G’day everyone, it’s Corinne and Jill here. We have so many clients contact us about overwater bungalows. Many of our honeymooners and anniversary travelers want that special experience. But there are so many choices, how do you pick the right one. Well, as experts in the South Pacific, we can tell you that they are not all the same and some may not be truly overwater. Some properties call their bungalows overwater when in fact, they only have two stilts in the water and two on land.
So we thought we would put together our favorites and tell you what makes them special.
