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 very bumpy—road through the biosphere reserve. The villa has four bedrooms and is deigned to accommodate up to eight adults. (10 if two couples are willing to share a bedroom). 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 a state-of-the-art solar energy system as well as fresh 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.
