"The highlight of our Honeymoon!"
WOW! This was my first impression arriving on the dock at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. This was our third and final stop in FP and it truly fit the expression "saving the best for last!" (Our stops included Tahiti, Moorea and then Bora Bora). The resort was beautiful - incredibly well maintained and designed! There was always space by the infinity pool or on the pristine beach but we spent most our time in the lagoon of our OWB. The bungalow was amazing! Very spacious with a view of Mt. Otemanu from our bedroom. (the only odd thing is that we had twin beds rather than a King). The most memorable part of the resort was the incredible colour of the water which was truly stunning! We also had a wonderful romantic dinner on the beach, complete with tiki torches lining the sand to our table and tropical flowers covering the table. The food and service for our dinner was outstanding (thank you Teu!). Overall, this resort was well-worth the price and in my extensive travels (this was my 80th country) it will standout in my memory!! Thank you to all the wonderful staff that made our honeymoon so special!
"Our wedding and honeymoon "
So we will begin with the statement â€˜this review is based on our own experiences and expectations â€˜ The Intercontinental Bora Bora resort and Thalasso spa is an amazing place for many reasons. Where many people go to FP and spend several days in different resorts, we went to get married and spend our honeymoon relaxing and unwindingâ€¦.. and that is what we did. The hotel has had varied reviews but we could not fault it from the time we left the airport in Bora Bora in our private boat transfer to the time we were dropped off 15 days later by the same boat. We have both stayed in varying levels of hotels with some being poorer than others but we can honestly say this has to be the best holiday/hotel we have both stayed in. Hotel - this was located in a lagoon with some of the best views we have experienced. From every angle and area in the grounds you can see crystal clear waters, lush green vegetation and clear blue sky's ( except for 2 days when it rained heavily but you can't control the weather!) The grounds were always being swept, leaves tidied up and hotel and beach furniture was always clean. The hotel grounds were laid out in a way that it did not feel like a conventional hotel with tightly packed buildings which made it feel more personal to us and not so commercialised. Rooms - there are various levels of rooms, most having the same layout and facilities with some having infinity pools included. For us we had a â€˜diamond mountain viewâ€™ bungalow (see picture) where the view was amazing. They did not seem like a hotel room, giving you several areas to relax, and all rooms were spacious. You have external areas to sit or sunbath and a lower deck which was used in our case for sunbathing and then rolling off it into the lagoon to cool off. The water level was varied with it rising up to 8ft deep off some bungalows but there were bouys positioned at the edge of the hotel limits to stop you going too far. The facilities were great with free local tea/coffee and a fridge but if you wanted a â€˜tassimoâ€™ coffee or something from the minibar or snacks, these were at an extra cost ( talk later about that). Room service was very good with fresh water, towels and toiletries everyday and we had a turn down service every night ( something us Brits don't normally experience) Hotel Facilities - 3 restaurants, 2 of which we could use for free ( we had a breakfast, lunch and dinner meal plan) and the 3rd was and a la carte restaurant which was at an extra charge and although we did not experience it, we heard good reports about it. 2 bars, an air conditioned gym, spa, water sport equipment and the obligatory animal, fruit and odd shaped inflatable for use in the pool or off your bungalow deck. Plenty of sun loungers available and the pool boys had free use of towels, snorkels and flippers, canoes and Paddle boards. There is also a ferry /taxi service to the sister hotel (La Moana) which leaves regularly, starting at 8.15 and the last return is 22.30 but be wary that if you get the taxi after 17.00 there is a charge, before that time the return journey is free. Check with the concierge team before you get it. Food - this is where many reviews fall down but we can honestly say from our expectations we were pleasantly surprised. My now wife is â€¦ how we say.. is particular about certain foods (i.e can be fussy!) so we went with some reservations that she might not like a lot of meals but we were amazed to find that we ate something different off the menu every night (breakfast is breakfast!) and still did not try everything. We did not have a bad meal and staff were very quick to accommodate us if we wanted a different side dish or food cooked differently. Bottled Water with your meal is extra so be wary of this and we asked for tap water, which is free and good to drink, but apart from that, in our view the food was amazing. Breakfast choices was varied and although there was occasional issues with fruit flys ( restaurant is open planned and does not have walls) it was always fresh and replenished quickly. Drinks were expensive in comparison to what we are used to but we were expecting that and went prepared to pay. They are accommodating and we took duty free with us. We also went to get soft drinks and snacks in the local supermarket on the mainland which is cheaper than hotel prices. We then used the fridge in the room to keep them cool. Excursions - we had decided pre-arrival what trips we wanted to do and were not disappointed. We swam with sharks, rays and fish, a 4x4 tour and a Aqua bike trip which all proved to be amazing in their own way. Other trips are available so plan before you leave. Another must for us was a meal at the famous â€˜bloody Mary's â€˜ restaurant. People it's not a la carte, it's got sand on the floor, the seats get uncomfortable after an hour and to flush the toilet ( in the men's room) you have to pull on a large wooden phallic shaped handle!! It's about the atmosphere and the food. Well cooked local produce and to be honest, in relation to FP food prices it was quite reasonableâ€¦ even locals eat and drink there. Staff - what can we sayâ€¦ they were always courteous, smiling, always said hello and were at hand whenever you needed them without being in your face. Some staff struggled with English which is being rectified with some English teachers at the hotel when we were there helping staff with the language issue. Even if they did not understand they went and got a staff member who could assist so we were never left high and dry at any point. There were certain staff members who we regularly had contact with in restaurants and bars who always addressed us by our names which just made that personal touch even more special for us. The concierge team were brilliant, and without taking anything away from the rest, Sophie the chief concierge was amazingâ€¦ we had contact with her pre -arrival to help plan our wedding and she did everything in her power to help us have an amazing wedding day. (Even I'm sure praying to the sun god to give us such great weather for the weddingâ€¦ ironically 10 mins after being back in our room after the ceremony it began to rain so she did so well!!) Thanks also goes to Stephane (manager) who was always on hand and assisted us both before arriving and during our stay. The whole experience from arrival to leaving seemed so personal. E.g. When leaving it was not just one member of staff who was at the dock but several team managers as well as Stephane (GM) . It made us feel as so special. Only issues we found was the internet connection was not available in some areas of the hotel but the rooms had good receptionâ€¦ (it was mainly used for internet music for us) and the tv channels were mainly in French. So did we have a good wedding / holiday experience? We always say that we would never go back to a resort twice but we can honestly say we would come back here in a heartbeatâ€¦. Whyâ€¦. It's the Intercontinental resort, it's in Bora Bora!! It's the best holiday we have both been on thanks to the staff, facilities and of course the weather!! Thank you for taking your time to read this rather long review and we strongly recommend that if you want to experience paradise â€¦. Look no further
"The best thing about Bora Bora?"
My wife's dream has always been to stay in an over-water bungalow at Bora Bora, and after using TripAdvisor I chose the Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa as the place to help my wife's dreams come true. I specifically asked for Bungalow 209 after reading that it had arguably the best views and location (you can see nothing but water and the rest of the world from your own bed, and watch the sun set next to Mt Otemanu from your own pool). The room and view was everything we hoped for and more, and I can say that if we are lucky enough to come back we will ask for exactly the same room again. The facilities were everything you could expect from a Luxury Resort. We dined at each restaurant available, drank at all the bars and enjoyed every special night/function that was put on from the Polynesian Dancing, the to beachside BBQ. We did take advantage of the breakfast/dinner half board and would strongly recommend it as we rarely ate lunch. Even with the meal plan we could eat anywhere and anything we wanted and only had to pay a little extra if we did our own thing. I have read other reviews with people being a little unhappy with the pricing and I really do disagree. If you are after cheap or discounted food or drink then you probably should not go to Bora Bora. Although nothing was cheap we found everything to be good value and very reasonable and even more so at the Happy Hours! There were only two things better than the location/food and accommodation. Firstly, we renewed our Marriage Vows at the lagoon Chapel. Everything was organized by our wonderful host Vicky and everything was just perfect. From being picked up in a canoe, to the ceremony itself and even the photographer. Our "Priest" was just perfect. He was warm and friendly, but very professional and there was no doubt as to his authority and sincerity. It was perfect! And the other thing better than the perfect location and perfect accommodation? The people! The staff are what made our visit truly exceptional. EVERYONE was so warm and friendly and it was obvious that it was genuine friendliness and not people just doing their job. Some of the real standouts were Vicky who looked after our wedding vow ceremony and was incredible in every way, every day. Heitiare, who greeted us personally, by name from our second day on and we truly felt appreciated and welcome. We still don't know how she remembered us among so many guests but we sure felt special. Another lady who helped us begin every day was Magnolia who greeted us with a big smile and a bigger "Ia Ora na" (pronounced yo-rah-nah) as she cooked us breakfast. Special mentions must also go to Sam our canoeist, Julien the bar manager and Antoine the wine waiter. Every single member of staff we met over the week helped us enjoy our stay even more. The only sad part about the whole trip was saying goodbye to everyone. In summary, I agree with many other TripAdvisor reviewers. The Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso is arguably the best place to stay at Bora Bora. We did check out the other resorts and locations while at Bora Bora (on a jetski!) and would not go anywhere else. This resort is not cheap (but wasn't over priced either), but what price do you put on making your dreams come true? To everyone at Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort& Thalasso Spa we say ... Thank you. Mauruâ€™ uru. Merci Beaucoup. We will be back!
We spent 6 days at the IC Thalasso and it exceeding our expectations in every way! Upon arrival, we were greeted at the airport and transported to the hotel by boat. Check in was easy, staff took car of checking us in while we had a drink and took on the views. We stayed in the premium pool OWB, which was ready immediately so we got to enjoy our room right away. The room was incredible! Clean and very spacious. A living room for lounging, separate bedroom overlooking the pool and lagoon, then a bathroom. Loved the soaking tub and huge picture window. Pool at our room was fabulous. Water was beautiful and maintained at least twice during our stay. Food was very good in the Reef and Sands restaurants, we did not check out Le Corail. Breakfast buffet was delicious and we enjoyed Polynesian show on Wednesday for dinner. We went to the Bubbles Lounge every night for happy hour to take advantage of the half price drinks. They had live music on some nights and a pool table. Yes, food and drinks are expensive but you have to consider that when you budget. It is like this at all of the resorts. On our last day we went to the spa. Best decision ever! We didn't leave for the airport until 5:15pm which was well after checkout so we had the chance to use the spa for the day. The massage was phenomenal and the facilities were fabulous. We took advantage of the salt water jacuzzis, tea lounge, relaxation room and steam room. This was a fantastic way to relax before our long flight! They also have showers and amenities to get ready so we had no need to use the day room before departure. The view of Mt. Otemanu just breathtaking! No other resort has a view like the IC Thalasso! We truly had an amazing trip and would absolutely return in the future!
Really couldnâ€™t be happier with the Intercontinental so far. Excellent service and the bungalow location and room itself is very lovely. Nice option for pillow menu, and Tahitian flowers refreshed in room and all over the resort. Breakfast buffet at the Reef restaurant is also very good, selection adequate as well. Pearl shop on property has interesting jewelry designs and good prices you wonâ€™t find on mainland in Vaitape. Super relaxing trip!
