An Experience on Overwater Bungalows

Most overwater bungalows are built from wood. The wood provides an authentic décor and feel to the place. Glass is sometimes incorporated in certain areas to enhance the surrounding views and the overall atmosphere. One such example is using glass as floor for the outside patio thus giving guests a view of what’s directly under them. Le Meridien Bora Bora (External link) even places glass floors in the bedroom for a more unique view.
Others even use glass for the walls of the small swimming pools or bathtubs outside the bungalows as well.
Yes, a lot of modern overwater bungalows feature small swimming pools right outside such as the ones found in Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora (External link) . Taking a dip here is an experience on its own.

Getting in and out of the Bungalows

Most bungalows are connected to the island by long piers which allow guests to travel from their designated bungalow back to the island or the beach.
