What to expect from ZenSea Villas
All villas are boutique luxury beachfront-villa vacation-rentals based in Akumal, on Mexico’s famous Riviera Maya. Individually, the villas are a refined combination of luxurious Mexican treasures, pampering amenities and indulging guest service.
The owners are a married couple who live locally and are available to constantly supervise and tend to every detail of their villas. For the past two years they have re-imagined and totally revamped the villas. They have also created an impeccably trained staff to handle all of our discerning guests’ needs. All the villas’ location is directly on the beach in Akumal, Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Below we provide a list of the 4 properties we advertise.
Zen del Mar
Zen del Sol
Directly on the sandy beach of Jade Bay, Akumal–Tulum, Villa Zen del Mar is a Mexican-Modern inspired luxury villa. The 7,500 sq. ft. seven-bedroom villa is designed with luxury, privacy and ultimate pampering in mind. Stunning hardwood doors open up to the foyer with three-story high glass window presenting the Caribbean Sea. Rich, hand-made Mexican terra-cotta tile floors with four stairs that invite you to a sunken oversized living room, with ample seating for 18 guests. The living room opens directly to the pool patio with sliding glass doors that disappear into the walls – giving the entire villa a feel of indoor-outdoor luxury. A generous dining room boasts a specimen dining table crafted of a single slice of salvaged hardwood trunk. The indoor dining room opens into the outdoor dining room where al-fresco breakfast is served by the villa staff and lunch or dinner may be ordered by the Villa chef.
Directly on sandy Jade beach: Entering the walled estate and walking into Villa Zen del Sol, one immediately feels the magic of the space. The entrance-foyer clad in Mayan limestone, the bench made of a trunk of a Zapote tree, the soaring brick dome adorned with a tongue-and-cheek modern-white chandelier all add to the wonder. One is immediately drawn outdoors. A seating area leads to a large sea-side lawn adorned by a Lilly garden and bound directly by sea-sand and sea-grapes. By the sea wall there are inviting Adirondack chairs – locally crafted of Cahoba hardwood – with tree-trunk cocktail tables for your welcome margarita.
Esprit del Mar
Directly on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, Esprit del Mar is a stunning villa soaring atop an ancient fossilized coral dune. With gentle breezes whispering among the coconut trees, and expansive sea views, this sumptuously elegant 12,000 sq. ft. villa, offers large living areas and nine oversized bedroom-suites for family enjoyment or corporate retreats. The walled estate has a regal entrance that opens to a world of private, secluded and safe luxury. Spacious living areas boast high ceilings and huge windows opening directly to the seafront, creating an atmosphere of boundless serenity. Esprit del Mar’s splendor includes architectural details rarely featured in a beach-front villa. Walk through the main entrance under the oversized chandelier hanging from the overhead domed ceiling, walk through the hardwood-clad main hallway and gaze at the Caribbean Sea. Discover the Mexican yellow-onyx light fixtures, enjoy the splendor of the onyx bar wrapped in black granite anchoring the dining room with its candle-lit niched curved wall. Relish the amazing chef-kitchen where chef-prepared meals or family cooking happens. Watch the sun rise over the Caribbean while you’re still in bed, debating whether to stay nestled in the comfy sheets a while longer. After a lovely breakfast on the outdoor dining terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea, you can begin a day relaxing around the villa or exploring the many natural wonders of the Riviera Maya.
From the flowered garden entrance to the spacious open foyer and living areas, the power of tropical colors is alive at our Moondance Villa. Mexico is not afraid of color and this villa is blooming with the cultural folklore of colors and textures. Simple, vibrant hues embraced by white walls and Saltillo tile floors create a delightful flow through the open kitchen, dining and living areas, out onto the patio, across the clear blue pool, under the green coconut palms and down to the beautiful azure Caribbean. The freedom of space, sunlight and time collide to make this villa a great place to enjoy, create, or chill; whatever your heart desires.
All the bedrooms express in this colorful simplicity of native Mexican pride. Each restful bedroom has an ocean view and balcony as well. The bathrooms even display Mexican tradition, with their beautifully smooth marble tiled walls, sinks and showers.
Located on Jade Bay, just south of Akumal Bay, you’re near the hotel zone without being part of it. This villa offers “well located” privacy. You can easily snorkel the bay, walk the lovely beach or relax around the pool, in your own quiet world. And if you are lucky enough to plan your stay during a full moon, watching the magnificent giant sphere rise from the Caribbean horizon you’ll absolutely understand why this villa is named Moondance. It’s magical! Your soul can’t help but come alive among the colors and joy of this villa.
