Where To Stay In An Overwater Bungalow Suite

It's hard to imagine anything more gorgeous than that one bedroom suite with the private plunge pool on your own secluded balcony overlooking nothing but bright blue water for miles and miles.

When you hear the words "Overwater Bungalow" or see breathtaking photos like the one above, many automatically think of places like Tahiti, the Maldives, and Fiji.   When it comes time to planning honeymoons and romantic vacations, those destinations and their sweet suites, top many couple's bucket lists.  But in reality, it takes a large amount of time and money to make those dreams of staying in a suite over-the-water come true.

For travelers who may not want to spend up to two days of travel time, or pay into the five figured for a week in the South Pacific, there are other alternatives for you!  Take a look...
