Intercontinental Resort Tahiti
June 6, 2013

I had the great pleasure of calling the Intercontinental Resort Tahiti my home for part of my time there. I found the resort to be an excellent place for a relaxing intro to paradise and thought to augment that last Tahiti related post it might be nice to focus more closely on a few of the little things that helped make my Intercontinental stay such a tropical treat.

Its topographically diverse terrain is spread across more than 302,319 hectares (roughly 75,000 acres or just over one square mile) and – living up to its UNESCO World Heritage status – offers visitors the opportunity to explore a “Mediterranean agro-pastoral cultural landscape” that's a unique mix of as rugged and wild as it sculptured by centuries of farming and adapted to suit the needs of the people living here as far back as prehistoric times.
