The Overwater Hotel: Your Tahitian-Style Honeymoon in the Caribbean

Looking for an unforgettable honeymoon and dreaming of Tahiti’s romantic overwater bungalows but can’t make the trip halfway across the world? Consider Jamaica’s newest overwater bungalow hotel. Sandals Royal Caribbean All Inclusive, a favorite beach resort among honeymooners, recently incorporated its first overwater bungalows. The overwater extension is something out of a dream: a collection of huts perched over the shallow turquoise water, each connected by a heart-shaped walkway. Your honeymoon suite is easily accessible from the shore by a narrow bridge, or you and your loved one can kayak to your room.

Sandals Royal Caribbean is definitely worth checking out when planning your romantic getaway!

Your Perfect Over-the-Water Honeymoon

The Sandals Royal Caribbean is a fairly new resort built on the shoreline of Montego Bay. It is the flagship resort of a growing award-winning brand with 24 properties and counting, and their newest addition is a collection of exclusive and luxurious overwater bungalows lining the shores. The Sandals Royal Caribbean has 12 hut-styled overwater bungalows, each with glass bottom floors for viewing the colorful sea life as you walk in your suite. Step outside on your private deck, take a dip in your very own romantic infinity pool and watch the ocean on all sides. There’s also a romantic outdoor shower for two next to your pool. Each suite features stair access to the water and a private butler who tends to your every need!

Things to Do at Sandals Royal Caribbean Overwater Bungalows

This large resort offers all kinds of activities for couples. Your suite includes a romantic infinity pool that’s practically level with the ocean, or if that’s not luxurious enough, reserve an over-the-water hammock for two on Montego Bay’s shallow waters. Check out their scuba diving program and explore Montego Bay’s reefs and sea walls or its historic shipwrecks. If you would like to stay above the water, Sandals offers equipment and professional instruction for waterskiing, Hobie cats, aqua trikes, tubing and paddle boating. Once you get a hang of it, you can paddleboat right by the hotel and hop into your pool. If you do decide to go onshore, consider visiting the mainland resort and trying authentic international restaurants. Bella Napoli Pizzeria has inspiring Italian cuisine and Mariner Seaside Bar and Grill is a seafood lover’s dream.

For an exciting night out, visit Sandals’ exclusive private offshore island—it’s just five minutes by boat and features two beautiful white-sand beaches for your own private pleasure. Get an ice-cold drink at the swim-up pool bar before eating at the on-site authentic Thai restaurant.

How to Get to Sandals Royal Caribbean

Sandals is easily accessible. Upon arrival at Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport, your complimentary transfer takes you to the resort in just 15 minutes. Reserve an overwater hammock for two, sip from the resort’s featured Robert Mondavi Red Twin Oaks wine and start your unforgettable honeymoon!
