Tahara'a InterContinental guest room and balcony

Title

Tahara'a InterContinental guest room and balcony

Description

In designing the Tahara'a iinteriors, Prince took his interior design cues from the ocean, working with a palette of turquoise, dark blue, midnight blue, and sea green for the guest rooms and for the accents of the outdoor pool area—everything from the poolside umbrellas and lounge chairs to the towels. The Tahara'a InterContinental Hotel closed in 1974.
