Vaulted eco resort villa near Papaya Playa

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5 baths
Casa Palapa is a stunning villa within the The Papaya Playa Project, a barefoot luxe retreat in the bohemian beach town of Tulum. Devoted to sustainability and harmony with the area's precious natural and cultural heritage, the resort offers extraordinary amenities, nightlife, and dining along with oceanfront residences designed with native materials, contemporary design principles, and ancient techniques. This 5-bedroom, 5-bath gem enjoys panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and direct access to the resort's beach, providing an ideal vacation rental for families and groups of friends seeking a balance of exquisite privacy and inspired community on one of Mexico's most enchanting shores.
Enjoy long days and evenings where the forest meets the sea, bathing in your fresh-water infinite swimming pool and lounging on canopied daybeds in the surf-scented breeze. Return from the beach in the afternoon and soothe yourself with a sunset dip in the jetted plunge pool.
The centerpiece of the villa is its spectacular pavilion, with its soaring, vaulted ceiling of rustic wood beams and pendant lanterns that cast an enchanting luminescence on your gatherings with loved-ones. A long dining table seats twenty, while an ample lounge is ideal for after-dinner drinks in the dreamy breeze. A fully equipped kitchen adjoins the dining area, and you can commission a private chef to cook memorable feasts of fresh, locally sourced delicacies.
The five bedrooms are spread out over two floors, each with private bathroom. The master suite, on the top floor, has a private terrace with expansive views of the jungle and sea. Two of the guest suites open to the terrace and one opens to the dining area, both connecting making it ideal for families. The elegant minimalism of the rooms, with their luminous white walls and linens and beautiful wood furnishings, engenders a soulful serenity for afternoon siestas and restful nights accompanied by the sea's eternal rhythms.
The Palapa Playa Project is a world unto itself, offering fabulous dining, lounge areas, music celebrations, and other activities and amenities, all infused with the same mission and spirit of harmony with the natural and cultural splendors the Riviera Maya. Your villa enjoys direct access to Papaya Playa Project and is minutes from the beach and famed ruins of Tulum.
