Welcome to our choices for, and in depth reviews of, the best luxury overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean in 2021.
Though the Caribbean certainly isn’t short of luxury resorts, overwater bungalows, especially of the luxury honeymoon variety are a relatively recent addition and indeed they are still relatively scarce.
This is not for lack of demand, quite the contrary (always be prepared to book well in advance for an overwater bungalow in the Caribbean), it is just that overwater bungalows are quite specialist structures that need certain conditions to be viable i.e. shallow, sheltered, consistently calm waters.
Still though there are some great options for luxury overwater bungalows in the Caribbean and in the compilation of this list we chose resorts in seven countries, namely Antigua, Aruba, Belize, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama and St Lucia. All of them within easy reach of the US, with direct flights from many cities, including Miami, Florida.
These are all top class resorts, most indeed are 5 Star, and you can expect extremely high standards of accommodation, not just in the overwater bungalows but overall, facilities (luxury spa facilities and personal butler service being a standard feature for many), food & drink and service. Some are all inclusive and some are adults only.
See our reviews of these fabulous overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean below, plus lots of photos. All come with instant online booking and a lowest price guarantee via our various affiliate partners which include Sandals.com, Booking.com & Expedia.
The Best Overwater Bungalows in the Caribbean in 2021:
The enchanting little island of St. Lucia has only one resort with overwater bungalows - the 5 Star, all inclusive Sandals Grande St Lucian.
Lack of choice isn't generally a good thing but here, as long as you have the means to afford it, you don't have much to to worry about - Sandals Grande is a fabulous resort, one of the very best in the Caribbean.
Its overwater bungalows too are as luxurious and romantic as you would expect from Sandals. There are only nine of them though and they are the resort's most sought after accommodation so you may be disappointed unless you book well in advance.
