Special Note affecting the following cruises only - Marina Dec 27, Marina Jan 16 and Marina Jan 27:
Hotel InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa - Temporary Closure of the Swimming Pool & Spa: As a compensation for existing and future bookings, the hotel will post a 5000xpf (approx $50 USD) credit per couple on our guest's account that they can use at leisure on site. This voucher is non refundable if not used at the hotel. Applicable on drinks, Internet access and Boutique Azur. Non applicable for Activities or Spa.
For the past few weeks, we have been observing a major leak in the swimming pool of the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa. Our investigation unfortunately leaves us with no other alternative than to close it for repair and this will happen between January 07, 2013 and February 28, 2013.
Since the pool and the Deep Ocean Spa share the same fresh water supply system, we will also be closing the Spa from January 21st, 2013 to February 28th, 2013, an opportunity to refurbish it. However, during this period, we will still provide massage services in 3 of our overwater villas, fully equipped for this service.
Known as the most romantic island in the world, Bora Bora is surrounded by an inspiring lagoon, resembling an artist's palette of blues and greens, sparking a love at first sight with all its visitors. Romantics from around the world have laid claim to this island where the castle-like Mount Otemanu pierces the sky. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters where colored fish animate the coral gardens as they greet the giant manta rays. This could be easily be described as the center of the romantic universe, where luxury resorts and spas dot the island with overwater bungalows, thatched roof villas, and fabled ambience.
