Best Overwater Bungalows

So it is officially Spring and if you live anywhere near where I do, it is really hard to tell.  Especially when there is still snow in the forecast:(  But maybe these images of the world's best over water bungalows will whisk you away from the snow and cold....even if it's just a day dream.......


Cocoa Island by COMO

Where: Maldives

Although there are plenty of beautiful over water resorts in the Maldives, what makes Cocoa Island by COMO stand out is its design. Instead of the traditional thatched-roof bungalow, guest rooms are built to look like traditional dhoni boats. All over water suites have private sundecks with loungers, and guests can enjoy the services of Cocoa Island’s butlers, who tackle everything from arranging romantic dinners to giving guided snorkeling tours.

Insider Tip: Cocoa Island's surrounding waters are filled with coral reefs, manta rays, and even a shipwreck. Shark viewing is offered for experienced divers.

Starting rate (per night for 2 adults): $1250

Rosewood Mayakoba

Where: Riviera Maya, Mexico

The Rosewood Mayakoba is spread over 1,600 acres of beach and jungle connected by a series of lagoons. The hotel is just south of Cancún, but guests won’t find a spring breaker in sight. While all guest rooms have a contemporary design, the Deluxe Over water Lagoon Suite sits above the resort’s lagoon and comes with its own deck, private plunge pool, and outdoor garden shower.

Insider Tip: Guests can sign up for a daily guided eco-tour of the resort’s lagoon, led by the resort’s on-site biologist.

Starting rate (per night for 2 adults): $810

 Cayo Espanto
Where: Belize

This four-acre private island resort has only seven villas, and those looking for total privacy can rent the entire island. One Cayo Espanto villa, the Casa Ventanas, is built over the water, located off a 150-foot-long dock, and surrounded on all sides by the Caribbean Sea. Guests can relax on sun loungers at the end of their dock, where a private dinner can also be served.

Insider Tip: Casa Ventanas has a glass-paneled floor, which reveals fish swimming right under your bungalow.

Starting rate (per night for 2 adults): $1795

Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

Where: Bora Bora

Bora Bora is often described as one of the most beautiful spots on earth, but the Four Seasons Bora Bora kicks it up a notch, featuring 100 over water bungalows perched on stilts above a private lagoon. The largest ones have private plunge pools and ladders leading down to the water. Guests who feel motivated to leave their villas can unwind at the spa, where treatments incorporate local ingredients like vanilla.

Insider Tip: Head to the resort’s own private lagoon to snorkel, view coral grafting exhibits, watch octopus feeding sessions, and discuss the Polynesian ecosystem with a marine biologist.

Starting rate (per night for 2 adults): $1393
