    Overwater bungalow are all the rage right now. After all, who wouldn’t want to spend their vacation in a luxurious over-the-ocean suite?

    The downside one usually comes across when looking to book one of these, however, is just how far away and costly it can become. If you live in the United States, getting to Bora Bora, the Maldives, or Fiji could run up to over 24 hours in travel time, with hefty airline prices to match.

    The good news is, that’s all about to change. This September, the first Overwater Palafitos are debuting in Riviera Maya, Mexico at El Dorado Maroma, by Karisma. Just a short plane ride away, these bungalow style suites will be over the water, and out of this world.

    Each “Palafito” will feature glass bottom floors, private infinity pools, direct ladder access to the ocean, an oversized patio deck, an indoor Jacuzzi, and the signature “Aguas Del Amor” outdoor shower. The Overwater Bungalows will also come with exclusive access to a waterfront restaurant and spa, and special butler service that you won’t find anywhere else (think breakfast-in-bed every morning and pre-dinner drinks).

    Furthermore, El Dorado Maroma is part of the Karisma Gourmet Inclusive Experience. Voted by Travel Channel as one of the top 10 beaches in the world, El Dorado Maroma not only features a lively marina with excursions, but 3 swimming pools, 6 restaurants and bars, and a lush walkable property. You can read more about El Dorado Maroma here.

    Rates for the Palafitos Overwater Bungalows start at $665 per person per night and are bookable now for travel starting in September.  View more info here.

    We. Can’t. Wait.
