Just looked at the pics of the meridian. It's nice, but to me, captures no culture of the area. That's what I loved about both intercontinental's. they completely felt part of the environment - not a New York hotel transported to FP.
That's just my opinion. In bora, there are 2 IC's. one is very modern, like the meridian, the other is more traditional, integrated if you will. We stayed at the latter and loved it. My wife was happy there, but when we did visit the other location, she said she would have been happy there too.
If you plan on doing a couple of islands, do bora last!! All else will pale in comparison - at least you will save the best for last!
