Palafitos Overwater Bungalows, Mexico

Palafitos Overwater Bungalows, Mexico

Bali has truly come to Mexico at Karisma’s Overwater Bungalows, where azure blue waters meet the gorgeous shoreline of Maroma Beach (voted by Travel Channel as one of the top 10 beaches in the world.) This adult only, all-inclusive experience, can only be described as a paradise.

The suites cross Bali with Mayan tradition in their style, with wooden carvings and traditional simplicity. Each suite offers breathtaking ocean views, glass-bottom floors, direct ladder access to the ocean, outdoor “Aguas del Amor” showers, private infinity pools, indoor Jacuzzis, and even oversized decks with lounge chairs that look out onto the ocean horizon.

Perhaps, most notable is the personal butler service each guest receives, with on-demand to assistance for everything from pre-arrival requests, to packing and unpacking, activity reservations. My personal favorite feature of service, was the exclusive Bali beach bed reservations with customized beach picnics, brought right to you.

Located on site is also the Náay Spa Over the Ocean, offering treatments based on traditional Mayan herbal practices and the richness of the region’s marine life, most notably highlighting the benefits of Maroma’s Sea Moss (known for its high antioxidant and detoxifying powers.)

Of course, a truly luxurious stay would not be complete without cuisine to match. The Gourmet Inclusive Over Water Ocean Grill & Wine Bar, overlooking the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, serves ocean inspired, gourmet cuisine for breakfast lunch and dinner, infused with pungent local flavors and ingredients.

And if you’re looking to mix up your daily experience, the Gourmet Inclusive® offerings at El Dorado Maroma are just a swift walk across the beach, comprising three pools, six premier restaurants, four bars, and a good range of resort activities to choose from (from dancing, yoga and beach volleyball to cooking lessons, kayaking and bocce.) Do as much or as little as you want at the resort; either way you will find what you came for at Palafitos Overwater Bungalows, especially if you came for a true “vacation.”
