You Don’t Have to Fly Around the World for Overwater Bungalows

Karisma Hotels and Resorts has a prestigious reputation within the travel industry, owed to its roster of award-winning luxury hotels. It was only a matter of time before the brand extended its portfolio to feature Mexico’s first-ever overwater bungalows at its Riviera Maya property, El Dorado Maroma, a Beachfront Resort.

Believe us, you’ll want to experience this, and here’s why:

It’s all about location, and Karisma Hotels and Resorts didn’t hold back when deciding to dock the bungalows off of Maroma Beach – ranked one of the top 10 in the world by Travel Channel.

Maroma is only 30 minutes from Cancun; however, 500 acres of beach and rainforest shelters it from the tourist-laden area — making it feel like a best-kept secret.

Luxury and exclusivity go hand in hand, and with only 30 bungalows, the resort offers an intimate experience as well as exceptional one-on-one service by assigning a dedicated Majordomo to tend to each guest’s needs.

The suites have been meticulously designed to immerse guests in their Caribbean surroundings. Each features an oversized deck outfitted with lounge chairs, a private infinity pool and outdoor “Aguas del Amor” shower.

Inside, guests are treated to a two-person Jacuzzi and sea views from all angles, including glass-bottom floor tiles.

Not your average all-inclusive, Palafitos labels its dining experience as “Gourmet Inclusive.” The overwater restaurant, only available to bungalow residents, serves a sea-inspired menu accompanied by premium cocktails and unparalleled ocean views. Those staying more than five nights can indulge in a privately catered meal served on their bungalow sundeck.

As part of the El Dorado Maroma Resort, Palafitos has direct access to all of the amenities offered on the mainland, which include three pools, six world-class restaurants, four bars and the same level of impeccable service.

            Hi Penny – Contact me at my phone number is there. Right now prices are much lower than people think.

    • Film Incentives 101

      $1300 a night for water bungalow or $2300 that with one that has full ocean view.

      • Denise LaChapelle Elmquist

        I’d stay for 1300 but I can’t afford more than two nights
        plus the airfare and transportation is extra plus tips gets pretty spendy for us regular folks!!!!

        • Jonathan Jacobs

          Actually, the private round-trip transportation is included right now. Tips are fully included – it is an all-inclusive, meaning food and drinks are included to. Only thing that would be extra would be the spa. Maybe some other upgrades if you choose. You also get full access (food and drinks) at the El Dorado Maroma.

    OMG $2000 a NIGHT?!?! That’s crazy!!

  • Shana Brand Nu Gramby

    yea this is great because its closer than going to Bora Bora but its still expensive AF. My Fiance and I were going to go for our honeymoon but $2k a night is more than our mortgage. #Priorities

    • Jonathan Jacobs

      Most nights are about $1300-1700 – still expensive, but not as bad 🙂

    • MD
