July 24, 2018

Have you ever seen those beautiful island pictures with the gorgeous overwater cottages and wondered “Where in the world IS that? I’d love to visit there someday”.


Look no further! I am going to give you some of the top overwater bungalow locations and why you might want to choose these spots for your next exotic vacation.


Bora Bora

There are multiple places in Bora Bora that you can go to escape ‘the grind’ and grab yourself a vacation in an overwater bungalow, such as Le Meridien, Four Seasons, St Regis and Conrad Bora Bora Nui.  Depending on which location you choose, you will have different surroundings, but the view will always be spectacular with clear, blue water, thatched roof bungalows and white sandy beaches. You can hang out by the water or lay in your outdoor bed for a nap, but either will afford you a great view of the beautiful island!


There are several great choices when it comes to vacationing in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives.  There is Soneva Jani, Gili Lankanfushi, St Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort and Cocoa Island by COMO. From a shoeless vacation, to catamarans and nets in the ocean, cheese rooms and chocolate caves, to spas and prosecco – you will be lacking for nothing when it comes to pure relaxation and simple enjoyment in your own little piece of paradise.


At Vahine Island, you will enjoy beaches that look like sugar, underwater coral gardens and coconut groves.  There are only three overwater bungalows here so this is an escape that will make you feel as if it is just you and nature enjoying your time away.  


Another great option in Tahiti is InterContinental Tahiti Resort and Spa.  This island is the most accessible and just minutes away from the airport. If you are looking for a vacation that offers Polynesian charm and a tropical escape, this is definitely the vacation you are looking for!  


A third option on this beautiful island is Le Taha’a.  Here you will get authentic Polynesian style while being surrounded by bamboo and pandanus tree vegetation.  There are 45 overwater suites here, so lots of opportunity to plan a vacation away at this location. Don’t forget to take a five-minute boat ride to check out the black pearl farms!


If you’ve ever wanted to experience that simpler way of life, go take a vacation in Song Saa and see how life is much more relaxed and simplistic.  The people are more connected to each other and you will enjoy the sense of joy they get from the simple things in life. The food is like no other here!  Of course, don’t forget the amazing views of the Koh Rong archipelago that you will get to enjoy during your stay.


Go book yourself a vacation at Sandals South Coast or Sandals Royal Caribbean in beautiful and friendly Jamaica with Sandals’ overwater villas.  You can book any one of the 12 heart-shaped overwater suites. There is also the resort’s first overwater bar where you can grab a few drinks while you enjoy the sunshine!   You can swing in a hammock and enjoy a midday nap while you let the cares of your everyday life just flow away. This is a great place to enjoy yourself for a week, but be warned – you may never want to go back home! (Oh, and Sandals has a resort in St.Lucia with Overwater bungalows!) 


I hope this was helpful for you picking out your next exotic-style vacation in an overwater bungalow.  Any of these options would be a great choice, so you really can’t go wrong!
