DISCOVERING FRENCH POLYNESIA
French Polynesia enjoys a tropical marine climate, with lots of sun all year round and just enough rain to nurture the growth of luxuriant vegetation and all the region’s colourful flowers. We receive an annual average of eight hours of sunshine per day, with temperatures between 24°C (75°F) and 30°C (86°F), and lagoon water temperatures between 23°C (73°F) and 26°C (79°F). There are two distinct seasons in Tahiti. November to April is the wet season with January the wettest month. August is the driest month.
An exotic luxury experience with InterContinental Resorts
InterContinental French Polynesia offers four different resorts in the Society Archipelago. The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is the fourth resort in our portfolio, and the first to utilise deep-sea Pacific Ocean water in all its signature spa treatments. Opened in May 2006, our resort is located on a reef islet on the eastern side of Bora Bora, accessible only by boat.
The other InterContinental resort in Bora Bora is the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort, a 4-star property located on the main island, at Matira Point. This intimate boutique hotel offers a long, private white-sand beach and crystal-clear turquoise water.
While you’re on holiday in French Polynesia, you should take the opportunity to visit the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa, nestled in Cook's Bay on Moorea. Sheltered by volcanic mountains and surrounded by wild tropical gardens, this island resort gives you a taste of ancient Polynesia.
The InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa, located on the island of Tahiti, features sprawling resort grounds and two stunning pools that showcase panoramas of Tahiti's sister island, Moorea.
