A few days spent in paradise. Perfect location, right on the beach. Lovely staff. If you need a transfer to and from the hotel, no problem. Everything will be organized. You can enjoy breakfast and lunch on site. For two people, I highly recommend the Casa Gaia apartment, simply amazing.

I have stayed at Mahayana a couple of times before and will keep coming back as it is one of the two places on the beach you can have the feeling of being in a natural oasis you would have discovered many years ago on Tulum Beach. After a long day of travel, our group of five friends arrived at Mahayana to an amazingly delicious dinner under the stars we had prearranged with the property. They have a chef, Irma, who I would highly recommend to cook for you at least once as you will not want to leave this property once you arrive!
This past trip was last minute so we broke our stay up between Mahayana and their equally stunning sister property Zorba. This was the first time I stayed in the newly renovated largest house on the front of the property that overlooks palms and sea as well as the new private pool. The home is designed with a timeless beach aesthetic and was such a comfortable, private place for all of us to hang out together. The private pool right on the beach is a rare luxury and such an enjoyable way to cool down or cap off a day of touring or just playing in the ocean with any of the kayaks, paddle boards or even boogie boards which we ended up having so much fun in the waves with! Out in front, just steps away, were our own private loungers which was where the deep relaxation happens, just soaking in the sun and going for refreshing dips in the ocean or pool…paradise!!!

We had four couples stay at Mahayana Beach Homes in December 2019 and it could not have been a better experience. The staff onsite were very accommodating, the housekeeping was fantastic, but you very much felt that you had the place to yourself. Location was perfect being on the beach and walking distance to a number of hotels and restaurants. We will definitely be returning!

We decided to go to Tulum as a last minute trip and stayed in the Casa Bonita home at Mahayana Beach Homes. It was perfect! 3 bedroom home right on the beach with a pool out the back door. The property felt very private and safe and was well maintained. The staff cleaned the pool daily and kept the grounds raked and clear of any palm tree debris.
Snow was great with helping us get our reservation booked and Chabely, the property manager, was fantastic. She was there to greet us upon arrival and available for any questions or advice on getting around Tulum. Could not have asked for a better place to stay for a beach vacation. We will definitely be going back as soon as this crazy Covid-19 pandemic is over.

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.

We held our daughters wedding in Tulum and I rented out Casa Bonita for my family and Casa Las Palmas for the bride and bridesmaids. It was awesome and exceeded my expectations by a long shot. It may seem expensive, but for this larger group, it was economical and the setting could not be better! This is the most picturesque location on the beach (I walked it all) and in an excellent location for convenience. It’s right next to a yoga studio (girls loved it), then the The Real Coconut and La Zebra for great coffees, food and drinks. In the middle of the beach zone, we could walk to most venues and restaurants all while very private and quiet. It was perfect.
Thanks to Snow for seamless booking, Miriam, our on site host, who catered to our every need and became our friend and Irma, who we hired to cook the bridesmaid luncheon on site so the girls could maximize beach time. All agreed the lunch was one of their best meals on the trip!
Casa Mahayana made our stay so relaxing on such a big weekend. It was superb!

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.!

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 🙏

This is NOT a hotel or a resort. It is a special ocean front property with four very special, unique homes. Each one has it's own personality (and name) and they are so authentic and perfect. The studio, named Casa Gaia is right on the oceanfront, and perfect for two people. We stayed in Casa Gaia for 8 nights and didn't want to leave. The home is perfectly outfitted for what you'll need to have a truly enjoyable stay and not feel like you're missing anything. The property entirely is full of palm trees and plants and other vegetation that make it feel like the jungle a bit, with lots of shade everywhere. The property staff were fantastic, and took such great care of us and answered all of our questions. The housekeeping staff were really great too, and they really cared for our house like it was their own. We know we found the perfect place for us that will make a return trip next year even better. There is no reason to look for anything else, We were fortunate to meet the owner, his wife and children, and even their golden retriever. They were so friendly and nice that it made our stay even more special. We can't say enough about Chabely, the onsite property manager who was so helpful and attentive and really keeps it all together. This place was so magical and special we had a very hard time leaving.

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.
