ZEN DEL MAR - SEVEN-BEDROOM BEACH-FRONT LUXURY VILLA ON JADE BEACH

Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 7 Bedrooms, 7.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Zen del Mar is a stunning Mexican modern masterpiece in design and furnishings. This luxury Villa is situated on a secluded private beach in Jade Bay yet within walking distance from Jade beach into the town of Akumal. This amazing villa offers the luxury furnishings and services for a special holiday on the Mexican Caribbean. The owners of Zen del Mar have designed this Villa after years of providing luxury rentals at the adjacent villa; Casa del Sol Naciente. This spacious 4800 square foot home with five bedroom suites and en-suite bathrooms can comfortably accommodate up to 14 people.

From the moment you see the color of Zen del Mar’s claret red painted exterior, historically used by the Mayans to promote good energy, you will begin to relax. The hand-made terra cotta tiled floors and the heavy wooden double Doors greet you with a feeling of being on vacation in Mexico. The floor plan of Zen del Mar is a designed synergy of indoor and outdoor spaces that maximize the ability to be outdoors and indoors all at the same time. The first floor doors disappear into the hidden wall reveals to create wide open spaces to the 60 foot long pool, the lounging patio, the sand patio and ten hardwood Lounge chairs.

The Villa was designed by its owner and marries elements of modern Mexican architecture with local Mayan craftsmanship. The designers, who have traveled extensively, have used pieces from global destinations and the world of fashion to create a different type of beach house.

Beautiful ZEN - luxury experience - something for everyone

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Villa Zen del Mar was in fact a zen experience. We landed in Cancun in May 2014 where a car was arranged to pick us up. It was an easy drive to “Zen” and upon arrival we immediately began to shed the stresses of the prior many months. Any concerns I might have had about sharing a Villa with multi-generations of 12 people were put to rest as the villa and surrounds were better than advertised to accommodate our large group. The pool, the furnishings, and the large kitchen were made for large groups or intimacy – whatever one’s needs – such was the attention to detail throughout the Villa. Very important to us was a level of privacy afforded by retreating to any of the en suite rooms, a secluded spot on the beach or in one of the Adirondack chairs positioned around the Villa to take in the waves and turtle watching (turtles nest here – really amazing to see). I spent many hours swimming and then sitting poolside sipping a delicious cocktail with the freshest fruit, a great view of the sea, and a good book.

After our arrival, the rest of our group of family and friends began trickling in, each immediately kick-starting their retreat with either a very short walk into town, in and around the pool or on the beach. The staff was unobtrusive, seeming to appear whenever needed, were friendly and polite and took great pleasure in taking care of us. The chef services were better than a good restaurant, so we only ate out twice at La Lunita for dinner and the Bakery Café for lunch.

Some of the “parents” were concerned about safety but that was quickly dispelled with security on the street and a few walks around the very peaceful and gentle environment.

While I vow to be tech-free when away, good wifi is essential, and I had connectivity throughout our stay.

I have had great experiences at 5 star resorts but ZEN stands out as one of my best vacations and this was seconded by one and all of our diverse group. There was something for everyone. We will be returning to this Villa next year for two weeks.

The vacation was way over my expectations. The villa was beautiful, clean and well-maintained and the staff was always available. The location to the town of Akumal and the surrounding locations was very convenient. The highlight of our trip was swimming with whale sharks. We also went snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing and visited Tulum and Xelha. I loved getting up in the morning and swimming laps in the pool. I highly recommend a stay at Zen del Mar.

One of The Best Vacations I Have Ever Had!

  • 4 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful week at Villa Zen del Mar in January 2014. The house is large enough for all 10 of us and we had fabulous Chef made dinners for five of our seven nights there. The Villa is directly on the ocean and we all had our favorite spots in the garden by the Sea. I enjoyed kayaking directly in front of the Villa as it comes with a two person kayak and life vests. We saw turtles in Akumal Bay a short beach walk from the Villa into town. The bedrooms are all king size and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. It is clear that the owners take excellent care of their property and the staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was the longest in Akumal and we all swam in the pool and the ocean.
I have stayed at two "all- inclusives" on the Riviera Maya and staying at Villa Zen del Mar beats any hotel by far. We had privacy, perfect weather, massages and our family enjoyed a perfect vacation.
Thank you for making this Villa for us our home away from home, we hope to come back next year for the same week.

Perfect Girl's Getaway

Perfect Girl's Getaway
  • 5 of 5
I visited Zen Del Mar for a girl's trip in November and the experience could not have been more perfect. The pictures of the house do not do it justice. It is magnificent and seemed like it was out of a magazine or a movie. The owner took care of all of our requests and needs and then some. He could not have been more gracious, welcoming or hospitable. The house is as comfortable and tranquil and as it is beautiful. We visited the cenotes and Tulum while we were there and both were magical. For our big night out we hired a car service to take us into Playa. The restaurants in Akumal were excellent and we had dinner cooked at the house two nights which I highly recommend. I can't wait to go back and I would and have suggested this place to everyone I know.

Mayan Magic

  • 5 of 5
Zen del Mar was a magical vacation. Located on the ocean, with walking access to the lovely Akumal, a village that is safe, welcoming, with cafes, boutiques and surf shops. The house itself sleeps 14, has 5 bedrooms and is designed beautifully with amazing water views and an array of unique items made by local craftsmen partnered with unusual and interesting fabrics. The effect is stunning. The staff is warm and friendly. The food delicious. The massages were top of the line. Activities such as snorkeling, scuba, swimming with whale sharks and visiting local temples were easy to arrange. We were fully engaged the whole week. To top it all off, the owners live nearby and were able to give us the inside tips on where to go and what to do. We loved every minute of it.
