InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is the leading chain of luxury hotels in French Polynesia, and one of the first to move into the archipelago. We were able to secure the most beautiful spots in the Society Islands, where our three establishments can be found, and for which we strive to develop sustainable actions wherever and whenever possible.
In keeping with the vision of our parent company, Pacific Beachcomber S.C., our mission is to provide exemplary, authentic and enriching travel experiences for our guests that are environmentally sensitive, sustainable and celebratory of Polynesian cultural heritage. We believe in the power of travel to make the world a better place, protecting our natural and cultural heritage for future generations through exploration, discovery, education and conservation.

Why We Care:
At the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort, we celebrate a relaxed sense of place and tranquility that is so difficult to find in today’s increasingly hectic world. This allows our guests the opportunity to recharge and be inspired by their stay. Fostering a culture of caring for Bora Bora and its people is both our honor and responsibility, and we strive to extend a warm welcome and authentic island hospitality to our visitors.
Caring for the Environment
We at InterContinental French Polynesia are guided by an unwavering commitment to protect the precious island ecosystems where we operate. Continuously improving sustainable operations by adopting and spreading environmental best practices is a mission we take seriously.
Caring for Nature & Culture
Core to our sustainability mission are efforts to introduce guests to French Polynesia’s breathtaking natural diversity and cultural heritage. The archipelago has inspired generations of travelers, including artist Paul Gauguin and explorer James Cook, and so we invite guests to participate firsthand in our conservation programs in hopes they will become stewards of this environment. We also integrate rich cultural experiences into the resort’s daily offerings in order to help safeguard these vibrant cultural riches.
Caring for People
We believe tourism should benefit both travelers and local communities, and we constantly strive to support and promote the people of French Polynesia, resulting in meaningful relationships across the islands.
