One of the smaller and more intimate resorts in Bora Bora, the Intercontinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort offers a truly authentic Polynesian experience. Conveniently located on Matira Point boasting beautiful white-sand beaches, this resort offers great beach and overwater bungalow options. This resort features two white-sand beaches with excellent snorkeling and a fresh-water sand bottom pool. Because this resort is more authentic, the bungalows are not as spacious as some of the other properties in Bora Bora. However, the rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. The resort also located on one of the most beautiful parts of the lagoon in Bora Bora and offers good snorkeling.
