Gorgeous Overwater Bungalow Resorts within a 4-Hour Flight of the U.S. ~ Ideal for Honeymoon Planning.

Rosewood Mayakoba, Mexico

It's a honeymooner’s life at the luxurious Rosewood Mayakoba, a tranquil five-star escape in Mexico’s Riviera Maya known for its excellent spa, upscale restaurants, and setting along a mile-long beach and interior mangrove. All of its 128 suites feature gorgeous rich-wood furniture and private plunge pools—but it’s the deluxe overwater lagoon suites you’ll want to spring for. They’re not stilted, per se, but they add sundecks, outdoor garden showers, and swim-up access from the lagoon to the mix.

El Dorado Palafitos, Maroma Beach, Mexico

El Dorado Maroma by Karisma debuted their stilted Palafitos in 2016—the first overwater bungalows to hit Mexico. As an adults-only all-inclusive resort, you can expect all the romantic perks: outdoor showers, 24-hour butlers, private infinity plunge pools, and glass floor panels where you can watch schools of fish swirl below.

Sandals Grande St. Lucian, St. Lucia

Further down the Caribbean belt, in breezy St. Lucia, couples-only Sandals Grande St. Lucian recently introduced nine of its own over-the-water villas with the same inclusive luxuries. We’re talking see-through glass floors overlooking the water, butler service, overwater hammocks, and free reign of the resort’s mile-long beach—but with the added perk of wining and dining at sister resorts Sandals Regency La Toc and Sandals Halcyon included in your rate.

Thatch Caye Resort, Belize

Thatch Caye, a private-island hideaway nine miles off the coast of Belize, has been in the overwater bungalow game for years. Over-the-top luxury resort this is not, but if you're looking to get back to nature and off the grid, you won't find a more magical place to do it. Everything, including the five overwater bungalows (tricked out with hammocks, private baths, and bamboo ceilings), is run by wind and solar power, and dinners at the restaurant are served communally—the perfect way to cap off an afternoon snorkeling the world’s second-largest barrier reef.
