Tahiti is an island in the French Polynesian Society Islands, located in the South Pacific Ocean. French Polynesia is an "overseas country" of 118 islands that are part of France, divided into five groups. The island of Tahiti is 1,045 square kilometers (403 square miles) in size, and home to almost 190,000 people, making up 70% of the entire population in French Polynesia. To get to any island in French Polynesia, you must connect through Tahiti, first! Needless to say, Tahiti is a much busier island, than her sister islands! It is still a beautiful island, but is definitely more commercialized!
InterContinental Tahiti Resort InterContinental Tahiti Resort was such a stunning place to stay! It does not have a real beach, but the ocean is right there along the rocks, with an incredible view of Mo'orea in the distance! There is a private lagoon for great swimming and abundant marine life, along with three massive pools for everyone to enjoy! I stayed in Classic Room 267, with a view overlooking the lagoon. The newly renovated room was very chic, simple, and beautiful. The five restaurants a the resort were delicious, with my favorite being the Lotus Swim-Up Bar! The views are surely beautiful, but get ready for the hustle and bustle atmosphere of Tahiti!
