Overwater resorts are known for their luxury standards, top notch designs and island decor. Though this is very true for most resorts around the world, there are a few that take amenities to the next level with unexpected features that add an extra touch to each villa.

When looking through lists of resorts, you'll quickly find that many resorts in the Maldives specialize in private bathrooms or private wooden terraces that offer stairs into the ocean or lagoon below. However, there are only a few that offer private, enjoyable jacuzzis designed for one or two people. These jacuzzis can be either be found inside the villa or right on the private terrace, offering gorgeous views of the ocean and sky from the luxury of a relaxing dip. Below you'll find a list of the 9 best overwater resorts for a jacuzzi experience, including some with surprisingly affordable nightly rates. In addition, you'll find that all of the resorts below offer dining options, water activities, spacious rooms, and some pretty great reviews.

  1. I’m looking for a 2 bed or 2 bedroom overwater bungalow for early 2025. I know it’s too early to get rates but I have to start researching now. It would be in February 2025. 3 adults, 2 bed/bedrooms.
    Is this all inclusive?
    Is there a way to stay in the overwater bungalow for 3 days and the rest of the nights at the hotel on land?
    Is the seaplane the only way to get to your location? or is there a ferry?

    1. Kunta,

      There are all-inclusive resorts in the Maldives, but not all of them. Almost all of the water villas have one large bed and most have a pull-out sofa. If you need two large beds you’ll probably have to book two water villas. There are a few places that have 2-bedroom water villas, but the prices are pretty much always much more than the price of two single water villas. The 2-bedroom places are super-luxury suites and usually start at at least US$3,000 per night.

      Yes, you can book a few nights in a water villa and the rest of your stay in an island room. Some people even get upgraded that way and end up longer in the water villa.

      Most Maldives resorts require a seaplane journey to get there, but the ones closer to the airport can also have a speedboat option and sometimes both. The sea-planes are obviously expensive, but they are an amazing and thrilling ride as well so most people love them. I hope this helps. -Roger
