This luxurious Polynesian hideaway is located in Papetoai, on the Northwest coast of Moorea, set in 27 acres of lush tropical garden. With its backdrop of volcanic peaks and outlook over the crystal blue waters of the lagoon, the resort has a truly wonderful tropical setting. Soak up the atmosphere of the island as you relax on the stunning beach, or around the new infinity pool.
The Intercontinental Moorea has fairly recently completed a muti-million dollar rebuilding and refurbishment programme and re-opened for guests on 1st July 2010. They have built a fantastic, new 360sqm infinity pool at the top of the main beach with a smaller 75sqm pool above the main one. Both new pools have specatacular views of the lagoon over the beach. The original pool area has been landscaped into a spacious terrace and part of this is an outdoor extension to the refurbished Fare Hana Restaurant.
Accommodation ranges from air conditioned hotel rooms, garden or beach bungalows to over water bungalows. All accommodation rooms and bungalows have been upgraded and refurbished and all are furnished and decorated to the highest standards. The garden bungalows have an extended private terrace with their own plunge pool, beach bungalows have an extended deck area and the overwater bungalows have new pontoons with direct access to the water. All rooms have air-conditioning, ceiling fans, ensuite facilities with separate showers, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, refrigerator with mini-bar, complimentary tea & coffee facilities, iron & ironing board, in room safe, IDD telephone, Cable/Satellite TV, ADSL high speed Internet access and opening doors onto a private terrace or deck with sun furniture.
There are 2 Restaurants to choose from at the Intercontinental Moorea. The Fare Nui offers a gourmet menu and extensive wine list, with views over the new pool and the lagoon beyond. The Fare Hana has a more informal feel with lighter fare, either inside or outside on the new extended pool terrace. The pool terrace is also where you will find the Motu-Iti Bar, where you can sample cocktails, and watch Polynesian shows and live music, or just sit and watch the sun go down with drink in hand.
Once a week, there is also a 'Soiree Barbecue' on the beach, with grilled meat and local fish with salads and fresh island fruits. And if you want a romantic day out, you can take a picnic lunch to the deserted motu (small island) nearby.
For the more energetic, you can make use of the fitness centre and the Kids Club or choose from a range of activities and land and water sports, such as tennis, 4X4 excursions, diving, snorkeling and kayaking. The hotel is the Tahitian home of the Pacific Dolphin research foundation and the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, where you can experience the wonder of swimming with the dolphins, or see wild turtles close up - an experience not to be missed and one never forgotten.
And when you need to relax, the Spa Helene has massages and treatments to soothe.

Although there are frequent
international flights into Tahiti, French Polynesia's international
gateway to the World, there are limited airports of embarkation to
choose from, with currently only Paris, Los Angeles, Auckland and
Tokyo offering single plane air service to Tahiti.
The international airline for French Polynesia. is Air Tahiti Nui, who operate daily flights from Paris and Los Angeles to Tahiti, and on some days there are additional fights to/from Los Angeles. In addition, they operate two weekly flights to/from Auckland and they serve Tokyo twice a week. Their services to New York and Sydney have been suspended, at this time.
Air France currently offer a service from Paris, three times a week via Los Angeles
Air New Zealand operates twice a week from/to Auckland with it's own aircraft, it also operates a codeshare arrangements with Air Tahiti Nui providing seats on their two weekly fights from Tahiti to Auckland.
Air Calin operate a weekly flight between Noumea, in New Caledonia, and Tahiti.
Hawaiian Airlines provide a weekly service between Honolulu and Tahiti, currently operating on a Saturday/Sunday schedule.
LANChile operate a flight once a week from Santiago to Tahiti via Easter Island, providing the availability to do a great side trip from Tahiti to Easter island.
Air Tahiti is French Polynesia's domestic airline, which operates an extensive domestic flight network covering all the country's main islands, with at least a daily service. With the main Society islands receiving a number of flights a day, since Air Moorea stopped operations between Tahiti and Moorea, the flight connections now to Moorea have become limited, most connections between the two are now done by ferry boat.
The less populated and outer islands have a restricted service, so sometimes a night stop in Tahiti may be required when connecting to these islands.
Air Tahiti provide the only air service between Tahiti and the Cook islands, which they currently do once a week on a Thursday, an extra high season flight is operated between June and August
There are a number of aircraft and helicopters available for private charters, but they all tend to be based in Tahiti so arranging charters between the outer islands can be expensive as the aircraft will originate and terminate in Tahiti. Starting sometime in 2013, there will be a new seaplane operation available. The aircraft will be based in Tahiti and will be available for sightseeing tours from Papeete, as well as private transfers to the outer islands. This could add an exciting experience to your trip!
