Are all of the overwater bungalows the same or are there various options?
Carlie: The Sandals over-water- bungalows layout of the rooms are the same. Except one location at the Sandals, Royal Caribbean has a private pool and the size of the bungalows are larger than the other bungalows. What makes all the bungalows different is the destination and each resort has something slightly different to offer.
Where are your favorite over-water bungalows located?
Carlie: WOW they are all so amazing!! I would base it upon what do you want to do while on bungalow vacation? The layout of the rooms for the different Sandals options are the same. You have three locations Sandals South Coast, Sandals Grande St Lucia and Sandals Royal Caribbean. The main differences is travel time, do you want a private island experience with boat ferry included or do you want to walk out from the beach to your bungalow suite. St Lucia and Jamaica offer similar but totally different excursions etc.
What is the difference between booking an overwater bungalow vs. a room at a resort?
Carlie: The bungalow of the water is the most amazing room you will ever stay in. At Sandals Resorts all rooms are luxurious but the over the water bungalow is one of a kind. The two of you stay over the water in a hut with glass floor to view the sea life 24/7 and room service is included to enjoy 24/7 room service. The room is so perfect you never want to leave. You have an outdoor shower, outdoor soaking tub with privacy curtains, hammock over the water, place to dine outside or have cocktails, snorkeling gear to snorkel anytime, stand up paddle boards and more. The over the water bungalow has everything you ever dreamed and more. Questions about this be sure to reach out to Carlie Finch at 2 Travel Anywhere LLC.
