Latest news
In 2019, the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa will launch an ambitious renovation program to its Overwater Bungalows. This renovation will start on January 2nd, 2019, and will be completed by December 20th, 2019. The renovation will concern the concrete foundation of all bungalows as well as undertaking a complete interior renovation.
The Overwater Bungalows will not be completely closed as one part will be opened from January 2nd to August 31st and the second part from September 1st to December 12th.
All movements to the construction site will be done via the lagoon to preserve the Garden and Beach bungalows areas. Visual and noise nuisance will be limited (there is no construction during the week end) and the normal operation of the resort will not be impacted.

Moorea Dolphin Center programs may be subject to changes.

Our Opinion
The InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa is EarthCheckGold certified, and is the first resort to be in French Polynesia. Each of our resorts also participates in the international Reef Check program and has a “Green Team,” a group of hotel staff members, including the in-house marine biologist/veterinarian, to brainstorm ideas to conserve and protect the environment.
The InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa is also home to the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Center, serving as a hospital to ill and injured turtles from the surrounding islands, and to the Moorea Dolphin Center, which offers interactive programs with retired American navy bottlenose dolphins in order to educate both tourists and locals. The proceeds are donated to Te Mana o Te Moana to fund marine wildlife research and research grants.
