Sexiest Honeymoon Overwater Villas in the Maldives (Part 1)

Overwater bungalows (OWB) are my number one request for romantic trips yearly; they are the most romantic honeymoon rooms in the world. But not all villas are the same. The Maldives is home to the world's largest and most stunning OWBs. I am going to countdown the sexiest honeymoon overwater villas in the Maldives. (I will break the list into two parts to add many extra pictures!) These are some of the most incredible villas in the entire world.


Prestige Water Villa with Pool

Jumeriah Maldives

The largest one-bedroom OWB at the resort, the Prestige Water Villa, perches over the pristine turquoise waters of the lagoon. It provides plenty of space to stretch out and sink into holiday bliss, with a spacious sundeck and infinity pool. The rooftop terrace is perfect for al fresco dining under the stars.


Villa Suite with Pool

Gili Lankanfushi

Unwind in open-air living and dining spaces or pursue sanctuary on the second-floor terrace. Distinct areas allow couples to come together or give them room to spread out or do nothing. An infinity pool emerges to drop into the ocean, giving guests the appearance of a never-ending swim lane.


Sunset Over Water Pool Villa

Anantara Kihava Maldives

The sunset over water pool villas occupies the prime West-facing area on the pontoon. Dine on your veranda with the panoramic vistas unfolding below you. Bathe in a sunken glass-bottom tub for two as the stars twinkle above you.


Ocean Residence

Milaidhoo Maldives

Discover an overwater paradise with breathtaking views. The Ocean Residence lies at the end of the lagoon jetty; it has a separate living area and bedroom with a gorgeous en-suite bathroom. A gym hides under the roof, providing space for workouts, yoga, and meditation sessions with an inspiring view. Outside on the expansive sundeck are a swing chair, sun loungers, and a freshwater infinity pool with steps down into the ocean below.


Overwater St Regis 1-Bedroom Suite

St Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort

Encounter a unique, bespoke experience at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort; enjoy an unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean from your private terrace. Reinvigorate your soul in your luxury villa, featuring a sparkling pool. Start your day with a rainforest shower or soak in your oversized tub.

I will reveal my top 5 OWBs for honeymooners in the next edition of this series. The villas get bigger and more luxurious in Part 2. Hard to believe, right? Will your favorite overwater bungalow make my list? You will have to come back and find out.
