Six beach retreats in Mexico

Six beach retreats in Mexico

Posted by Fabrice Gilbert in Scouting

It’s probably not a coincidence if tree of the six best beach retreat are located at few miles from our office.

 

 

La Semilla: Playa del Carmen

This nine-room B&B in the resort city of Playa del Carmen features furniture picked up at flea markets and haciendas across the Yucatán Peninsula.

The result is a “rough luxe” look which embraces imperfections. Salvaged planks of whitewashed wood line the walls in the rooms, where wire-frame beds, vintage road signs, dangling ceiling lights and old-fashioned desk fans abound.

Elsewhere, upturned apple crates act as bedside tables and traditional cupboards are replaced with suspended coat hangers.

The Cocina Loft makes for an engaging breakfast room, with mismatched armchairs, scattered sofas and low coffee tables that lead on to a large, leafy courtyard, which brims with tropical plants and outdoor seating. Come sunset, head to the roof terrace for views of Caribbean Sea.

Villa Las Estrellas: Tulum

On the shores of Tulum, Villa Las Estrellas – “the house of stars” – sparkles with a collection of airy, double-height rooms. Each of the nine suites is centred on a linen-draped, four-poster bed, which shifts with the sea breeze.

Go here if you seek barefoot luxury, but not if you’re after an all-singing, all-dancing resort – the remoteness of this jungle-backed region means there are no phones or TVs. Instead, drop into the restaurant for fresh octopus and chilled margaritas, or head out to explore the area’s clifftop Mayan ruins.

CasaSandra: Isla Holbox

The owner of this casa on the Caribbean island of Holbox is an artist, who has lavished the space with her own creations. Works by the likes of Roberto Fabelo and Noel Morera, two contemporary Cuban artists, also line the walls.

The 19 rooms are classically Mexican, with open-fronted decks, bright hammocks and traditional woven fabrics. Outside, visit the hotel’s restaurant, which has won praise from Noma chef René Redzepi or head off-site to search for hawksbill turtles, flamingos, pelicans and whale sharks.
