2016 – The Year of the Caribbean Overwater Bungalow!

splash1For many people, the dream of vacationing in a private overwater bungalow in the tropics of Tahiti or Bora Bora is a dream that often doesn’t become a reality due to things like too few vacation days, or being unable (or unwilling) to take an extended international flight.  This is one of the reasons I am SO excited that two All Inclusive Resorts (Karisma and Sandals) have both announced the addition of overwater bungalows coming to their Caribbean properties!  No… you can never fully re-create the beautiful tropical waters of Tahiti, but when you have limited vacation days to work with, and you can be in your private bungalow after a quick nonstop flight, these options are looking pretty darn enticing!!

Lets look at the facts:

 El Dorado Maroma – Palafitos-Overwater Bungalows – Riviera Maya, Mexico:

Opening September 1, 2016 at the El Dorado Maroma Resort, these bungalows are located on the gorgeous Maroma Beach area of the Riviera Maya (Voted one of Travel Channels Top 10 Beaches in the World) and are the first of their kind in Mexico.

  • The romantic “Aguas del Amor” outdoor shower
  • Indoor Jacuzzi for two
  • Oversized deck with wooden lounge chairs
  • Personalize Butler Service
  • Access to Overwater Grill & Wine Bar

Sandals Royal Caribbean – Over-The-Water Villas – Montego Bay, Jamaica: 

Opening November 15, 2016 at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort, these Villas are located away from the main section of the resort (essentially on their own private island), in order to get to/from the main resort it’s a quick private boat ride away (the resort is still visible), however it does add an extra air of privacy and exclusivity.sandals-jamaica-over-water-01
