Adults only overwater huts in Riviera Maya, Mexico
The follow are overwater bungalows, I would call them as ‘overwater huts’; the thatched roof gives that impression though there may be another inner roof beneath it.
Well, these overwater huts or overwater villas that are meant only for adults are part of various types of accommodations provided by the Eldorado Spa Resorts in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, the world’s 4th ranked beautiful resort.
The Riviera Maya requires no introduction to the rich and famous; the bold and beautiful. The entire beach city in Mexico is expensive, the food, the accommodation, the fun, and frolic-all require you to pay without batting an eyelid. You are supposed to be rich there or at least act rich.
This blog post is a review of this all-inclusive five-star gourmet and spa resort called Eldorado Maroma.
One other online review site named this adults-only overwater huts as, “all-suite, all-butler, and all-gourmet”.
I think that spells what sort of this beach resort is, where you get pampered at every minute of your stay. Whatever attention by a butler you have dreamed of thus far, will be realized at Eldorado Maroma Spa Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Let us go over what kinds of accommodations are offered so that you can decide what suits your dream and book accordingly.

Before you look into other types of suites and bungalows in Eldorado Maroma Spa Resort, let us first visit the “overwater bungalows” that is the subject line of this blog article.
Locally an overwater bungalow or literally the floating huts are called “Palafitos”.
Here is an aerial view of these adults-only floating rooms:
The design is creative with free movement as the theme. All the overwater bungalows are interconnected through a pier that makes it easy for a group of families who have rented more than one floating hut.
There are more than 20 over-ocean villas that come with great comforts. Let us go over the amenities of these overwater huts in Eldorado Maroma:
- Apart from having all of the Caribbean seas to yourself, every overwater hut has a private infinity pool that seems to merge with the Caribbean sea seamlessly.
- Of course, you can see as far as your eyes can feast on the Caribbean sea without a speck to block your view.
- The floor of the floating rooms is made of glass so that you know what is beneath your feet. Spend hours watching the myriad marine life that is unaware of someone is looking over them.
- Every room is fitted with a ladder through which, you can descend to the sea.
- A sprawling wooden deck to watch the sunrise.
- Take a fresh-water shower from the outdoor shower cubicle. This freedom cannot be enjoyed except in these types of over-sea bungalows.
- Inside your floating cottage, there is a Jacuzzi.
- You are allocated a butler exclusive for you. I am sure this is one aspect of your dream. Stretch your laziness to the maximum.
- There is a dining area inside the cottage.
- A fridge stocked with drinks and beverages.
- Make your own Mexican coffee with the help of a coffee maker.
- An exclusive restaurant meant only for the overwater bungalow guests.

All the El Dorado Villas are of a duplex type. An entire family or two can stay in one villa as there are as many as 5 bedrooms!
To attend to your needs and whims, there is a butler on call, exclusively for you.
You are given separate access to the Caribbean beach where beach beds would be ready for you laid out neatly on a chaise.
Look at the bedroom inside the Eldorado Maroma villa.
Aesthetically decorated and painted, the beds look massive and super soft-eh?
Apart from a pool at the ground level, there is one more on the first floor!
Jacuzzi Junior Suite
A private Jacuzzi and that too in your own room is certainly a luxury. It gives a sense of freedom to walk into the Jacuzzi as and when you like and however you are dressed. These minor freedoms are called real luxuries and they matter much to us-right?
In addition, this Junior Jacuzzi suite is located very close to the main swimming pool and its adjoining swim-up bar. Oh, I think you will feel like you have just moved into a paradise.
I am sure this beachfront suite will be up in a premium during winter when the temperature drops to 20 deg and you would want the sun on your back (and front too) as much as possible. Your room that faces the Caribbean Ocean and is stone’s throw away from the beach; you can soak up in the solar-powered warmth anytime you wish.
In addition to the proximity to the beach, your bedroom opens on to a large terrace for ocean gazing.
Villa for honeymooners
In whichever you resort you stay, be it a beachfront resort or a resort facing a canyon, or a suite in a ski resort, there would be something special for the honeymoon couples-right?
Wither it is a first honeymoon or second, honeymooners are always treated specially, mainly to lure them to celebrate a honeymoon every year and to entice to them to return the same resort.
The image of the honeymoon suite above spells it all. A villa just abutting the beach is indeed a special one. Privacy is the most deemed luxury for honeymooners-eh?

Let us now move onto another important aspect of your vacation in anywhere you choose to stay-the food.
Food and drinks at Eldorado Maroma Spa Resort.
After reading below about the restaurants and bars in Eldorado Maroma Spa Resort, you will nod your head acknowledging the reason for this Mexican resort that is voted as one of the top ten ultra-luxury beach resorts in the world.
I think you would have already acknowledged it after looking at the various types of accommodations including the adults-only floating villas right on the Caribbean Ocean water.
There are as many as 5 bars with a different theme and 6 restaurants that offer different cuisine Asian cuisine which is worlds apart from Mexico.
- Caribbean Grill on the terrace
You are served a mixture of Mexican and Caribbean cuisine. I guess the difference between the two cuisines will be minor and ignorable.
- Asian food in a restaurant called Kiyoko
Sounds like a Japanese name but I suppose you don’t get to eat an all-Japanese fare. Your food will contain flavors of Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.
- Enjoy Peruvian cuisine at Lima Limon
Shall we call it ‘Inca’ Cuisine’? I guess not as after all, that civilization is quite ancient. I don’t think they would have passed on their types of food preparation for their offspring generation.
Maybe the Eldorado Maroma resort would serve Amaranthus, ceviche and several tubers that look like a potato.
Modern Peruvian cuisine is said to be a mixture of Mexican, Asian, and Japanese. What a fusion!
It is interesting and I think I will write an exclusive article about Peruvian cuisine and drinks.
- Italian cuisine at Mio Cuccina Italiana
The website of Eldorado Spa Resorts mentions a few seafood dishes and gave them Italian names:
- Frutti di
Garnished with raw vegetables?
- Apitos Gourmet Club serves International cuisine
- Mexican food at Sabores
Drinks, cocktails, and mocktails:
Bar 24 is a swim-up bar
I saw people reach for mocktails and martinis in a swim-up bar.
Just after a couple of laps, the swimmers could not resist the urge to grab for a drink while still staying on the water, leaning on the pool’s edges. Familiar sight-right?
Chakay must be a Mexican or Peruvian name and this bar is also a poolside bar. I wonder why there are more bars by the poolside than on a terrace or in air-conditioned rooms!
Mio is one more swim-up far facing the Caribbean Ocean. The bartender takes pride in demonstrating his drink mixing skills. Maybe you can pick a trick or two.
This bar giving you a panoramic view of the Caribbean ocean is located on the fourth floor.
I think this bar would receive the least patronage because it is a self-serve bar. I am of the firm opinion that the guest would like their drinks served at their tables with a bow and a smile of course.
This winds up an in-depth review of Eldorado Maroma Spa Resort’s various accommodations including the overwater bungalows meant for adults only, their 6 different restaurants serving 6 different cuisines and 5 bars located at various places inside this Mexican beach resort.
It can be an expensive stay all right here but after reading through, don’t you think it is worth it?
