Landscaped with immaculate gardens of fruit trees and fragrant tropical foliage, the Intercontinental Resort Tahiti is conveniently located just five minutes from the airport and ideal for exploring the wonders of Tahiti. The resort faces directly towards the island of Moorea and you can enjoy unforgettable views as the sun sets over Moorea’s volcanic peaks from nearly any vantage point on the property.

There are 180 air-conditioned guest rooms in the main body resort, some overlooking the luscious gardens, idyllic beach and tranquil azure lagoon. Clustered offshore there are 32 over-water bungalows, these are the only over-water bungalows on the island of Tahiti, from which you can step off your deck straight into the warm ocean.

There are several beaches on the property and two swimming pools; one with a swim-up bar and white sand bottom, as well as an extensive selection of water sports, including diving, snorkeling, water skiing and deep sea fishing.

The Tiare, with its open kitchen is at the heart of the resort and serves everything form light snacks and healthy salads to fresh fish specialties. Several nights a week there is a buffet and entertainment to showcase the huge variety of Tahitian gourmet specialties. Le Lotus is a secluded, quiet and romantic restaurant for fine dining over the calm lagoon waters under a thatched roof. For drinks and snacks, the Tiki Bar, swim up bar in the pool or Lobby Bar all great venues and serve tropical cocktails and some fabulous wines.

The resort can also organize scuba diving for all levels, helmet diving (great for those wanting to experience the deep underwater world without the qualifications of a dive course), sunset cruises, and a whole host of other land and sea excursions.

Location & Directions

Tahiti, French Polynesia

Located 8km from Papeete, the capital of Tahiti, alongside the lagoon with a view of Tahiti’s sister island, Moorea.

When to go

Although there is a wet and a dry season in Tahiti the weather is tropical and generally sunny and warm, with just enough rain to keep the lush landscapes alive and green. If you're looking for emptier beaches, try traveling during the wet or "off" season, which generally runs from November to April. During this time, you can expect very high humidity with brief and frequent storms. January is the rainiest of the months. During this time, tropical storms may occur, but the Tahitian Islands have not experienced a cyclone since the early 90s. If you're traveling to the islands of Tahitit to scuba, you'll probably want to go in the dry or "high" season, when visibility is the best. The dry season runs from May to October and you can expect less rain, although occasional night time downpours are not uncommon. Due to tradewinds, July and August are the coolest times of the year and also tend to be the most crowded.
