Where to Find Overwater Bures in Fiji

Nothing feels more relaxing than staying in your own private overwater bungalow with the sound of gentle water rolling below your feet. While overwater bungalows are pretty popular in locations like the Maldives, overwater “bures” have just become a thing in Fiji in recent years. The best thing about the overwater bungalows in Fiji is that there are only a small handful of overwater bures per resort, so there’s never too much foot traffic around your room. It feels exclusive, luxurious and utterly blissful. Check out the list of Fiji’s overwater bures below and see where you could get this experience for yourself.
