Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Come join us for a Mayan Healing Experience at Dos Jaguares. Escape into the mystical world of the Mayans as you ascend the front staircase and enter a one of a kind private retreat. The journey begins as you enter the villa courtyard with its palapa platform surrounded by a tropical garden and Modern Maya colonnade. Let yourself be enfolded into the Mayan healing palapa where you will be treated to 4 mystical massages and 2 Mayan exfoliating wraps. Listen to relaxing music or the ocean tide Afterward, prepare yourself for a fantastic multi-course Mayan repast featuring Pollo Pibil (Mayan chicken). All of these services are included in the rental of this magnificent villa.
For those who appreciate art and architecture, Dos Jaguares is like living in a piece of sculpture. The harmony of its forms and ancient Mayan design references envelopes your healing experience. Designed by California architect, Tony Gonzales, the villa was created with ideas drawn from the ancient Mayan sites of Palenque, Uxmal and Chichen Itza and placed within a metric grid bringing mathematical harmony and balance. This villa reflects the owner's explorations to Mayan sites and love of the area for nearly thirty years. Ocean breezes, tropical gardens and lots of living space make it the perfect base to experience the true feel of the Riviera Maya.
Dos Jaguares is 5,000 square feet of white and silver marble floors from Durango, Mexico, custom built Honduran mahogany cabinets and furniture, photographs on the walls created by the owners of famous Mayan and Olmec sites transferred to canvas and art deco stylized glass blocks using ocean and sky colors brought from Miami. These art deco blocks are used throughout the villa and are inset in tall columns at the entrance of the villa and also on the beachfront. One of the many 'magic' parts of the villa is the upstairs composed of Mayan arches inspired by the Palace at Palenque. With the use of lighting, they have a special glow at night, as does the central courtyard with stylized steps and tropical landscaping.
The upstairs Master Suite is huge, as is the bathroom with a tub you can soak in while enjoying a view of the ocean, or, you can experience the fabulous open-air garden shower. This suite also has a large oceanfront balcony with a great view of the turquoise Caribbean. There is also the option to relax under the palapa hammocks downstairs in the tropical garden setting. The choice is yours! The upstairs Guestroom has a garden view, private bath and a small outdoor deck to watch the sunset. There is also a second Guest bedroom upstairs with two single beds and two futons. Downstairs is the living room, an extra bathroom, dining room, kitchen, and two guest bedrooms, each with private bath. One bedroom has a great view of the ocean and you can walk right out onto the beach. The other has a private entrance off of the central garden that offers extra quiet and security Dos Jaguares - a thoroughly designed villa for family living at it's best!

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had an amazing time.Only shortfall was a real oven, as we had a wedding cake to bake, but the property manager let us use another villa for that- very accommodating! The space was not ideal for 12 adult guests as the room for 4 was quite small, but it was beautifully appointed and very nicely situated.
