We stayed at the Intercontinental and fought for reservations at the Lotus. The food was excellent - make sure you ask for a table on the dock side - you'll be perched out over the water with the fish swimming underneath and a warm breeze...More

Here's the thing. The service level was a disappointment and does not match the standard set by the kitchen or the number on the check. Dedicate someone to Host and not split time between front of house and interacting tableside with dining guests. It's that...More

Four of us had the 3-course dinners and the ambiance sitting in a bungalow over the water was wonderful. Scallops sashimi and the shrimp ravioli were standout dishes we highly recommend. Duck and veal were delicious. We had the local dessert which we good but...More

Excellent food. Perfect portion. Refined dining with a very romantic view of sunset on Moorea island. Professional service. Amazing cocktails. Perfect for families or couples.

Absolutely stunning views, ambiance. Relaxing, you feel like you are a world away. You are. Friendly staff, although the service was a bit slow at times. The best restaurant at the Intercontinental. The Grilled Scallops were out of this world.

If you like asian food, you will not be disappointed. The service is simple and the staff is nice. The hotel is not bad and all the staff were nice to us especially Sarah at the reception.

Our dinner at Le Lotus was not romantic or memorable. Food was fine, but the service wasn’t polished for a restaurant of that price point and the tables are too close together. Not worth it. Giving it a "poor" rating because disappointment came at a...More

Type in intercontinental papeete in your search engine, then send an email to the hotel through their contact listings on their website. We were there almost a year ago now, so prices and menu would have changed. However I... More

The Lotus restaurant would be a good choice for a party of 12. Contact the Intercontinental directly for your reservation.
