Over Intercontinental Resort Tahiti
Op Tahiti, het eiland dat ook wel de 'Parel van de Pacific' wordt genoemd, vindt u dit hotel met een vriendelijke uitstraling aan een lagune. Het grote zwembad hier zal u goed bevallen. De ruime kamers zijn gezellig ingericht. En is uw budget wat ruimer, dan zijn de Overwater Bungalows een aanrader. U drinkt een cocktail op uw veranda en wordt het te warm? Dan plonst u zo de lagune in! Het bergachtige Tahiti met het groene hart is ideaal voor een uitstapje; vanaf Mount Marau heeft u een magnifiek uitzicht over Punaruu Valley. De mooiste stranden vindt u op het eiland Bora Bora, dus wanneer u Tahiti combineert met Bora Bora, is dit een Perfect Match.

"Convenient to the Airport AND nice."
The flight from Sydney was fairly long and all we wanted was to get to bed. Imagine our surprise when we arrived and found a beautiful property with swimming pool, gardens and beautiful over the water bungalows. It was hard to get to sleep. On our way back to the states we stayed an additional night in a garden view room. It was probably nicer than the bungalow but that was offset by not being over water. Both were nice.
"First night in paradise"
After taking a red eye flight from the States, we landed bleary eyed in Papeete and came straight to the hotel. The garden room was spacious, super clean, and had a beautiful view of the ocean. It's a habit when staying in hotels for me to use the dead bolt feature and when we were on the patio and closed the sliding door until it locked, then we were locked out! We had a house keeper come help us and it was solved but heads up, the patio doors, when you close them too close together, will lock you out of your room. The grounds are beautiful, the staff was friendly, and it was a great place to start our Tahitian vacation from.
"An expensive indulgence"
This is a sprawling resort of pools, manicured tropical gardens, bars and restaurants, and helpful staff. Conveniently located about 10 minutes from the airport, and 20 mins from the port, its popular with cruise ship embarkation/disembarkation passengers. First impressions are important, and check-in was quick, easy and surprisingly informative. It was a hot afternoon, and I wanted the air conditioning of my room asap! The rooms are nothing special - we had a lagoon view on the third (and highest floor) which had a good view. The bathroom had been renovated in the recent past - no bath, but it did have a large, tiled, walk-in shower. The rooms are on the small side. The balconies are of a standard, smallish size. Breakfast was included - a must at the prices they charge. French Polynesia is EXPENSIVE - everywhere. Whatever number you can think of, double it, and then double it again. I was warned about the price of food and drink by friends who had visited previously, but nothing prepares you for the shock! Breakfast was extensive, and as it was included in our rate, we made this the main meal of the day. We went diving during the day, and spent the evenings from sundown at the Tiki Bar. Happy Hour drinks at reduced prices is a popular draw-card. Avoid the main restaurant - the service seemed slow and the food, surprisingly, not at the high level I expected. We ate finger food at the bar most nights. One night we ate at the over water gourmet restaurant 'Le Lotus' - its very expensive, and OK, but not stunning. Avoid the Lobby Bar - its just a ripoff. We spent one morning shopping in Papeete. Lunch and a few drinks at a sidewalk cafe were a little less expensive than the hotel, but not appreciably so. We enjoyed our stay, the hotel is adequate, the Polynesian people are very friendly and welcoming, but we won't be back - its just too expensive for what it is!
"A blessed day in Paradise"
My son, Julian and I spent the day at the Intercontinental Spa and Resort during a day-long layover. It was a day in Paradise. Once we were at the resort, the magic began. Julian and I began our day by taking a walk around the property. I was delighted to see so many varieties of tropical flowers blooming by the side of the road including hibiscus, bogenvelia and tiare flowers, which are similar to gardenias. We also saw several tall palm trees bearing large fruit, which were most likely coconuts. While walking around the lagoon bordering the South Pacific Ocean, we saw many colorful tropical fish swimming by the purple coral plants. I recognized a few species from my years of trips to aquariums and was overjoyed to see them in their natural habitat. Even at 9 am, the heat was pounding down us, so we sat in the shade for a little while taking in the view of the panorama. After a blissful visit to the spa and a rest in the tea room overlooking the view of Moâ€™orea in the background, it was time for us to eat lunch. One side of the cafe opened on to the pool deck so it gave us the feeling that we were sitting outside. Julian and I both chose the wok option. The chef concocted a delectable entree composed of the ingredients, which we selected ahead of time. During the afternoon, we spent our time by the swimming pools. One of the pools was built adjacent to the salt-water lagoon where the fish lived. Only people with proactive foot gear and snorkels were permitted to swim in the lagoon due to the potential dangers of encountering poisonous fish disguised as rocks. There was a man-made waterfall at one end of the swimming pool. The other swimming pool had a swim-up Tiki bar in the middle of it. The sun began setting over the South Pacific Ocean and the mountains of Moâ€™orea as we finished up our swim and transitioned to dinner, which we ate at the cafe. We chose traditional dishes of raw fish cooked in coconut milk and served in a coconut shell as well as a local swordfish with a Thaitian vanilla sauce. Kiwi sorbet and Tiare flower ice cream adjourned our meal. An excellent jazz band featuring a flute performed while we dined. It was a serene, blessed, beautiful day and I hope to come back soon!
We checked in Jan 28 for 3nights after our Paul Gauguin cruise. I have to say that if you are planning to stay here and do other Islands go here first. After seeing Moorea and Bora Bora the water in Tahiti is a bit of a disappointment. The resort grounds are beautiful the main pool, lagoonarium and lobby are all great. Sadly the Lotus restaurant was being renovated and the Lotus pool was closed due to damage from heavy rains the week before. Obviously that is not in their control but with the Lotus restaurant being closed there is only the one restaurant open. Going anywhere else is a min $25 US cab ride so they really should of offered their paid shuttle service in the evening until the restaurant reopens. The Te Tiera restaurant is ok nothing amazing but the food was good. We had poor service the first night we ate there but it was fine the rest of time. We stayed in a over water bungalow 513. It was nice but again water isn't as nice there and it's quite deep as well. The decor style is a bit dated which I was ok with but the bathroom needs a MAJOR Reno. Not the kind of bathroom you expect for the price of the room. If I had to do it over I would of paid more to stay in one of their other properties on Morea or Bora Bora. I would give it 3.5/5
