Overwater bungalows may not directly have their origins in Bora Bora but these days they are deeply associated with it.
As it was seen that this island paradise was ideally suited for their construction, almost all luxury resorts on Bora Bora have built overwater bungalows.
This adds up to nine resorts in total plus one more just off the nearby island of Taha’a which we have included here with our Bora Bora listings.
With Bora Bora being such an elite vacation destination you might imagine the overwater bungalows here would be some of the finest in the world and you would be correct - six of the resorts in Bora Bora which have overwater bungalows are indeed 5 star and the rest, though technically not 5 star still certainly come very close.
You might also imagine then that a stay here will be somewhat expensive and in that too you would be very correct.
Expensive then is sadly a given but a stay in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora is a once in a lifetime, exclusive experience, one that, unlike say in the Maldives which has hundreds of overwater bungalows, only a privileged few get to sample.
The vast majority of Bora Bora island's resorts are family friendly/child friendly though naturally, with it being a venue for romantic escapism, the vast majority of visitors are adults.
