At the Manihi Pearl Beach Resort, the beauty of the natural world envelops you at every turn. The 25 spacious bungalows are made from local wood, bamboo, and stone and are set along a white-sand beach or over bright-blue waters. In the latter, glass-top coffee tables tender an ever-changing vista of the coral garden below, making it difficult to venture outside the room. But do try. The Poe Rava restaurant serves traditional Polynesian fare in view of the ocean, and the thatched-roof Manea Spa offers treatments such as the Monoï Poe black-pearl massage and the Mahana Manea (a coconut-pulp and cumin body scrub). And with a black-pearl boutique, marina, and scuba-diving center on-site, there’s no reason ever to leave the resort.

Room to Book:

Some of the five Premium Overwater Bungalows are worth the splurge: in addition to glass-bottom views into the lagoon, these rooms are the only ones that offer air-conditioning.

Insider Tip:

Manihi is the birthplace of black pearls as we know them. The resort arranges excursions ($28 per person) to visit many of the 60-plus oyster farms that line the lagoon, each selling locally made jewelry or unset pearls that range in color from purple to gray.
