"The overwater bungalow is a form of, mainly high end, tourist accommodation inspired by the traditional stilt houses of South Asia and the Pacific." Wikipedia

More than 50 years ago on the island of Raiatea, Tahiti, the first overwater holiday resort was created. Inspired by the design of traditional Polynesian fishing huts, these simple stilted structures won the hearts of travellers and soon achieved iconic status.

Today, the overwater accommodation experience is a growing obsession worldwide:

 

“…it’s hard to resist the allure of luxurious overwater bungalows. Everything about these floating
accommodations screams off-the-grid and romantic, a true once-in-a-lifetime bucket list
experience.” Trips to Discover

When it comes to island getaways, nothing takes things up a notch like an overwater bungalow.
Secluded, romantic, and endlessly luxurious…CNTraveller

 

So, why all the hype? Is it worth splashing out more for an overwater bungalow? Here we share just 5 reasons why it’s such a desirable option… and a choice to consider when you make your booking.


1. Stepping directly into the sea

“Fancy a vacation in paradise where you can dive from your room into the deep blue ocean…?”  Once in a Lifetime Journey

Every tropical dream holiday starts with stepping into a crystal-clear lagoon in luxurious privacy,
ideally from your own space! Cue the coconut tree and the turtle...

 


2. Your own private verandah & sundeck

“An overwater bungalow is the ultimate vacation if you are looking for relaxation and privacy, all
with an amazing view. You don’t even have to leave your “hotel room” for a tan!”  Married with Wanderlust

It’s like having your own private resort!  Most overwater bungalows include both indoor
accommodation and an outdoor space that’s gloriously open to the waters and the skies. 

 

 


3. Panoramic views on another level

“In the last half-century the overwater bungalow has gone from simple to over-the-top opulent in
some cases,  Panoramic views of the countless shades of blue outside are a requisite element.” Architectural Digest

Surrounded by sea, you’re in prime position to catch those gobsmacking sunsets and sunrises –
and, in-between, the idyllically relaxing infinity of the horizon. 


“Who can resist the allure of an overwater bungalow? Everything about it spells romantic, off-
the-grid seclusion, from the thatched roofs and wrap-around terraces to spellbinding views of
the azure waters.“ Jetsetter



4. Seclusion

“An overwater bungalow combines luxury and seclusion like no other accommodation.” Honeymoon Goals

Thanks to its design and location, an overwater bungalow allows you to experience supreme seclusion – your closest neighbours being the gently lapping waves and the occasional ribbon tail ray, if you’re lucky!

 

5. Design

When you imagine a tropical vacation, what comes to mind? For us, it’s an overwater
bungalow, a thing of beauty from both a design and scenic perspective.Brides

Overwater bungalows have come a long way from the rustic huts that inspired them. Both the exterior and interior have evolved, often incorporating a sophisticated design aesthetic guaranteed to please the eye and soothe the soul. Think atmospheric copper bathtubs, and walls adorned with uplifting art.
