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?

Coral Lodge, Panama
You won’t find a more remote getaway than Coral Lodge. The resort, on the fringe of the San Blas Islands on the Caribbean Coast, is only reachable by a half-hour boat ride. Once there, you’ll find six overwater thatch-roofed huts, each adorned with a hammock on the front deck and stairs that lower into the water. You can snorkel among the coral in the clear shallows, laze on the beach or poolside, take a day-long dive trip, or never leave your cabana. You choose. Rates start at $105 per night.
