Only Villas on Earth Air-Conditioned by Deep-Drawn Seawater
Guests will discover their villas will be the only ones on earth to be air-conditioned by this deep-drawn seawater, without the slightest threat to the environment. Incorporating this 21st Century approach to the fullest, the InterContinental Resort and Thalasso Spa Bora Bora will offer guests much more than a room with a great view.
Instead, the hotel plans to nurture complete harmony between mind, spirit and nature, which goes miles if not light years beyond the previously traditional Enjoy Your Stay. But before guests even get a chance to look at the view, they will realize that they are standing on a motu, or islet, within Bora Bora's famous lagoon. The hotel describes the view as a universe of tranquility overlooking the majesty of Mount Otemanu. From inside the 330+ square foot (100 sq. meter) villas, guests will not have the classic spectacular views. Instead, the hotel says, they will have dazzling views. And the villas are named after three precious stones, each depending on the view. The 21 Emerald villas have a view over the beach and the motu. The 24 Sapphire villas have a view over the lagoon and the island of Bora Bora. The 35 Diamond villas have a view of the lagoon and Mount Otemanu. There also are three Motu Family Suites. The hotel also plans on giving ecotourism, escape and wellness a whole new dimension. The soft opening will last for May and June as the hotel and its staff of some 125 employees swings into full gear with real guests for the first time. To make the transition smooth for all concerned, General Manager Silvio Bion is only opening 40 villas on May 1, increasing to 60 on June 1 and then finally the full 80 on July 1.
