Overwater Bungalows Caribbean FAQs 

After rounding up some of the best overwater bungalows in the region, here are helpful FAQs to help you enjoy your upcoming honeymoon holiday better.

What makes overwater bungalows special?

Overwater bungalows are unique accommodations usually built on stilts above clear azure waters. They offer the most incredible views and give you direct access to water if you want to swim and soak up the sun. The bungalows have all the needed amenities (e.g., bathroom, bed, minibar) and extra perks (e.g., outdoor shower, pool, hammock) for a truly secluded getaway.

Are overwater bungalows all-inclusive?

Not all overwater bungalows offer all-inclusive packages. If you wish for a cost-effective honeymoon vacation, look for all-inclusive resorts like Sandals. Your price will already cover your accommodation, drinks, food, and some activities. 

When is the best time to stay in overwater bungalows in the Caribbean? 

While this varies from island to island, the generally recommended timeframe is between December to April if you’re looking for the best weather. However, note that this is also a peak travel season, so the competition is high, especially among the most in-demand overwater bungalows the Caribbean has. Consider May to June or September to October if you want a quieter experience and are okay with occasional rains.
