Close your eyes and imagine paradise… what do you see?
We envision staying in an overwater bungalow perched above a lagoon, where there are white sand beaches, palm trees, unparalleled views of Mother Nature, and turquoise-blue waters stretching as far as the eye can see.
Anytime you show someone an image of an overwater bungalow, whether in Bora Bora, the Maldives or the South Pacific, it seems they suddenly have new priorities, or a new found goal in life: to one day be able to experience the ecstasy for themselves.
For these are places where you’ll feel like you’ve truly escaped the routines of reality—the crazy pace of everyday life. Where you can actually breathe a sigh of relief, as your body, mind and soul are afforded a brief respite. Huge wraparound decks, private infinity pools, and glass-paneled floors ensure you never have to go too far to reach the water.
There’s no vacation quite like staying in an overwater bungalow. It’s kind of a once-in-a-lifetime sort of thing.

Afterwards, you might want to scrimp and save, so that you may one day get the opportunity to discover what paradise truly is like.
