The South Pacific is a dream come true for most vacation seekers. It's also heavily portrayed in movies, TV shows, and music videos. It used to be that only honeymooners and other romantic couples sought out this island paradise, but in today's world, more and more families are choosing the South Pacific for family adventure.
Even with this increase in family vacations, there are still quite a lot of overwater resorts that choose not to cater to families, especially those traveling with 2 or more children. On the other hand, there are a few resorts that happily invite families with children to stay in their overwater rooms. These resorts are spread out across the South Pacific and can be found on both Bora Bora and Moorea.
There are 4 of us that would like to depart Seattle and get to Sunshine in January. We were thinking Bora Bora but are wide open. I was wondering if there are any water bungalows that accommodate 4 people but are still affordable?
Most of the Bora Bora resort hotels allow 3 guests per room, but I’ve only heard about a couple that allow 4, and those are the super expensive ones that go for close to US$2,000 per night.
The option that might work are the so-called Brando overwater bungalows, which are privately run and not part of a resort. A couple of them have two bedrooms and they are actually more reasonably priced. Good luck! -Roger
Hi, there is 5 of us wanting to stay closest to Jacksonville Florida (Mom not doing well). That has the bungalows over the water, but HAS to be clear water? Can you help me? I am a disabled vet, and they wanted to do this for me. Thank you, Lisa🌞
The closest real overwater bungalows to Florida are in Jamaica at two different Sandals resorts, but the water isn’t turquoise like it is in Bora Bora and the Maldives. Unfortunately Florida is pretty much half a world away from the ones with clear water. The closest are probably in Tahiti, but if you go there you might as well go to Moorea, which is right next door. -Roger
