History has it that thousands of years ago a great Mayan lord Ek Balam (meaning “black Jaguar”) founded one of the biggest cities of Mayan civilization.
It thrived for centuries, but then was abandoned and lost in the jungle. And while you may not get a chance to visit this place, you can still spend your vacation in a unique villa, designed by the famous architect Jose Luis Moreno and named after the great Mayan leader.
Casa Balam Ek offers its guests an airy living room, a cozy fully equipped kitchen, a beautiful dining room and 4 spacious bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.
The artful ‘touches’ of the famous architect are seen in the unique structure, a very cool and original Casita ‘feature’ that you will find out about later and the smart layout of the house. Casa Balam Ek actually makes the most of the Caribbean breeze and stunning ocean views by having all the rooms face the beach.
Even if you are traveling with children and a big group of people there will be no more arguing over who gets what room. They all come with comfortable beds, private bathrooms, and cleaning services 6 days a week, so you will not have to worry about anything but rest and relaxation.
Besides the main house, Balam Ek also includes an adjoining Casita apartment, perfect for a small family or a couple.
The Casita includes a tastefully decorated bedroom with a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom, a full kitchen, and a cozy dining area.
But one of the best ‘features’ of the Casita mentioned earlier is undoubtedly an outdoor tub, located on the upper level right outside the bathroom window.
Soak here and making a wish on the shooting stars is something any romantic couple should try at least once.
During the day there are plenty of other activity options for both children and adults, like taking a refreshing swim in the pool, exploring the wonders of the underwater world, tasting new freshly-prepared dishes and cocktails at the local beach restaurant or taking a nap in one of the hammocks placed for you on the oceanfront terrace. This is what they call “La Buena Vida” in Mexico!
For your convenience, Casa Balam Ek also has a complete entertainment system, wi-fi, 2 iPod dock stations and satellite TV. So make sure to bring your camera, your laptop or an iPad. Otherwise, how will you share the beauty of Ek Balam and Riviera Maya with your friends and relatives back home?
But before you start to pack your suitcases, remember to check the availability for this unique villa named after an unusual man! Inquire about this vacation villa!
