The new Casitas rooms are elevated on stilts so that small animals may pass below and that growth of nature may continue in an unobstructed manner. Supplies, furniture, decoration are all made in the local region, conscious of the need of helping the local communities. Recovered and recycled wood is used in our constructions as a building standard and, much of the wood and other materials we use have been rejected for imperfections by some of the local woodworking shops.

DESCRIPTION

Luxury is most sensibly manifested in our Casitas Jungle Experience furnished with large front terraces, plunge pools and roof decks rising above the jungle, expanding the viewer's horizons in all directions.

+ See more

Recent news from the Land of the Blest concern the development in the southern wing of the beach – the unfolding conceived as a shift toward luxury and exclusivity, if only partial throughout the resort.

These fancy units are fundamentally down-to-earth constructs – made of locally sourced and low-impact materials; shaped and equipped to sustain the excesses of natural forces typical of the coastal area and tropical climate; styled very much in accordance with the native tradition of vernacular architecture.

One and two-storied thatched casitas lining half-hidden in the opulent jungle above the beach are built of wood which reinforces a thick layer of clay-like composite substance containing extract of the chuckun tree. The chuckun sap makes the walls – as robust as concrete – more elastic and resistant to the pressure of winds and offers a fine surface when polished. The staircase party enwrapping each building leads guests from the front terrace to the roof deck to enjoy idyllic views of the entire property and beyond. Full-facade sliding windows allow an abundance of natural light to permeate all areas of the casitas. Beautifully massive wooden windshields moved from both sides seal the front protecting the building from drastic weather conditions. The shields are strong enough to sustain hurricanes.

The interior is as neatly ascetic as it gets. It is from this thoughtful simplicity the casitas derive most of their charm. High arched ceiling bestows the inside an inviting flair. White and off-white colors which almost total the palette expand the space perceptually making its limits evanescent and the room far more generous. So does the facade-wide floor-to-ceiling window that unlocks the place to infinity – incorporating or giving itself to it. Breeze that gently transpierces the space filling it with fresh air and chill intensifies the subjective experience of the interior, making it tangible. King-size bed assumes its due without infringing upon the rest of the area. Seating is provided in avoidance of furniture which would only encumber the space – in the form of protruding monolith stretched along the wall and fully integral with it. It can also serve as a shelf, a table, an extra bed...

The casita space is partitioned so that its fair third is given to a partly open-plan bathroom appointed with a rain-shower and a washstand – all one really needs on the beach, not to mention another bathroom component behind the door.

With Tulum being one of the greatest romantic getaways in the world and Papaya Playa – an escape a step further, the casitas are ideal for traveling couples who value tranquility and seclusion while not entirely objecting to the idea of quality nightlife once in a while, if only for a change. Casitas are advantageously situated within a walking distance from the beach club famous for its jubilant parties every Saturday.
