“Our 2nd Honeymoon in Paradise” Trip Report Index: Daraius:  We reached the hotel at 8:00 am, but it was too early to check-in.  I had negotiated an upgrade from a garden bungalow booked for 50,000 Hilton points for 1 night to a Panoramic Overwater bungalow for ~$200 per night.  I had requested bungalow #87 which is right at the end, so I was happy to hear that bungalow #87 would be prepared for us once the folks staying in it left.

Bungalow #87 is right at the end and is a bit more private than the other bungalows, but it is also more windy.

We freshened up in a transit bungalow, walked around the hotel and took pictures of the hotel and different room locations, had lunch and then checked into our bungalow at ~12:00 noon.

Here’s a video review of the bungalow and a view of the other bungalows near #87.

There was a large living room past the bathroom as you entered.

Our favorite spot was the deck of our 1st overwater bungalow!

There was a big deck with beautiful views of the lagoon.

There were 2 deck chairs to lounge on.

With a very peaceful view from them.

But the most exciting part of the deck were the stairs leading down to…

Daraius:  The best part about the room was the view and the private deck where you can go snorkeling or swimming in the ocean!  I could have looked at the water forever.

Emily Jablon:  There was even a place to shower by the lower deck.  Notice the solar panels at the top of the bungalow too.

We took a quick peak under the bungalow, and didn’t want to do that again!

Daraius:  In terms of privacy, bungalow #87 was right at the end.

But not entirely private since we could see the deck of bungalow 86 through our living room window.  Have a look at the video

The room also had a bed which was very comfortable.

The shutters in the bedroom opened which let in a nice breeze.

There was a glass bottom to see the fish, but we didn’t see any.  But it did make for a very pleasant experience.

Bungalow #87 is right at the end, so there are high winds outside.  We could hear them at night!  The water was also a bit chilly to go swimming in.

We got up at 6:00 am the next morning for our whale and dolphin watching expedition and could see the beautiful sunrise from our room!
