The overwater bungalows.

Resort Experience:
The Sofitel is a laid-back, beautiful resort on the best beach on Moorea. The Overwater Bungalows are amazing! They have a glass coffee table which opens up to the ocean below, so you can feed the fish from your room - or you can just watch the fish swimming below you. There is also a private sun deck with steps leading down into the ocean, and snorkel equipment is waiting for you on the deck. It is heaven! The snorkeling on Moorea is the BEST I have done, and you can see amazing creatures (eels, rays, etc.) right off the beach (or right off your overwater bungalow) at the resort. If you're not afraid of lizards, you can get an open air garden bungalow with no A/C, but be prepared to share your room with lizards and a few insects.
