    • I don’t know about the pricing, probably will be quite shocking once it’s posted. If you have a trusted travel agent I would ask them to track the info and let you know as soon as they know. Or, as I previously mentioned in response to another post, Karisma has a Preferred Partner travel agent program, and these travel agents would have the fast track on info related to the overwater palafitos. Maybe there’s one of those travel agents in your city who could help. Also, the person who gave me permission to post these photos is a travel agent and she just got back from there, I have a link to her FB page in the blog article with the pics. Hope this helps!

    • The only information I have is that it is slated to open June 2016. As to the exact date it will be open to guests or when it will be open for booking, I don’t know that information. This particular Karisma resort is pretty pricey and these palafitos will be in high demand, so it will definitely make a dent in one’s pocketbook. The individual who gave me permission to use these photos is a travel agent out of North Carolina (Amy Schwartz), she may have more specific information (there is a link to her FB page in the blog article with the pics). Or, there could be a travel agent in your city who is a Karisma Preferred Partner–they would probably have the most first-hand and recent information as to booking dates etc. Hope this helps!

      • They opened Sept 1 and there are some introductory deals. The normal cost is estimated as high as $5000 per night. I got a deal being a member and it was good until the first few months. Going in November should be great

  1. Did anyone stay in them yet? The water doesn’t look very clear on the picture with the glass bottom floor. Any pricing yet? How much for a week in one of the units?
    Thank you!

    • Darcie: Sorry for the delay, I just got back from Cancun on Sunday night. While I haven’t stayed in one of the overwater bungalows yet, they have been available for booking since September 2016. If you decide to book this room category, it’s probably best to remember Mexico is not Tahiti–I wouldn’t expect the water to be the same, but the room itself is quite lovely and the exclusive services for this room category look awesome and super convenient. As for the price, I just did a dummy booking on the Karisma site for Oct. 2017 and the rack rate was USD $1,900 per night for two; Karisma was having a promo for $1,300 per night for two. Very expensive. Perhaps to save money you may want to get in touch with Karisma vacation club members who often let other vacationers pay them to use their “weeks” during a given calendar year.

      • How would I get ahold of a Karisma travel member to use their weeks?
        sorry I have no idea on how to go about this.
        Thank you for the information. $1300 a night is still pretty pricey in my eyes for not being in Tahiti

        • Darcie: There was an individual who contacted me when the resort was first advertised and said she was a member and if anyone were interested in renting some weeks from her to let her know. Her first name is Gianna, and her email is Gborell21@gmail.com. Just tell her you got her name from the allinclusivegal blog. If she doesn’t respond, let me know and I will try to contact her. M.
