The InterConti's Thalasso Spa on Bora Bora is the first of its kind to apply the innovative deep-sea water therapy. The Thalasso and Balneo Centre was designed and developed by none other than Dr. Treguer, who has also built the celebrated Thermal Bath in Monaco.


The Bora Bora Thalasso Spa is operated by the Algotherm Company. The corporate history dates back to 1962, when the company was founded in Brittany, France. Located on the Atlantic adjacent to vast algae fields, Brittany is one of the few location world-wide where the precious ocean algae are harvested.


The Thalasso Spa's most innovative treatment, however, applies water that is pumped from a depth of 1000 metres. Uniquely rich in minerals, the deep-sea water is known and celebrated for its healing properties.


Before it is carefully applied to the skin to mineralise the body, the deep-sea water is heated to a temperature between 32° and 35° Celsius. Among others, the deep-sea water is applied in beauty treatments, relaxation sessions, vitalisation and anti-aging therapies.


The InterConti Thalasso Spa's facilities furthermore include a Hamman, fully-equipped gym and aerobic room, meditation gardens as well as a massage room complete with a glass bottom floor. Allow caring hands to spoil you with a professional massage while watching the fish dart about below!
