In addition to the Gold List accolades, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa was also listed as one the "World's Best Beach Hotels" and for having one of the most "Beautiful Hotel Pools" by Conde Nast Traveler. The resort is located on a virgin beach on Motu Piti Aau with breathtaking views of Bora Bora's majestic Mount Otemanu.

The resort's Deep Ocean Spa by Algotherm is the very first spa to utilize the benefits of deep-sea water and minerals extracted from the Pacific Ocean in its signature spa treatments. It is also the first resort in the world that produces its own air-conditioning from water extracted from the ocean.

As a special Tahitian touch, guests can indulge in a private canoe-delivered breakfast within the privacy of their bungalows.
