A bungalow honeymoon retreat is the ultimate hidden and romantic getaway. Forget a beach-side resort filled with handfuls of other honeymooners or a city adventure where you're crammed in a hotel with hundreds, a bungalow gives you the most intimate and private setting possible for your dream honeymoon. We couldn't invent a more idyllic moment: the two of you, on your deck, detached from the rest of the world. Here, four top resorts that should make your bucket list:
French Polynesia is the birthplace of the overwater villa, so expect magic. At the St. Regis Bora Bora, yours has a window in the floor, so you can watch the aquatic action without getting out of bed. No need to; a butler will bring all the bubbly you need.

Each oversea villa at One & Only Reethi Rah is set above a lagoon and connected to the isle by a private walkway, so no one will interrupt your days of bliss.

Likuliku is one of the only spots in this South Pacific island chain where you can sleep in a traditional thatched-roof bure (bungalow) above the sea.

Plus, one more to keep an eye on:
Want to do the overwater thing two hours from the East Coast? Next year, 9 Beaches Resort emerges from a $55 million renovation, villas on stilts included. We're betting it's going to be worth the wait.
