French Polynesia hotels

Any traveler's scrapbook from French Polynesia will inevitably include a photo of an overwater bungalow, or OWB: a traditional thatched hut (or fare) set on stilts over a shallow lagoon. Private OWBs are offered—at a hefty price—at most premium resorts in the islands. The development boom on Bora Bora has quieted with the opening of the newest, and hopefully last, mega-resort here: The Four Seasons Bora Bora, opening in Summer 2008.


If you're on a budget, finding lodging in French Polynesia can be challenging. Your best bets will be family-run properties just outside the most popular tourist areas. A good resource is the Federation Haere Mai, an association of smaller properties throughout the islands. Value conscious travelers should also avoid private island resorts where dining choices are limited to the hotel's pricey venues.
