The InterContinental Le Moana lies along Matira Point at the southern end of Bora Bora’s main island and is, as the name suggests, a sister hotel of the InterContinental Thalasso across the lagoon which has a greater range of facilities, all of which guests at this InterContinental can access via shuttle boat.
It doesn’t have the same broad choice of accommodation as its sister hotel and many will consider the Thalasso branch, as it looks directly across the lagoon at the towering Mount Otemanu, to have a more scenic setting. Intercontinental Le Moana also has an extremely idyllic location though it must be said, nestling snugly as it does between the gorgeous white sands of Matira Point and the lush tropical hills behind.
It also offers equal amounts of luxury, service and style, and has an understated charm that may be lacking in the larger resort. Its smaller size, more convivial atmosphere, greater access to the main island and lower prices may just make it more preferable for many guests.
The Le Moana, as mentioned, doesn’t have the same range of accommodation on offer as the Thalasso, nor are the bungalows and villas on offer as large. Their standard size is 560 ft² with the largest being only a tad larger at 670 ft².
That being said they are just as luxurious and beautifully designed and decorated, and have a more intimate, cosy feel. So, if you don’t feel like paying premium prices just for extra space they will work out much better value.
The choices are overwater bungalows and beach villas both of which are stylish and sleek, and filled with modern comforts, with the overwaters all coming with a glass bottomed coffee table through which you can peer down into the coral reef.
They also have gorgeous views out over the lagoon and the nearby islands of Raiatea and Taha’a, a positive also shared by the beach villas which sit right at the edge of the powder like white sands.
All luxury hotel standard facilties are here: air-con, WiFi, cable TVs, music system, coffee makers, refrigerators & mini bars, and the bathrooms are all equipped with a spa-bath.

FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO:
Noa Noa, the main restaurant, serves French cuisine with a Polynesian twist in a semi al-fresco setting by the beach and has live evening entertainment on some evenings. The Vini Vini Bar and Terrace is a casual poolside venue which does good lunches and, until late, various snacks, drinks and great cocktails.
Private dining can be easily arranged too, and some fine meals can be delivered to your overwater bungalow by canoe, or on foot to your beach villa.
Guests of the InterContinental Le Moana Resort are welcome to use the extra facilities at the InterContinental Thalasso across the lagoon with their huge Deep Ocean Spa being a particular highlight. They also have a scuba dive center there, a fitness center/gym and a wider choice of dining and drinking venues.
The concierge at Le Moana can arrange all sorts of excursions and activities for guests, things like island tours, ATV jungle tours, hiking tours, kite surfing and feeding, and swimming with, sharks, sting rays and manta rays for example.
“Exceptional: Bungalows were fantastic with views of the lagoon and situated to maintain privacy. Bed was very comfortable and loved the soaker tub. We fed the fish multiple times a day through the sliding top glass coffee table and would go snorkeling right off the deck….”
