The view was majestic with clouds hanging over the top of the mountains. The mountain view at sunrise was spectacular.

this mountain makes such a gorgeous backdrop - you can see it pretty much anywhere and looks like a place they could have filmed Jurassic park!

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.

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.
