you might already know, almost all of the overwater bungalow resorts in the world are in two main places. One is the Maldives, which is an island group and nation just southwest of India, where you'll find about 75 water villa resorts alone. That accounts for about two thirds of all the overwater bungalow resorts in the world.
The other grouping, which is actually more famous internationally, is spread around the South Pacific. Of course “the South Pacific” is a pretty vague-sounding term, and some people prefer to visualize things. As a result we've put together this map of all overwater bungalow resorts in the South Pacific, including the clusters in Bora Bora, Moorea, and Tahiti.
If you are more interested in the greatest selection of high-end resorts just have a look at the specific Bora Bora bungalow resort map, or the Moorea and Tahiti bungalow resort map. Those are actually just zoomed-in sections of this larger map, but this one allows you to see the entire lot of them. Those who are coming from Asia, Australia, or New Zealand will notice there are several that are much closer to home, therefore cheaper and easier to reach.
Im interested in know where the overwater bungalows are located. Do they have any that close to Destin Florida?
There are some overwater bungalows on a lake in the Disney resort. Aside from those the closest are in Jamaica at Sandals. -Roger
I would love to reserve a week stay in an over the water bungalow including May 16th 2021.

We are simply an online guide to overwater bungalows and we don’t do bookings, but we do provide links to the best places to book each resort on the various information pages of the site. Best of luck! -Roger
Looking for New Years deals after December 25th for 5-10days. Any suggestions on last min deals??
Please let me know. Looking to book asap
We are simply an online guide to overwater resorts and we don’t do bookings. We do have booking links for every resort on the site, so booking online is usually your best bet. Best of luck with this. In normal years it would be impossible to get a last-minute deal over Christmas, but this year might be different. I’d check agoda.com as they almost always have the best rates in the Maldives. -Roger
Any suggestions as to a nice place for an extended stay? Preferably on a beach, over water and food inclusive. I have heard a rumour about $30 k per couple for a one year stay…any substance to that? We don’t need a year,, but would certainly consider three to five months. We are retired, used to travel a lot, and have homes in Canada and Mexico. We are now a bit bored in Canada and Mexico is a bit dicey.
I’m not aware of any good deals on overwater bungalows in countries where you can stay for extended periods. The Maldives now has a deal for US$30,000 to stay in a water villa for a whole year, but I believe you can only stay 30 days at a time. It’s a really tough time for anything like this, and hopefully next year it will get better. -Roger
