  • Funky Celebrity-Living on Yal ku Lagoon in Akumal

    Did you know that the Mexican Riviera has long been a celebrities’ secret hideaway?

    How exactly they discovered this Mayan Eden is unclear, but they keep coming back year after year and Casa del Sol located in the beautiful Yal ku Lagoon is proof of this fact. This amazing property is well-known by locals as the “Casa of the Grateful Dead”. It is said that this accommodation was owned by one of Grateful Dead’s band members.

    Indeed, Casa del Sol does combine the romantic vibe of the Yal Ku Lagoon and the hippy aura of a rock-star owned villa. There is no denying that Casa del Sol exudes a funky and eclectic atmosphere with its unique decorations that blend perfectly with the colorful Mayan culture and tropical location.

    It is easy to feel like a rock star at Casa del Sol

    Let me take you on a VIP tour of the house…

    The ground level of Casa del Sol consists of a private casita with a king-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and a mini-kitchen.

    The second level hosts two stylish bedrooms. The first room has two twin beds and a double bed, which makes it a perfect alternative for kids or a group of friends. The second bedroom is just as light and airy as the first one, offering its guests a comfortable double and a single bed.

    The third level of the villa is where the grand master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom and a private palapa patio is located. This is the room you could rightly claim for yourself.

    And if you have more friends joining you, you can always accommodate them in the tower bedroom. Besides offering head-spinning views of Yal ku Lagoon it comes with a double bed and a futon.

    It is also worth mentioning that each of the villa’s 5 bedrooms feature unique designs with their Caribbean-inspired murals, richly-colored silk fabrics and high quality hardwood furnishings.

    A true celebrity accommodation would not be complete without a magnificent pool and a few extra ‘luxuries’.

    Therefore, Casa del Sol spoils its guests with ultimate relaxation and awes them with unexpected discoveries.

    Here an ordinary swim in the pool may turn into a session of hydrotherapy massage, as the cascading waters of the newly built waterfall work wonders in washing all tension and stress away.

    Similar, the concept of a traditional Mexican siesta will be taken to a whole new level. Just grab a good book, pick one of the hammocks under the beach palapa and let the light ocean breeze and the views of the Yal ku lagoon transport you to another world.

    Moreover, even the sunsets when observed from the Casa del Sol’s roof deck turn into a must-see show. As the ephemeral rays of the setting sun bathe the horizon, nature comes to life with beautiful tropical birds floating in the air.

    It is in moments like this that we feel overwhelming joy, true bonding and unconditional love for the whole Universe. And this feeling is more precious than any luxury money can buy.

    Those who have experienced it, keep coming back to Casa del Sol year after year, some booking their stay 6-8 months in advance.

    So if you want to secure your slice of Mayan Eden, you’d better hurry!
