9 Beaches

4 Daniels Head Lane
Sandys , Bermuda www.9beaches.com

You no longer have to travel halfway across the globe to sleep in an overwater villa. 9 Beaches brings these chic and simple bungalows to Bermuda (for a third of the price of those found in Polynesia). The 84 cabanas are really tent-cabin hybrids, constructed out of vinyl and canvas on aluminum frames. The sea-blue-and-white décor is charming, and the all-important basics are there: hot water, cold mini-fridge, electricity, air-conditioning, and a complimentary cell phone. You can rent one of the villas situated either hillside or oceanfront, but the overwater ones are clearly the most appealing. There’s a special Plexiglas fish-viewing panel set into the floor, and each night you fall asleep lulled by the quiet rhythm of gentle waves.
