Saw this mountain from our spot in the pearl hotel, waking up to that every morning made the trip worth it. Definitely pay for the mountain view at the pearl.

Saw this on a jeep tour, it was beautiful. Great views of island. Volcanic rock, no one can climb to the top because of the terrain. I would recommend going on the off road jeep tour.

We were staying in an overwater bungalow which looked out on this dormant volcano. The view really is stunning. Especially on a clear day. If you are staying at the Intercontinental Thalasso Resort I would request a room that faces out on this mountain. It's simply stunning 💕

From our most vantage point within the hotel you have this amazing view of the mountain you can also visit the main island via boat transfer and get a closer look.

Gorgeous views of the mountain while enjoying happy hour drinks at the Intercontinental Thallasso! We were staying at the Le Moana, but came over for a visit, which I highly recommend!

Loved our tour and got a great view. We also stopped and saw ancient temples and a distillery that made pineapple champagne

I spent 5 nights at the St Regis with a lagoon view and 2 nights at the Sofitel Private Island with a Mt Otemanu view. I would definitely pay extra for the Mt Otemanu view next time I'm in Bora Bora.

Just a short update to my reviews of our trip to Bora Bora last October. I can barely believe it but we are going back this October already for our 31st wedding anniversary. As I have mentioned, I have traveled the world with the exception of Africa. Yet I was entranced by Tahiti. We couldn't wait to go back to... More

We drove around the island and saw this mountain for all sides. It is what you think of when you think of bora bora. I don't think anyone has set foot on the top = unless by helicopter. Such a great backdrop for your Bora Bora pictures
