It is a sad day to see that the points community loses one InterContinental resort in Moorea, French Polynesia. The resort is part of an IHG program and considering how expensive French Polynesia can be, using hotel points to stay at one of the luxury resorts there such as this InterContentinal resort Moorea was a no brainier. Unfortunately, the resort is forever closed.
InterContinental Moorea Is Permanently Closed
Dear guests and partners,The global health and economic downturn resulting from the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has had an exceptionnally devastating impact on the travel and tourism industry. A significant income generating sector from many countries in the world including French Polynesia, the pandemic-induced crisis has left many countries who rely heavily on tourism revenue under considerable strain.Due to the scale of disruption faced by the tourism in “Tahiti and her Islands” and unforeseeable market conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to announce that the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa will not be reopening after the mandated closure period concludes.The permanent closure of the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa has been a very hard but carefully considered decision taken to preserve our other hotels within Pacific Beachcomber hotel group.You may contact your preferred sales representative or our reservations department for assistance with the cancellation of your bookings at the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa. Our reservations team is available to assist you by phone (+689 40 86 51 78) and by email ([email protected]).On behalf of the Pacific Beachcomber family, I would like to send our sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for your longstanding dedication and service throughout the years. We will be delighted to pursue our valuable partnership with our other Pacific Beachcomber properties and our teams in Tahiti and Bora Bora look forward to welcoming our common customers soon in the respect of both the required sanitary measures we have implemented and the Tahitian culture.With our best regards.Guillaume ÉPINETTEArea General Manager
