With dramatic volcanic peaks and an aquamarine lagoon backdropping expansive lush gardens, the InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa is your gateway to the archipelago of French Polynesia.
Spread over 25 acres, it’s the best 5 star accommodation in Papeete, located just two kilometres from Tahiti’s Faa’a international airport.
The large reception area offers a balcony with sweeping views over the ocean and towards Moorea. There’s one huge swimming pool in front of the hotel and another smaller pool fronting the ocean. The hotel boasts one of the best Polynesian dance performances in French Polynesia.
The rooms are located within ten 3-storey hotel blocks, all fully air-conditioned. Garden Rooms are located at the far end of the property in landscaped gardens behind the Lagoon View Rooms which all face the ocean. Panoramic Rooms are located in two hotel blocks fronting an artificial beach.
Each Classic Room measures 26 square meters inside, and features a private terrace or balcony with seating for two. Traditional wooden furnishings and timber floors create a warm ambiance, while wide sliding glass doors let in incredible natural light. Each includes cable TV and a private bathroom with bathtub.
The hotel has two international cuisine restaurants, one large area under the main reception where buffet breakfast and lunch is served, and a smaller more intimate dining experience in an overwater setting.
