Crush Of The Week: InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa

The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is a floating oasis in the South Pacific. It features all overwater bungalows with only three beachfront villas as the alternative. Found on the southeastern side of the coral reef, on Motu Piti Aau, these luxurious accommodations face the spectacular Mount Otemanu and boast incredible views of Bora Bora. Here, modern architecture flourishes with an authentic Polynesian design, accentuating a color palette that reflects the sapphire blue of the surrounding lagoon.

Designed with the utmost environmental sensitivity, the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa is a sustainable sanctuary of which the exquisite Deep Ocean Spa is the centerpiece. The resort operates on revolutionary technology that draws seawater from the depths of the ocean and reuses it for electricity. Another unique facet is the resort's stunning overwater wedding chapel, which features an impressive glass aisle and large window that frames the remarkable mountainous view.
