Over-the-water bungalows seem to just call out to come relax and lose yourself in an exotic paradise. Until recently, most of these paradise bungalows could only be found in places like Bora Bora, Tahiti and Fiji and to escape to one of them you first had to endure a 12+ hour flight to get there.
We are so happy to announce that over-the-water bungalows are now coming to the Caribbean and Florida!! Mexico will get its first over-the-water bungalows through Karisma Resorts when they add them in late 2015 at El Dorado Maroma. You can see the progress in the photo below:

Sandals Resorts is also giving the Caribbean this option at their beautiful Royal Caribbean Resort in Jamaica. Each of the suites will feature a private outdoor Jacuzzi tub and shower, a hammock for two hanging over the water, and steps leading from the sundeck straight into the ocean. The breathtaking interiors will boast 1,600 square feet of space, with a large walk in shower and indoor soaking tub. You can fully embrace the suite’s ‘over-the-water’ setting with glass flooring that allows you to view the clear water and marine life below - which will even be lit for night viewing. The service of a professional butler will ensure you never have to lift a finger and can instead embrace the beautiful scenery around you. Aren't the artist renderings (pictures below) inviting?
And finally, you know that if there is something new and exciting happening that you will find Disney Worldwide Travel Company right in the mix! Disney is opening 20 Bungalows at the Polynesian Villages Resort at Walt Disney World in Florida scheduled to open April 1st, 2015. They will be called the Bora Bora Bungalows and each bungalow will sleep 8, having a master bedroom with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with a queen sized and pull-down bed. The living room includes a dining table, living space, and a second pull down sleeper bed. Also part of the villa is a full kitchen and laundry area.
