InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa

A property connected … to nature!

Settled in the spectacular lagoon of Moorea, the Intercontinental Resort & Spa 4*, not only reflects guest service excellence, but it also show devotion, respect and understanding toward the marine fauna. This can be observed through their dolphin center, and turtle clinic structure located steps away from your overwater suite.

The Intercontinental Moorea Resort & Spa features 49 overwater bungalows (including 28 Premium Suites, with breath-taking views of the sunset!) peacefully nested on probably the most beautiful and quiet beach of Moorea, in Tiahura. This location conveniently shelters the property from sharp winds and allows an unobstructed West views on the horizon. There’s just no chance to find a better place to enjoy an exotic cocktail, and this is just the beginning!

A unique experience with Dolphins and Sea Turtles

The Island of Moorea is a perfect mix of everything French Polynesia has to offer: Exotic hikes in pristine valleys and untouched mountains, long walks on endless white sand beaches shaded by coconut palm trees, crystal clear turquoise lagoons and much more!

The Intercontinental Moorea Resort & Spa works with dedication in order to raise awareness in regards to the vulnerability of French Polynesian marine ecosystems. The hotel is home to Kuokoa, Hina and Lokahi, the three stars of the Moorea Dolphin Center.  Guided by the center’s vets and helpers, you will learn everything there is to know about these protected creatures, and this will be your chance to swim with them!

That is not all! About a decade ago, the resort has decided to hold some of its internal lagoon in order to invest in a Marine Turtle clinic. Close to 400 turtles (mostly juveniles) have had the chance to be treated. If you are lucky, you may witness a release of healthy turtles back in the ocean by the local association Te Mana o Te Moana. Beware, you might get emotional!
