Once you start planning your overwater bungalow vacation, you'll find out pretty quickly that there are several different island locations to choose from. The most popular though, may just be the islands that make up the whole of the South Pacific. In this region, visitors will not lonely find tropical getaways that seem like they are straight out of a movie with white sand beaches and clear waters teeming with fish but a Polynesian culture that is sure to impress.

Unfortunately, many people tend to think of the South Pacific as just a dream vacation, feeling that they'll never be able to afford a visit. However, that's not the case. The wonderful islands of Bora Bora and Moorea welcome those with lower budgets (along with those who have very deep pockets) 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. These resorts, even though they are low in price, are still grand in design and offer spacious rooms that come with stunning island and/or ocean views. These resorts also offer a nicely built list of activities and dining options and great reviews that detail not only the beauty of each resort, but their attention to detail and their pride in offering a vacation worth a thousand memories. It's true that the Bora Bora cost tends to be higher than most other destinations you'll look at, but there is nowhere else on earth quite like it.
