Top 9 most exquisite overwater villas in the world

6. Pearl Beach Resort & Spa, Bora Bora
Your private haven: If luxury accommodation and views of the French Polynesia are a priority for you, we’d recommend the End of Pontoon overwater bungalows at the Pearl Beach Resort & Spa. The villas offer 53 square meters of space which entail a king-size bed, large bathroom with bath and separate shower, separate toilets, glass-topped tables to view the lagoon fish, outdoor terrace, seating area and sun deck with direct access to the water – they are to the resort what front-row seats are to the opera, with their unimpeded view of the lagoon and Mount Otemanu.
Book the villa at: $1110 per night
Gourmet options: There are 3 restaurants and 2 bars, including Tevairoa Restaurant which overlooks the turquoise waters of the Bora Bora Lagoon and offers al fresco dining on the terrace.

5. Rosewood Mayakoba, Mexico
Your private haven: From the moment you set foot on the palapa-roofed boat that brings you to your room’s private dock, the Rosewood transports you to an exotic world. Like a picture perfect scene, the Deluxe Overwater Lagoon Suite floats graciously above the lagoon’s emerald waters. This one-of-a-kind accommodation provides an inviting lounge terrace with a relaxing plunge pool, luxurious bathroom complete with outdoor garden shower, private walk-in closet and spectacular views of the lagoon and mangroves.
Book the villa at: $700 per night.
Gourmet options: Guests can experience 3 different cuisines on site: Mexican, Asian and international style.

4. Thalasso Spa, Bora Bora
Your private haven: A 1,010 square feet villa awaits your arrival with a spacious shaded terrace, sun lounges and a big private pontoon for sunbathing in front of the pristine waters of the lagoon. The generously sized villa entails a living room, bedroom, bathroom, walking closet, terrace and sundeck. Enjoy viewing fishes from the living room lagoon-scope. The bedroom features a glass wall in front of the bed!
Book the villa at: $1600 per night.
Gourmet options: Guests at Le Reef Restaurant can dine on the terrace overlooking the lagoon or inside the air-conditioned dining room. Le Sands Bar and Restaurant is located on the resort’s private beach.
