“…salvaged wood beams and wood-slab tables add an earthy vibe that echoes the natural surroundings.”
This superb beachfront villa is part of a collection of six similar properties with a privileged position on Tulum’s spectacular coast. Staying here, you’re just steps from Caribbean powder-sand beach, while also being surrounded by lush tropical flora. The villa itself boasts a fabulous rooftop terrace, together with elegantly earthy interiors and plenty of home-from-home comforts. Add helpful on-site staff and a nearby pool, and you have a dreamy Mexican hideaway made for an unforgettable holiday on the Mayan Riviera.
Sleeping up to eight guests, this three-bedroom air-conditioned villa is a great pick for larger groups or families. Its spacious, light-filled interiors are an artful beach-chic blend of customised touches and upcycled materials. Colourful floor tiles were made by artisans in Merida, while salvaged wood beams and wood-slab tables add an earthy vibe that echoes the natural surroundings. An airy open plan living space combines a kitchen, a lounge and dining area, where tall windows provide views of the lush jungle surroundings. This space also opens up to the outdoor patio with its tropical plant and bird life.
Head upstairs and the master bedroom is a particular treat. It features a superb vaulted palapa-style roof and private rooftop terrace complete with a double-headed outdoor shower. All three bedrooms come with an ensuite bathroom, and room one sleeps four with extra built-in bunk beds, perfect for kids – though also suitable for adults. There’s also a separate chill-out area on the rooftop patio where you can all gather gaze out over the coastal-jungle canopy with sundowners.
While the vibe is rustic-beach-life, you’ll still find plenty of upscale amenities here. All the beds come topped with high-quality linens from Oaxaca and bathrooms include organic honey-infused toiletries. The kitchen also comes fully equipped with a fridge-freezer, gas stove and oven, plus a Nespresso machine for your morning coffee. You’re also just steps from the shared, guests-only pool with its cascading water and there’s a breakfast and taco bar nearby too. You can order groceries online to your villa, as well as arrange for a chef to cook an authentic Mexican meal for your group. Wifi here is also free and fibre-optic quality.
Of course, you have a fabulous stretch of sandy coast on your doorstep too, and sea kayaks, paddle-boards and boogie boards are all available to borrow. The spiritually inclined can sign up for regular yoga and sound healing sessions that take place in the on-site yoga studio or nearby in a private cenote.
