Category: Best 5 Star Overwater Bungalows in Cancun in 2023.
The term luxury overwater bungalows might seem something of an unnecessary embellishment seeing as underwater bungalows are almost always a luxury experience.
That being said though, some of you will want to be fully guaranteed the very highest standards in accommodation, service and facilities, and that means 5 Star standards.
We've done the research for you and so here now are our choices for, and reviews of, the best luxury 5 Star overwater bungalows & water villas in Cancun, Mexico in 2023.
Resorts with Overwater Bungalows in Cancun? There are only three!
Only three resorts near Cancun, and in Mexico in general, have overwater bungalows, and they are: Palafitos El Dorado, Rosewood Mayakoba and Banyan Tree Mayakoba. All three of which are just south of Cancun, in Playa del Carmen.
Of the three that do have them it is very difficult to judge which is better overall but we preferred the Palafitos bungalows at El Dorado as they have more of that traditional Polynesian vibe we have grown to like. Others though will doubtless prefer the sleek, modernity of both Rosewood Mayakoba's and Banyan Tree Mayakoba's.
Are they luxury resorts?
Yes, they are definitely luxury resorts - all three are 5-star in fact. Palafitos El Dorado is also adults-only and the only all-inclusive resort of the three. The Rosewood Mayakoba resort is family friendly but the overwater bungalows are for adults only. Banyan Tree then is family friendly - both the overwater bungalows and the resort in general.
Sounds wonderful! But what are prices like?Sadly prices are not cheap! Budget at least $1,000 USD per night for a stay in an overwater bungalow in Cancun.
