It’s always the perfect time to lounge over the sea.

Where is the one place where romance and adventure come together with beautiful sights all around? OVERWATER BUNGALOWS! We’ve put together our favorite recommendations for the perfect, most relaxing destinations suspended over the sea!

Option #1: Bora Bora

Breathtaking is not enough to describe the beauty of Bora Bora’s overwater bungalows! With this destination, you can truly feel like you have escaped the mundane routines of normal life as you lodge in luxurious villas and suites that stand above a turquoise lagoon. Famous for its scuba diving, Bora Bora will welcome you with adventure and relaxation. The bungalows will keep you wanting to come back again and again. Let’s get you booked to this island retreat just northwest of Tahiti in the South Pacific.

Option #2: Jamaica

Next up, we present the land of ‘taking it easy.’ Jamaica offers some of the best overwater bungalow options on this list. Sandals South Coast and Sandals Royal Caribbean offer an array of all-inclusive overwater villas and suites that include your room, meals, beverages, snorkeling, scuba-diving (if certified!), AND tips. In fact, these bungalows are some of the first Sandals’ tested out and vacationers just can’t get enough of them. Aside from also being a beautiful wedding destination, Jamaica is host to stunning attractions such as beautiful waterfalls and rainforest adventure tours. We’d love to see you take it easy and turn up your vacation mode at this destination.

Option #3: St. Lucia

This destination really expands on the idea of overwater bungalows with some additional unique options. In St. Lucia, you can find bungalows with glass floors that light up so you can spy on sea life, even at night! Sandals Grande St. Lucian is one of our favorite couples-only resorts in the world. This is where you can find overwater hammocks, butler service, mountainous views, and romantic suites—all paired with amazing Caribbean dining! Get ready for themed entertainment nights and street festivals when you visit this relaxation-prone island.

Option #4: Mexico

In Mexico, you will find the El Dorado Maroma Resort which hosts the Palafito overwater bungalow. With sights you won’t be able to take your eyes off of, Maroma Beach, one of the top ten beaches in the world, will become a routine vacation destination for you in no time. The collection of 30 exclusive, private bungalows will make your trip feel even more special with the ability to turn on the romance wherever you might be in the resort. Going south would feel really good this summer—better start planning today.
