An overwater bungalow, overwater suite, or a floating bure – the concept has many different names, but it remains the same.
An independent, detached building with one guest room inside, standing on stilts in the water, an overwater bungalow is the epitome of luxury and relaxation. It’s where you can truly immerse yourself in the seascape and the mesmerising surroundings.
You can find this type of unique island accommodation all over the South Pacific, with the most popular destinations including the Maldives, French Polynesia, Fiji, and Vanuatu. Also, you can see overwater bungalows in Southeast Asia, Mauritius, and the Caribbean.
The reason overwater bungalows are incredibly popular and worth the higher price tag is that they offer an incredibly unique experience. With unmatched views and luxurious amenities, the villas are a private paradise.
