I thought it would be fun to show you some different overwater bungalows with glass floors, aka Tahitian TVs. These are all located in the islands of Tahiti in French Polynesia.
Le Tahaa Island Resort & Spa is a Relais and Chateau property and one of the finest in French Polynesia. It resides beside a white-sand beach on the lagoon side of the islet facing Tahaa, which is within site of Bora Bora.
Long after leaving Tahiti, the local greeting “Ia Orana” will play in your mind like a beckoning melody, pronounced “your ana”. The Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort is an all-bungalow resort set beside Moorea’s best beach in a coconut grove at the island’s northeast point, only a five-minute drive from the airport. This romantic overwater bungalow has a beautiful glass floor, where you’ll be sure to spending many hours admiring the fish.
On Motu Omee, a long flat islet off Bora Bora’s northeast coast, The St Regis Bora Bora Resort sets a new standard for the island’s luxurious accommodations when it opened with it’s all-bungalow resort. It’s the only resort in French Polynesia with swimming pools set in the decks of some bungalows already over the lagoon.
This Polynesian-style Moorea Pearl Resort resides in same the beachside coconut grove which once housed the famous Hotel Bali Hai. It’s located between Cook’s Bay and the Gulf of Moorea.
Le Méridien Bora Bora overlooks a powdery white beach, the lagoon and a seawater pond stocked with endangered sea turtles. The beach is one of Bora Bora’s best, and the snorkeling is excellent, with some of the world’s best coral gardens nearby. These overwater bungalows have what look to be the largest glass floors of any in Tahiti.
Sitting beside gorgeous Matira Beach, guests of the InterContinental Le Moana all-bungalow resort can spy Raiatea and Tahaa from Matira Beach on the southeastern corner of Bora Bora. The glass floors are under the coffee tables, which can be moved for unobstructed viewing of the fish.
Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa is one of Moorea’s most exotic and well-cared for properties. The well-appointed bungalows are identical except for location; garden, beach or overwater. The overwater bungalows have glass floor panels for viewing underwater flora and fauna, of course.
The Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa has more Polynesian charm than any other property on Bora Bora, with mats, bamboo and hand-painted tapa cloth providing more Polynesian flavor. Glass panels in the nightstands, bedroom floors and bath vanities provide spectacular views of the fish in the lagoon below.
This is one of my favorites in Tahiti; the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa and the pictures are of our recent romantic vacation there, so please excuse the amateur quality. It’s a superb all-suite resort and boasts some of the most spacious and luxurious guest quarters in French Polynesia (the overwater bungalows are the largest on Bora Bora). There are glass panels next to the large bath tub that opens and at the each end of the sofa. These can all be opened for impromptu fish feedings. There is also a glass panel on the patio.
I hope you enjoy imagining yourself on your honeymoon or celebrating a special anniversary at one of these amazing resorts admiring and feeding the fish.
