So Stunning

Paradise on earth! The views took my breath away. For me this vacation was one for the books in terms of locality, beauty, resort and the people of Bora Bora.

The Staff at Intercontinental Bora Bora is Outstanding. The Diamond Otemanu Overwater Villa was situated in the perfect location with breathtaking views. The Villa was luxurious and boasts premium amenities, spacious indoor and outdoor living areas with a pristine water lagoon.

The highest point in Bora Bora should be in lots of your pictures. Sure you are going to get a lot of pictures with the gorgeous water, but this should get quite a bit too.

The most beautiful scenery that I have ever seen. If you look closely, you can see crosses and other artifacts on the mountains.

The best hotel to enjoy the view of the mountain is Le Meridien . Even just relaxing at the beach or if you stay at premium over water bungalow . Unobstructed view . And the bungalow is amazing with huge glass on the floor .

Rugged terrain sometimes straight up, but worth the visit. Along the way, we would turn a corner and be treated to a vista that seemed... More

There is nothing more relaxing and beautiful to sit on your deck and the Bora Bora Pearl Resort and watch the sunrise at 6:30 to 7:30 am and absorb the beauty of the water and mountain - the sky - clouds - the scenery and just love it all! And love the person you are with!
