It’s one of the rules of life that, at some point—possibly even soon—you will go to Mexico. A bachelor party, a wedding, an ill-advised trip with that new girlfriend. It’s going to happen. And you’re going to need a place to stay.
Fortunately for you, our friends to the south just opened a compelling new place to stay in Riviera Maya: the Palafitos-Overwater Suites at El Dorado Maroma Resort.
If you need anything else, there’s a butler. Yeah. You get your very own butler, who will cater to whatever needs you might possibly have.
These overwater suites are actually bungalows, and the overwater descriptor is spot on. Think stilted legs, thatched roofs and the kind of aesthetic you typically associate with Bora Bora. Once you book a room for yourself (prices start at $950 per night), you’ve got a lot at your disposal. For starters, there’s the glass-bottom floor with views into the clear blue waters below. There’s the private ladder for getting from land to sea for a relaxing swim. You’ve got the oversized deck with lounge chairs and private infinity pool. That’s nice. And then even more aquatic luxuries like an outdoor shower and an indoor Jacuzzi for two. Plus all the privacy that having your own bungalow affords. So, what we’re saying is: Choose your companion carefully.
And all that’s just the actual bungalow itself. Because this new expansion of the hotel also means a new grill and wine bar for eating fresh fish, drinking drinks and enjoying your surroundings. And the overwater spa is where you’ll go for hard-earned massages.
If you need anything else, there’s a butler. Yeah. You get your very own butler, who will cater to whatever needs you might possibly have. Say you forgot sunscreen. Not a problem. Or maybe you want to have a picnic on the shore. Just ask. Or maybe a knock on the door signals the arrival of your in-room breakfast, when you suddenly remember that such things taste better with an ice cold martini, stirred clockwise 47 times and garnished with a cocktail shrimp. The butler’s on it.
