InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa
Probably one of the most “aspirational” destinations out there: French Polynesia. Your gateway to magical Moorea, Bora Bora and other islands with 50 shades of blue & green, is Tahiti.
The InterContinental Tahiti is located in Papeete, not far from the airport and serves as an excellent base to explore the island.
I rented a scooter and headed South along the West coast of the island, if you have some time to spend – make sure you include a visit to Teahupo’o, a village almost on the other side of the island where you can see waves up to 7 (!) meters! Not impressed yet? Check some of the pictures on Red Bull’s website.
If you’re planning on splurging for an overwater villa experience, I’d personally recommend waiting until you’ve reached the oher island as the water isn’t yet cristal clear, but nevertheless, they recently refurbished the rooms and it’s a job well done.
