The InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa is the largest luxury resort on the island of Tahiti. The resort opened in 1974 as a Travel lodge, was later rebranded into Parkroyal and Beachcomber and in 2001 was again rebranded as an InterContinental resort. Since then, the resort has been fully refurbished three times, the last one done in 2018.
The resort is located just five minutes from the airport, making it very convenient as it doesn’t involve major transportation logistics. Despite this proximity to downtown, the hotel provides a nice Polynesian oasis with some of the best views of Moorea on the horizon. The rooms and overwater bungalows are tastefully decorated and offer all the amenities of a deluxe international resort.
Here’s some images and how the property describes their Junior Suite Overwater Motu Bungalow:
We have eight overwater bungalows built around our own private motu (islet). They measure 37 square metres indoor (398 square feet) and have a spacious 32-square-metre (344-square-foot) deck, situated directly over the lagoon, next to the Lagoonarium and the main pool. These bungalows can host up to two adults and one child using existing bedding.
All Junior Suite Overwater Bungalows include: private terrace, air conditioning, flat-screen TV with satellite channels, direct dial international phone, internet, safe, refrigerator (with mini-bar stocked upon request), 110V/220V outlets, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, maid service daily.
Here is our video review and commentary on this villa:
In my opinion, the drawback of many luxury resorts in that corner of the world is the isolation. This is not the case here as this property is accessible, as it is located on the main island and five minutes away from the airport.
Standard rooms in this property sell from$250+/50,000 points. The Motu overwater bungalow is a nice 2-category upgrade for those with Royal Ambassador status, as this room sells for $800+ per night!
