Akumal condo description

Lugar en el Sol (Place in the Sun) is a new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in an gorgeous luxury resort setting on the Caribbean Coast of Riviera Maya, Mexico. The condo is located in the unique residential community of TAO Inspired Living, committed to balanced living and total well-being through a mind-body-spirit theme. This comfortable condo, located in Gran Bahia Principe Golf Resort & Spa, is on the second floor of the 3 story, contemporary building surrounded by lush vegetation.

Lugar en el Sol features two bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, a relaxing living room, and fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and a terrace balcony (for outdoor dining and/or relaxing). Condo comes with a smart TV with Cable (English and Spanish channels), Roku, a blue-ray DVD player, laptop (for you to use) and WiFi.

The TAO complex offers an unsurpassed way to relax in one of the most beautiful regions of the world. TAO is a safe community that feels remote and secluded, yet provides a dynamic atmosphere with endless local options for recreation, culture, dining and the arts. (To learn more visit: www.taoinspiredliving.com )

Lugar en el Sol is completely turnkey with all dinnerware, linens and towels included. It comfortably sleeps up to 5 and features open plan living. The well equipped kitchen has a granite breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and enclosed washer and dryer for easy vacation living. Choose to dine in, or check out the local restaurants in the area, or purchase an optional all-inclusive meal plan at the resort--for your entire stay or for just one day. (for more information about cost and how to arrange getting and 'all-inclusive wrist band', please contact me)


Lugar en el Sol is decorated in a calm, casual modern style. All interior spaces are cooled with ceiling fans and air conditioning.

TAO Resort amenities include the onsite holistic TAO Wellness Center offering programs in fitness, inner peace, personal development, creative arts and lifelong learning classes. At the Tao Wellness Center you can engage in wellness-focused programs and a host of holistic services including:

• two salt-water lap pools
• a fitness center
• Yoga
• a healthy snack bar
• an eco-boutique
• an amazing Temazcal (sweat lodge)
• a selection of rejuvenating therapies
• and much more

The Center also hosts global retreats in its event facilities led by celebrated authors and teachers such as Don Miguel Ruiz, Gregg Braden and Jack Canfield, among others. (http://www.taoinspiredliving.com/events-and-experiences# )

As a guest, you will have access to a private homeowner’s beach club on a pristine beach offering shaded loungers, drinks, snacks and towels.

You can play a round of golf (at a significant discount) on the surrounding world-class 27-hole Robert Trent Jones II championship golf course, recently rated 3rd best in the country, with a 100,000 square foot clubhouse.

Regularly scheduled shuttles are available to transport you around the resort and to the beach.

You can enjoy the beach facilities, the water park and slides, and a couple of evening shows. The beach was great and has a very safe lagoon. You can just 'hang-out' without getting an 'all-inclusive wristband' but be sure to bring your own beach towel if you don't do the all inclusive as the Bahia only provides towels to wristband holders.

Lugar en el Sol at TAO is a unique destination for relaxation, healing, creative and spiritual inspiration where you can be complete without leaving the resort. Perfect for family getaways or a romantic retreat for couples.

It could also serve as your base camp for experiencing an abundance of eco and jungle adventures, exploring ancient sites, underground caves and rivers, diving at the world’s second longest barrier reef or discovering a series of amazing beaches, lined with authentic Mexican or trendy new restaurants, shops and galleries.

• Visit the Tulum Ruins, the awe inspiring ancient Mayan ocean side city (http://www.tulumruins.net)

• Book a tour at the Tao Wellness Center or pick up a rental car at the Cancun airport and explore the variety of towns and villages along Highway 307 as you travel south, such as Playa del Carmen with the longest pedestrian street in Latin America (or South Beach) or the island of Cozumel.

• Visit Akumal, home of expats and turtle nesting sites, and Tulum, a tourist hot-spot known for its top 10 beaches

• In Riviera Maya, you can create your own vacation experience! To learn more about things to do here, visit: http://travel.usnews.com/Tulum_Mexico/Things_To_Do

Lugar en el Sol is a beautiful setting surrounded by sacred sites, natural beauty, and an abundance of attractions located in the heart of ancient Mayan culture, a perfect retreat for a week, a month or a season.

Enjoy a relaxing vacation in your place in the sun!
