Unlike any other resort suite or hotel room, an overwater bungalow is a unique and romantic option for couples. Many choose to stay in these enchanting huts, at home with the waters below, for their honeymoon or just to rekindle a bit of the magic. Synonymous with romance, overwater bungalows boast unsurpassed views and are considered the epitome of luxury.
Here are our top five romantic overwater bungalows.
In the heart of the Maldives, you’ll find the Conrad Hotel on Rangali Island. Home to a variety of overwater bungalows, from King Spa Villas to Sunset Water Villas, there is no end to luxury living here.
