My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a package deal. We definitely made the right choice. The resort is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. It seems like the remodelling that others have complained about was well and truly over by the time we got there.

The over water villas were to die for. We stayed in a 'diamond' villa and had incredible views. The room was luxurious, spacious and very clean.

The staff were super friendly and helpful, even when language was a barrier. The food was pricey- then again everything in Tahiti is expensive and we preferred the Sands restaurant over the Reef for both better value and variety. Travelling to the main island is a breeze, though getting back in the evening does come at an extra cost.

The spa is one of the best I have ever been to- a perfect way to unwind and really enjoy your time there.

Would we go back? In a heartbeat!

My wife and I traveled to Tahiti and Bora Bora to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and 2nd honeymoon. We chose the Intercontinental Thalasso in Bora Bora. This hotel more than exceeded our expectations. Everything was amazing. The water taxi transfer to the hotel went smoothly, we were greeted upon arrival and given lei's, then our bags were loaded and off we went. The check in process was easy and then we were taken to our room. We had an amazing OTW bungalow with a spectacular view of Mt. Otemanu!! The staff at the hotel could not do enough for us. The guys at the pool are the best - special shout out to Mario, Fred and Simon.
They made the trip very special. They made hats, purses, headbands etc out of palm leaves, and made sure our time at the pool was enjoyable. Also, Vai and Heimana at the poolside bar were very warm and welcoming. Mauruuru to all of them!! Needless to say, we can't wait to go back. I would recommend this resort to anyone who is lucky enough to travel to Bora Bora.

My husband and I traveled here for our honeymoon in May 2011, and I'd give anything to go back! (If you are traveling to BB, seriously, stay forever, if you can.)

The rooms, the water, the food, everything was amazing. I enjoyed a lunch of brie with crostini and salad everyday, and of course, a cold Hinano. The snorkeling in the little lagoon is also fabulous. (Say hello to the giant puffer from me!) We also enjoyed taking the boat over the the Moana for dinner one night. While the resort pales in comparison to the Thalasso, it's still fun to take the little boat my moonlight. We did do dinner one night at the St. Regis as well, but I wouldn't recommend. If you're a relatively chill person, you'll likely find the SR a bit stuffy.

It's been 2 years since we've been in Bora Bora, but I hope to be back soon. Enjoy every second of your trip to this awesome resort. It's not cheap to go back, but worth every penny!

This amazing stay began with the water taxi ride from the airport to the Intercontinental Thalasso- Spa. What an amazing view. Once you arrive at the dock it's like you're in a movie. You are met by reps of the hotel and whisked away to take a tour of the resort. A quick check-in with a welcome drink and you are brought to your room. The over water bungalow absolutely exceeded our expectations. Well appointed, wonderful layout, and an awesome deck!!! We were the 2nd hut from the end of the dock which meant a long walk to reception, dining, or the dock to get the water taxi to the main island but it was worth it. (also an easy drop off spot when you are coming back from excursions).

The service at the resort is impeccable. Everyone remembers you/knows your name and everyone is so friendly and happy! The concierge assisted us with all of our needs - booking private excursions, dinner reservations, transportation, etc. Very accommodating. They have a water taxi available for free during the day and you can purchase a ticket for a shuttle bus to town for shopping. There is a charge for the water taxi in the evening. We left the resort for dinner twice - Bloody Mary & Villa Mahana (AMAZING). Very convenient having the water taxi available even if you just want to check out the other Intercontinental.

Food at the resort was good as well. We ate breakfast there daily and it was great. The buffet had lots of different choices (American, Japanese, Tahitian, etc). Both nights we had dinner at the resort were buffet nights (Japanese Theme & Polynesian Theme). Excellent meals, lots of choices, and everything was great!

I can't say enough about this place. We can't wait to go back!

We spent 5 nights there for honeymoon in Jun 2013.

we called before we arrived and told the Thalasso which villa I was interested. and we got the one we wanted to stay in! we didn't go thru any agent. we booked directly with the hotel.

of course, a warm welcome was received. the first night when we came back from dinner, a champagne was left in the room with fresh flowers. and a warm letter from concierge which reminded us of the activities we booked the next day was left on the bed.

we had tours almost every morning. the staff was waiting for clients at the dock to see what is needed. for example, we didn't bring fins for one tour, she drove to get them for us within 5 min.

the buffet at the "Reef" was highly recommended! a great variety of food and very tasty!

the last day we ordered the canoe breakfast. the experience was very beautiful, also very pricy. two guys sent you breakfast in a canoe. then one guy came up to set up table on our sundeck, we were offered a ride for about 5 min in the canoe. when we came back, the table with breakfast and fresh flowers was already set up. the breakfast was about USD 220 which was regular cereal and pancake at your choice. still it was unforgettable!

Room Tip: download the map of the hotel rooms before the trip and call/ email the hotel of the rooms you are interested. different Diamonds villa has different views.
