We found hotels with a view of Mount Otemanu are much more expensive. It wasn’t a deal-breaker for us that this hotel doesn’t have a view of the mountain as we got to see it many times during the tours and activities we booked on the island.
You will also get to enjoy amazing views of the mountain while on the ferry from Bora Bora airport to Hotel Maitai. To get to Hotel Maitai from the airport is only a short ferry ride (around 10km distance), so you get to relax in this paradise sooner.
The resort has a gorgeous private beach with a stunning pier. It’s also only a short walk away from the stunning and famous Matira Beach.
There are two restaurants on-site. While dining, couples can sink their feet into the powdery beach sand while taking in the unbeatable ocean views of Bora Bora.
Hotel Maitai offers guests free use of fishing, snorkeling, and kayaking equipment.
The hotel is situated close to a supermarket for convenient shopping if needed.
There are some corals just meters into the ocean with colored fishes to admire while snorkeling.
Every part of this resort is picturesque, which makes it the perfect spot for a romantic photoshoot with your partner. We recommend Bora Bora photographer Stephan Duplan for a fun, relaxed and professional couple photoshoot in Bora Bora Bora.
Fulfilling your dream of staying in an overwater bungalow is worth every penny! Nothing beats that feeling of being able to jump into the most beautiful coloured ocean water straight from your room whenever you feel like it. There’s no place like Bora Bora – I will forever remember our time there and can’t recommend it enough to romantic travelers.
Here’s a video we made where we take you on a tour of our overwater bungalow at the Maitai Polynesia:
