most people think of the South Pacific or French Polynesia the name “Tahiti” immediately springs to mind. While it is the most populated island by quite a bit, Tahiti isn't nearly as secluded or even exotic as many other smaller islands in the region. Moorea, for example, is a short ferry ride away, and it's smaller and more beautiful as well.
The main thing that Tahiti has going for it is that every flight into or out of French Polynesia goes through the main Tahiti airport, so it's a tranfer point for every guest, regardless of whether you are staying on the island or not. Also, the flights tend to arrive at odd hours, so some guests are more or less forced to stay on Tahiti on their first or last night.

Fortunately, there are two overwater bungalow resorts on Tahiti itself, and both are quite close to the airport, and both are moderately priced. And as mentioned, you can take a ferry to Moorea if you are already in Tahiti, or a very short flight if you are just changing planes on the same day. And there are 4 excellent overwater bungalow resorts there, plus a more basic resort that claims to have invented the concept and still has amazing views.
We are looking for an overwater bungalow for 4 people in late June 2019 for one week. We are looking for something in the Caribbean or Fiji areas. Do you have anything that will meet our needs? Thank you!
Most overwater resorts only allow 3 people per room, but there are a few that allow 4. I think your best bet is to check the different overwater bungalows in the Caribbean and see if you can find one you like that allows 4 guests per room. -Roger
Would like to stay there in 2020. What are rates between Feb 2020 and October 2020 and name of nearest airport? Thanks
Hotels don’t typically set rates more than 11 months in advance, but they shouldn’t change much from the same months in 2019. The nearest airport is Fa’a’? International Airport, which has frequent nonstop flights from LAX and is only a few miles from the resort itself. -Roger
