Stay

ACCOMMODATIONS


Enjoy our own private villa right on the beach road in Tulum. Ocean across the street, steps from all of Tulum’s hottest attractions, and miles of beach to walk. Plus we have our own private pool and beautiful yoga space. The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 shared indoor bathrooms and a pool bathroom, dining area to enjoy breakfast, restaurant across the street, and an ample yoga space for outdoor practice.

Each room is unique with different views and features.  Room #1 offers a king bed on the first level with a mezzanine holding two twin beds on the second floor as seen below. There is a bathroom on the king bedroom level. Room #2 is a lofted area above the dining area featuring another two twin beds. Bathrooms for second level are shared either downstairs or upstairs.

Rooms #3 & #5 offer ocean views from the top floor of the house. One room has a queen bed and the other has a king. There is plenty of closet space, a secret walkway outside for ocean views, and two bathrooms in the hallway to share amongst the three rooms upstairs.

Room #4 is also on the third floor.  It has a king bed and jungle views.

 

Tulum is an ecological zone which means rustic luxury. We have electricity and solar powered internet 24 hours per day. Sheets and towels are changed only when necessary to conserve our precious natural resources and we offer ocean breezes instead of air conditioning. Most of the year the weather is very comfortable and you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves just steps from your bed.  We heat our own water for showers and tread lightly on the land that hosts us all.

Praise

“The best time in paradise! I had the best time on retreat in Tulum! It exceeded my expectations – everything from the location + accommodations, the classes and the food were exceptional. I traveled alone and loved how the days were thoughtfully planned but gave us lots of free time to explore. Christina and Sofi were awesome to communicate with and made Tulum feel like home. I’d come back in a heartbeat!”

–Shelby L. Vancouver, BC CAN

“Best thing I have done for myself! I loved the time I spent at Zamas with Yoga Adventures Worldwide. Christina and Sofi were very welcoming and made it a safe space to be in for 5 days. I traveled solo and was slightly nervous and was welcomed by their friendly faces and immediately felt comfortable. The Zamas hotel was also great and the house was clean and in a central location. The town of Tulum has many great restaurants and shops close by. The retreat schedule was perfect allowing time for 2 classes a day and plenty of free time to do other activities. I highly recommend a retreat with Yoga & Adventures Worldwide and hope to try another retreat location in the future!”

–Tiffany Z. Pittsburg, PA USA

“A bucket-list must! My yoga retreat in Tulum was incredible. Such an enlightening fun & soulful experience that its going back on my bucket list. The group of woman running it, from the teachers, to the coordinators/admins, to the owner, are beautiful people who helped make the experience as awesome as it was. The excursions were wild and intense (in a good way) , well organized, the food was very yummy and the practice & schedule was prefect. Compared to other retreats this was affordable. Highly recommend this retreat, no matter what destination!”

–Katie B., Vancouver, BC CAN

“Paradise Found!! The trip with Yoga Adventures Worldwide to Tulum was phenomenal, I highly recommend it. I didn’t know what to expect and the trip surpassed everything I could have dreamed of. It may have actually been the best vacation I’ve ever had. Christina does an amazing job putting this retreat together and she is also an awesome person to have around. Sofi paid attention to all the details with so much care, was always available to help with everything, and also made things fun. I am so grateful that I found this retreat on a whim, it’s the luckiest thing that has ever happened to me.”

–Emily C., London, England UK
