InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa Completes Multimillion Renovation
July 14 2010

InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa has announced the completion of a massive, multimillion dollar renovation.

The refurbishment includes substantial terrace extensions of all bungalows (garden, beach and overwater), the addition of private plunge pools to all Garden Bungalows, a new poolside restaurant and bar, as well as two new Infinity pools.

The overwater bungalows, majestically floating over the ocean, enjoy hugely improved direct access to the water with the creation of a sea-level platform and ladder, as well as an outdoor shower.

The bungalow terrace extensions are shaded by a thatched gazebo furnished with a table and chairs for outside entertainment and also feature a solarium area with lounge chairs for sun bathing. Each of the 17 Garden Bungalows features private Infinity plunge pools.

Additionally, a flight of steps and a beachside outdoor shower have been added for convenient beach access.

The heart of the hotel has been transformed with the creation of two new Infinity pools between the newly landscaped restaurant terrace and the main beach. Overlooking the picturesque blue waters of the South Pacific, the new resort pool is located at the top of the main beach, measures 3,875 square feet and boasts spectacular views of the lagoon and ocean as water cascades down from a smaller Infinity pool built above.

Also added is a new poolside restaurant, Motu Oné, and swim-up bar, Motu Iti Bar, located on the sunset side of the beach. Motu Oné serves cocktails and seaside dishes all day until late evening. The stage nestled between the pools at sea-level offer a picturesque setting for guests to enjoy the resort’s celebrated Polynesian shows. In addition to a swim-up bar where guests can enjoy a tropical cocktail, a landscaped outdoor terrace has been created as an extension of the Fare Hana restaurant where guests can dine on exquisite cuisine overlooking one of the most picturesque settings in the world.

Additionally, InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa recently garnered EarthCheck Silver Certification, which recognizes the hotel’s outstanding sustainability initiatives. EarthCheck is a program used by travel and tourism institutions around the world to validate and illustrate carbon claims and environmental programs, and is the largest environmental benchmarking, certification and management system in the industry.

InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa continuously strives to raise environmental awareness and employs safe environmental practices. The resort houses the Moorea Dolphin Center, which donates a substantial portion of its proceeds to marine wildlife research and research grants; and the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Center, serving as a hospital to ill and injured turtles from surrounding islands. The clinic is managed by the non-profit foundation, Te Mana o Te Moana, for which Richard H. Bailey, the resort’s owner, is a founding member.

InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa is also a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (UICN), as well as the international “Reef Check” program, a voluntary-based research organization which observes local marine growth and educates the public for a better understanding of coral biology.
