Bora Bora

Overview

A tropical dreamscape of turquoise lagoons, sugar-sand beaches, and jagged volcanic peaks, Bora Bora remains an unspoiled gem in the emerald necklace of French Polynesia. Take time to explore the marine life teeming in its coral reefs, glide over the water on a jet ski or glass-bottom boat, or embark on an off-road safari offering breathtaking island views. And see for yourself why author James a. Michener called Bora Bora “the most beautiful island in the world.”

InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa

Paul Gauguin Cruises offers you the option for prolonging your experience of this idyllic island's exquisite beauty and unique culture. Discover the eco-friendly jewel that is the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, located between the "two hearts" of Motu Piti Aau, a coral island on the barrier reef. The Deep Ocean Spa offers treatments using deep sea water to replenish the body's minerals and restore equilibrium, and the resort also offers many other cultural and recreational activities to fill your days, including canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling, stargazing, and handicraft demonstrations.

Romantic Escapade

Experience the essence of true romance in an overwater bungalow at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa.

Depart the pier at Vaitape for a ground transfer to the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort, where you will transfer to a water launch to whisk you away to the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa.

During your stay, you will have access to a wide array of amenities, including the beach, kayaking, canoeing, a swimming pool, and tennis. You'll also enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner for two at the Reef restaurant, with Champagne included. The rest of the evening is at leisure.

You'll overnight at the hotel and enjoy breakfast delivered by canoe in the morning, before your midday transfer to the ship's tender pier. 

Program includes: One-night stay in an overwater villa; VIP Greeting upon arrival, consisting of a welcome drink and lei; access to a wide array of fun-filled activities including the beach, kayaking, canoeing, and tennis; one romantic candlelit dinner for two at the Reef restaurant, including one bottle of Champagne; one breakfast for two delivered by canoe to your villa; and roundtrip transfers to/from Vaitape pier via the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort.

Each of The Brando’s 35 deluxe villas has its own private beach area and plunge pool, and guests can also enjoy the resort’s restaurants showcasing Polynesian and French cuisine, a luxurious Polynesian spa, lagoon-view bar, beach bar, pool, organic garden, library, boutique, water sports, and environmental research station with guest programs. It’s the ultimate way for you to make the most of your  time in French Polynesia.
