The InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa in French Polynesia will close permanently, with area general manager Guillaume Epinette citing “unforeseeable market conditions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.”

“The global health and economic downturn resulting from the novel coronavirus has had an exceptionally devastating impact on the travel and tourism industry,” said Epinette in a statement. “The permanent closure of the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa has been a very hard but carefully considered decision taken to preserve our other hotels within Pacific Beachcomber hotel group.”

Pacific Beachcomber Hotels owns three other InterContinental resorts in French Polynesia: InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa, InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa and InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort

Those three properties and the InterContinental Moorea have been shuttered since late March due to the Covid-19 crisis.

InterContinental’s Tahiti and Bora Bora resorts are expected to reopen June 30.
