The ultimate property for your Tulum travels. This is my 2nd time staying at Mahayana and it is a true oasis. This is a one of a kind experience especially for the typical bustle of Tulum. Mahayana feels like it's own little universe and dreamy beach escape while being in a prime location. Every little detail from the room decor, to raw wood of the mirrors and the outdoor showers is exceptional. I can't recommend this property enough.

We stayed in Casa Bonita! It was an unforgettable trip. Pictures do not accurately capture the magic of Mahayana. I was blown away when we arrived. Chabely was extremely helpful in arranging our airport transport. Miriam was a delight to work with as well. She arranged a private chef, massages and was always available for questions. We felt very welcome and at home. It is a short walk to town but far enough away that you can sleep in peach and quiet. We will absolutely be back!

Stayed at Zorba for 6 nights What an amazing experience Everyone was very nice and helpful Food was amazing at the Taco Shack that’s right on the premises If we return to Tulum we would definitely stay there again. The views from the house of the ocean was beautiful

Thank you for staying with us at Zorba! Zorba is the sister property to Mahayana Tulum. The two properties are 800m apart and both part of the Zorba Collective hospitality group. We love to host weddings and family groups on the beach. The views and private beachfront provide a wonderful connection to the sea and make travelling as a group very easy. We will pass your compliments to the chef at the Taco Bar. Both our properties now have guest only food options onsite for breakfast and lunch and drinks. We look forward to your next stay with us!

We spent a week at Casa de Las Palmas for my wedding, and it was such a magical time. I can't speak more highly of the on-site staff (Miriam in particular) and how accommodating they are. Mahayana is a very special, unique place which allows you to feel secluded while having all of the attractions of Tulum nearby. I highly recommend staying here.

As soon as you pass through the gate to Mahayana off the busy hotel zone road, you know you have entered a very special place, We were fortunate to have rented Casa Gaia which is situated only 50 to 60 steps from the sea and yet it is very private. You would be hard pressed to find a more relaxing and romantic spot. From the spectacular sunrises to the sound of the waves lulling you to sleep at night, this is an incredible oasis. The staff are second to none from pre-trip communications with Snow through to the welcome and helpfulness of Chabely & Miriam during our stay. Although we did not get to know their names, the security, groundskeepers and housekeepers are extremely attentive and friendly. We highly recommend taking advantage of the breakfast / taco stand on site where Chef Juan prepares delicious breakfasts and probably the best fish tacos we have ever eaten! All in all, a wonderful stay. We are already planning our next trip.!

Thank you for the kind review! Casa Gaia is one of our guest's favourite for the incredible location right by the sea, and the amount of privacy considering it is so central. It was our absolute pleasure to have you stay and we will pass your kind works to our concierge team (Miriam + Chabely) as well as our wonderful grounds and housekeeping staff. We will also share the your gracious comments with Juan for the amazing tacos he chef's up for the exclusive enjoyment of Mahayana guests. We look forward to your return at Mahayana! You are always welcome.

Mahayana is a perfect place to stay in Tulum. We rented three of the five homes: Casa de las Palmas, Casa Bonita, and Casa Gaia and couldn’t have asked for anything better. Other family members rented the two remaining houses so we had the entire property for our week long family gathering. The location of Mahayana is ideal. We walked everywhere, both by street and beach. Before our arrival, Snow, Miriam and Chabely were so helpful and responsive in everything, from choosing which houses would be best for our extended family to coordinating the shuttle to/from Cancun airport. During our stay, Miriam and Chabely were always available to help in anyway. Upon arrival and departure, the security staff quickly and efficiently handled all our luggage. We ordered groceries ahead from Riviera Maya Grocery, so our refrigerators were stocked when we arrived after a long day of travel. (We highly recommend this additional service.) The homes are beautiful, spacious, unique and comfortable and the property is designed with natural vegetation for privacy between houses. The beach is amazing with Caribbean white sand and warm water and the sunrises were spectacular every single day. Mahayana is magical and we are all ready to go back!!

We just came back from our trip to amazing Casa Bonita at Mahayana Villas and we already can’t wait to come back to this paradise on Earth Everything about this place is perfect. All the villas look simply stunning and the beach is so quiet even being in the center of Tulum Beach you feel isolated from the noise but the party feel is couple of steps to the left or to the right. The design of villa inside is unforgettable. We must mention the cleaning cervices are beyond great, we have witnessed the way the team prepares villas for new visitors and it was impressive. The last two days of our trip we stayed at Villa Zorba resort and were just as pleased with our stay. This was our 3rd visit to Zorba & Mahayana and we would not trust to stay at any other place while visiting Tulum. We would like to say thank you to all the management & staff of Zorba and Mahayana for creating this unique place where we can unwind and recharge 🙏

We rented the entire property for our family and wedding party. It was such an incredible experience having all of our loved ones just steps away from each other's villas. The staff keeps the property spotless from the daily housekeeping services to the daily exterior maintenance. The villas are all clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The pools and oceanfront views are breathtaking. We could not have found a better location to spend our wedding room and will cherish our stay forever! The property manager Miriam was such a pleasure and helped make our stay perfect.

Thank you for trusting us with such a special holiday! It is truly magical to have the full property exclusive to friends and family. The full buyout option is great for weddings, reunions, and special gatherings. Our onsite team is dedicated to keeping the full property and homes looking their best so you can relax in the comfort of private villas with the ease of hotel-style service. So happy you had a great stay! We will pass your kind words to Miriam and the rest of our staff.

What a amazing time we had at “Casa Bonita” Mahayana, Mirian (host) decorate Casa Bonita with her “touches” Spreading flowers everywhere!! Also arranged shuttle from airport and groceries Easy to communicate and fast response. The property beach front is perfect for swimming and sun batting., alongside with your kayak, long board paddling. (Provided by Mahayana) We were so,so lucky. Had the entire property for ourselves. Immaculately clean. Not only the house but the entire beach front was cleaned every single day! They also provided water daily for us 24hrs surveillance Staff was friendly Well Illuminated at night I wish I could download some pics to show how beautiful this place is. Location is perfect to walk around and “taste” what Tulum has is best.
