With great excitement, El Dorado Maroma, a resort located in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, announced that the construction of 30 overwater bungalows is currently taking place with an opening date of September 1st, 2016.

These water villas will join 128 on-land accommodation options as well as the existing restaurants, bars and resort activities. Once open, these will be the first overwater bungalows in the Cancun area, unless you include the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort just north of Playa del Carmen.

Current room choices

Currently, there are 11 different room choices making for a total of 128 rooms on-site, each situated on or right next to the beach. Though they each differ in size, number of guests allowed and amenities, each is detailed and styled to provide a luxurious stay. Even the smallest of the rooms includes a view, a king size or 2 double size beds, bathroom amenities including an in-suite Jacuzzi for two, a living area and an entertainment system.


Nightly room rates seem to hover around the US$700 to US$1,000 range, which leads us to believe that the overwater bungalow nightly rates will most likely be around the US$1,000 and higher a night mark. Once the overwater suites are in place and ready to book, we’ll update you with their nightly rates.

Resort amenities and activities

Noted as one of Travel Channel’s top 10 beaches in the world, Maroma Beach offers visitors a long stretch of polished white sand to enjoy alongside beautiful views of Mexico’s waters. In addition, the resort allows guests only a short walk to the beach itself from their chosen rooms, allowing for easily beach access throughout the day and into the night.


As you’re talking a little stroll on the sand, you’ll find a lovely surprise- the resort’s spa. Located directly on the sand and situated near the water’s edge, the spa is made up of 3 thatched-roof beach bungalows allowing for both natural light and ocean breezes to filter through as you enjoy your mid morning massage.


In addition to the spa, guests will find several different pools to enjoy, 6 restaurants and 4 bars, including a swim up pool bar. All of these amenities are within close walking distance to each and everyone of the resort’s rooms, making for a relaxing stay. If you’re traveling by boat, the resort also houses a marina where you’ll find adventure boats waiting to take you out for a day on the water.


Other amenities including tours, car rentals, a laundry service, both a tobacco shop and a jewelry store, medical services, money exchanges and wedding, honeymoon and anniversary packages. Activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, paddle-boarding, kayaking and other water sports.
