Overland bungalows, also called water villas, are thatched-roof huts which are located near the shore and sit just above the water on platforms held up by sturdy pillars. This website has links to most of the overwater bungalows and water villas in the world, including Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea, the South Pacific, and Maldives.

A full list of overwater bungalows, or beach villas as they are also called, can be found here, and reviews of every property as well as a list of amenities, special room features, and nearby restaurants and bars.

There are also links for information about airfare deals as well as online specials to the overwater resorts.
