Highs & Lows

  • The largest private beach in the Riviera Maya, and one of the most beautiful in the world as far as I’m concerned .

  • Sexy, sensual vibe – Ibiza or Mykonos sans the party-til dawn ethos.

  • There's a Temazcal on property so you can sweat out the city.

  • Hammocks. Amen.

  • A natural rocky ledge raises the oceanfront cabanas from the sand resulting in some difficult terrain after a drink or two.

  • Not all casitas come with private bathrooms, be sure to book appropriately.
