One of Tahiti's best sleeps, with overwater bungalows, two infinity pools, a swim-up bar and private beach
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.
