Villa Gauguin is an ideal place for those seeking a refined and luxurious environment for their holidays.
Built at the entrance of the Yal-Ku lagoon, it has a unique view of both the ocean and the lagoon. Bordered by a rocky coastline, Villa Gauguin has direct access to the lagoon, a natural aquarium where you can swim. Yal-Ku lagoon is well known for its crystalline waters and fauna. It is the best place for snorkeling , looking for sea turtles which frequent the lagoon.
Villa Gauguin was built in a minimalist style with pure and simple lines allowing a full integration with the natural surroundings. The architectural principle of Villa Gauguin is the “sea” and all its shades.
Once you open the entrance door, you are amazed by the 180° view of the Yal-Ku lagoon. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow a perfect integration of the house and the sea.

We absolutely loved Villa Gauguin. We came with our kids ages 14-24 party of 8 for my 50th birthday. We arrived very early before check in and it wasn’t a problem to drop our luggage off. Then we grabbed a cab and went to the Monkey Sanctuary for a few hours when we arrived back at the Avila Francisco and Gladys prepared yummy margaritas and snacks for us a few hours before our dinner they prepared.
The home is beautiful and spacious the daily maid service was awesome they watch over every need you had.
I ran most mornings and cane back to the lovely breakfast they prepared.
The view from the pool area is so pretty. We spent a lot of time just hanging by the pool. If you leave just be sure to lock the doors and lock up valuables in the safes. Just like you would anywhere.
The ate at the the three restaurant that are very close
We rented a golf cart which was great
We look forward to going back.
Un séjour magnifique !!!
Nous avons passé une semaine de rêve dans un endroit de rêve. La maison est lumineuse, grande et propre. Francisco et Gladys sont accueillants et très serviables. Ils nous ont donné de bons conseils lors de notre séjour et cuisinent très bien. L’endroit est idyllique pour faire du snorkeling, il y a beaucoup de poissons à observer, tout le monde a adoré. Si nous avons le bonheur de revenir dans cette région, nous reviendrons à Villa Gauguin, sans aucune hésitation. Merci pour tout et à la prochaine !!
Beautiful location and view on Akumal Bay
The location and views really are spectacular. We watched the red ball of sun rise over the eastern sea horizon from the master BR in the morning. Our younger grandchildren pretty much lived in the infinity pool whenever at the house and the older ones snorkeled from the
shore, although it was rocky, and saw manta and sting rays, sea turtles and many schools of fish. The house is large with large bedrooms, baths and closets, but is showing bit of wear - the large glass back door leaks in rain as does the skylight above it and some of the furnishings are showing wear. The very large and heavy front door could potentially be a danger to young children if the back glass door is also open as strong winds often blow from shore. The caretakers, Francisco and Gladys, are delights and very good cooks, but I was surprised at the large tip that the book of instructions said was expected. I would have felt better if this had been explained as part of the property description and fees on the website. Written instructions are needed for the TV and other electronics and it would be nice if the AC fans could be controlled so as not to blow on you while sleeping, although I was very impressed at how quiet they were. Overall, all 12 of us had a very enjoyable, 9 day vacation at Villa Gauguin.
Beautiful home, amazing hospitality and great location
Our extended family of nine (ranging from ages 6 to 76) spent a week at Villa Gauguin over the holidays. It honestly felt like a two week vacation! I have never felt so relaxed and comfortable on a family trip. Dominique was very helpful and communicative as we prepared for the trip and planned out meals and activities. Upon arrival Francisco and Gladys were so welcoming and helpful for my sister and her family who arrived a day before myself, my husband, my kids and grandpa.
Villa Gauguin was a perfect home base for our week. My husband got his morning run in early each day while the rest of us took our time enjoying coffee and the sunrise from the pool area or balconies. Francisco had stocked the kitchen for us so we could make easy breakfasts together when we wanted to head out early to the beach or visit a ruin. He and Gladys also prepared dinner for us on four nights which was amazing and plentiful (loved the Mexican plate, fajitas, green Chile enchiladas and tacos! Can’t forget lime soup made by request as well as delicious and ever present margaritas, guacamole and salsa. The flan, cheese pie and chocolate cake were big winners and I think his banana pudding is the best I’ve ever had).
We enjoyed simple beach day trips to Akumal and Tulum and snorkeled in the lagoon. The best part was to then come back and let kids play in the pool while parents and grandpa relaxed in the lounge chairs. A few days were spent playing in the pool all morning, then we walked down the road to get afternoon ice cream, a few groceries or beers, then walk back to the house and settle in for a lazy afternoon before dinner.
I have to reiterate how warm and friendly our hosts were as well. My twin daughters are learning Spanish and my chatty one spent a whole afternoon learning how to cook soup and make guacamole with Francisco and Gladys. They made special kid friendly margaritas the next few days which the kids loved.
I read two whole chapter books (my daughter wanted to stress that point) and we played card games at the dining room table each night which was the best. This was one of the best family vacations ever and we look forward to coming back in the future!!!
Beautiful home, peaceful location!
We had an amazing stay for 5 days with 10 adults. Akumal is one of our favorite places to visit, and it was such a treat for us to stay at the Villa. Fransisco and Gladys who are the caretakers also cooked many of our meals for us. They were accommodating to vegetarians, and we LOVED the food they made! In dealing with Dominique in setting up the reservation and making changes...it couldn't have been easier! We will definitely return to Villa Gaugin!!!!
We had a great stay at villa guaguin!!! The place was amazing and for 10 people there was plenty of space. We enjoyed snorkeling right outside the house. Francisco and Gladys do a great job taking care of the house and made some great food for us. We had about 5 meals at the house including grilled fresh amberjack that I caught. We would love to come back.
Villa Gauguin is located in Akumal, without doubt the quietest and most picturesque village at the heart of the Mayan Riviera. Akumal, “Turtle’s nest” in Mayan, is a favorite place for the sea turtles to lay their eggs. Akumal has two bays with beautiful beaches, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving as the corral reef is very closed to the coastline. In the surroundings of Akumal, there are some 200 entrances to the “cenotes”, subterranean caves with depths up to 170 yards and very clear waters. The main centers for scuba diving in “cenotes” are in Akumal. For the golf fanatics,the new Rivera Maya Golf Club of Bahia Principe is only 10 minutes away from the house
