Through the glass floor in your overwater bungalow, admire your downstairs neighbors : the thousands of fish that live happily in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons.
Located directly on the beach, facing the lagoon and its many shades of blue, sheltered by the legendary "aito," Polynesia's ironwood trees, and by the coconut trees that softly rustle in the marine breeze, our beach bungalows play the exotic card with their indoor/outdoor bathrooms overlooking a small garden.
Built on the "hoa", a shallow gash in the coral crown of the atoll, through which the ocean feeds the lagoon, the overwater bungalows are located on the first pontoon and feature a glass table to enjoy the incredible underwater life.
At the far end of the pontoon for maximum intimacy, our premium bungalows feature glass tables, and a direct access to the crystal-clear lagoon.
Located a little further away, on the second pontoon, the overwater suites overlook the calm and clear water of the sandy-bottomed lagoon. First row at the ever-grandiose spectacle of the Polynesian sunset or sunrise, these large suites offer refined luxury and many amenities, such as air conditioning and large bathtubs, for your complete pleasure on your Tikehau vacation.
