Travel Channel gives advice on ten alternatives to bucket list destinations - and Sandals Royal Caribbean's Over-the-Water Bungalows made it to the list. Forget traveling half way across the globe, these bungalows are just a hop, skip and a jump away.
As Travel Channel puts it. "Once-in-a-lifetime trips are called that for a reason. For the years when time, money and/or logistics aren't in your favor, consider these 10 worthwhile alternatives.
French Polynesia and the Maldives possess the lion’s share of overwater bungalows, but the time and expense of getting to those islands is a deal-breaker for many. Don’t despair: they’re not the only places in the world to get the full overwater experience. Enter the brand-new bungalows at the five-star, all-inclusive Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort, one of the only real-deal overwater bungalows on this side of the world. This new addition to the Montego Bay resort includes 12 truly luxurious villas modeled after their Tahitian counterparts, with glass floors, giant soaking tubs and infinity pools to boot. While the spacious bungalows are removed from the rest of the resort, a private butler, 24-hour room service and dedicated water taxi ensure that you won’t feel like you’re stranded on a remote (if posh) retreat. Starting at $1,435 a night, it’s not cheap, but still a lot closer than the Maldives."
