Casa Cantarena

  • Tulum, Mexico

Upon arriving to Casa Cantarena, located on the reserve in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, it is obvious that guests have stumbled upon something special and truly unparalleled anywhere in the world. This newly constructed beachfront Villa is the perfect combination of well thought out luxury, service, privacy and sustainability. Bordered by a calm lagoon to the west and a pristine sandy beach, overlooking the bright blue waters of the Caribbean Sea to the east, Casa Cantarena invites guests to enjoy relaxing beach time as well as access to world-class fishing and memorable boat tours through the legendary mangroves.

After the ninety-minute journey from the Cancun airport via private driver, the professional, full-time staff happily greets you with cold towels, margaritas and freshly prepared accouterments. Our knowledgeable and friendly Villa Manager will happily plan every last detail of your Mexico vacation, ensuring that your vacation is everything you had dreamed it would be. From exploring the ruins of Tulum to snorkeling/scuba diving in the area cenotes, there is plenty to discover in this culturally rich area on which the Mayans left their mark through incredible temples and impressive compounds.

Those who prefer to spend their time relaxing at the Villa, are spoiled by an attentive butler and cook who are ready to attend to your every need. Spend your day basking on the deck’s lounge area, resting on the beach-side beds and hammocks or splashing in the refreshing pool or the pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. At night, the stars shine bright and an overhead projection system brings your favorite movies to the big screen, while Wi-Fi keeps you connected to the outside world.

The great room, which runs parallel to the pool and beach, features high ceilings with an exposed thatch roof palapa that opens to the deck via a series of fold-away doors. Low-slung white sectionals create an inviting sitting area, and provide a serene and welcoming space from which to appreciate a morning coffee and admire the incredible view which lies beyond. Carefully crafted meals, made in the fully equipped kitchen by your own in-home chef, can be enjoyed from the director-style chairs in the breezy dining room.

Each of the four bedrooms at Casa Cantarena features an en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. Three of the suites have king-size beds while one room has two double beds. Soft shades of sand, coral and turquoise create a serene feeling throughout the home, while showers clad in stone and wood give the bathrooms a true spa quality.

Just three miles from the Mayan arch entrance to the Sian Ka’an reserve, 17 miles from the cave adventures at Cenote Aktun Chen and 40 miles from the main Riviera Maya resort area, Casa Cantarena’s beachfront location makes it easy for guests to explore all of the wonders of the Riviera Maya. For guests interested in exploring other beaches around the region, head to Barceló Maya Beach, 25 miles away, or Catalonia Yucatan Beach, 27 miles away. Play a round at Campo de Golf Puerto Aventura, only 26 miles away, or perfect your tennis game at one of two tennis courts located 27 miles away.

Your stay at Casa Cantarena will leave reinvigorated, and ready to plan your next escape to this beautiful slice of paradise in the Riviera Maya.

Casa Cantarena is a hidden Gem in Tulum. Set right on the sand with personalized service including a butler and villa manager to assist with all your needs. Before you arrive you have the option to suggest your menu and provide any allergies. The staff was incredible and anytime you think you might be thirsty they are by your side with either a cocktail or refreshing coconut drink. Dinner in the evenings are outside on the sand listening to the ocean waves followed by star gazing and conversations with your party.  Your breakfast is made fresh daily overlooking the sunrise. It has all the needed services that a hotel can offer but instead of fighting over a beach or pool chair with the other guests you have the whole private peach and pool to yourself. They even have turndown service which included a little chocolate with water by your bed. Everything was very well run and I was very impressed. Highly recommend for a private getaway to Tulum.
