Fa'a'ā, French Polynesia
InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa
What it is
A collection of 246 overwater bungalows and garden rooms fronting a pristine lagoon, with multiple pools, a scuba center, marine-inspired spa and unmissable tiki bar.
What it isn't
Bored on the beach. Experiences here include everything from jetski tours to whale watching with the pros.
What we think
The Tahiti of your dreams is here, and it’s just as perfect as you’ve imagined. The overwater bungalows are a honeymooner’s fever dream sprung to life, with their thatched roofs, private 177-square-foot terraces, and only-in-Tahiti design touches, such as the woven rattan headboards and lush tropical upholstery. We also love the Premium Rooms, complete with gauzy canopied headboards and panoramic views of the turquoise seas below. But we’d wager that you won’t be spending too much time in your guest room—not when white sand beaches, glass clear waters and two infinity pool options are right beyond your door (don’t miss the sand-bottomed Le Lotus pool, which has its own swim-up bar).
You're here because
You like to indulge in a spa day as often as possible, and the treatments here found their muse in Tahiti itself. The Lomi Lomi massage is a must.
Sitting in a soft breeze along the lagoon at Le Lotus Restaurant (helmed by Michelin starred Chef Bruno Oger), you almost pinch yourself…it’s all too beautiful to be real. And with one bite of your seared ahi tuna with lobster ravioli and Thai-style foam, it’s official…you’re coming back tomorrow.
