InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa Permanently Closing

InterContinental Moorea Resort

The InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa in French Polynesia will be permanently closing.

In a letter by area general manager Guillaume Épinette, he says, “The global health and economic downturn resulting from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has had an exceptionally 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.”
