My wife & I could not have wished for a more luxurious & glorious setting for our honeymoon! We were warmly welcomed as an IHG Ambassador member. We were given an in depth tour of the resort & shown to our accommodation, which was ready for us early! This was a nice surprise & was a sign for things to come! We stayed in the OWB with Otemanu view & it was perfect! It looked directly at the mountain (room 123). I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect view. The OWBs are spacious, luxurious & very authentic. The service we received from all staff, particularly at the on site restaurants, was spectacular! At breakfast quite a few staff members even remembered our names! A special mention to the Restaurant General Manager whom warmly greeted us every morning! We were always made to feel very welcome by everyone at the resort. I highly recommend Le Corail restaurant. The views, in our opinion, are the best in any resort on Bora Bora! Absolutely spectacular! The views from the infinity pool, the sea swing (loved this touched) & the sunset terrace were all breathtaking. We also really enjoyed exploring the coral & aquatic life at the resort. There are lots of activities to do including paddle boarding, kayaking and jet skiing (which was throughly exhilarating!) We highly recommend it! A dream honeymoon & a true paradise on Earth! We hope to visit again someday.

Hotel's Favorite
Our stay for our ten year anniversary was unbelievable at IHC Bora Bora. When we arrived on the property, we were greeted by the friendly and accommodating staff and management. Walking into our over water bungalow was absolutely one of the best experiences I have ever had. The property is amazing. Modern and updated everything. The villas are luxury and made us feel as though we were staying in a luxury apartment over the water and the private plunge pool is a must! Our favorite part of the entire stay was the private dinner that the hotel put on for us in the lagoon. Hands down, I think this experience is a must for anyone who is staying here. There are plenty of amenities on property (non motorized activities, spa, gym, pool) and there is no reason to leave the property. The restaurants and dining experiences were great as well. Lastly, I have to sing the praises of management for making our stay absolutely fantastic. Specifically Sergey was very helpful and just amazing at making sure we had a great time. A very sincere thank you to Sergey and all staff at IHC Bora Bora from us. We will be back!!!

Definitely a must stay resort! When I’m bora bora!! The staff are amazing, attentive and very friendly. Came here for my 40th birthday and I would come back here again. I stayed at a over water villa with a pool which is located on the other side with no Mountain View but you still get an amazing sunrise and sunset view of the South Pacific Ocean. They do house cleaning 2x a day. They have daily activities at the pool. The resort bathroom is super clean. I recommend getting a massage at the deep ocean spa it’s an experience. I did the Polynesian Romance package!

We just returned from 6 days at the IC Thalasso, and it was hands down the most incredible experience we have ever had! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our every need was graciously taken care of by the wonderful Laura. She helped organize all of our adventures - parasailing, snorkeling, swimming with sharks, helicopter tour, cultural night, dinner on the main island...she made it so seamless and easy for us to enjoy all that this wonderful island has to offer! We stayed in the Teremoana villa with our two kids, 11 and 14. If you are considering the villa, do it!!!! It is worth the splurge! We have never experienced a more beautiful space, so much room, high ceilings, every amenity you could dream of. Waking up to Mt. Otemanu in full view is beyond breathtaking. In addition to Laura, we found the entire staff at the IC Thalasso to be equally helpful and friendly, greeting us by name at every interaction. We could not believe the level of personal service at such a large hotel. We felt like we were at a boutique hotel and it never felt crowded, even though it was at full capacity. Never an issue finding chairs at the pool, space at their many spots along the water, or at the lagoon. We all had a blast spending time at the resort in addition to our outings off property. We spent time paddle boarding, kyaking, playing pool, and our favorite was snorkeling in the lagoon. For anyone interested in scuba diving, we found it very handy that Top Dive is located on the property. My husband and kids absolutely loved their dives - they went to four different dive spots over two days. We cannot say enough good things about this amazing resort and the people who work there, especially Laura! We looked at other high end resorts for our trip, and we are so glad we chose IC Thalasso for the location, service, amenities, and overall value for what you get. We will most definitely be back! Thank you!!!!

The Intercontinental Thalasso Bora Bora is the most amazing place we have visited. You can't believe how beautiful the views are. The customer service is beyond exceptional. Everyone at the Intercontinental Thalasso were very kind and really went out of their way to care of our family. We stayed in the Teremoana Overwater Villa which has an unobstructed view of Mt Otemanu. The Villa is so luxurious and amazing. We are already planning on going back. A special Thank you to Laura at the IC for her attention to the details and making our stay wonderful. We booked our vacation with Carl Henderson, the best Tahiti vacation specialist. We have booked several Tahiti vacations with him because he know the islands and the people. Always book with tahitibycarl.com

Now this is what I call a massage! From the facilities to the staff- this place is full of amazing amenities and awesome hospitality. We were in a group vacation and all had the experience. Me and my friend had the over water bungalow massage and experience and it was divine. The room was serene, smelled really nice, low music, and just peaceful. Eline was my massage person and you can tell she really enjoys her job. She took her time with my massage (and sunburns as well), made sure the pressure was great, and honestly I didn’t have to tell her anything because she just gets it! I loved watching the fish underneath while getting my massage. That was a treat. I enjoyed the fresh grapefruit juice afterwards and the other amenities were amazing as well. Loved the Secret Lock Garden! Bring a lock with you!! Definitely a must do while visiting out there!!! And I can’t forget about the hostess with the mostest- JOYCE!! She was absolutely wonderful.

It is the only place in the world to use the benefits of water drawn from more than 900 m deep in the Pacific Ocean, to provide an unrivalled intensity of well-being. We cannot disagree with the fact that spa therapists are really gifted in Deep Ocean Spa, I will of course extend your warm words to Joyce and Eline.

The staff was amazing, especially Vanessa, Katia, Toerau, and Christopher. Great views of Mount Otemanu. The overwater bungalows are very modern and large, with seperate living room. Lots of closet space as well. Lots of activities that can be arranged at the hotel. The property is very clean and well kept. The food was overall very good with a awesome breakfast buffet. The only negative is the price of the boat transfer from airport to resort and from resort to the main island, but expected with the high cost of fuel. I will be back for sure!

I just can’t say enough good things about this resort. The bungalows are wonderful, the views are amazing, the resort is clean, the buffets are so yummy but the staff, the staff absolutely made it a trip to remember. They were all so friendly and helpful. The managers of the restaurant were fantastic. To have to remember all of the peoples names that come here based on a photograph…I don’t know how they do it but it really does make you feel special. Thank you for making our 20th anniversary absolutely amazing.

This was our third visit to this resort in the last 10 years, and we will be coming back to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We absolutely love this resort. It is almost a religious experience for us when we are on property. (We have to travel a very long way to get there, and it is worth it.) The view of the iconic Mr. Otemanu is hypnotically beautiful. The rooms, the grounds, the restaurants, and the staff are all 5+ stars. We booked a ocean/lagoon view villa with private plunge pool towards the end of the "trident", and it was spectacular. My wife cries with happiness when we arrive, and cries again with sadness when we depart. We booked a jet ski excursion which was incredible - a complete tour around the inside of the island, with stops for photos. The "Snorkel Safari" excursions was also spectacular.
