Voted by the Readers in the Magazine's Annual Poll of "The World's Best Places to Stay"

BORA BORA, French Polynesia, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa and the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort have been honored on the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler 2014 Gold List which recognizes "The World's Best Places to Stay."

Nearly 80,000 readers voted in the magazine's annual poll rating the world's top hotels, resorts, and cruise lines. The resorts received high marks as one of the best places to stay in French Polynesia and as one of the world's best hotels based on a variety of criteria including rooms, service, food, location, design, and activities. The 2014 Gold List can be found on the magazine's website www.cntraveler.com and is featured in the January 2014 issue on newsstands now.

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. Known for its exemplary service to its guests, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa features a number of unique attributes, including: 80 luxurious overwater villas each with a split-level terrace and sundeck for easy access to the turquoise waters of the lagoon; two of the finest culinary experiences in French Polynesia at its restaurants Reef and Corail; and the first overwater wedding chapel with glass-bottom floor in French Polynesia.

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.

Adorned by white sand and turquoise water, the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort features 64 junior suite-sized individual bungalows, including 50 overwater bungalows. The intimate resort is located on the south side of the main island, at the famous Matira point, which is recognized as the most beautiful site in French Polynesia. The resort features glass-bottom coffee tables which look into the natural aquarium of the lagoon and slide open, allowing guests to feed the fish below.  

As a special Tahitian touch, guests can indulge in a private canoe-delivered breakfast within the privacy of their bungalows. The resort's restaurant, Le Noa Noa serves gourmet French, Polynesian and international cuisine. It is also well-known for its Polynesian evenings that feature Tahitian food and traditional songs and performances.
