Overwater Bungalows in Jamaica - An Overview
Jamaica has long been popular as a luxury honeymoon destination, its resorts can be world class, in particular those of the Sandals company which first began its brand of all inclusive opulence right there.
Overwater bungalows are a new addition to the luxury resort sector in Jamaica and it is Sandals again which we can thank for that.
They have two resorts with overwater bungalows in Jamaica - Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals South Coast, both of which are terrific 5 Star, all inclusive resorts, some of the very best in the Caribbean.
Sandals Royal Caribbean is just five miles from the airport on its own private island, which means you can be diving into the sea from your overwater bungalow with almost minutes of your arrival in Jamaica.
It may be tempting therefore to nip in an out but be aware though that there can be a premium to be paid in high season for stays of less than 3 days.
The latter, Sandals South Coast, is about an hour and a half away but is more secluded and quieter, and feels a little more like an escape to paradise.
Both are all inclusive resorts and adults only. Their overwater bungalows are similar, and similarly impressive, with large outside decks, splash pools and stylish, top of the range, furniture & fittings including the classic glass floor panels.
