Faa'a, Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia

Our thoughts on InterContinental Tahiti Resort
Flying in you will arrive at Faa'a International Airport and the InterContinental Tahiti Resort is only 2 minutes away from the airport and 15 minutes from Papeete city centre. Flights tend to arrive and depart Tahiti late at night, so a full resort hotel so close to the airport is a good choice especially if you are only spending a day or two stop-over en route to or from Tahiti's other wonderful islands.

The hotel provides a full range of resort activities and facilities and a wide variety of room types. Feed and watch the marine life in the Lagoonarium, organise Scuba diving, play tennis, enjoy the Polynesian dance shows and the choice of restaurants, take in a Spa session, browse the boutiques, work out in the 24-hour fitness centre, take a bus into Papeete, or simply relax around the pool and sip a cocktail at the swim-up bar.

The whole resort commenced a progressive refurbishment during 2014 which involved a complete upgrading of the lobby and reception area. Once the first stage was completed, the second of the three stages was undertaken (that was in the first half of 2015) and it's all looking superb. The final stage of this refurbishment is to take place in the first half of 2018 and will only involve the 3 remaining accommodation blocks. The newly redeveloped lobby area is a delight as the new design has opened the whole lobby area up to capture the magnificent lagoon, ocean and Moorea views.

Le Lotus Restaurant at the InterContinental Tahiti Resort has a huge reputation in Tahiti.

We have a couple of travel hints for first-time visitors to Tahiti staying at InterContinental Tahiti.  To help you enjoy the InterContinental Tahiti Resort experience, we recommend that you spend a few extra dollars and take a Lagoon View Room or better still, a Panoramic Lagoon Room. From these rooms you wake up on your first morning, draw back the curtains and the view across to Moorea is breathtakingly beautiful. Next, take a "Jet-lag" massage at the Spa and you are set up for a great holiday. On your first evening, make sure to be at the resort for an evening cocktail while you enjoy the marvellous sunset display over Moorea. If your schedule allows you to be at the InterContinental Tahiti on a Sunday, make absolutely sure you don’t miss the fantastic Tahitian Sunday Brunch.

Your Accommodation Options
There are 253 accommodation units on offer. They range from Standard Rooms in typical hotel blocks to over-water bungalows and suites. All rooms have been progressively refreshed or renovated during 2014 and 2015 and this renovation is now complete.

The resort has a unique layout. Out front of the central block with its restaurants etc there is an enclosed beach and pool that joins up with 2 little islands (motus) just metres off the beach and in this area, there are 16 bungalows known as “Motu Overwater Bungalows” and 1 large Motu Overwater Villa, all of which are built out over the water off the lagoon side of the motu islands. This motu area also provides private beaches and lawns and forms one side of the large, sheltered lagoon pool. Framing the resort from the road, the three storey hotel blocks are scattered throughout the grounds, with rooms offering garden views or lagoon views. On the furthest point of the Resort, which is known as “The Lotus Area”, there are 14 “Lagoon Bungalows” built above and totally surrounded by the lagoon. Lagoon Overwater Bungalows are accessed by boardwalks out over the lagoon.
