Zen del Mar – A Mayan red spacious 7,500 square foot Villa has SEVEN large King bedroom-suites with five Mayan-marble bathtubs. Architect Udi Saly and designer Liz Conover renovated Zen in 2014 adding two grand Penthouse suites. Celebrities and Sports stars return to Zen del Mar for its direct ocean front privacy and superior guest services.
Zen del Mar can comfortably accommodate 14 to 18 guests. Zen del Mar may also be rented with its adjacent Villa, Casa del Sol Naciente on Jade Bay for larger groups.
Both villas are located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Jade Bay is a private oasis of personal Villas and an easy beach walk into the town of Akumal.
Zen, a walled estate from the small street, welcomes you with its handmade double hardwood doors. One enters the Villa with its imposing stone archway highlighting a glass window that soars 35 feet for its picture perfect view of the Caribbean Sea. Zen del Mar captures all Ocean views by subtle elevation and angle plays so everyone has a room with a great ocean view. The Living room, with two couches, opens up to a large exterior patio adjacent to the 60 foot long swimmers swimming pool. A Palapa style structure sits above the pool for double private massages or a yoga practice. The Dining room, Granite Kitchen and one King bedroom en-suite are located on the first floor. There are two dining areas, one inside and a large al fresco patio table with its covered roof providing views of both the garden and the Sea.
Up the wooden handrail you will find a balcony overlooking the garden and four King Bedrooms with bathrooms and bathtubs en-suite. A large ocean front private balcony adjoins the bedrooms so you can enjoy your Mexican coffee from your wooden lounge chairs. As global nomads, the owners made sure that each bedroom has its own design personality and is beautifully appointed with fine European linens and towels. Enjoy the books, movies and accessories chosen from their travels around the world as these are seldom found in a beach house
Two King Penthouse bedrooms at 1000 sq. feet and 1500 sq. feet occupy the top floor. Each room has a panoramic view of the Ocean, bathroom en-suite with a Mayan bathtub, shower and Mayan hammocks.
Akumal in Mayan means place where the turtles are born and Jade is one of their favorite beaches. Zen del Mar has a swinging bed on ropes nestled under a Palapa at the oceans edge, it is a coveted spot for reading a book or an afternoon nap.
Staff includes daily maid service and pool cleaning and maintenance. Security. Additional services are available upon request at nominal charges: Chef Services, Van & Driver, Massage therapist, Yoga instruction, Sailing, Scuba Diving, and Tours of the Mayan ruins.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We first came to Cancun as harried New York City executives seeking a weekend escape full of sun and sand. On each trip we drove further and further south, eventually falling in love with the area now called the Riviera Maya. Seeing a piece of property for sale on the beach, we used our dental floss to measure out the length of the site we wanted. We decided to buy it and proceeded to design and furnish our dream house. Since we both had demanding careers, we agreed to rent out our villa several times a year to a few friends. That was a decade ago. Since then, we have designed and built 10 other villas nearby for people who have similarly fallen under the Mayan spell. Many guests who have rented our villas have become friends — and then fellow villa owners themselves. As visitors and now part-year residents of this magical place, we are deeply committed to sustainable tourism. We are only too aware that in this place of great beauty, rich culture and natural wonder, many people struggle to make a living, and the environmental balance itself is threatened. The very name 'Akumal' means 'place of the turtles' — creatures that are, sadly in danger of extinction. .
