- Price range

set in one of the most exotic spots on the mexican pacific, just a few kilometers from puerto escondido, in the state of oaxaca. this minimalist 5 suite property is an exclusive and distinctive getaway combining contemporary architecture, local traditions and meticulous attention to detail to create a tropical oasis that offers a unique experience.
the property is distinguished by its mixture of subtlety with austerity and theatricality, striking a perfect balance between the abundant vegetation, awesome panoramic views of the pacific and tiny details of its architecture. the arrangement of the bungalows allows all of them to benefit from an individual private terrace overlooking the sea, while all the interior design is a permanent evocation of various traditional cultures from all over the world.
a centuries-old parota tree, typical of the region, marks the entrance to the house from the road. after passing through groves of ají peppers, papayas and coconuts you reach the entrance via a platform made of river stones, an oasis of palm trees or a patio of sea orchids sprinkled by delicate trickles of water.
the palapa is probably one of the architectural features most strongly identified with the pacific basin. this element derived from malaysia - where "palapa" means "pulpy leaf" - has adapted very well to the mexican climate and provides the central hub of the property with dining and chill out spaces.
5 bungalow suites make up the sleeping areas built using parota wood, coconut fiber, cotton, onyx and natural stone . all of them boast a panoramic view of the ocean, a private terrace, an indoor and outdoor chill-out area, two double beds and an interior patio that gives total privacy to the bathroom.
chill-out is a recurring theme throughout the house, offering a permanent invitation to relax in a number of different places. each area has its own personality, whether hanging, above water, under pergolas or palapas, with panoramic views, indoors or outdoors.
the pool, bordered by loose river stone, is an elegant composition embracing the horizon over the sea, the nearby sand, the lush vegetation, the wooden pergolas and the various chill-out areas around the pool.
the lounge-library, completely fitted out as a home cinema with air-conditioning and large chill-out couches, enjoys intimate views of the interior gardens.
