For a honeymoon or romantic break in the Caribbean, a luxury overwater bungalow is perhaps the ultimate indulgence.
Though quite a recent addition to the region, overwater bungalows can now be found in seven different countries in the Caribbean: Antigua, Aruba, Belize, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, St. Lucia & Turks & Caicos – All of them are within easy reach of the USA, with direct flights from most major cities.
These are all top-class resorts, many indeed are 5 Star, and you can expect very high standards of accommodation, facilities and service.
Some overwater bungalows in the Caribbean are all-inclusive, and most – in the overwater bungalow section at least – will be adults-only.
There are only a handful in each of these countries though you must be warned. This is because, compared to the atolls of the Maldives or Bora Bora, the conditions required for overwater bungalows – shallow, sheltered, consistently calm waters – are much more challenging to come by in the Caribbean.
But…though few in number, you still have still a few great options – and we at Dreamoverwater have chosen, and fully reviewed for you, only the best in each country.
Most will have prices to match their undoubted scarcity value too, unfortunately, but there are some cheaper overwater bungalows in the Caribbean too, especially in Panama – check them out below.
