Excellent hotel for visiting Bora Bora Posted 06-Sep-2014
I was very happy with our choice of the Intercontinental Le Moana hotel for our stay in Bora Bora. We booked a horizon overwater bungalow (the ones farthest out--although, we booked on Expedia so we got the closest-in one of those...but it was still a very nice location). The bungalows at this Intercontinental aren't as big as the ones at the Thalasso, but I thought they were a very comfortable size (king bed, sitting area and desk, very large & modern bathrooms. The decor is very nice and feels authentic island (thatched roofs, etc). The balconies have an upper and lower deck and a ladder into the water. One great thing about this hotel is that it's on the southern tip of the main island and thus has a very large lagoon (the water is only 2-feet deep all the way out to the last bungalow--a good 100 yards). In addition, there is a lot of coral throughout the lagoon that attract hundreds of tropical fish. Each overwater bungalow has its own coral garden below a glass table (most other hotels have the glass-bottom table but no coral to attract the fish; in fact, most don't even have lagoons to speak of). The hotel has snorkel gear, kayaks, and paddleboards available for guest use. The staff was another highlight--everyone is very helpful and friendly, and the concierge happily took care of setting up any activities we wanted to do. The hotel did an excellent job of creating exactly the relaxing, stress-free vacation we were looking for.

The hotel being fully booked we have to be very careful with our availabilities and this is why we can’t confirm it in advance. Thank you so much for your kind review, your fair and detailed comments are greatly appreciated. We are delighted to read your feedback and that you have highlighted the staff.
