Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

An absolute top-of-the line experience, 5+ stars. The Casa Yakunah (Yakunah means "love" in Mayan) property is carefully architected with tasteful interior design including furniture and ornamental pieces from both local and well-known international designers. Service is impeccable, with outstanding on-site butler, Italian chef, bartender, and house staff, all with international backgrounds and training. The property manager was extremely responsive and took care of the tiniest details during our stay, including many delights for our children. Speaking of the children, they just couldn't get enough of the pool and beach, and Sian Ka'an is truly one of the remaining natural wonders of the world – perfect for kayaking and paddle-boarding off the private wharf, where the parents enjoyed a beautiful romantic sunset over a perfectly-mixed mojito. We climbed the highest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan, discovered ancient skeletons in an underwater cenote, mapped the incredible night sky, and floated gently in the crystal clear water of a Mayan canal. Our son, for whose 8th birthday the staff prepared a surprise feast (including a piñata, to the kids' great delight!) summed it up as the "best trip ever-ever".

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Casa Yakunah is one of our favorite places on earth. Surrounded by jungle and set on a dune overlooking a stunning private stretch of powdery white beach along the Caribbean this is of the few places on earth where we can truly connect with the natural world while residing in private luxury.

We've stayed several places along the beach road in Tulum, but with these perfect beaches to ourselves, we sometimes felt like we were on a deserted island. This property is in the Sian Kaan, on the thin peninsula between the sea and the lagoon, and from the roof top decks, you can see stunning views of both. And with "neighboring" properties so far away, we seldom saw anyone who wasn't with us at Yakunah.

The Casa itself is well designed and beautifully decorated with many unique features. The main palapa (over 3 stories tall!) covers a gigantic and comfortable gathering space that opens onto a massive wood deck that leads to the steps down the dune and to the surf. From nearly every spot in the casa you can see the sea or lagoon, and with many hammocks, sofas, and places to lounge, we felt like we could always relax together or apart, connecting and conversing or reading or napping, or just gazing at the sea. If you know Tulum, you know what I mean.

The bedrooms are generously sized and quite comfortable. With the ceiling fans we never felt the need for a/c (though it's available). The bathrooms - especially the master bath - are even beautiful. I love the giant wooden bathtub! It's a heavenly experience.

We really appreciated all the comfort items and amenities available. The yoga mats are perfect to take to the rooftop patio for meditation and sun salutations by the infinity pool. The panga boards and kites and beach toys kept us entertained in the surf. The many djembe and hand drums inspired an impromptu drum circle at sunset (and there is even a djembe instructional DVD to watch on the giant pulldown projection screen in the palapa!!!) And the staff takes great care to ensure that towels and refreshments are always just an arms length away.

We've stayed there twice now, and are planning our next visit. We can't say enough about how pleasant our experience has been, and though we'd like to keep it to ourselves, we appreciate what the great folks who work there and the proprietors have built.

Gracias amigos, we'll see you soon!
