When planning your overwater vacation, you’ll find that there are several different island locations to choose from. The most popular however, just may be the islands that make up the South Pacific. Here visitors will find tropical getaways that seem straight out of a movie with white sand beaches, clear waters teeming with fish and a Polynesia culture that is sure to impress. Unfortunately, many people think of the South Pacific as nothing more than a dream vacation, one that they feel they’ll never be able to afford. Luckily, that’s simply not the case. The islands of Bora Bora and Moorea welcome all 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, though low in price, are grand in design with spacious rooms with stunning island and/or ocean views, 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.
A stunning island found in the depths of the South Pacific, the tropical paradise of Moorea is just that, a paradise for many travelers from around the world. Here guests will find several great accommodation options, including a few top of their class overwater resorts, water sports, activities and luxurious spas that cater to both men and women.
If you’re dreaming of visiting one of Moorea’s overwater resorts but rather not spend a rather large amount of money each and every day of your stay because of high season rates, then you’ll want to take a good look at the Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa. With premium overwater villas starting out at only US$470 per night for two people, it’s hard to go wrong.
A beautiful island country filled with beautiful resorts and coral reefs, the Maldives beckons visitors from around the world who seek an island escape in the middle of nowhere. Because of all that the Maldives offer its guests, the resort prices can be a bit high for some, making the dream of staying in an overwater villa more of a dream than anything else. However, there are resorts that cater to those with tighter budgets by offering luxury over the water rooms under the US$1,000 a night mark.
One of these such resorts is the Hurawalhi Island Resort. Here you’ll find all that you could ever need along with lots of great extras, making this resort a fantastic choice for honeymooning couples. Because of its adult only status, you won’t run the risk of running into family groups during your stay. Rooms here start off at only US$682 a night for two people with breakfast included.
One of the most popular tropical destinations in the world, Tahiti is a South Pacific island paradise that welcomes visitors from around the globe. Here guests will find beauty in both the land and sea, making for a spectacular experience worth a thousand memories. Guests will also find a nice selection of attractive luxury resorts designed to cater to your every need while providing you with views of a lifetime.
If you’re looking for an overwater villa experience that offers direct lagoon access and a large amount of ways to enjoy the ocean, you’ll want to take a good hard look at the luxury 4-star Le Meridien Tahiti Resort. Here you’ll find pretty much everything you could ask for, alongside special extras that will make it hard to leave. Even better, nightly rates here start off at only US$303 per night for two people.
First introduced in the South Pacific only a few decades ago, the overwater bungalow is now one of the hottest trends in the resort world. Honeymoon couples have been staying in these iconic rooms since the beginning, but now they are popular with families and adventure travelers as well.
For many people, the South Pacific island of Bora Bora is the most famous destination for the best overwater bungalows, but it’s actually the Maldives, which is just southwest of India, where most of these huts-on-stilts exist. The Maldives has more than 90 resorts that feature water villas (as they are typically known there), with several new private-island resorts opening every year.
In the South Pacific you will find almost a dozen resorts on Bora Bora, another five on Moorea, and two on Tahiti that have over water villas. There are about 10 additional overwater resorts on other South Pacific islands stretching all the way to Fiji and New Caladonia.
There are also about a dozen overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean, mostly off the coast of Central America, with nearly all of them being diving-oriented “eco resorts.” But a few luxury overwater bungalows exist and more are being built on St. Lucia and other islands in the popular areas of the Caribbean, and this website will be the best place to look for information on all of them.
