Zen Del Mar, Akumal, Mexico
Villa Zen del Mar is a 4,800-square-foot masterpiece of modern Mexican design. Situated on a private sandy beach in Akumal’s Jade Bay, it has five bedrooms with en suite baths and comfortably sleeps up to 14. On the first floor are a king-size bedroom, living room, dining room, and large kitchen with breakfast bar; upstairs are four bedroom suites with large private bathrooms.
From the moment you glimpse this villa’s claret-red exterior, you’ll feel life’s stresses falling away. It’s no coincidence – after all, the Mayans believed this color promoted positive energy. The 350-square-foot living room features a massive zen rock, a gift from the sea, which proudly captures the spirit of this villa.
The house is cleverly designed to make you feel as if you are both indoors and outdoors at once. Sliding glass doors disappear into the walls, opening the way to a spacious lounging patio. Enter the 60-foot infinity pool with waterfall edge, and you’ll feel as if you’re already in the sea. Relax poolside on a mahogany chaise as you watch your kids safely splashing in the shallow area with two in-water loungers.
Enjoy a meal in the indoor dining room, with a unique double tree-trunk table made by local artisans. Outdoors, grill meat or fresh fish on the built-in charcoal barbecue and gather at the large artisan-crafted wooden table as you take in the ocean view. Snack on complimentary chips, salsa and guacamole every afternoon.
Have a complimentary massage in the Zen Spa Palapa, with its commanding view of the sea and pool. Quiet and serene, the palapa comes complete with hot and cold shower and sink—perfect for a rinse after a Mayan massage or mud treatment.
Ascend the stairway to the rooftop for the widest ocean vistas on Jade Bay. Here you will find a palapa-covered bar with two large couches. We’ll even put an air mattress on the outdoor bed so you can sleep under the moon and stars.
You can walk 10 minutes directly from the villa along sandy Jade Beach into the town of Akumal. Explore the beach in one of the two 2-person ocean kayaks available for your use.
The villa staff is there daily to take care of your needs. Our personal concierge can arrange for chef-prepared meals, professional massages, tour excursions, private yoga instruction, fishing, golf, child care and more (for just a nominal service charge).
Note: Villa Zen del Mar may be rented together with Casa del Sol Naciente - for corporate retreats or family reunions, it's a perfect alternative to a hotel!
"Our stay at Zen del Mar was fabulous. The 'Zen' allowed me to enjoy the nature of my core group of trusted friends that I long for in my hectic but wonderful world. All of the staff was so gracious. My appreciation beyond words! My CD—The Distance—is for you!" --Taylor Hicks
"This past week has been truly relaxing. All 13 of us are impressed with the accommodations Zen del Mar provided. Anything we needed was taken care of with finesse. Swimming with the dolphins was a huge hit with the children AND the adults. Going home will be tough, we will miss the swinging bed on the beach, morning kayaking in front of the villa and eating outside every day. The house is incredible in that we all found our own nook without having to leave. Massages in the Zen palapa was very peaceful with the sounds of waves; it sure beats a dark room with a sound machine. Thank you for sharing your home with us." --The Tanner family
"What a way to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, with our children and grandchildren all around us. What a beautiful villa, with all our needs met—and looking out at God's creation in all directions. This trip was planned by our oldest daughter, and it worked out so well. This has been an unforgettable experience in our life journey. We all thank you." --The Johnson family
