Welcome to overwaterbungalows.net – the ultimate guide to every overwater bungalow and water villa resort in the world.
There are around 165 overwater resorts around the world as of early 2017, with more than 8,000 total overwater villas. About two-thirds of them are in the Maldives, but Bora Bora, Moorea, and Tahiti have some of the world's best and most famous of these resorts, with the Caribbean also adding these luxury rooms.
If you've always been dreaming of a Fijian vacation but but have found yourself disappointed in the lack of fully over the water rooms, it's now time to rejoice! The newly opened Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay not only features beautiful land rooms with lagoon views, but 22 overwater rooms as well, making the room number total at 250. Even better? Rooms are available for booking right now, meaning that you won't have to wait for an update to book your upcoming vacation.
Each of the 22 overwater villas available impress with several luxury features and amenities that range from a 32 inch TV set up complete with both cable and premium movie channels to a balcony that allows you to enjoy a water view anytime of the day and night. You'll also find that each room comes with an air conditioner, a free standing bath, a desk and a sitting area complete with both a sofa and an oversized chair. Though you can easily make a cup of coffee in the morning at your own personal coffee and tea making area, each night's stay comes with breakfast, giving you the option to leave your room if you wish.
While there are overwater bungalow resorts all over the South Pacific, there are exactly 3 such resorts in Fiji itself as of now. These 3 resorts vary from one to the next, allowing guests a few choices. Of these, 2 offer rooms around the US$500 a night range while the third is suited more for those 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, and fortunately 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 most of the others. [read more]

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.
