in particular the bar manager Sullivan were amazing they will make anything you want and it's fresh and quick, we were staying during low season so we were able to talk to the staff and learn some really amazing things about this beautiful island. We were lucky enough to be invited to a cocktail hour with some of the management one night, this was probably one of the highlights on our trip, in particular we spoke with the assist manger I believe Christoph, he sought us so much about Bora Bora and in particular the hotel and what it is doing to help the eco system around the hotel, it was really special to see someone care about the surroundings with so much passion as he did. They are currently renovating which include building new bungalows at the end, we herd hammering once or twice but nothing major and they compensate. It didn't affect our stay at all. Thank you to the wonderful staff for making our honeymoon beyond perfect, we can't wait to visit you again!
"Beautiful, Relaxing Vacation"
I'm a little late in writing this review as I've still been basking in the afterglow of this dream vacation. I have dreamed of going to Tahiti for a very long time, and this exceeded my expectations !! We had already spent 7 days on Moorea, which I also loved, and couldn't wait to finally get to Bora Bora. Flying over the island took my breath away !! The most gorgeous island I have ever seen in my life. I couldn't wait to get to the resort. We took a boat to the island, and was met by a conch blowing, and a cart waiting to take us to check in. It is almost difficult to actually take in the beauty all around you. Our over water bungalow, #110, was spacious, and the views incredible, even from the bath tub !! The resort itself is gorgeous !! Beautiful beaches with hammocks, and chairs and lounges in the shade where you could relax with a book and a cold drink, or just gaze at the beauty around you. The pool was warm and inviting with plenty of chairs, and none of the usual chair hogs that you find in other resorts. Plus the people around the pool, were awesome, giving out fresh towels or snorkel equipment. Very friendly, and during the afternoon, prepared some kind of treat pool side. The bar staff were wonderful as well, and I apologize, I wrote down all their names, and can't seem to find them. We had the breakfast and dinner plan, and I really recommend that you have some sort of meal plan here. The food is very expensive. There are two restaurants at the resort. The Reef and The Sands. They are both pretty good, and service is again, awesome. Everything we needed was handled by the staff, with friendliness and they were always helpful and cheerful. In fact, no matter how hard I try, I cannot come up with a single negative about this resort. The bed was comfortable, the water around the bungalow was warm and clear. If you ask the restaurants, they will give you bread to feed to the fish that you can watch through your viewing window. If you like you can also take a boat to the other Intercontinental Resort and have a meal or a drink there. I loved, loved, loved, this resort. The staff, the service, the incredible beauty, I would highly recommend it. If Tahiti is on your bucket list, Just go. You won't be disappointed.
"beauty in paradise"
Wife and I finally came to bora-bora in May 2016 for our anniversary, picked Thalasso among other hotels on Motu (St. Regis and Four Seasons) because of the stunning view of the mountain. The resort is beautiful, staff are very friendly, they are able to recognize us and greet with our names from the second day. All room are over water bungalows, with separate living room, balcony and view decks. We loved the main beach and ray feeding every afternoon. Just get a coconut and sit on the beach, with the view of Otemanu, I am sold for this. there is a small lagoon for snorkeling, calm water however not as much fish as we expected. The ice cream from the stand close by is very good, vanilla is the one to go. Concierge desk is very helpful, we book most activities with them, price is reasonable. Will return when we come back to bora bora next time.
A beautiful hotel with stunning views. The service is faultless with management always visible and on site. Stephane, the general manager, is always visible and takes the time to make sure you are having an awesome stay (like others have stated). Barbara on the front desk was always on hand to help with any requirements and always made us laugh. The location is awesome and the staff along with management make sure your stay will be faultless. We had a standard bungalow for three nights and upgraded to a diamond status bungalow for the last two nights (crazy views of the mountain!). As per the main reviews, just book it - it is so worth the expense!!!
