Known as the most romantic island in the world, Bora Bora is surrounded by an inspiring lagoon, resembling an artist’s palette of blues and greens. For most visitors to Bora Bora, it’s love at first sight!
Lush, tropical mountain slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, and palm-covered islets circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters, where colorful fish animate the coral gardens. The ambiance couldn’t be more romantic, especially within luxury resorts such as the Hotel InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort.
After disembarking the ship, you will transfer by bus to the Hotel InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort.
Located on the famous Matira Point along the island’s most beautiful beach, the InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort is a friendly hotel adorned with a crystal-clear lagoon.
The resort's overwater bungalows share a southeastern view of the outstretched lagoon and the nearby islands of Raiatea and Taha'a and each features a glass coffee table, providing your own private aquarium with access to the lagoon below as well as a private ladder into the lagoon.
Prior to check in you may wish to have lunch at the Vini Vini Bar. Lunch is on your own.
Check in is at 3:00pm and the remainder of the day is yours to enjoy as you please.
Relax on the terrace of your overwater bungalow admiring the views of the surrounding lagoon and mountain peaks. Indulge in the services at the spa. Stroll the idyllic beach, pausing every so often in the shade of a swaying palm. Take an invigorating dip in the swimming pool. Or if you are feeling ambitious, enjoy water sports such as an outrigger canoe ride or snorkeling in the sea’s crystal-clear waters. Non-motorized water toys are included in the cost of the program. This is your time in paradise with no schedule to follow other than your own.
In the evening, as the resort becomes illuminated with soft lighting, the atmosphere becomes even more romantic and memorable. The ambiance is ideal for dinner which is included at the resort. Afterwards, feel free to stroll about the resort before retiring in your thatched-roof bungalow that’s perched over the water.
Wake up to another day in paradise. Enjoy breakfast in the resort restaurant and some time at leisure before checking out and being transferred by bus back to the ship’s tender pier.

The humidity during this time can be quite heavy and muggy and cloud cover is common. Storms are frequent, brief and unpredictable. Temperatures generally range from 27 - 30 degrees C (80-86 degrees Fahrenheit), with the hottest months being February and March.
By contrast, the dry season (May through October) is the Polynesian winter. Temperatures generally range from 24-28 degrees C (75-82 degrees Fahrenheit) and rain is rare.
