We have all seen the amazing videos of luxury overwater bungalows in exotic places like Bora Bora and the Maldives. Mexico now has its first, and so far only, luxury overwater bungalows in Riviera Maya, more specifically at Maroma Beach in Playa del Carmen. El Dorado Maroma, an adults-only resort in Riviera Maya, opened for a truly unique luxury experience in Mexico this September. The Palafitos at El Dorado Maroma is the ultimate when it comes to a luxury experience for a romantic getaway no matter the reason. Celebrating a special occasion such as a honeymoon, anniversary, birthdays or simply having that luxury vacation you have always dreamt of.

The accommodation style with overwater bungalows is new to Mexico where vacation destinations like Bora Bora, the Maldives, Fiji, and Tahiti have been the places to go. This could easily become a new trend for luxury beach resorts in Riviera Maya such as Playa del Carmen or the Cancun hotel zone.

    1. Hi, Sandra. So far I haven’t seen any prices under the $650 mark for the overwater bungalows. The resort is quite new and has received a fair amount of media attention. Right now they are all sold out (according to – and that’s with a price tag of $1700 per night. Best bet is to keep an eye out for a great offer if your dates are flexible.
      Our hotel price checker has been updated and now includes prices on the overwater bungalows. I will update the article very soon with the information.
