Romantic Getaways 5 Most Affordable Overwater Bungalows


An overwater bungalow is a honeymooner’s dream, but it can cost $1,000 or more per night. These options, in destinations from Mexico to the Maldives, only cost half as much.
Intercontinental Tahiti Resort & Spa – Tahiti

Of the 265 rooms that make up this 32-acre Tahitian retreat, located along a pristine lagoon, only 31 are overwater bungalows. The villas feature comfy beds, marble bathrooms and unimpeded views of the neighboring island of Moorea; they’re also the most affordable floating accommodations in French Polynesia. Turn up the romance with a sunset cruise, or take a small boat to a nearby motu (islet) for a private five-course dinner. Weekends bring the island’s best showcase for traditional dance by Les Grands Ballets de Tahiti troupe.

Olhuveli Beach and Spa Resort – Maldives

Set along the Maldives’ South Malé Atoll, this resort is a virtual Garden of Eden encompassing towering palms, powdery beaches and a peaceful lagoon with 60 stilted cottage & bungalow. All villas feature private sun decks with vistas that stretch for miles. Up the ante by booking a Jacuzzi villa for an open-air hot tub on an expansive terrace. Rest up at the holistic Sun Spa with an Ayurvedic or Balinese couples massage before embarking on a thrilling night dive to view whale sharks, dolphins and manta rays. Or enjoy some alone time on your deck with a five-course wine-pairing dinner served by your personal waiter.

El Nido Lagen Island Resort – Philippines

The western Philippines archipelago of Palawan isn’t well known to U.S. travelers, but it won’t stay that way. The 18 water cottages at this eco-chic resort along Bacuit Bay are nestled on a strip of sand where lush jungle meets sparkling lagoon. Active couples can have top of your boat kayaks to the island’s hidden caves, hike through the rainforest or snorkel right off of their cottage’s sun deck. Want something more sedentary? Wile away the days on quiet beaches, or get pampered at the traditional Filipino-style spa. Still, the most perfect honeymoon time might just be spent alone on the veranda of your bungalow, perfect for sunbathing, stargazing or snuggling.

Hotel Desconocido – Mexico

One hundred acres of beaches, lagoons and organic gardens make up this resort (which means “little unknown hotel” in Spanish), located south of Puerto Vallarta at the end of a peninsula boasting a UNESCO World Heritage-recognized wildlife estuary. But it’s in Hotelito’s 27 thatch palafitos, poised over a lagoon, that couples will likely spend most of their time. Hand-painted tiles and canopy beds carved from guayabillo wood decorate the breezy villas. Brightly painted rowboats serve as your means for exploring the property’s watery landscape — home to pelicans, frigates and sea turtles — as well as its 40-mile white-sand beach. Come dusk, the solar-powered villas and grounds are lit with hundreds of candles and blazing tiki torches, giving every evening a romantic glow.

Punta Caracol Acqua Lodge – Panama

Seclusion is key at this nine-bungalow eco-resort located just off the shores of Panama’s Isla Colon in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Colorful villas feature thatch roofs, hammocks strung on wraparound terraces, and stairs leading to the Caribbean. A low-key vibe prevails throughout, from the beachfront candlelit restaurant to the solar panels that power the property. Those looking for adventure can snorkel or kayak the mile-long coral reef, or explore the nearby rainforest to mingle with friendly sloths and indigenous scarlet red frogs.

Kanuhura Maldives: An All New USD 42 Million Gypset Style Resort

Kanuhura Maldives – thundi.com – Maldives Wedding & Honeymoon Destination Blog

Kanuhura Maldives - thundi.com - Maldives Wedding & Honeymoon Destination Blog  Kanuhura Maldives, owned and managed by Sun Resorts, has shared the wishes of its high profile, long-term guests with the world by re-imaging a property consisting of three islands in the northern quadrant of the Lhaviyani Atoll.
With as many as 15 annual visits, lovers and dreamers who first set foot on the soft sands of Kanuhura as couples or young families were the cornerstone for this evolution.
This nautical bohemian design concept over the unique three island experience is by former Gold Key Designer of the Year and Founder of London-based Muza Lab, Inge Moore, in cooperation with Hirsch Bedner Associates, that revitalises the identity of the resort by focusing on the idea of “Gypset”.

Kanuhura Maldives - thundi.com - Maldives Wedding & Honeymoon Destination Blog
Gypset is a new way of life, according to New York-based journalist and author Julia Chaplin, who wrote about a generation of travellers who she defined as part Gypsy, driven by freedom and escapism, and part Jetset, a reflection of their success and appreciation of the finer things in life.


Kanuhura Maldives - thundi.com - Maldives Wedding & Honeymoon Destination Blog

The USD 42 Million design overhaul of Kanuhura, combined with the buying of the Masleggihura island, was overseen by Sun Resorts CEO David Anderson, who appointed Robert Hauck, formerly of Raffles Hotels and Resorts and Asia’s top sports and lifestyle complex, Thanyapura Phuket as General Manager to lead the resort.
“We have a uniquely sheltered location over three islands and are blessed with a heritage of repeat guests over the past 20 years,” said Mr Hauck. “We have grown up together and are now enhancing this by developing experiences for guests where they can be free, unconventional, open, stay fit and totally relax.”

“We offer everything from total escapism and tranquility on Masleggihura island to a 300-metre sea swim to Jehunuhura island, a 2.25km round island run on Kanuhura and soon to be launched Project South which will be the first martial arts academy in the Maldives led by two-time world Muay Thai champion, Irshaad Sayed.”

Guests can experience a local culinary masterclass at A Mano. A Mano, which means “touched by the hand”, is an ethos that is celebrated throughout every aspect of the island’s kitchen. All produce is free range, seasonal and mainly from small growers and producers – a celebration of traditional home cooking found on the trade routes.

Kokaa Spa, named after the all-white local butterfly, features Marma therapy that focuses on releasing energy from 103 pressure points in your body. It was recently recognised as one of the “World’s Best Spas” in National Geographic’s Spa & Wellness Collection.
