Welcome to our 2021 choices for the best luxury overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean!
Though there certainly isn’t a shortage of luxury resorts in the Caribbean, overwater bungalows/overwater villas, especially those of the luxury honeymoon variety, are still relatively scarce.
This is not for lack of demand, quite the contrary (always be prepared to book very well in advance for an overwater bungalow in the Caribbean), it is just that they are quite specialist structures that need certain conditions to be viable i.e. shallow, sheltered, consistently calm waters.
But, though few in number, you still have some really great options here – all are top class resorts, most indeed are 5 Star, and you can expect extremely high standards of accommodation, facilities and service.
In the compilation of this list we chose resorts in seven countries, all of them within easy reach of the US, with direct flights from most major cities.

Over Water Bungalows in Antigua:
There is but one resort in Antigua with overwater accommodation and that is The Royalton, a luxury, all inclusive adults only resort, recently (2021) acquired by the Marriott hotel chain.

Their overwater bungalows are spacious at 1442 square feet and are filled with luxury features. Their terrace areas being particularly nice with infinity plunge pools, overwater hammocks and direct access to the dreamy waters beneath.
