At a time when you most crave seclusion, honeymooning accommodation doesn’t get more romantic than overwater bungalows. Pioneered by the Tahitians, these thatched-roof hideaways are perched above turquoise lagoon waters but have all the amenities of top-class hotel rooms.
Be at one with the natural beauty of Tahiti. Most overwater bungalows come equipped with ‘Tahitian Televisions’ – glass panels which can be lifted up to feed the fish below and private balconies and steps – so you can amble effortlessly from your room to warm water, or sunset views. And there’s no compromise on first-class service – you can even have your breakfast delivered to your bungalow by outrigger canoe.
Turquoise’s pick of the top five destinations with overwater bungalows, include the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort. Soak up amazing views of Mount Otemanu from your thatched Polynesian bolthole – and choose the Premium Overwater Bungalows for the very best location.
Alternatively there’s the St Regis Resort, also in Bora Bora. This celeb magnet of a resort has 72 one-bedroomed overwater villas. The premium class bungalows are the ultimate in decadence and come complete with deck-top Jacuzzis.
Another Bora Bora resort – the Four Seasons – opened in September 2008 and is the island’s newest jewel. A select number of the beautifully decorated overwater bungalows have plunge pools on the deck.
Le Taha’a Island Resort and Spa is one of French Polynesia’s most exclusive destinations. Each overwater suite has a large sundeck, kingsize bed and stunning views – the most exclusive and private are the three End of Pontoon Suites.
And finally Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort on the low-lying coral Tuamotu Islands has 24 overwater bungalows with direct access to the azure lagoon and pink-sand beaches.
