Villa Taj-Kumal

Central Akumal, Akumal, Mexico


  • The Best Location and the Only Villa on Akumal Bay

    The Taj Kumal is Akumal’s little Taj Mahal, and it is nestled by the sparkling blue waters of Akumal Bay. In fact, it is the ONLY villa situated on Akumal’s magnificent main beach.  Its prized location and proximity to everything central Akumal has to offer – from the famous Lol Ha Beach Bar, to dive facilities and markets – is not the only “aspect” that draws vacationers here from all over the world.

    Everything about this Moroccan-Mediterranean style villa makes it stand out from the typical vacation rental properties that you may have seen hundreds of times before.

    The living room of Taj Kumal will pleasantly surprise you with its 30-foot cathedral ceiling, delicately carved stone walls and unique custom-made furniture.

    The kitchen area is every woman’s dream (even if you don’t enjoy cooking). It’s not just spacious, it is truly grand, incorporating a polished, caramel-colored bar and facing the elegant dining area that is big enough to sit 10 people.

    Expansive sliding doors that run along the entire wall of the dining area lead to the gorgeous ocean-side pool area. So your buffet meals and cocktail parties can be easily extended outdoors. With a thatched party pavilion, two separate outdoor dining areas, an inviting day bed and numerous lounge chairs strategically placed around the softly-curved pool, relaxation and a sense of well-being are guaranteed!

    Taj Kumal’s 6 Bedrooms worthy of a Sheikh

    Four of Taj Kumal’s airy bedrooms are located in the main villa and two Mediterranean-style bedroom is found on the second level of the carriage house casita.

    No matter which bedroom you choose to stay in, you won’t be disappointed. Three of the bedrooms are located on the ocean side of the villa and come with a king-size bed and spacious en-suite bathroom.

    And while every single one of these bedrooms deserves to be a master suite, the “Prana Bungalow” stands out the most.

    It is not a coincidence that “Prana” means “life force” or “inner energy” in Sanskrit, because this bedroom has been designed to help you replenish your strength and restore your energy. Besides its original Balinese-hindu design, it boasts an outdoor shower with smooth, warm stones embedded into the floor for a natural foot massage.

    The master suite of the house is located on the second floor of the Taj Kumal villa. Spacious and open with refreshing sea breezes, it boasts a wrap-around terrace, offering stunning views of the pool and Akumal Bay. Additionally there is a beachside guest bungalow with a king bed with a private bathroom and outdoor shower.

    Rooftop observation deck to die for!

    On the opposite side of the master bedroom you will find a large rooftop observation deck with a spectacular panoramic view of Akumal Bay. This is the best place to enjoy evening cocktails and take lots of pictures of the tropical Caribbean sunsets.

    The last bedroom, located in Carriage House Casita, will probably remind you of the “Mama Mia” movie, as its airy design seems to be brought here from the distant and romantic islands of Greece. The casita bedroom is fully air conditioned and features a cozy queen-size bed, a private bathroom and easy access to the beach.

    Whether you are travelling with friends or a large family, you will love staying at Taj Kumal. So if you like the idea of spending your vacation in Akumal’s most sought-after location, surrounded by luxury and comfort, make sure that you book this unique villa for your exotic Caribbean vacation!
