Tahiti 4-star water villas close to airport for US$439 per night
An island dripping in tropical charm, Tahiti serves as a once in a lifetime dream vacation for many. With swaying palm trees, white sand beaches, local culture and crystal clear waters teeming with fish, it's easy to see why so many travelers choose the South Pacific for their paradise vacation.
What makes Tahiti even better is that it doesn't have to be a once in a lifetime vacation. Though the area is known for its high prices, not all rooms cost an arm and leg. In fact, overwater room rates start at only US$439 per night for two people at the InterContinental Tahiti Resort. At this resort you'll find activities, amenities and convenience wrapped neatly with an island inspired bow.

Couples who are looking for a relaxing resort that's also full of adventurous activities at a budget friendly price will find this rate perfect for their ideal vacation. With that in mind, this rate is only available during the months of August and September with rate increases common throughout the rest of the year.

Large rooms with a view
There are 32 overwater bungalows to choose from with the smallest sizing up at 500 sq ft. This size also includes a nice terrace that points out into the ocean, providing a great view throughout the day and into the night. Each terrace is covered with a thatched roof and includes sun loungers, allowing you to sit comfortably outside without the worry of getting burnt.
Inside each room, guests will find a refrigerator, coffee and tea maker, a bathroom with a tub and TV, a separate living room and sitting area, a hanging closet that's big enough for luggage storage, a sofa bed alongside a king sized bed, individually controlled air conditioning and other extras including bathrobes. Each room is detailed in calming hues of tans and browns, helping to ease you gently into vacation mode.
Close to the airport and activities
Located a short distance from the local airport, about 2 miles, the InterContinental Tahiti resort is easily reached via taxi or by the local transportation system. This helps to reduce vacation costs as guests aren't required to take an added water taxi or sea plane ride to the resort. Because of the close proximity to town, guests can easily explore the area and experience the local dining and shopping opportunities after a morning full of snorkeling.
In addition to local snorkeling, both at the resort and elsewhere around the island, you'll have the opportunity to partake in tennis, swim in 1 of the resort's 2 pools, exercise in the 24 hour health and fitness center, lounge at the resort's private beach and spend a few hours getting lost within 30 acres of gardens. You'll also find a spa on-site that offers massages and other treatments. For those who love a good tour, you'll find that there are lots of tours available around the island, both on land and in the water.
