Overwater Bungalows in St. Lucia:
The little island nation of St. Lucia has just 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.

Overwater bungalows can be found in seven different countries around the Caribbean: Antigua, Aruba, Belize, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama & St. Lucia.
All of them are within easy reach of the US, with direct flights from most major cities.
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 have still quite a few great options – and we at Dreamoverwater have reviewed them all for you.
These are all top-class resorts, many indeed are 5 Star, and you can expect very high standards of accommodation, facilities and service.
Many are all-inclusive, and most – in the overwater bungalow section at least – will be adults-only.
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.
