Motu Piti Aau – the ‘islet of two hearts’ – rises up out of the turquoise waters that surround the main island of Bora Bora. Bright blue lagoon on one side, sapphire South Pacific on the other, this slender strip of land is home to French Polynesia’s most exclusive InterContinental Resort.
The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa offers a truly unique 5-star experience. Facing the main island of Bora Bora and the majestic Mount Otemanu, our eco-friendly resort is perfectly placed to provide guests the best of Bora Bora: spectacular views, luxury overwater villas, lush tropical gardens and a wide range of water sports and activities.
Also on offer is the Deep Ocean Spa – the first seawater therapy spa in French Polynesia. Using nutrients extracted from the deep-sea water of the South Pacific, our spa promises a truly relaxing and rebalancing experience, combining luxurious modern products with ancient Polynesian know-how. The same deep-sea water is used in the eco-friendly air-conditioning system, which draws upon these waters as a source of cooling.
Located in a convenient position to explore all of Bora Bora, and enjoying unrivalled views of Mount Otemanu, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is a true haven of indulgence. Offering adventure, relaxation, tranquillity and romance, our blissful Tahitian resort promises the vacation of a lifetime.
80 spacious overwater villas are decorated in a sleek, contemporary island style, with touches of traditional Polynesian design creating a comfortably chic appeal. Local handicrafts, bamboo and pandanus weavings and carved mother-of-pearl lend an unmistakably Polynesian flavour, while the latest in-room technology ensures a thoroughly modern tropical escape.
Measuring 95 square metres each, including a 30-square-metre terrace, all overwater villas share the same layout, differing only in position and view. Each features a spacious furnished sundeck with outdoor freshwater shower, a shaded area and a sundeck with direct access to the water.
Indoors, you’ll find a comfortable bedroom and living room complete with glass-bottomed coffee table that acts as a window to the lagoon and the fishes below. Each bathroom features a double vanity, a shower and a separate bathtub that faces a picture window, showcasing wide lagoon views. All villas are cooled via an eco-friendly, state-of-the-art, deep-sea water air-conditioning system, with additional ceiling fans to enhance the circulation of fresh lagoon breezes.
Deep Ocean Spa
The jewel of the resort, the luxurious Deep Ocean Spa is nestled in the motu’s lush tropical gardens, lagoon on one side and the vast blue expanse of the South Pacific Ocean on the other.
The first spa in the region to offer thalassotherapy (seawater therapy), we provide an array of treatments that utilise nutrients extracted from the deep-sea waters of the South Pacific.
Drawing on modern wellness techniques as well as ancient Polynesian healing rituals, the spa menu promises to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit.
Redefining the spa concept in French Polynesia, the Deep Ocean Spa is a true destination spa, complete with glass-bottomed treatment rooms for lagoon views while you’re being pampered.
