The Resort

The first all overwater villa luxury resort in French Polynesia, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa, features luxurious overwater accommodations and the finest spa facilities on Bora Bora.

The Thalasso introduced the first Thalasso and Balneo Center and Spa using the mineral rich water drawn from the Pacific Ocean at a depth of over 800 meters. The principle of this spa is to combine the energy of the ocean with the gentleness of the spa’s sights and sounds–a spa treatment is definitely a must at this resort!

The resort is also the first in the world to use an eco-friendly air-conditioning system operated by deep sea water. Let the friendly and attentive staff of the Bora Bora InterContinental Thalasso Resort see to every detail of your honeymoon, anniversary or vacation ensuring the creation of memories to last a lifetime.
