Welcome to overwaterbungalows.net – the ultimate guide to every overwater bungalow and water villa resort in the world.
There are around 125 overwater resorts around the world, with more than 5,000 total overwater villas. About two-thirds of them are in the Maldives, but Bora Bora, Moorea, and Tahiti have some of the world’s best and most famous of these resorts, with the Caribbean also adding these luxury rooms.
Seen in movies, TV shows, commercials and music videos, Bora Bora is not only a beautiful South Pacific island surrounded by crystal clear ocean teeming with tropical fish, but an ideal location for those seeking an escape from ‘the real world’. In addition to beautiful white sand beaches, palm trees that sway effortlessly with the ocean breezes, healthy reefs with vibrant corals and colorful fish and the presence of friendly locals, guests will find a few great accommodation choices, including those housing the famed overwater villa.
If you’re looking for a private island experience at a small resort, you’ll fall in love with the Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island Resort that’s situated just across the water from the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort. Not only will you have access to both, but you’ll find yourself surrounded in luxury from the rooms, to the restaurants to the on-site spa. Another plus? Overwater villas here start out at only US$597 per night for two people.
A choice location plus a beautiful resort equals a vacation destination like none other. The luxurious Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa is one of your best options in the South Pacific with gorgeous views, raving reviews and top-notch activities. However wonderful the resort has been in past years, it’s now getting a makeover promising to make it even better than before. In fact, this makeover is a rather large one with a few million dollars of refurbishments and design alongside a brand new name. The Conrad Bora Bora Nui will open in March 2017 with a brand new look that promises to wow future guests.
Due to the construction, the resort will be closed from the 1st of September 2016 until its opening day in March 2017.
Serving as one of the world’s most famous and well known islands, Bora Bora attracts travelers from around the world and is often used as a back drop for movies and music videos. From white sand beaches to lush green mountains, from tropical fish to palm trees, this part of the South Pacific is essentially picture perfect. With so much to offer, it’s no surprise that several resorts have built a name for themselves here, with each one promising a vacation like no other.
Because of the variety of luxury resorts that call Bora Bora home, you may find it a bit difficult to choose the right one for you. If you’re looking for a 5-star resort that offers large rooms with both ocean and mountain views as well as the little extras, a spa, a restaurant and a romantic atmosphere, the InterContinental Bora Bora & Thalasso Spa may be the best resort for you. Here, you’ll find overwater villas starting at US$1,315 per night for two people.
There are many different things to consider when searching for your dream resort. First you’ll want to take a look at the resort itself and find out what is offered with each stay.

Are there dining options available throughout your stay that have good reviews from past guests? Then you’ll want to take a look at the room options available and depending on what you’re looking for, you’ll should find room choices that fit your dream.

When planning your overwater vacation, you’ll find that there are several different island locations to choose from. The most popular however, just may be the islands that make up the South Pacific. Here visitors will find tropical getaways that seem straight out of a movie with white sand beaches, clear waters teeming with fish and a Polynesia culture that is sure to impress. Unfortunately, many people think of the South Pacific as nothing more than a dream vacation, one that they feel they’ll never be able to afford. Luckily, that’s simply not the case. The islands of Bora Bora and Moorea welcome all with some overwater rooms not only catering to those looking for a luxury vacation, but those who seek one with an attainable price tag.
Below, we’ve put together a list of the 6 best cheap Bora Bora and Moorea overwater resorts that are all under the US$1,000 a night mark.

First introduced in the South Pacific only a few decades ago, the overwater bungalow is now one of the hottest trends in the resort world. Honeymoon couples have been staying in these iconic rooms since the beginning, but now they are popular with families and adventure travelers as well.
For many people, the South Pacific island of Bora Bora is the most famous destination for the best overwater bungalows, but it’s actually the Maldives, which is just southwest of India, where most of these huts-on-stilts exist. The Maldives has more than 80 resorts that feature water villas (as they are typically known there), with several new private-island resorts opening every year.
In the South Pacific you will find almost a dozen resorts on Bora Bora, another five on Moorea, and two on Tahiti that have over water villas. There are about 10 additional overwater resorts on other South Pacific islands stretching all the way to Fiji and New Caladonia.
There are also about a dozen overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean, mostly off the coast of Central America, with nearly all of them being diving-oriented “eco resorts.” But a few luxury overwater bungalows exist and more are being built on St. Lucia and other islands in the popular areas of the Caribbean, and this website will be the best place to look for information on all of them.
