If you are a luxury beach holiday junkie, you may find water bungalows too overrated. Sure, you can find thousands of them in Maldives, Bora Bora, Cebu… you name it. Every one of them is built over the water, yes, and you can see the sea, horizon and the gorgeous sunset.

So what’s so special about water villas in Bali?

In fact, technically, there are no over-water bungalows in Bali that are built on the sea. According to the Indonesian law, all sea surrounding the country belongs to the government, so no hotel or resort can be built over the public water.

But of course, many resorts have found ways to get around this rule, constructing water villas with private lagoons and pools.

And – you won’t believe this – some of these water villas are actually more magnificent than your regular over-water bungalows. You’ll see why.

Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.

4. Glass-bottomed bedroom at Bambu Indah

You’ve heard of glass-bottomed boats to be sure, but have you ever seen a glass-bottomed bedroom like this?

This room (Udang House) at the eco-luxury resort Bambu Indah in Ubud sits on a shrimp pond, and its tempered glass floor panels allow you to be conscious of sleeping on top of the water, literally.

Before you snooze, you can watch the fish swim by. The underwater world is right beneath your bed.

And if that’s not close enough to nature, you can also bathe under the stars (or sun) – in its glass-tiled bathroom.
