MIAMI — Karisma’s Palafitos overwater bungalows will be available for booking starting next month, six months in advance of their scheduled debut at the adults-only El Dorado Maroma.
According to Karisma, Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Consultants who have already sold El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Generations Resorts will be the exclusive sellers of the Palafitos from now until September 1, 2016, at 21% commission.
Karisma said it made the unprecedented move “as a thank you for the never-ending support of their dedicated travel agent partners.”
Currently under construction and surrounded by the bright turquoise waters of Riviera Maya’s Maroma Beach, the first phase of 30 suites will offer ocean views, glass-bottom floors, direct ladder access to the ocean, outdoor ‘Aguas del Amor’ showers, private infinity pools, indoor Jacuzzis and oversized decks with lounge chairs that look out onto the ocean horizon.
An overwater restaurant and tranquil spa will complete the exclusive experience. The Gourmet Inclusive Over Water Ocean Grill & Wine Bar will feature an open kitchen with scenic views of the Caribbean Sea for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including menu creations inspired by the ocean and a glass floor private dining room. Náay Spa Over the Ocean will comprise four spacious suites and guests will have the option of indoor or private outdoor treatments.
“El Dorado Maroma’s Palafitos – Overwater Bungalows are the most exquisite and unique suites in the entire region, with the ocean and renowned Maroma Beach literally at your fingertips. These are the first and only over-the-water offerings in all of Latin America, eliciting a one-of-a-kind experience for travelers seeking the ultimate luxury getaway whether it’s to celebrate a honeymoon, birthday, anniversary, or for no reason at all but to become immersed in nature and be pampered with the finest hospitality. It is an unforgettable must-visit destination,” said Armando Chomat, Executive VP of Premier Worldwide Marketing, worldwide representatives for Karisma Hotels & Resorts.
Services and amenities for Palafitos guests will run the gamut from 24-hour room service, exclusive beach beds, customized beach picnics and full butler service on-demand to assist with everything from pre-arrival requests, packing and unpacking, reservations, and delivery of complimentary sunscreen, reading materials, refreshments and gourmet bites while at the pool or beach. Rates start at US$665 per adult, per night.
