Sustainability in Action at InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa

People and Planet

A natural marine lagoonarium on property serves as a research project for coral reef regeneration where guests can learn up close how corals grow, while tropical plants found around the resort grounds offer insights into Tahitian ingredients used in local recipes and traditional flower leis. Solar panels help to provide renewable energy and a dedicated green team works daily to advance sustainability goals. The resort was also the first hotel in the world to use the sustainable Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) system, which provides cool air without harmful chemicals.

Local businesses benefit from the resort's sustainable purchasing policy that sources art, produce, and other goods from the area, while guests enjoy music and dance performances by Polynesian cultural ambassadors.
