Overwater bungalow honeymoon: Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa

This is the second part in a series highlighting some of my favorite recommendations for couples dreaming of a romantic honeymoon in an overwater bungalow. The InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa previously was highlighted on the Smitten blog, with even more overwater bungalow goodness coming your way soon!

Sixty percent of the nearly 9,000 overwater bungalows in the world can be found in the Maldives, but the iconic accommodation originated in Tahiti in the late 1960s. Today, honeymooning in an overwater bungalow remains a quintessential experience for any couple traveling to the French Polynesia, especially if their honeymoon includes a stop in Bora Bora or the lesser known (but equally fabulous) island of Taha’a.

Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa is a worthy consideration for couples with honeymoon dreams that include the French Polynesia.
