#TAHITI Tourisme is celebrating 50 years of overwater bungalows, the striking over-the-water accommodation that helped put the #Islands of Tahiti on the map. In 1967, Tahiti became the first #destination in the world to take accommodation into uncharted waters, building suites over its islands’ beautiful blue lagoons in a move that cemented the Society Islands as one of the world’s most sought-after holiday destinations.
The first humble overwater bungalows were built in Raiatea and Moorea fifty years on, there are now nearly 900 overwater bungalows spread across eight of Tahiti’s 118 islands, with the picturesque accommodation becoming as famous as the destination’s dazzling lagoons.
Originally built as traditional stilted coral homes, over the past five decades the Islands of Tahiti’s overwater bungalows have evolved into palatial suites boasting private terraces, infinity pools, hammocks, spa baths and in-room glass floors.
