Intercontinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort Review

Home » Accommodations » Intercontinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort Review

The Intercontinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort is the top hotel in the Matira area and one of the best places to stay in all of Bora Bora and the Society Islands. It’s probably my preferred hotel on Bora Bora as it is situated in the area of arguably the best beach (Matira Beach) and lagoon in French Polynesia.

It gives you the best of both worlds with ongoing contact with the lives of locals and easy access to local restaurants and events.

You also get access to Bora Bora’s legendary “Resort life” on the motus via the Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, Intercontinental’s flag bearer on the island.

It has everything you’d expect from a 5-star resort on Bora Bora but on a scale that is comfortable and certainly not overbearing. You can also get free airport shuttles straight to the resort for your convenience.

There are only 63 guest rooms, all with great views. The Intercontinental Le Moana is private and relaxing to stay in, with beach bungalows that make your vacation unforgettable. The two restaurants and bar are all you need for drinks and dining.

There’s never a day when Bora Bora’s lagoon is other than at its best. If the wind is on-shore just stroll a few metres across to the other side of the peninsula to regain paradise.

The above photo shows you the Intercontinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort with its overwater bungalows set strategically over the best the lagoon has to offer.

The island off to the left accommodates the Sofitel Marara Private Island resort behind which is the coral garden, a very popular snorkeling spot. You can easily Tahaa and Raiatea visible in the background.

The hotel is located in a convenient location to undertake a myriad of activities both on the lagoon and on the island itself. The hotel staff is friendly and always ready to help you plan your next fun tour.

Head up the road that leads out to the tip of Point Matira for around 100 meters and you’ll find an excellent jet ski tour on your left.

A little further south of the hotel, along the beach, you can find a tour offering shark feeding, swimming with manta rays and a different swim with sting rays.

If you’re looking for something special on land, consider climbing up Mount Otemanu to the cave near the summit. It offers absolutely gob-smacking views out over the lagoon and the resorts for which Bora Bora is known for.

It’s unsurprisingly one of the most expensive places to stay in Bora Bora, but with it’s ideal location and luxurious amenities, it’s worth the price. Check-in is at 3:00 pm, and check-out is at 11:00 am, which is pretty standard for hotels on the island.
