Sexiest Overwater Bungalows in Tahiti (Part 2)

The first overwater bungalows date back to the 1960s as stilted homes. Who could guess that half a century later, these villas would become synonymous with romance and luxury? Tahiti (French Polynesia) is home to nearly 900 overwater villas disseminated across the 118 islands. The most jaw-droppingly sumptuous suites include state-of-the-art technology and sleek furnishings that bring a five-star hotel element to remote reaches of French Polynesia. Each atoll, motu, and island is distinct, but they have a commonality: the sun, the sea, and those stunning overwater bungalows. Here are the sexiest overwater villas in Tahiti.

Once you land in Bora Bora, you will hop in a speedboat and sail off to the private island, which is precisely as romantic as it sounds. The resort lies near a coral garden abounding with angelfish, ensuring that Sofitel has the best snorkeling in Tahiti. It feels like secluded, unspoiled paradise minutes from Bora Bora. Fall in love all over again as you watch the sunset from the deck of your Overwater Bungalow.

While only an hour outside the Island of Tahiti, Hotel Kia Ora offers something novel and romantic. The Rangiroa atoll will give you an authentic Tahitian experience. The island's colossal lagoon (the Island of Tahiti can fit inside the lagoon) will make you feel shipwrecked at "The Blue Lagoon." At Kia Ora, the overwater bungalows feature a large sundeck and a swim platform providing quick access to the lagoon.

Pool Overwater Villa

When choosing between Intercontinental 84 overwater bungalows, the primary choice is which view do you want. Are you a lagoon, beach, or mountain couple? You can find them all at Intercontinental; then, you will soak up the views from your private plunge pool. The thalassotherapy center, which is the first seawater therapy spa in Tahiti, weaves nutrients extricated from the depths of the South Pacific.

Suppose you could magically merge five-star luxury with genuine Polynesian architecture and a fantastic turquoise lagoon. In that case, you end up with one of my favorite spots worldwide, Le Taha'a. I am always amazed at how the resort can blend so effortlessly into its surroundings. Le Taha'a is genuinely a fantastic place to enjoy an overwater bungalow. Do you dream of jumping off your deck into the Pacific Ocean? If yes, an end-of-pontoon cottage is perfect for you. Bonus they are the most secluded villas in the resort.

Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea lies on the edge of a brilliant lagoon with a view to the island of Tahiti. A tropical paradise of dense green rain forests, enchanting lagoons, and awe-inspiring mountains. Moorea is the perfect island with a wide variety of exciting activities on hand. If you get tired of pure relaxation, you can dive, sail, wander through the pineapple fields, or try the local Polynesian cuisine.

Does Bora Bora call you? Some honeymooners dream of jetting off to the most romantic island in the world, and nothing else will make them happy. If Bora Bora is the only destination that will please you, but your budget is small, look toward the Le Bora Bora by Pearl. It sits across the lagoon from the main island, and it offers relatively inexpensive overwater options. The end-of-pontoon suites with a pool are a whopping 1832 sq ft. So you have lots of space to stretch out.

Nestled on a private white sand beach, on one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, Sofitel Marara elegantly blends undressed wood with contemporary style. Perfect for twosomes, the overwater bungalows boast all the requirements for a perfect romantic getaway. The villas offer direct lagoon access and plenty of nearby mainland adventures.

Tahiti has jaw-dropping suites perched over lovely lagoons and tucked away under thatched roofs. They may look quaint, but the villas can be luxurious with state-of-the-art technology and a super-sleek design aesthetic. This blog is part 2 of my 2 part series on the sexiest overwater bungalows in Tahiti.
