If you don’t think those over-water bungalows look cool, then maybe Bora Bora isn’t for you but I think you would hard pressed to find anything else around the world that is as relaxing as this! I can just imagine laying in bed in one of these villas listening to the waves surrounding you and then being able to walk out of your bedroom door and dive into the ocean – pretty cool right!
