The view from every room of our Diamond Otemanu overwater bungalow was fabulous, with a direct view of the mountain above the turquoise color water. The water around the bungalow is about chest high, and one can walk around and quite far (feels like a giant swimming pool, not in a bad sense). No fish and coral around unfortunately, which...

Our room was exquisitely designed. A lot of attention to detail. The housekeeping staff was attentive and friendly. The resort was designed with views and convenience in mind. We enjoyed the pool daily. The breakfast was superb. Pure relaxation.

My fiance and I traveled to Bora Bora for a destination elopement. We are very well-traveled and typically splurge on luxury (such as the Four Seasons), but opted for the Intercontinental simply because it seemed silly to spend almost twice as much...and the IC's reviews gave us confidence in this decision. We are so happy we did this! We ended... More

Probably one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. The intercontinental bora bora doesn't disappoint. Booking the hotel water shuttle isn't cheap but then again what is in Bora Bora?

Phenomenal Hotel. Amazing Services. Beautiful Views! Best View of Mt. Otemanu! I loved every aspect of the Hotel. Room service menu needs to have a little more options, but other than that. This was probably the best experience I have ever had.
