Overwater Bungalow in Bora Bora

Where is the best place to stay in an overwater bungalow?

The best place to stay in an overwater bungalow is the birthplace of overwater bungalows, Bora Bora.

Where is Bora Bora and how do you get there?

Bora Bora is one of the 118 Society Islands of French Polynesia in the South Pacific. Even though the islands are remote, they are quite easy to travel to. With daily non-stop flights from Los Angeles (an 8-hour flight), you can usually get to French Polynesia (Tahiti) with just 1 layover from anywhere in the US.

What will staying in an overwater bungalow be like?

You will be relaxed and rejuvenated in this uncrowded paradise while enjoying impeccable service and delicious fresh local cuisine. Abundant sunshine and warm breezes will greet you, while Mt. Otemanu rises out of the ocean. It is surrounded by an electric blue lagoon, sugar-sand beaches, colorful coral reefs, and several smaller islands, all for you to enjoy. This truly is the place travel dreams are made of!

What is the best itinerary for going to Bora Bora?

Hands down, if you are going to French Polynesia, you want to follow this itinerary to experience the best of the best.

Fly into Papeete, the capital of Tahiti. From there you will board a luxury cruise ship, Paul Gauguin Cruises (voted “World’s Best Small-Ship Cruise Line”) and take their signature cruise. You will spend 7 nights touring the Society Islands, including Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. Add 3 post-cruise nights staying in the overwater bungalows in Bora Bora.

You will be so relaxed and rejuvenated you might think your bones have left your body. To add a little excitement in, take a snorkeling tour with sharks and manta rays! Perfect for the crystal-clear waters in Bora Bora.
