“Great choice on Bora Bora..highly recommend!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Fantastic experience at the Le Moana Intercontinental in Bora Bora. Overwater bungalow was fantastic. Location is A_+++. Considering it is one (of the only major) hotel on the mainland, the convenience was great. Being able to walk down the road to a few stores and restaurants was great, considering those staying at most of the other hotels have to take a boat to do anything on the mainland.

Hotel staff was very friendly and did a great job cleaning the bungalow and doing the nightly turn down service. The concierge was very helpful booking excursions. No complaints there.

The restaurant was OK. The overall level of service at restaurants throughout Bora Bora (and elsewhere in Tahiti for that matter) was rather poor, and the food was expensive and nothing special. Guess that's just the way it is.

I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to BB. The location is fantastic and it has the best, biggest beach!

Room Tip: Overwater bungalows can be a LONG walk out. Beach bungalows are much closer to the main hotel and a...

My new wife and I were met with so much attention our entire stay. From warm smiles to personal visits from all the staff. Special seating for the wonderful dinner show. A must for romantic get aways.

Room Tip: if you can afford it a bungalow over the water is a must for romantic stay.

I am pleased to relate our recent stay at the Intercontinental Le Moana on Bora Bora in Tahiti.

Over the last 30 years or so my wife and I have travelled to many fascinating locations around the world to partake in local cultures, the sights and wherever we could - stay in comfortable accommodation at interesting places that reflect the local atmosphere. This year was special.. French Polynesia ..Tahiti.

Our choice for Tahiti was to spend a most of our holiday on Bora Bora and at the Intercontinental Le Moana at Matira Beach was our final choice; simply because of its traditional Polynesian style and the choices in lodging.

The draw card for us was primarily the location at Matira Point (on the island proper adjacent to next to the best beach in the world) the traditional atmosphere (not all concrete and glass) and the food (5 stars is all I need say).

The Intercontinental has a counter at the Bora Bora Airport. Staff coordinate and assist you with your luggage and boat transfer to the hotel. Le Moana additionally have scheduled boat transfers their sister hotel the ICH Thalasso Spa with its relaxation treatments.

All aspects of transfer, check-in and guidance were well managed. We spent 5 nights at the beach Bure and 2 nights in the overwater. This exposure gave us a unique experience at the resort.

Le Moana - The Resort

A traditional hotel in an absolutely wonderful setting. Where does one begin to describe a heightened state of comfort and enjoyment ....maybe the island and beautiful water at Matira Point...... blue and very clear water right at your bungalow or surrounding the overwater room.

Rooms were well sized and comfortable which contributed to the tropical feeling.
The amenities were excellent and the lodgings had both air-conditioning and ceiling fan. Rooms were well serviced and always offered pleasant views of the the surrounding landscape and mount Otemanu from most private decks.

I've already mentioned the food in the restaurant; some of the best and well balance meal choices we have encountered. Especially in such a remote location. Le Moana provided a well balanced traditional/American style breakfast with snacks and lunch available throughout the day.

The staff were always considerate and courteous. The manager Laurence Levy and her staff were committed to making anyones stay a pleasant experience. Judging by the amount of new arrivals from all over the world --during our stay --- it's certainly a full time commitment.

We stayed there for 8 days and experienced every aspect of a most wonderful location, hotel service and stunning views......A return is inevitable !

Room Tip: All rooms are great. All have unique views of the island, reef and lagoon.

My husband and I stayed here for the second part of our honeymoon in July 2012 (after coming from Moorea). My main complaints with Bora Bora have nothing to do with the hotel, which was lovely.
Similar to the I/C on Moorea, this property was beautifully designed, had excellent service, and a great breakfast.
Our bungalow was one of the furthest out on the property (there were only two further). And the views were spectacular!! (see photos). The walk really wasn't all that horrible, and actually helps digest all the heavy food!
For dinner, the concierge was very helpful with showing us menus, making reservations, and organizing free pick up and drop off to and from the restaurants.
We took the free boat shuttle over to the other I/C property on Bora Bora (the Thalasso) to use the spa. We did not get a chance to see the other rooms, but the rest of the property was nice (not sure it would be worth the price to stay there, though).
The spa was great - the services, the set up, the ability to use the facilities for the remainder of the day. Really worth it.
The "beach" at the I/C Le Moana wasn't anything spectacular (very small, not a lot of pool/beach furniture), Moorea was much better, but it was also very rainy/windy for the majority of our time on Bora Bora.

We spent 10 days at this lovely resort. We could not fault the service we received from management and all the staff. The position is fantastic. If it was windy you only need to walk to the other side of the resort to the beautiful public beach. Or go to the sister resort, (15 minute boat ride) to get out of the wind. The lagoon water was so warm but I would suggest you wear reef shoes when swimming as there are bits of coral which are quite sharp. We stayed in a beach junior suit which is located right on the beach. They were beautifully appointed with two TVs a seperate lounge, king size bed and double sinks in the bathroom as well as a bath and seperate shower. We had two sun lounges on the deck plus table and chairs as well as 3 lounges on the beach which can be situated under palm trees for shade. There are 5 restaurants, a supermarket and a couple of shops only 10 minutes walk away. As there are no street lights a torch would have been handy. TV is mainly French speaking but there were free DVDs available. We would like to thank all staff members as we throughly enjoyed Bora Bora and very glad we chose this resort.

I'm really pleased with the location of this hotel mainly because it was on the main island vs the Motu. This allowed us to walk around the island and leave our resort at our leisure instead of being at the mercy of a water taxi schedule if you stay at a resort on the Motu.

The resort is small and easy to maneuver around and I loved that the kayaks and paddle boards were free of charge here and at the sister property.

We had the meal plan that included breakfast and at times it was confusing because you have to sign out when you finish your breakfast and sometimes there would be a charge and other times the balance would be 0. Just tell the person that you are on a meal plan and they won't charge you. We had to do the same when we had breakfast the sister property.

Dining tips - If you want to dine outside of the resort, the restaurants will send a complimentary taxi for you (round-trip). You can ask the front desk to call the restaurant for a pick-up time. Also, I found the prices of the food at the resort were competitive with the cost of dining at local restaurants. Mai Kai was one of our favorite places we dined - they are located just past Viatape.

Lastly, it was very windy (hard to read a magazine while laying out kind of windy) at this resort and the sister property was far less windy. We did find that it was less windy in the morning to early afternoon and that the wind really helped keep the temperature comfortable. We were in OWB #5 and our deck was shielded from the wind.

Room Tip: Request an OWB with a deck that get's full if you plan to sun yourself on your deck. Otherwise...

you could not expect anything less, considering the price of the stay. Everything was perfect: from a service personnel. Small faults is negligible, did not invalidate the show that nature provides in those latitudes.
The accommodation in bungalows overwater is undoubtedly to be preferred. Its substantial premium, will make you dream with open eyes, when you wake up in the morning surrounded by the sea from the bed and admire the multicolored fish. Though a very expensive holiday, I assure you it's worth it
