Bora Bora: What can an overwater bungalow offer you?

The main idea behind any travel is to go to places that you have never visited before and get away from your everyday troubles. It is a perfect opportunity for you to see the things that you have never seen and new people and cultures. The best case scenario, for those who enjoy traveling, every holiday represents a new experience and with it opens a new world full of wonders and possibilities. One thing you can do to make your travels as fun as possible is to try and make a plan which would allow you to experience as much local culture of the place that you are visiting.


A tropical paradise

When visiting French Polynesia be sure to stay in one of the overwater bungalows. It is almost unique for this part of the world since on the entire planet there are only around 90 places on which they exist. Since the Caribbean climate, with its tornados and hurricanes is not the perfect environment for this kind of housing and touristic solution, your list of places with the overwater bungalows is quite limited. My best suggestion for you would be, speaking from personal experience, to visit Bora Bora, or one of the perfect tropical Tahiti resorts.

Why are overwater bungalows better than a hotel?

Well, the answer to this one is quite simple. Staying in a hotel in a way diminishes your experience of uniqueness of the local culture. For example, staying in the Ritz hotel in New York is barely different than staying in the Ritz in Berlin or Paris. With the same system of entertainment, universal, globalised menu you will barely have the feeling of being in a place that is completely different from where you are from. The stay at the overwater bungalow enables you to experience all the charms of your surroundings and be in direct contact with the sea, the wind and the beach. Staying in a place like this helps you feel what it is like to be a part of a different culture and a different way of living.

What can an overwater bungalow offer you


The ancient Roman proverb states, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” and these words contain much wisdom. If you stayed in the Alps, you would probably stay in a nice cozy little mountain house then what way to learn about Tahiti than stay in an overwater bungalow. It will certainly be a unique experience. The bungalows have just a perfect view. One side looks on the ocean and the other to the beach. Some of the latest models even have a glass pane in the floor, in order for you to be able to observe the ocean wildlife, undisturbed from your room. The locations are usually remote from the crowd thus making it perfect for a honeymoon or a holiday with your significant other. Spa resorts on the island are usually built in the vicinity of these bungalows in order to provide to you the vacation of your dreams.

What better way to spend your holiday than spend it in an authentic overwater bungalow right between a perfect sandy beach and a flawlessly clear ocean, with a clear sky and stars above you? It is a real tropical paradise, and no matter how much I tried there are no adjectives that strong, to describe how beautiful it really is. Everyone should visit it at least once, and they will carry that memory in them for as long as they live.
