Zen del Mar

Jade Bay, Akumal, Mexico


  • A Caribbean Oasis of Calm Just South of the Heart of Akumal

    Take a few moments and imagine your dream vacation home. Now make it even more luxurious, more inviting and more beautiful and you will get Zen del Mar Villa!

    By far, it is one of the most unique and stunning beachfront homes in Jade Bay and possibly the entire Riviera Maya. Built by a well-known team of artisan builders and craftsmen, this 7-bedroom villa combines ancient Mayan traditions, with high-quality standards and 5-star amenities.

    For example, it is not a coincidence that warm claret red was chosen for Zen del Mar’s exterior. Historically this color was used by the Mayan healers to promote positive energy and well-being. And, let me tell you it really works!

    Every little bit of tension and stress that you might have accumulated over the past few months you will be left behind the heavy wooden double doors as you enter the house!

    The villa takes ’attention to details’ to the extreme

    Once inside, you will be surprised by the spaciousness of the villa and its cozy feel. Everything from the smooth terra cotta tile floors, to the beautiful furniture pieces, to the grand Yucatan-palapa roof, has been hand crafted, and thoughtfully incorporated into the space to create an atmosphere of soul-soothing luxury that you won’t find anywhere else.

    Designed as a perfectly-balanced synergy of indoor and outdoor spaces, Zen del Mar highlights the breathtaking views of Jade bay from every single room of the house. The first floor doors disappear into the walls, opening the house to the splendid 60 foot long pool, the snow-white lounging patio and the beach.

    The Expansive living space is doubled by an intelligently designed layout. In fact, Zen del Mar features  2 dining areas – a formal dining room inside the house and a beautiful adjourning outdoor dining area to allow you to make the maximum out of the soft sea breezes and heavenly Caribbean views.

    Also, besides a gourmet fully-equipped kitchen, with a cocktail bar and restaurant-quality amenities, there is a roofed outdoor kitchen. Ideal for cookout parties it is equipped with a built-in charcoal barbecue, a separate refrigerator and a service area just a few steps away from a solid-wood outdoor dining table.

    Although, ‘must-try’ experiences don’t end with dining al fresco or relaxing by the pool.

    Your own private Zen massage palapa for spa treatments

    Think – long relaxing massages in the secluded Zen Spa palapa overlooking Jade bay, hours of snorkeling and kayaking in the calm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean or romantic rendezvous in the stargazing lounge area.

    Since rest and a good night’s sleep is an indispensable part of a Zen vacation, all of the 5 villa’s bedrooms are actually Master Suites. Each boasts a high-quality king-size bed, a spacious en-suite bathroom, a private covered terrace offering stunning views and hand-made hardwood double-doors. Even such details as a mini-refrigerator, a laptop-sized safe and a satellite TV have been taken care of to guarantee that you will feel as comfortable as possible.

    Actually Zen del Mar offers a long list of complimentary services that guests staying in Zen del Mar receive.

    The Bottom line is: You worked hard for this vacation. You DESERVE to pamper yourself, your family and friends with the BEST and there is no better place to do it than at Zen del Mar. So think of 10 – 14 people that you would like to spend your vacation with and BOOK this deluxe oceanfront villa!
