InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is the leading chain of luxury hotels in French Polynesia, and one of the first to move into the archipelago. Our resorts were able to secure the most beautiful spots in the Society Islands, where our three establishments can be found, and for which we strive to develop sustainable actions wherever and whenever possible.
- In keeping with the vision of our parent company, Pacific Beachcomber S. C., our mission is to provide exemplary, authentic, and enriching travel experiences for our guests that are environmentally sensitive, sustainable, and that celebrate Polynesian cultural heritage.
- We believe in the power of travel to make the world a better place, protecting our natural and cultural heritage for future generations through exploration, discovery, education and conservation.
At the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa, the island’s relaxed sense of place and tranquility, difficult to find in today’s increasingly hectic world, allows our guests the opportunity to recharge and leave inspired.
