Have you ever been to Maldives or do you plan on travelling here? If so, you are sure to have heard of Overwater Bungalows. But, if you are new to travel and would like to know more about these living spaces, read on.
What is an overwater bungalow?
As the name suggests, these are bungalows that have been built over the water, but rather close to the shores. This way guests can reach the main resort building easily.
Where did overwater bungalows or villas first appear? The answer would be in French Polynesia back in the 1960s. The idea then spread faster and reached the east where 5 star hotels in Maldives have now adapted this as well.
Are they safe
Yes, overwater villas at hotels like Saii Lagoon Maldives are completely safe as the pillars that hold them are rooted deep into the sand.
On the outside, overwater bungalows may look quite rustic, but walk inside and you’ll find luxuries like no other. It definitely does not come cheap either!
