Choose Wedding Venue
These private 5-star bungalows are suspended above the azure blue Caribbean Sea, right off the coastline of one of the World's Top 10 Beaches.

What’s more amazing than staying on one of the Top 10 Beaches in the World? Staying suspended over the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea in a 5-star luxury overwater bungalow. There’s nothing like Palafitos Overwater Bungalows in the rest of Mexico, making this a once-in-a-lifetime location for your dream destination wedding. Even better, the AAA Four Diamond resort is all-inclusive. Gourmet in-room dining, an indulgent overwater spa, and full butler service are all part of your stay.


Your wedding guests are in for the luxury vacation of a lifetime in the Overwater Bungalow, a 600-square-foot suite suspended above the Caribbean Sea.

Glass bottom floors and views of the ocean from your bed give guests an immersive experience. A ladder provides direct access to the water for swimming and kayaking, and a spacious terrace is the place to sunbathe or watch a breathtaking sunset, featuring a private infinity pool.

For the wedding couple, we recommend the Elite Overwater Bungalow, which will place you right at the end of the pier with unobstructed ocean views. In this suite, you’ll get to enjoy 24-hour gourmet dining and a personal butler.

Dining & Drinks

As part of your all-inclusive destination wedding at Palafitos Overwater Bungalows, you’ll have access to gourmet dining experiences from around the world.

Over the Water Grill and Wine Bar features a glass floor and open kitchen, serving exquisite seafood dishes. Dine on delicious Italian Cuisine at Mio Cucina Italiana, or try authentic Peruvian delicacies at Lima Limon.

For a taste of Mexican-Caribbean fusion cuisine, dine at Sabores. There are 4 bars at El Dorado Maroma Resort just on shore, including 3 swim-up bars.

Activities & Entertainment

When you’re done lounging in the sun on your private terrace, there is a range of exciting activities on offer as part of your all-inclusive package. Explore colorful coral reefs by snorkeling, or take a kayak adventure on the open sea.

The resort offers classes in authentic Mexican cooking, Latin dancing, and Spanish. Vibrant nightly entertainment includes live music, acrobats, karaoke competitions, and lots more!


When staying in a Palafitos Overwater Bungalow, you’ll have your own plunge pool to cool off in, a private indoor hot tub for total relaxation, and the brilliantly blue Caribbean Sea to swim in.

At the El Dorado Maroma just on shore, there are 4 sparkling outdoor pools with luxury cabanas to lounge in while enjoying pool butler service.

The fitness center on-site features state-of-the-art equipment, as well as classes in aerobics and yoga. Experience a truly unforgettable couples massage at the overwater Naay Spa, where they use Mayan herbal traditions and the famous antioxidant-rich Maroma Beach sea moss.
