Exterior view: Tahara'a InterContinental Hotel

Description

The hotel (in operation from 1968-1974) was dramatically perched on a cliff above one of Tahiti’s famed black sand beaches, with descending tiers of rooms spread out below the ridge of the hill and balcony trellises draped in bougainvillea. Each room offered views of the surrounding mountains and waters of Matavaia Bay.
