Can't tell you how happy and amazing it was having the gorgeous Nicole Isaacs at our Zorba's & Mahayana's Beach Homes! Read her experience here and don't forget to visit her Instagram and Blog to see extra pictures and reviews.
Just got back from Tulum, and already getting so many questions on recommendations on what to do there, where to go and obviously where to eat.
Thought I’d share my favorite spots with you guys.
WHERE TO STAY: There are SO many great options to stay in Tulum. I’ve stayed at a few places and will share where, as well as places I want to stay in the future but haven’t yet.
MAHAYANA BEACH HOMES & ZORBA VILLAS: This past trip I stayed at both Mahayana Beach Homes and Zorba Beach Homes in Tulum - both properties owned by the same owner. They are not hotels, they are private villas on the beach in the heart of the best area of Tulum. I stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom villa with a rooftop at Mahayana, and a luxury 2-bedroom sea front villa at Zorba. Both properties are great and I loved it because it felt so private. You pull up to a private gate off the main road, that are both closed off to the public. It feels like you are entering your private home right on the beach.
We were so lucky to get to Tulum right in time for the Blood Moon. We were staying at Mahayana and walked right onto the beach at sunset and the full moon was in full effect. We stayed up until midnight to catch the red blood moon too which was beautiful to see from the beach right in front of our villa.
They don’t have any food or restaurants at either properties, so you either have to go out to eat, arrange for their chef services or go grocery shopping and stock the kitchen in your villa to cook. All the great restaurants are a short walking distance from both properties so super easy to walk right out and get some food. Also all the villas have beautiful & spacious kitchens so it’s nice to spend as much time in the villas as possible and cook.
Every villa at these properties are right on the beach, and Zorba has a beautiful pool with comfortable lounges if you feel like a change of scenery. These villas are perfect for any occasion and I highly recommend for groups or families, but also great for a romantic getaway.
I really enjoyed my stay at both properties and I have recommended them to so many people already. I definitely plan to stay there again soon!
