Over-The-Water Bungalows Are Closer Than You Think…


The purest form of bliss is escaping to a place that is paradise in true form. A place where you can not only find the sort of intimacy and tropical euphoria you’ve always imagined, but also enjoy it with the one you love. Of course, for such a place to be worth going to at all, it would need to be complete with scenic ocean views, swaying palm trees, greenery everywhere you look, and hopefully… Over-The-Water Bungalows.

Fortunately for the ever-searching traveler, this piece of paradise actually exists. Accommodation options that match this description can be found in a number of destinations across the globe, including Asia and the South Pacific.

But… what if we told you that you don’t have to travel as far as the Maldives or Tahiti to have a luxurious Over-The-Water Bungalow experience?

What if it was possible to book your own Over-The-Water Villa with butler service just a one-and-a-half-hour flight away from Miami, a three-and-a-half-hour flight from New York City?

Sandals’ Over-The-Water Bungalows and Villas are among the Caribbean’s most alluring accommodations and include sea-through glass floors where you can catch a glimpse of what’s happening in the marine world, king-size beds for ultimate comfort, and spa inspired bathrooms. There’s a lot more to fall in love with when it comes to the surroundings of these bungalows, but it all depends on which island you choose.
