we are kicking off a new feature on overwaterbungalows.net – the overwaterbungalow of the week. With around 110 water bungalow and water villa resorts around the world it seems like a good idea to highlight one of them each week because no one can keep track of them all.

Some of us can only daydream about staying in one of these incredible rooms because they do cost a lot, so this is a way to live vicariously and think about when we'll be staying in these places ourselves.

This week: InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa

The island of Moorea, as you may know, is just northwest of Tahiti itself so it’s the easiest to reach since it’s connected by 5-minute flights and 30-minute ferry journeys.


Getting to Moorea is simple enough, and there you’ll find 4 luxurious overwater bungalow resorts, along with a simple and cheap resort that started the whole craze.


The InterContinental Moorea Resort is actually the largest resort with overwater rooms in all of the South Pacific, with 144 total rooms, 50 of which are on stilts in their calm lagoon

Room rates

Currently overwater bungalows at the InterContinental Moorea Resort are available starting at US$719 per night, or a bit more including the buffet breakfast. Keep in mind that on Moorea, unlike some other islands, you are close to other restaurants and activities, which can keep costs down a bit and add a bit more variety.

  1. Im looking for an over water bungalow for 12 people (include 3 children). This is a family travelling for a milestone birthday in May 2020. Looking to stay for 6-10 days.

    1. Mildred,

      Unfortunately, there are no overwater bungalows that allow more than 6 people, and even those are extremely expensive. Most normal overwater bungalows allow 3 guests per room and a few of them allow 4 guests per room. So your cheapest option would be to find one of the places that allows 4 guests per room and book 3 separate bungalows. Sorry it’s not better news. -Roger
