While there are overwater bungalow resorts scattered all throughout the South Pacific, Fiji is home to only 3, at least for the moment. What is nice about these 3 choices, is that they do vary a lot from each other, which allows guests a few options. Out of these, 2 offer rooms around the US$500 a night range while the third is geared toward travelers that adventure with a larger budget.

If you are looking for something other than the three listed below, you'll be able to go to one of the other islands in the South Pacific, where you'll have around 30 different resorts to choose from if you can make it to Bora Bora or elsewhere in French Polynesia. There are a few closer resorts in Samoa and New Caledonia as well, though those are less ideal than the others.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort in Fiji

  • Overwater bungalows: 10
  • Total rooms/suites: 45


On a small island that’s located 25km (16 miles) from Nadi International Airport in the Mamanuca archipelago, the Likuliku Lagoon Resort presents 10 overwater bungalows, which they call “Over water bures” alongside 35 beach rooms. This is a serious 5-star resort in every single way, with some of the most luxurious accommodations that are currently offered in the South Pacific. The over water bures here are also among the most expensive in the area, so it’s not for those who travel on a small budget.


The spa here is one of the finest in the region, with a location that rests up on a hill  offering views that overlook the lagoon. Those interested in Polynesian culture will be very welcome here, as this luxury resort carries that theme throughout.

  1. The limiting factor with these resorts is that children must be under the age of 15. We stayed at the Thalasso with our 11 and 14 year old in March of 2018. We tried to rebook for March of 2019 and was told that the property would not accommodate our (by then) 15 year old. Very frustrating!
