Known for hosting fantastic honeymoon getaways, the island of Bora Bora, which resides in the South Pacific, is a top choice for any couple who can afford it. Many people describe it as the most beautiful island on earth, and when you throw in the luxury resorts with overwater bungalows, it's very difficult to top.

All in all, you'll find that there are about 20 hotels on Bora Bora, with over half of them featuring overwater bungalows that extend out and over their crystal clear lagoons. Because of the available options, it can take a lot of research to determine which is the very best for you and your loved one. Due to that, we've compiled the list found below to only feature the best overwater bungalow resorts that cater to the honeymoon crowd. Each of the resorts that are listed below not only emphasize privacy and romance but also offer great facilities and stunning locations.

Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa Bora Bora

  • Overwater bungalows: 48
  • Total rooms/suites: 60

 

Though it’s not technically located on the island of Bora Bora, the Le Taha’a Island Resort and Spa is very much worth the mention as many of its bungalows have views of the island of Bora Bora from just over the water. Each overwater suite here is 969 square feet, which is about three times the size of a city hotel room. In addition each room features a kingsize bed along with a separate sofa bed that can be found in the living room area, making it so there is certainly plenty of room to spread out.

 

This resort pleases with 5 restaurants and bars, along with a rather long list of activities and excursions, so there will be no shortage of things to do for those who like to stay very busy. What you should note, however, is that the more remote location of this resort does make it more challenging to engage in water sports and other activities on the island of Bora Bora itself. For this reason, it’s a top choice for honeymoon couples who are more interested in having privacy than partaking in any sports.

Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort

  • Overwater bungalows: 20
  • Total rooms/suites: 31

 

The internationally respected Sofitel chain operates not one, but two resorts on Bora Bora, which just so happen to be across a single lagoon from one another. The Private Island resort here is only accessible by a short (and free) boat ride so it’s definitely the more secluded and exclusive of the two.

 

With a small total of just 31 total rooms which include 20 overwater bungalows, the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Private Island Resort is small enough that the staff will give you as much, or as little attention, as you prefer. Over at the Marara Beach resort, across the lagoon, you’ll find facilities that guests at the Private Island can also use, so you get more options than you’d might expect from such an intimate hotel.

Le Méridien Bora Bora

  • Overwater bungalows: 85
  • Total rooms/suites: 99

 

Another resort that is part of a very large international French chain, the Le Meridien Bora Bora is a resort that is very popular among the honeymoon crowd. You’ll want to note when reserving, that this resort is only accessible via a boat. Because of this, you’ll find it has that exclusive feeling that guests are alone with their partner.

 

One of the exciting features of these overwater bungalows, is the large glass floor cutout in the bungalow. From this cutout, you’ll have viewing access of the lagoon below, without having to actually get into the water. You’ll also find that you can view the sea-life while resting on a couch, which is very conveniently and smartly placed. Due to a recent refurbishment, this resort is more modern than several with much higher room rates, so it’s something of a bargain.

Conrad Bora Bora Nui

  • Overwater bungalows: 85
  • Total rooms/suites: 120

 

The Conrad Bora Bora Nui Resort might be the most famous hotel in the South Pacific these days, and this may be in part because of its secluded location. Not only is it widely considered one of the finest hotels in the entire region, but it was also featured in a few episodes of The Kardashians show.

 

Because this resort only houses 120 guest rooms, you might imagine it to be a smaller resort, but the Conrad Bora Bora Nui is actually very large and spread out. Guests typically find their way around by golf cart or bicycle, and there are plenty of hidden areas where privacy is possible. In addition to all of that, this might be the nicest Hilton hotel in the world, as thought by many visitors.

 

  • Low season online specials from US$1,227 per night
  • High season online specials from US$2,163 per night

InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa

  • Overwater bungalows: 80
  • Total rooms/suites: 83

 

You’ll notice pretty quickly that the brand InterContinental operates two luxury resorts on Bora Bora, with the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa being the larger and newer of the pair. Attached to the resort you’ll find an amazing spa attached which is viable to guests at both resort. Guests will instantly note the size of each overwater bungalow as they are enormous with a large bathroom, so guests can pamper themselves all day without ever leaving the room.

 

When you watch the room-tour video on the bottom of the page, that’s linked above, you’ll see that these bungalows are quite a step up from the others higher on this list. At this resort, each overwater bungalow is just over 1,000 square feet. This square footage includes a private terrace and the best views available that come through a glass wall in front of the kingsize bed. The best views cost the most, of course, but even the most affordable bungalows are stunning.

 

  • Low season online specials from US$1,299 per night
  • High season online specials from US$2,038 per night

St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

  • Overwater bungalows: 77
  • Total rooms/suites: 91

 

The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is a pricey resort, but still one that beckons lots of visitors, at least the ones who can afford it. Sprawling on 44 private acres, this is another resort that is easily large enough that each guest feels like they have a lot of it to themselves.

 

The most affordable class of overwater bungalows at this particular resort is over 1,500 square feet, which makes them larger than almost every other overwater bungalow in the South Pacific. The larger classes however, are twice as large and are built around their own private pool.

  • High season online specials from US$2,132 per night

Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

  • Overwater bungalows: 100
  • Total rooms/suites: 121

 

If you have heard of the Four Seasons brand, then you’ll already know what to expect. This resort proudly features  100 overwater suites that range from large to simply unbelievable. The most modest among them is 100 square meters (1,080 square feet) of pure luxury.

    1. Abd,

      We are simply an online guide to overwater resorts and we don’t do bookings. We do have booking links for every resort on the site, so booking online is usually your best bet. Best of luck with this. -Roger
