Think you have to travel across the globe to stay in an overwater bungalow? Think again. You don’t have to fly to Tahiti or Bora Bora for this bucket-list experience anymore, as overwater bungalows have debuted in the Caribbean, on islands including Jamaica and St. Lucia.
There are also options for overwater bungalows in Mexico — and they’re even all-inclusive. Just hop a direct flight to Cancun (offered from more than 20 U.S. cities) and check in to El Dorado Maroma, a Beachfront Resort, by Karisma in the Riviera Maya. The resort has unveiled these amazing overwater bungalows in the Mexican Caribbean. Here’s a look inside the property.
El Dorado Maroma, an adults-only, all-inclusive resort has debuted overwater bungalows in the Riviera Maya. Called Palafitos, these overwater accommodations are located on Maroma Beach, one of Travel Channel’s top 10 beaches in the world.
“El Dorado Maroma’s Palafitos are the most exquisite and unique suites in the entire region,” says Armando Chomat, executive vice president of Premier Worldwide Marketing, the representatives for Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “These are the first and only overwater offerings in all of Mexico, eliciting a one-of-a-kind experience for travelers seeking the ultimate luxury getaway whether it’s to celebrate a honeymoon, birthday, anniversary, or for no reason at all but to become immersed in nature and be pampered with the finest hospitality. It is an unforgettable must-visit destination.”
Each suite features a glass-bottom floor, a private infinity pool, an indoor Jacuzzi tub, an outdoor shower, a ladder for direct ocean access and an oversized deck with lounge chairs, perfect for sipping margaritas. (Did we mention they’re included?)
Whatever your heart desires, just ring your personal butler who can bring you everything from cocktails to sunscreen to reading materials. The red-carpet treatment includes 24-hour room service, assistance with packing and unpacking, pre-arrival requests and customized beach picnics with full butler service.
The new overwater restaurant, Over Water Ocean Grill & Wine Bar, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and features panoramic views of the Caribbean. For a special occasion, book the stunning private dining room with a glass floor.
Another new addition is the Náay Spa Over the Ocean offering Maya-inspired treatments that incorporate Maroma’s sea moss, known for its antioxidant powers. Opt for your treatment indoors or outdoors to take in the amazing scenery.
Guests staying in Palafitos can also take advantage of the amenities offered at the resort, with three pools, six restaurants and four bars, plus daily activities like yoga, beach volleyball and cooking lessons.
