Intercontinental Resort And Thalasso Spa Bora Bora Now Open

InterContinental Resort and Thalasso Spa Bora Bora, the newest resort in one of the world’s most idyllic locations, is now open and about to rewrite the definition of luxury accommodation in the Pacific.

The new InterContinental Resort will lay claim to being the first in Bora Bora to have every one of its 80 rooms sitting over the clear waters of the lagoon and, with each one measuring over 100 square metres of floor space, guests won’t even have to leave their bungalows to enjoy the location. Each bungalow features its own expansive private terrace and separate bathing deck, and is fitted out with everything you’d expect – and some things that would surprise – of a luxurious island retreat.

InterContinental Resort and Thalasso Spa Bora Bora will also be the first to introduce an environmentally friendly seawater air conditioning system, cooling every part of the resort with deep sea water and reducing electricity consumption, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

The May opening is a precursor to the official September opening of the Deep Ocean Spa – a full spa facility that guests can use for day or residential treatments. It will be the only Thalasso Spa facility in the South Pacific, managed by the renowned French marine cosmetic laboratory, Algotherm. To book, visit call 1-800-221-335 from Australia or visit www.borabora.intercontinental.com.
