Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJ1113 The best experience at a hotel/resort I've ever experienced
This intercontinental is located off a motu in Bora Bora.
Everything we experienced at this resort was amazing.
We were welcomed at the dock by a Tahitian in traditional garb, blowing a horn. During the check-in, a cold towel and tea was offered. Afterwards, a tour of the hotel was given on a cart. An early check-in request was honored, and we were in our overwater villa by 11am.
The villas were amazing.
Facing the mountain of Otemanu, the overwater villas were situated over a shallow lagoon. The depth of the water at our specific villa was maybe 2-3 meters, perfect for swimming/snorkeling off our private dock. The impeccable attention to details were amazing. Housekeeping would leave fresh flowers over the towels every day.
The only con was that a large number of tiles in the swimming pool is missing. It seemed out of place, as the rest of the resort was immaculate. Considering that the entire resort is surrounded by water, it seemed surprising that they would not just shut down the pool and replace the tiles during the non-peak season.
The activities/facilities were also great.
From the daily activities such as ray feeding, the dinner shows, to the numerous options to relax and enjoy the resort, such as the spa, our only regret was that we did not have enough time to fully experience everything that the resort offered.
Everything is expensive, of course, but it comes with the location.

I recently celebrated my birthday with my husband in this wonderful place. I could not imagine any other place to be other than this one. The management and staff were so accommodating that it felt like they knew us personally. We've enjoyed the entertainments, the activities that we booked through the concierge and the amenities that were right on our fingertips. Our room was always kept clean and they did it surreptitiously, it always made me smile.
I would like to applaud the manager who personally took care of us after a delayed check-in and went far and beyond our expectations.
I look forward to going back to this hotel.
