***THE SPACE***

The views --- the breathtaking views are the heart of Nahil penthouse. The master bedroom, master bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, infinity pool, and swim-up bar are all oceanfront. Situated on the secluded north end of this beautiful bay, Nahil penthouse overlooks the most spectacular stretch of turquoise water surrounded by coral reefs, powder white sands, and palm trees blowing in the breeze. From the bird's eye view of the penthouse you can literally see eagle rays and turtles swimming below, the occasional catamaran cruising by, and pelicans spying on you at eye level.

Decor --- from the moment you walk into Nahil penthouse you are struck with the delicate balance where ocean meets jungle, comfort transforms to beauty, and nature fades into elegance. This residence was custom designed to incorporate nature into a living work of art: showers made from corals, jungle trees sprouting from floor to ceiling, tiles embedded with fossils, and Mayan stones covering entire walls. Fall asleep to the lapping waves and wake up to nothing but Caribbean blue waters.

Bedrooms ---
The oceanfront master bedroom with its custom king size bed has an open layout where the main wall slides into itself, floor-to-ceiling double sliding doors open onto the terraza, and the over sized bathroom and double shower overlook the room and the brilliant turquoise waters below. Mayan stone walls, trees wrapped in strangler vines, corals sprinkled with shells, and natural slabs of wood are the building materials here.

The guest room overlooks the jungle treetops with a hanging king size bed made of natural trees and an en-suite bathroom laid-en with corals and shells.

The rooftop palapa loft can be configured for inflatable matteresses of one queen, two queens, one twin, or two twins for the kids or more adventurous travelers.

The two queen sized and two twin inflatable mattresses are also available for use in the living room (or dining room if you prefer).

Kitchen --- the kitchen is equipped with a six-burner gas stove, over-sized fridge with french doors and ice-maker, over sized dish sink with a separate vegetable washing sink, granite counter tops, breakfast bar, garbage disposal, dishwasher, washer/dryer, and drinkable water from the faucet and fridge.

Living room --- the living room has a large sectional sofa with chaise lounge, 46" flat screen with true surround sound, multi-media center preloaded with Netflix, Spotify, You Tube, docking station for your own music, and multi room audio and ceiling speakers in all rooms. The space is surrounded by mayan stone walls with original art, jungle vines, and polished flooring which spills out onto the vast terraza. Every evening the automated mood lighting comes to life as the sun fades away.

Private Rooftop Palapa ---
This is the most amazing space in the home. a 900 square foot private rooftop deck with dining seating, hammocks, lounge furniture, chaise lounge chairs, loft, sink, and bathroom. The views from up here are very special and it's the best place in Akumal to watch the sunsets!


***THE COMPLEX***

Pool & palapa--- a 15 meter infinity pool with jacuzzi-style seating, palm tree island, and sunken chaise lounges comprise some of the highlights. A spacious adjacent palapa is a great place to hide from the midday sun or enjoy a leisurely lunch.


***THE LOCATION***

Nahil is the only new condo complex in Akumal and is situated on an idyllic stretch of beach on Half Moon Bay. There are few tourists walking by since it sits at the end of the bay, but is still within walking distance to the best that half moon bay and Akumal have to offer. It's a 10 minute stroll down the sand to the best beach bar in the area, La Buena Vida. A short 5 minute stroll in either direction gets you to beachfront dining at La Lunita or Italian cuisine at the jungle setting of Que Onda. A mile by bicycle or car down the private road gets you back into the village of Akumal, along with its fabulous shops and restaurants (Lol-Ha, Turtle Bay, La Taverna, and Cueva de Pescador).

Akumal Bay is famous for its docile turtles that you can swim with all year round. Half Moon Bay is a world away from this bustling area with its privacy and beauty. Nahil is situated in front of the most beautiful part of the bay with the clearest water and liveliest reef. Other parts of the bay don't enjoy such amazing views, beauty, and access to the reef. Nahil's north end location allows the northerly winds to drive any flotsam or sargasso to the southerly end of the bay, thus keeping this stretch of beach and water immaculate.

An absolute "must-do" is to take a 5 minutes walk to the famous Yalku lagoon. This pristine lagoon is where cenotes and their fresh water meet the Caribbean sea, clashing in a unique setting of lush jungles and emerald waters. Wake up early for sunrise or wait until the main entrance closes and have the entire lagoon to yourself.

Akumal is 75 minutes south of Cancun, 30 minutes south of Playa Del Carmen, and 20 minutes north of Tulum. These cities have fantastic amenities but are not the romanticized secluded vacation spots as they are overpopulated with tourists, shops, and restaurants. If you want a "big" night out, these cities are only a short drive or taxi ride away from your hidden sanctuary.
