Bora Bora Bungalow Life

Nothing will make you feel more relaxed and “vacation-y” quite like your own tropical bungalow over the deep blue ocean. If you’re headed to Bora Bora, you definitely do not want to miss out on an experience like this.

Overwater bungalows are not hard to come by in French Polynesia. There are many hotels offering bungalow accommodations which range from quaint to top of the line luxury.

Autumn Aquarius Hotel Maitai Polynesia

For our stay on Bora Bora, we called the  Hotel Maitai Polynesia home for three nights. It is one of the more affordable places to stay (Bora Bora is crazy expensive!) so it lacks some extra amenities like a pool and fitness center, but those things are absolutely unnecessary. Especially in a beautiful place like Bora Bora where the ocean is your pool and fitness center.

The room was simple, clean, air-conditioned, and had just spacious enough for the two of us. The window directly across from the bed, the glass coffee table, and huge sliding glass door leading out to the lanai, provided ample views of the surrounding sea.

With a convenience store (Tiare Market), two local restaurants, and public beach all within walking distance, the location was great!

What I loved the most about Hotel Maitai Polynesia was the authentic Polynesian ambiance, and helpful staff. We felt genuinely welcomed, and everyone was very helpful in getting us where we needed to go.

I’m so happy we got to experience what it is like to stay in an overwater bungalow on the beautiful island of Bora Bora. Nothing beats jumping into the warm, inviting sea straight from your balcony as you wake up, or right before you go to bed! Now, when I stare at that generic, default island screen saver with the overwater bungalows on it, I will always think of our stay in Bora Bora.
