Bora Bora is synonymous with overwater bungalows. While this form of luxury thatched accommodation may have its origins in another French Polynesian island (Moorea), Bora Bora has really elevated this unique style of stay with numerous resorts offering the indulgent experience of viewing the lagoon from a glass floor and having your breakfast delivered daily by outrigger canoe.
Wandering out of your room and dipping your toes into the Pacific Ocean is one of the most amazing experiences there is. Most of the overwater bungalows in Bora Bora are situated on what it considered to be the most beautiful beach, Matira Point, which is located on the southern tip of the island.
If you would prefer to survey your water views from a distance, there are also a number of family-run pensions, eco bungalows, mid-range resorts and luxury rentals as well as hotels and resorts on smaller neighbouring islands and islets such as To’opua, to the west of Bora Bora, Tevairoa to the north and Motu Piti A’au to the east.
