The InterContinental Resort Tahiti sits on almost 30 acres of lush greenery and features two infinity pools (one with a swim-up bar), 32 overwater bungalows and 226 rooms in a collection of three beachside buildings. Bungalows have thatched roofs and mix chic furnishings with traditional wicker chairs and woven wall coverings. Dry-land accommodations have less Polynesian touches and dark wood furniture, but all feature private terraces or balconies. The Tiare Restaurant has an open kitchen, which serves healthy dishes including salads and freshly caught fish, best enjoyed while watching the nightly Tahitian dance performances. It’s a quieter vibe over at Le Lotus restaurant in an overwater building with a tinkling piano, romantic views and French cuisine. After dinner, head to the Tiki Bar (a local favorite) and go native by having your cocktail in a coconut.
In the Area
Local attractions in the nearby town of Papeete include Parc Bougainville, a good place to find some peace and shade, as is Tahiti’s oldest Catholic church, Cathédrale de l’Immaculée Conception. For those looking to spend, try Robert Wan for black pearls, (visit the Black Pearl Museum he set up too), and Papeete Market, where you can buy produce as well as souvenirs. Be sure to buy a crepe from one of the many roulottes (food trucks) on Vaiete Square near the waterfront, which is where the action is come evening.
How to Get There
Beautiful site with great bungalow on the lagoon ! Great swimming pools and beaches
The view the morning toward Moorea island is unique !
Bungalows are perfectly designed !
Restaurants are a nice place to go !
Service is very friendly local style and efficient .
Coming from a Long flight it’s a very nice place to stay few nights before to go to some others islands !
We stayed here because it was close to the airport but not so close you feel like a plane is landing on you. We used Jackie at Venture Tahiti travel agency for our multi island trip and she was excellent !
The hotel was beautiful and the grounds were amazing. Multiple pools and a snorkeling pool with fish. Great views, very peaceful , friendly staff and the room was great! If you’re planning a trip to Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora look into Venture Tahiti, they not only saved us money but made our trip seem less and easy the entire way . All we had to do was enjoy!
Even if you are only spending a day in Tahiti I recommend this hotel it was great !
We booked a visit to French Polynesia through an agent in the UK and the basically sorted all our travel and hotels out for us.
Our first stop was Tahiti. We got to the hotel at around 6am having travelled for pretty much 24 hours to get there. The staff were very welcoming and our room was ready to go. Check in was easy and we was driven with our luggage to our room. All very easy.
The room itself was great. Plenty big enough for the 3 of us (My wife, me and our 13 year old son). The view of the ocean was lovely and although the room was dated it was perfectly functional and suitable.
There is no beach at the hotel but there are 2 good size pools that didn’t ever get crowded. There is also a Lagoonarium. This was brilliant as you can snorkel around and see all the fish in a good sized lagoon that is shallow enough in some places to stand up in.
There was 2 restaurants both with limited menus and as all places in FP very expensive. This is not the hotel but the region. There is a couple of supermarkets not too far away (15 min walk) that you can go to to stock up on drink should you wish.
Overall a good hotel and well located for a quick stop on your way to see other islands.
