"The most incredible resort by far!"
Everyone is so friendly. Service is what you pay for, excellent!!! It was the most memorable trip ever. We signed up for IHG rewards program so we will definitely come back to this resort again. They have so many activities and they provide all equipment for snorkeling or kayak, or paddle board. The overwater diamond otemanu bungalow is just perfect!!! Love everything here!!!
"What a place!"
Last week my family visited this resort. Our overwater bungalow Was beyond our expectations. We swam right off our deck and fed fish from our living room coffee table. All employees were amazing including the server at the Sands Restaurant who would open it a bit early for lunch when we were checking out. The resort said they were full but we never felt crowded nor waited for any meals. We were not sure why dinner reservations were required when there were many empty tables at 730. Maybe people ate later. The beach was wonderful and the daily feeding of the Rays was very informational. Check in and out was timely. Be sure and check weather before booking. Sept to Nov. are usually a good time to visit. We had some rain but not enough to bother us.
"A Dream come true"
WOW, from the minute we stepped off the plane and walked up to the desk of the Intercontinental where we were greeted with a lei, luggage was put onto the boat going to our hotel for about a 15 minute ride thru some of most gorgeous water ever seen. When we arrived at the dock we were treated like royalty every day of our 5 night stay. The hotel and grounds are pristine, and the over water bungalows were beyond pictures. What really makes this hotel is it's people, AMAZING!!! Don't pay more for the Four Seasons or ST. Regis, because all the GREAT employees are at the Intercontinental Thalasso spa. The spa was amazing, which my wife and i used once for our massage. The food was wonderful, and we were greeted in the morning at breakfast by name from the second day on. My wife asked for a salad that she had in Moorea, AND they made it up for her, then the next day at lunch asked her if she wanted that salad again.WOW. The Canoe breakfast was a wonderful surprise for my wife and worth it. We did the Helmet dive, which was amazing, they took away all fears for my wife. We also did a snorkeling tour, and our guide was great. Topdive scuba diving is on-site and i did 2 dives that were GREAT. Bora Bora has been a dream of mine for many years, and going there was truly a Dream come true, but what really made it SO special was the people at The Intercontinental Thalasso spa, and the property itself. We have already started talking about returning.. WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
"Paradise on Earth"
Everything for our honeymoon was perfect from the pickup from the airport till the checkout. All the staff were super nice. The views were amazing. We did lots of research and after our stay we can confirm that none of the hotels have a better view of the mountain than intercontinental. And the food was super delicious, especially the fruits in breakfast.
Bora Bora without a doubt was the most amazing place to go for our honeymoon!!! The entire trip felt like a complete dream. When we were on our boat on the way to our hotel, we were excited to see which was ours as we passed a couple huts along the way. We started to come up to a new set of huts and I remember saying "wow those are SO nice...that must be one of the top resorts here" and it was OURS! We couldn't believe how amazing the hotel and rooms were. I've stayed in plenty of really nice hotel rooms in my life but WOW this was the nicest by far. It was like a complete fairytale. We never wanted to leave. We really had no complaints at all, but just wanted to point out a few things for future travelers. If you are a total foodie and food is a deal breaker..this might not be the place for you. The food was pretty disappointing, especially for how expensive it was (do not expect to spend less than $250 per dinner). The pasta and pizza that we tried there was without a doubt the worst we had ever had in our entire lives. BUT the fries and ice cream were top notch!! There was one night that we went to a BBQ at Sands and it was the only night that we weren't disappointed at all. The meat was great! Other than that, don't expect too much out of the food. Another thing that we hadn't realized was how completely quiet the resort would be. We felt like we were the only ones there and they had mentioned that it was 80% booked! We had to make a reservation for dinner every night and there would only be about 3 other couples there! It was pretty silly. If you enjoy nightlife and that is a requirement for your trip, this is not the place for you. It is very very slow. BUT this being our honeymoon, we did not mind one bit :) Our excursions allowed us to see most of the resorts in Bora Bora, and we are SO happy that we picked the intercontinental. It looked like one of the most beautiful ones with definitely the best view and huts! We would go back in a heart beat!!!!! We miss it already.
