INTERCONTINENTAL MOOREA RESORT & SPA
Our Resort Report

Our Thoughts on the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa.
This superb resort is located on the far end of Moorea (when distance is measured from the airport or ferry terminal) so just transferring to the resort on arrival in Moorea you start to get an idea of what this island has to offer.  We would call this a mid-sized resort from the point that it has only 144 rooms and bungalows, but it certainly has all the big resort facilities. The main part of the resort is located on the “mainland” and then there are overwater bungalows which are located on a series of small lagoon islands and accessed by boardwalk bridges some of which enclose the dolphin pool. The resort faces out to the open sea but there is an off-shore reef a short way out which provides shelter from the ocean waves and which attracts an enormous number of little fish that constantly surround the overwater bungalows.

The InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa has 2 excellent restaurants and snack food is available from the swim-up pool bar. There is a convenience store just across the road from the resort which provides the option of takeaway food such as ice cream, cheese and French bread and there are several good local restaurants nearby.  Many of the restaurants on Moorea provide a pick-up/drop-off service if you decide to try an alternative to taking all your meals at the resort. 

However, The Resort does have exceptionally good dining facilities and dining options for guests.  Their Fare Hana Restaurant offers indoor/outdoor dining options for lunch and dinner every day.  We are always impressed with the operation of the other main dining venue The Fare Nui which is open each day for breakfast and on alternate days for a-la-carte dining.  Every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday night there is a Theme Dinner on the beach and these are all really special occasions. Monday is Polynesian Night, Wednesday is BBQ Buffet Night and Saturday is “Round-The-World” Buffet Night.  These events are held in Fare Nui on the rare occasion the weather doesn’t cooperate.

As you move backwards and forwards between the land and the Overwater Bungalows you pass the Dolphin Centre which another great facility at InterContinental Moorea where small numbers of guests at a time can enter the water and interact with the dolphins living there.  The resort also has a rehabilitation centre for sea turtles which provides assistance to turtles, nursing them back to health and their ultimate return to the wild.

The InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa delivers a very well-rounded and thoroughly enjoyable resort experience on Moorea.

What InterContinental Morea Resort & Spa Say About Themselves:

Your Accommodation Options
There is a wide variety of accommodation options available and all deliver top quality InterContinental standards and facilities.  Around a third of the accommodation is in 2 blocks of hotel rooms or “Lanai Rooms”.  These 2 storey blocks are curved buildings which, from above, resemble back-to-back bananas!  Each one follows the curve of the beach; one faces over the new (also curved) horizon pools towards the lagoon and the other block faces out over a beautifully kept lawn towards the inner lagoon and the overwater bungalows.  The remaining two thirds of the accommodation types on offer are Junior Suite Bungalows; so-called due to their defined sleeping and living areas and exceptional flow-through to large outdoor-living decks. The Garden Pool Junior Suite Bungalows scattered throughout the gardens each feature a private, horizon plunge pool, the Beach Junior Suite Bungalows are virtually right on the beach front and the superb Overwater Junior Suite Bungalows (most with direct access from a tiny close-in lagoon motu) are all handy to the main complex. All accommodation types are air-conditioned and feature bathrooms with both a bathtub and a separate walk-in shower.

Overwater Bungalow Renovation
On 30 August 2018, the resort advised:
“We wish to inform you that in 2019, the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa will launch an ambitious renovation program to its Overwater Bungalows.

This renovation will start on January 2nd, 2019 and will be completed by December 20, 2019. We will be rebuilding the concrete foundation of all bungalows as well as undertaking a complete interior renovation.
The renovation will be in two phases:
Phase 1: from January 2 to August 31 
Phase 2: from September 1st to December 20

Our Overwater Bungalow inventory will not be completely closed as Zone 2 will be opened from January 2 to August 31 and Zone 1 from September 1st to December 12.
Note re Zones:
The Overwater Bungalows at InterContinental Moorea are in 2 zones.  Zone 1 runs off the central access pier to the left and zone 2 runs off the central access pier to the right. Each zone is quite separate from the other.
Update as at 08 February 2019
The resort advises that, a month after the renovation program commenced, the remaining renovation program has virtually no impact on guest enjoyment of the resort.
