The Maldives, with their tropical inspired water bungalows, spa escapes, and adventurous activities, beckon travelers of all kinds from around the globe. Because of this, you'll find lots of competition between the resorts in the region, with each one trying to outdo the other by offering their guests the best of the best through a selection of resort amenities and views. With all of the amenities offered, you'll find that one of the most talked about amenities that certainly helps to separate certain overwater resorts from all the others is the presence of glass floors.

However, because glass floors and cutouts are not a brand new idea, you'll note during your research that there are many resorts scattered around the Maldives that have them, which can make the choice of which one to choose a difficult one, at best. Below, you'll find a list that we've complied of the 11 cheapest resorts in the Maldives that come with some sort of glass floor layout in their overwater villas.

Glass floors in overwater rooms

Because they are noted as a very popular  and impressive feature, glass floor cutouts do a fantastic job at helping to add a little something extra to an already great room. They also come in different forms. Sometimes they come in the form of a section of glass flooring that you can walk around on, where as other times you’ll find that they are placed under a coffee table which allows you to enjoy a morning drink as you watch the happenings of the ocean below. Though you’ll find that you already have an impressive view of the ocean from your villa’s windows and the glass doors that lead out to the deck, glass floors help guests view the sea life under their bungalow easily without having to get into the water itself.
