What are the best tropical cabana resorts?

I want to stay in a cabana on stilts, with margarita in hand, in a tropical location. Got any ideas?

Punta Caracol Acqua Lodge, Panama
Located in the island town of Bocas del Toro, Punta Caracol is almost exactly the way you’d dream up a cozy overwater cabana resort. It consists of nine brightly colored two-story thatch-roofed huts, strung together by a wooden walkway. There are no TVs or internet connections, electricity comes from solar panels, and the activities on-site are limited to swimming off your porch, kayaking, or lazing on a hammock with a book. Rates start at $316.
