Solferino Lazaro Cardenas, Quintana Roo
Luxurious villa with a pool combining minimalist modern design and traditional materials on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.
This beautiful property in Quintana Roo, Mexico is the result of a collaboration between New York Designers and local craftsmen. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the reclaimed pre-Colombian Vista Maya stone used for the facade to the beautiful shell used in place of a tap in one of the bathrooms. The traditional materials and techniques combined with the highest quality design create a simple luxury that invites you to unplug and relax.
The villa has three bedrooms and five bathrooms in total across two unique structures. The interiors have been furnished to create a minimalist feel which really highlights the traditional features, from the woven lampshades to the hammocks made from natural materials.
There are two suites in the main stone building. The Vista Maya Suite has a five-meter-high ceiling and a loft area which can be used as extra sleeping space or for a revitalising morning yoga session. It also has a king-size bed and an ensuite bathroom with an open shower. The Palapa Suite has a traditional Zacate or grass thatch roof which has been left exposed on the interior creating a beautiful feature ceiling. This room leads out onto a rooftop terrace overlooking the 12-metre pool and the two acres of gardens.
The third bedroom is located in a second building, the Casita Jardin which is surrounded by the garden’s beautiful plants and trees. This building has another double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and an outdoor shower. This is also where you’ll find the simple kitchen which extends to the outdoors into a spacious dining area. This is covered by a palapa, a traditional open-sided structure with a thatched roof made from palm leaves, which provides a welcome bit of shade during the hottest part of the day.
The house is in a secluded location within the Yum Balam Flora y Fauna Nature Reserve in the Quintana Roo region on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It’s surrounded by nature and you can explore the El Corchal Cork Forest or learn about the local wildlife while doing some bird watching with a guide. Head to the coast where you can hop on a ferry to the beautiful Isla Holbox. Or head inland to discover Mayan ruins and learn about the fascinating history of the Yucatán Peninsula.
