There is no better way to spend a tropical vacation than in an overwater bungalow. Perched above the water on stilts overwater bungalows provide you with your own private villa with direct access to the beautiful, warm, crystal clear waters below.
Designed with luxury in mind, overwater bungalows often feature private pools, patios, sun decks and multiple interior rooms. Some even feature glass floors so that you can enjoy the ocean and wildlife below such as schools of bright tropical fish.
To help you choose the perfect overwater bungalow we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites below:

Especially popular with honeymooners, the “island on an island” overwater bungalows are connected by winding, wooden walkways built on stilts over the lagoon. While sitting on your private balcony enjoying the lagoon and mountain views, you can contemplate a quick snorkel off the sun deck, or perhaps lie on the lounge with book in hand (while also keeping an eye on the sea below through the glass viewing panel!) or maybe just doze to the sound of the sea, the choice is yours.
