Villa Canteena

Playa del Secreto, Playa del Secreto, Mexico


  • “Secret” Villa in Playa del Secreto near Puerto Morelos

    Villa Can-Teena is Riviera Maya’s secret getaway that combines the best traditions of Mexican craftsmanship, the sleek modern lines of a luxury villa and the services and amenities of a fine hotel.

    One of the architectural elements that stands out the most when you first see this charming 4-bedroom villa is its impressive arched windows. Besides adding curb appeal to this luxury ocean front house, they let in lots of light and pamper the guests with a magnificent view of the secluded Playa del Secreto and the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

    Once inside, you will notice that Villa Can-Teena has a therapeutic effect on your soul. The feeling of spaciousness and airiness created by the open floor living space and high ceilings will make you instantly forget about stuffy office air, long narrow corridors and cold fluorescent lighting.

    Villa Canteena is about pleasure, privacy and peace of mind

    The living room, with its cozy built-in sofas, wet bar and satellite TV has been designed for ultimate relaxation and long Mexican siestas.  The dining area is conveniently located just off the living room and can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.

    The kitchen, with its caramel-colored hand-painted tiles and modern appliances, makes it easy to imagine yourself preparing a quick guacamole or creating a culinary masterpiece here.

    And if you prefer to take full advantage of the refreshing sea breezes and enjoy your cocktail or a meal outdoors, there is nothing easier. It is enough to open the expansive glass doors facing the Caribbean, to find yourself on a large, palapa-covered pool side terrace that features another outdoor dining area.

    Three wide steps lead from the ocean side terrace to an elegant raised swimming pool. Relaxing here with a panoramic view of Playa del Secreto as your background is a true delight.

    Villa Can-Teena’s 4 posh bedroom suites is another detail worth mentioning. Each of the bedrooms boasts a spacious en-suite bathroom, private terrace/patio and a number of unique art details, including hand-painted murals, hand-crafted furniture and original tiles made by Mexican artisans.

    3 of the rooms come with a queen-size bed, while the Master bedroom features a king-size bed and a Jacuzzi bathtub for the ultimate spa experience.

    On-site services takes this villa from good to great!

    If you want to pamper yourself even further, Villa Can-Teena offers additional and very affordable services (such as a professional massage and spa therapists, chef services, and babysitting). Often mommies, like no one else, need to be reminded what it feels like to be treated like a queen.

    Considering the privacy and tranquility that you get when staying at this gorgeous beachfront villa and Playa Del Secreto, it is almost hard to believe that this secluded Paradise-on-Earth is located only 20 minutes from Cancun airport and 15 minutes from vibrant Playa del Carmen, famous for its prime shopping, cozy bars and restaurants, nightlife and beautiful beaches.

    So don’t wait until one of the best kept secrets of Playa del Secreto gets discovered by other travelers looking for a perfect place to spend their Caribbean vacation, and add Villa Can-Teena to your inquiry right now!
