InterContinental Moorea Resort

Posted by

In January, 2013 I got to go on my bucket list dream trip to the French Polynesian Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. A lot of photos were posted here at that time, but there are so many more that I never got to. I want to revisit those island photos now starting with Moorea.

Believed to have inspired the mythical Bali Hai from James Michener's Tales of the South Pacific, Moorea is one of the most scenically striking islands in French Polynesia. Typical lodging along the water or on the mountain side has thatched roofs like these at the InterContinental Moorea Resort.

I do not know this one but I spent a few days in Moorea and Bora Bora a few years ago. These hotels are beautiful and superbly located. On the other hand I was a little bored on these islands, it's not what I prefer to do tourism
