Stayed here for 4 nights after an 11 day Paul Gaugin cruise. Water bungalow amazing, beautiful setting and all the amenities you could hope for in an exotic setting. On the downside very expensive to eat and drink.

We just came back from visiting Bora Bora for our 5 year wedding anniversary. Wow, what can I say. It is heaven on Earth!! We stayed in the overwater sapphire bungalow at the Intercontinental Bora Bora and Thalasso Spa. The bungalow was large and very comfortable. Waking up to the blue lagoon each morning was magical. Staff were very friendly,... More

Three of us stayed here in one of the pontoon-end overwater bungalows in August 2016. The resort is located in Motu Piti Aau, which is itself on the east side of Bora Bora Lagoon. Like most motu resorts in Bora Bora, you can catch a shuttle boat ride directly to the resort from the airport, but the 20 minute boat... More

The resort itself is stunning. The lagoon which this resort sits on is likely one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Service was top notch and the food on property was (surprisingly) good! We stayed in one of their Sapphire Overwater Bungalows which was huge when comparing to other resort's bungalows. I'm so happy we selected this property... More

This is my first review of the IC Thalasso in Bora Bora. I have been very concerned to advertise this hotel, The hotel is now very popular and there is nothing I can do anymore to 'protect' it.

The word paradise comes up a lot in these reviews however its not an exaggeration! My husband and I were at the Thalasso celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The location of the resort i.e., facing Mount Otemanu, the villas, the grounds, and lagoon were all breathtaking. We had an over the water villa (Diamond class) which was just beautiful, the...

After looking around I would say that this is the one of the nicest resorts on the island however with all the French influence you would expect their food to be a little bit better. Staff has been attentive and friendly and it is in the best part of the lagoon.
