PLAYA DEL CARMEN — Move a thatched hut out over the waves and it becomes the stuff of fantasy. It also becomes the stuff of honeymoons, as evidenced by the high profile among the betrothed of luxurious overwater lodgings in Bora Bora, Tahiti and the Maldives.
Newlyweds can now add Mexico’s Riviera Maya to the mix, with 30 new overwater “Palafitos” opening amongst the adults-only suites and villas at El Dorado Maroma resort.
Owner Karisma Hotels & Resorts initially heralded them as “Mexico’s first and only overwater bungalows,” but this was revised when it was pointed out that the nearby Rosewood Mayakoba offers “Overwater Lagoon Suites.” So the Palafitos became “the first and only over-ocean bungalows in Latin America,” with the “only” slated to expire in November when Jamaica’s Sandals Royal Caribbean opens five “Over-the-Water Villas.”
Is an overwater setting really such a romantic-getaway game-changer? On aesthetic and sybaritic levels, the Palafitos reply with an emphatic “yes!”
