Absolutely gorgeous, great service, perfect location. Loved the beach bungalow with direct access to the water. Food was great and enjoyed having a small local market so close to the hotel. The only negative was the shower didn't drain well and the a/c was noisy but they tried to fix both.

Beautiful location

Picture perfect resort!
Polished and pristine, stunning villa with priceless views everywhere......we were there for the scenery and privacy, not the cuisine.

The Sands restaurant staff were absolutely faultless and a very big thank you to Ralph....the star of the resort!
Just as we imagined Bora Bora is beautiful!

Pure Bliss

We recently stayed 5 nights in a Diamond Otemanu bungalow. From the minute we were welcomed to the resort by the gentleman with the conch shell until the time we left to the same sound, we found pure bliss and relaxation at the IC Thalasso. Check in is at 3:00 pm, so even if you arrive earlier, you will not be given access to your room. There are changing areas - pack a swim suit and sunscreen in your carry on so you can enjoy the beautiful infinity pool with the view of the mountain.

The bungalow we were given was room 219 and the view from here was like something out of a postcard. We spent many quiet hours on the deck reading, watching the stars come out at night or swimming in the lagoon. The bungalow is very well appointed and much larger than our bungalow on Moorea. Lovely furnishings, comfortable bed and a pillow menu if you wanted a different pillow. The room did get warm in the afternoons as the sun moved across the sky and we had to close the curtains in the bedroom for a few hours. The view from the bedroom is spectacular. Wow! Luxury and privacy as we could not hear our neighbors. The decks offered privacy screens. with only 80 bungalows, even with all the bungalows booked, the resort never felt crowded.

We had breakfasts included (half price -$50 for 2 each day) if you take the offer at check in. The breakfast buffet included a multitude of items (breads - croissants, pan au chocolate, etc), eggs, pancakes/crepes, cereals, fruits, yogurts, hot/more savory items and juices/waters and coffee/tea. We certainly didn't leave hungry.

There is the Sands restaurant where we ate lunch each day. The vanilla iced tea is really delicious. I will need to try to make some vanilla sugar at home to try to replicate.

we ate dinner at the Reef restaurant one night (ala carte menu) and had the two theme night buffets (the polynesian dance night and the fire dance BBQ). I am not a fan of buffets and unfortunately this one was about what I expected. The entertainment was wonderful and I was very happy to have gone to both, but the buffet food is just not good. I was happy to have chicken strips at both buffets, but the chicken at both was raw in the middle. There is a great variety of fish to try as well as other dishes. The fire dancer was very entertaining and we had a blast dancing on stage with the other dancers.

there is a spa (which we didn't use), a gym (which we did), a pearl shop and a store that sells a variety of sundries (snacks, travel items, souveniers, etc).

The concierge was so very helpful, answering all our questions and booking us on a tour of the main island. Booking a tour with the concierge waives the $33 round trip water taxi fee.

A special shout out to the general manager, who remembered our name even though we only told her once. She was so very welcoming each morning at breakfast.

There are paddleboards, kayaks and an outrigger to try your hand at in the lagoon. Happy hour each night at the 'sunset theater' where you can gather to watch the sun go down behind Mount Otemanu. Sheer perfection. We hated to leave and hope that someday we can return to this corner of paradise.

thank you IC Thalasso staff for making my dream vacation a memory to cherish.
