Property description

Casa Almaviva, a fully-staffed, private oceanfront estate, located in the pristine Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, 45 minutes south of Tulum. Revitalize your mind, body, and spirit in this luxurious oasis deep in the Mayan jungle.

Sian Ka'an is the largest protected nature preserve in Mexico's Maya Riviera, world renown for its unique wetlands and unparalleled biodiversity. The name Sian Ka'an means “where the sky is born” in Maya. The Mesoamerican Reef—the world's second largest—is just a short swim from the beachfront directly outside your doorstep.

Savor the breathtaking sunrises over the Caribbean, and enjoy gourmet meals prepared by David, your personal chef, underneath the palapa in the open air great room. The refreshing ocean breezes keep you comfortable throughout the day.

From the villa's roof-deck, witness gorgeous sunsets over the vast Sian Ka'an jungle as birds glide above the treetops. Then rekindle your sense of wonder as you gaze upon the expansive night sky, just as the Mayans did from this very spot a millennia ago.

Whether you spend your days exploring the abundant nature and historic treasures nearby, or simply relaxing and enjoying the solitude of your private beach, Casa Almaviva is he perfect setting for an unforgettable experience!


Jungle Getaway

The villa is situated on nearly three hectares of lush jungle, just 30 meters from the sea. It's an ideal place for relaxation, communing with nature, and enjoying the company of your traveling companions. Visitors typically rent a car at the airport and drive to Tulum (90 minutes) before heading through the beautiful—and sometimes bumpy—road through the biosphere reserve. The villa has four bedrooms and is deigned to accommodate up to eight adults. The beds and linens are all hotel quality. Free WiFi is available throughout the house, and there is a Bose sound system in each bedroom, and SKY satellite TV. All meals are prepared by the onsite chef. Filtered drinking water is also provided. The villa features many indoor and outdoor seating areas to enjoy the ocean vies and starry skies.


An Ecologically Conscious Retreat

Casa Almaviva was designed and built according to the strict environmental regulations that govern construction within the Sian Ka'an preserve. Our aim is to minimize the ecological impact of the lodge, while still providing a luxurious jungle experience. The house is equipped with solar energy and rainwater collection. Air conditioning is available, but rarely used due to the pleasant sea breezes.

The house features eco-friendly linens, towels, bathrobes, soap, shampoo and conditioner, insect repellent, and sunscreen. The laundry is washed in Tulum, because detergents are not permitted in the biosphere reserve.

Like many places along the Maya Riviera, sargasso (seagrass) floats near the shore, infusing the sea with nutrients that have been studied for their many therapeutic benefits. Depending on the weather, this seagrass sometimes accumulates on shore. While this helps prevent erosion, it can also interfere with the sea turtles who nest nearby. For the comfort of our guests, our staff works to clear the seagrass from the villa’s beachfront using methods recommended by the biologists of Amigos de Sian Ka’an.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My name is Todd, born and raised in New York, I now make my home in Brooklyn. Many people don't realize how many beaches there are around New York, but when I was growing up, my family would always spend our summer days on Fire Island or at Montauk, Jones Beach and Coney Island.

Why Tulum:
I have traveled the world and seen some amazing sights. Sian Ka'an is special. It's natural beauty and abundant wildlife are world famous. And the sky sure is beautiful. But there's something else that's harder to describe. When you visit Sian Ka'an you feel a deep personal connection to the natural world, and also a sense of the long arc of time. I always imagined that someday I'd live in another country. But life always kept me close to home in New York. Then I found Casa Almaviva.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Unbelievable sunsets over the lagoons, amazing star gazing, unique Caribbean experience away from the crowds.
