Yes, that’s my recommendation. You just need a tag that is for groups of

Archipelagos are mapped as multipolygon relations tagged with
place=archipelago, name= and type=multipolygon. This makes it easy to
search for, does not duplicate the place=island tags on each island, and
can be rendered with existing tools.

A named group of lakes is similar to a water equivalent of an archipelago
(especially if they are not connected by rivers)
