Overwater bungalows in Fiji
Fiji is certainly one of the most famous islands in the South Pacific, and the name alone brings up images of thatched-roof huts in a perfect warm climate. Many people wonder if there are any overwater bungalows on Fiji, like the more famous ones on Bora Bora, Moorea, and Tahiti, and the answer is yes, but perhaps bad news is that it’s also one of the most expensive overwater bungalow resorts in the South Pacific.
The other interesting thing about Fiji is that it’s much more remote if you are coming from North America (or closer if you are coming from Australia or New Zealand), so it tends to draw visitors from some areas more than others. On the other hand, you can actually fly nonstop from Los Angeles to Fiji in about 10 hours, which is faster than cheaper compared to any other overwater bungalows except those on Tahiti itself.
Overwater bungalows in the South Pacific
If you are coming from North America or even from Europe you should know that most flights connect from Los Angeles through Tahiti, and then carry on to smaller islands like Bora Bora and Moorea in prop aircraft. There are 10 overwater bungalow resorts in Bora Bora, and 5 resorts with bungalows in Moorea, so honeymoon couples and most other visitors normally go there instead.
Fiji is further away, and only convenient for those from New Zealand or Australia. There are some other resorts with overwater bungalows on other islands in the South Pacific as well. If you are in Asia then you might instead look into the overwater bungalows in the Maldives, which features about 75 resorts ranging from cheaper all-inclusive family resorts to boutique romance resorts that are among the finest in the world.
