InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa

  • The InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa provides a warm and welcome respite after the 8-hour flight from North America
  • It is the top resort on the island and conveniently located near the airport and downtown Papeete
  • The InterContinental is Tahiti's premier full-scale resort with two infinity pools, swim-up bar, natural lagoonarium, Algotherm Deep Nature spa, and several dining options including the island's top restaurant and the romantic overwater Le Lotus Restaurant

With stunning views toward the ethereal island of Moorea, the vibrant InterContinental Resort is our top pick for a stay on the island of Tahiti. Warm Polynesian décor and a variety of accommodation choices provide the perfect backdrop for the start of your adventure in French Polynesia.

The resort is conveniently located 5 minutes from Faa’a International Airport and 10 minutes from downtown Papeete. This means easy access to local dining, museums, shopping, and much more.

The hotel recently finished an extensive renovation project and is proud to offer brand new garden, lagoon and panoramic view rooms. They also feature a selection of overwater bungalows ranging from authentic and charming with woven panadus walls, all the way to contemporary and chic with sleek modern lines.

Bask in the incredible views of majestic Moorea in the distance while you sip cocktails in their swim-up bar at one of two resort infinity pools. Or soak up the history of Tahiti while enjoying the best Polynesian dance and fire shows.

If you’re stopping over for a few hours on your way home, be sure to enjoy a spectacular treatment from their Deep Ocean spa – there is nothing quite like a massage just before a flight to help you relax.

We really enjoyed arriving in Tahiti and having everything taken care of. I always wanted to arrive at the airport and have someone holding a sign with my name on it. 😁 Also wanted to share with you there were other people using travel agents and they Did Not get the treatment we got. With that being said Thank you and your company for taking such good care of us.

I wanted to say thanks for helping us set up an amazing trip. We are home safe & sound! Everything was wonderful-- I am so happy you recommended the Shark & Ray tour on Bora Bora-- it was by far our favorite thing that we did! We ended up relaxing on Taha'a as it was the most perfect place to unwind and get massages. All of the hotels were awesome-- Le Taha'a Resort and The Conrad were our favorites! We absolutely loved our beach bungalow (it was huge!!)
