There are two overwater bungalows in Mexico, and both offer amenities straight from your wildest tropical vacation fantasy. Think personal butlers, private pools and your own garden terrace leading straight to the ocean. While these overwater bungalows don't come cheap — you'll pay over $1,000 nightly — they're perfect for lovers, honeymooners and anyone looking for a tropical experience they'll never forget.
Both of these overwater bungalows are located on the southeastern tip of Mexico, on the edge of the Caribbean sea. You'll want to fly into Cancun, which is a two-hour flight from Miami.
Each of these resorts is 5-star, adults only and all-inclusive. In other words, leave your continental worries behind and relax into some truly royal treatment.
You'll feel like a million bucks at the Palafitos overwater bungalows. These dreamy suites have glass-bottom floors so you can see straight through to the blue waters below. Take a dip in your private infinity pool or hot tub before rinsing off in the outdoor shower aptly called Aguas del Amor, which translates to waters of love.
A personal butler attends to your every need, and there's even a dressing service before dinner in case you need help zipping a zipper or tying a tie. There's even a restaurant above the waves, called Overwater Ocean Grill & Wine Bar. You'll be in heaven on earth as you indulge in gourmet food and drink while watching the sunset over the Caribbean.
If you decide to leave your bungalow, there's lots to do around El Dorado Maroma, like paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling. And if water sports aren't your idea of a good time, there are tequila tastings, cooking classes to take and live shows to enjoy.
If you're into slow living, minimalist design and hand-crafted artisanal furniture décor, you'll fall head-over-heels in love with the deluxe overwater lagoon suites at Rosewood Mayakoba. Soak up the sun on your private lounge terrace that overlooks the emerald jungle and azure lagoon before cooling off in the plunge pool.
Of course, you could simply jump straight into the lagoon. Your call.
We also love that Rosewood Mayakoba prioritizes sustainability. Upon arrival, you'll be transported to your suite by electric boat, and you can zoom around via electric golf cart or bicycle on dry land. You won't find plastic straws at Rosewood Mayakoba, and when you dine at one of its eight restaurants or bars, you'll be eating locally sourced ingredients.
Nature lovers should sign up for a wildlife eco-tour, which brings you up close with Mexico's diverse wildlife — including sea turtles — on 620 acres of private wilderness.
