Unique Qualities: The typical Polynesian style overwater bungalows are quite unique. They have a glass panel or table in the floor, allowing you to have a peek at what the fish are doing in the coral gardens below.

These bungalows often have thatched roofs of woven pandanus leaves and woven bamboo walls. They have a porch or veranda with steps leading into the lagoon.
