"Another Trip to the Islands."

Dramatic views. Take a trip there in the evening to some of the restaurants on the island, or watch the sunset from the St. Regis Lagoon Restaurant.

My family and I had rented a private tour. We went all over the lagoon and all views/side of Mt. Otemanu is magnificent. From the ocean's color changing and post card effects on the pictures are totally worth it. Will surely be back.

Mt Otemanu is stunning - no matter which angle you look from. Rented a bike from Avis and went around the island and enjoyed so many views of this mountain.

We loved seeing Mount Otemanu's changing faces throughout the day when we went on our lagoon tour. Absolutely stunning and worth it to stay at a resort facing the mountain

The views of Mount Otemanu can be best experienced via a Land Rover (off road tour) that can be arranged by your hotel. Here you will see old WWII fortifications.

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.
