There are few places on Earth like French Polynesia. This paradise has some of the best snorkeling we’ve ever experienced, with sharks, sting rays, manta rays, moray eels, myriad varieties of fish, corals, and more. On land, the white sand beaches and lush jungles are breathtaking. And staying in an overwater bungalow is the icing on the cake.
There is a lot to do at the Intercontinental Tahiti resort itself. There are a few restaurants, amazing views of Moorea, snorkeling in a lagoon open to the ocean, huge swimming pool, and more. We had a newly renovated Superior Garden View Room and it was pretty nice. Aside from the nice view, my favorite part of the room was the pillow menu. That was a new one for me and I definitely made use of it.
The restaurant at the Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora has a Tahitian / Polynesian dance show every night. You can check out our video above. They change the shows every day, and once a week, they have a special traditional fire dance performance that is absolutely fantastic. I didn’t have my camera that night, but if you can, be sure to catch that show on Thursday nights.
