The Best Overwater Bungalows In Bora Bora And Moorea, Tahiti (PHOTOS)

It's no secret that Bora Bora is famous for its luxury resorts perched over the famous turquoise lagoon. It is also famous for the sun, the underwater life, the above water life, the romantic atmosphere, the pleasant climate, the local artisans, the seafood, the pearls, the outrigger canoes and for being, more or less, paradise.

If bungalows are the symbol of the luxury travel industry, and we'd say that they are, then they also present something of a challenge for visitors to the South Pacific: The look the same but offer varying value. We've compiled our favorites here, perfect for a romantic getaway, dream honeymoon or over-the-top vacation.

Pick your dream destination, and take a dip in the iridescent waters for yourself.
