Staying in an overwater bungalow no longer requires a 20+ hour flight to Tahiti or the Maldives! Sandals St Lucian Grande overwater bungalows are opening May 15, 2017, and we were lucky to stay in them last week. Make sure to book online in advance, they will sell out fast!

Reasons why we love the Caribbean overwater bungalows
There are 3 Sandals Resorts in St.Lucia but the Sandals St Lucian Grande overwater bungalows are our top pick and here’s why.
Overwater Bungalow Rooms Glass Floor
Inside the overwater bungalow rooms, the main attraction is a HUGE glass floor looking down to the ocean. At night turn on the “fish light” to watch the fish swim by all night long. In the morning have breakfast in bed with a unique view.
Outdoor bathtub & shower
Rinse off the salt water in the outdoor shower or soak in the huge outdoor bathtub. We highly recommend relaxing in the tub with a glass of wine looking at the stars and hearing the ocean waves.

Hammocks over the ocean
The perfect place for an afternoon nap is on the hammock on the deck above the ocean.
#Suitelife Butler Service
Each Sandals overwater bungalow comes with a personal butler. You’ll be provided with a smartphone so your butler is always just a phone call away. The butlers are amazing and make your stay extra special. The butlers will do just about anything, our butler unpacked us, ironed our clothes, made our dinner reservations, escorted us to dinner, brought us room service, and even blew up my 8-foot unicorn float.
Rooms service at Sandals is available in several room categories but the overwater bungalow rooms have a special 5-star menu. Have you ever seen filet mignon & tiger prawns on a room service menu?
Tops shelf Liquor
Inside each Sandals overwater bungalow is a mini bar area with top-shelf liquor including Grey Goose, Hendricks, Appleton 12 year, and of course the butler can bring you anything you’d like to drink.
Wifi that works in the room
We’ve stayed in overwater villas before where the resort’s wifi didn’t reach our room. Our wifi was going strong the entire stay, we were even able to do a Facebook live tour.
Gorgeous White Sand Beach
Sandals St Lucian Grande has a gorgeous white sand beach that just steps away from the overwater bungalows.
Sandals St Lucian Grande
It will be hard to leave the overwater bungalow suites but make sure to check out great swim up bar and pools. You could easily have room service delivered for every meal but there are some amazing restaurants to check. Our favorite restaurants at Sandals St. Lucian Grande were Gordan’s on the dock has a great surf & turf, Soy has amazing sushi, and the Jerk Shack is must (get extra volcano sauce).
There are two Sandals properties with overwater bungalows in the Caribbean: Sandals St. Lucian Grande and Jamaica Sandals Royal Caribbean which would be great for a honeymoon in Jamaica. In case the St. Lucia overwater bungalows are sold out, check to see if there are any Jamaica overwater bungalows open. No matter which property you end up you’ll have an amazing time.
