InterContinental Tahiti Resort, French Polynesia

Located on the Northern shore of Tahiti, the InterContentiental Tahiti Resort overlooks a stunning, secluded lagoon that gives visitors unspoiled views of Moorea, Tahiti’s neighbouring island.

The chief activity at the resort is diving, as the hotel has its very own diving centre (Bathys). As well as scuba diving, guests have the opportunity to traverse the hotel’s lagoon by kayak, try deep-sea fishing or to enjoy a bout of whale or dolphin watching.

For guests who aren’t a fan of watersports there are many other activities on offer, including Tahitian quilt-making, fish feeding or tours of the nearby Bora Bora. Although, if that also sounds like too much effort is required then guests are welcome to spend their days sipping fresh cocktails and soak away their worries in the hotel’s outdoor infinity pool.
