Did you know that “Tahiti” is used to refer to the entire country of French Polynesia, but Tahiti is also the name of the main island in French Polynesia? The island of Tahiti is where the action happens- it’s the country’s hub for business, it’s where the major airport is located, and it’s where most of the residents of the country live. It’s because of these things that the island of Tahiti is often overlooked. When spending thousands of dollars to escape to paradise, you typically don’t want to stay in an area that is busy and built up. However, Tahiti is much more than its capitol, Papeete, and the place to stay on the island is the InterContinental Tahiti Resort.
