A beautiful tropical region that hosts 115 islands, the Seychelles is a dream come true for most vacationers who seek a beach, sun, and a cold drink. Unfortunately, there aren't any overwater villas in this area as of now, and there aren't any plans at the moment to build any that we know of. However, there is good news. Nearby, there is a plethora of overwater resorts, and those are found in the famed Maldives.
Around two-thirds of the world's 125 or so overwater resorts are in the Maldives, so there are lots of great choices in this one area compared to anywhere else on the globe. There's also a single water villa resort to be found in Mauritius, which is just to the south, and located a bit closer to South Africa.
