Everybody loves photographs of overwater bungalows, especially the aerial shots that show all the rooms lined up over the turquoise lagoon, but obviously those don't really tell you much about what it's like to stay in these glorious hotel rooms.
The good news is that many guests are so thrilled with their bungalow that they've recorded guided video tours of them. There are 9 overwater bungalow resorts on Bora Bora itself, and I've collected the best video for each of them and put them below.
In a couple of cases the best video (by far) has Spanish-language narration, but I feel that gives it an even more exotic vibe. One thing you'll learn from these videos is that ALL of these resorts are fabulous, so don't assume you need to stay at the 5-star deluxe ones to have an epic vacation of a lifetime.
I will only be on Bora Bora for a short time. How reliable are the boats from the resorts back to the cruise port?
Generally the boats in Bora Bora are reliable and it’s extremely rare to have weather issues, but I haven’t taken one to the cruise port so I may not be the best person to answer this. Best of luck. -Roger
I am looking into a trip to Tahiti.
Our good friend is getting married on July 17 on Mo’orea.
We would like to go from July 10 or 11 – July 25.
Preferably, we would like an over the water bungalow, but potentially would like to island hop.
Are there any packages have some sort of deal?
