Fortunate enough to stay at Zorba Tulum Beach Houses for 5 days recently and the Zorba team took care of us as if we were their own. They organically made us feel like home. From Chavely welcoming us to Juan catering our hunger at the restaurant to Nenfy always helping us with our coffee in the morning. It was a strong team of dedicated men and women working hard to maintain this beautiful oasis and without a doubt they deserve all the praise. There's something special about this place and that's the sense of community. How a few beach homes become one and every neighbor is naturally pulled to connect with the little community of groups staying at Zorba. Personally, it’s a magical synergy that showed me when people stay in a unique place like this during a specific time, each house is meant to cross paths and you inevitably connect with them one way or another. It’s all a matter of being open enough to receive and get to know your neighbor. With that well get into Shakira, the friendliest cat around who is said to stay in the home she feels most welcome. She spends her days walking around the space and is protective of other cats intruding. We did treat her as our pet so if you are allergic, just choose not to feed her. There are a few deep blue hammocks by the pool perfect for reading and relaxing while listening to the stone wall waterfall that serves as a background to the pool. Its only steps away from the pop-up style restaurant and a large wooden picnic table overlooking the beach. It’s the best way to enjoy a meal with friends and family or a moment to admire the view. The hotel offers bikes, lounge chairs as well as green bean bags on the sand and since it’s a small community there was always space available. Apart from the people concept, let’s get into the aesthetics of this place. There where so many conversations about the creative design of Zorba. To begin with, the entrance lobby is like an open living room. A long wave seating area planked by an even grander wooden slab table. Above it a yoga and rec space with a ping pong table that has sliding glass windows to bring the outside in during vinyasa. After the first day there, the group rarely used the front door unless we went out to explore the town. Most of the time we were walking back and forth from the patio and opened the space by sliding the glass doors, it just felt right. The continuity of the all-white organic curves of the architecture brought a fresh cool environment (no sharp edges). The natural wood elements gave off tones of brown accents that numbs the view to promote relaxation and the desire to step into nature. Dark river stone inlay designs in each shower, blue glass bottles fixed into the white walls gave off an Eco-friendly feel and multicolored designs on the Talavera sinks gave the bathroom space a pop of color. Suddenly your showers became a space to meditate as you look out the open window with palm trees and green leaves slowly dancing. All throughout the house where hints of copper, light blue, bone white, and sand invited the comfort of the beach in the most subtle way. There’s so much more to say and appreciate about the beauty of these homes, very well thought out and something to experience. Finally, the Tulum beach can only speak for itself and has to be seen and enjoyed without words or pictures. One of the best crystal-clear waters for miles to come and there's nothing better than being seconds away from your own private beach access. It’s an experience to have and remember that you'll want to revisit. Zorba is a tropical and spiritual gem. Until next time :)

Property's Favourite Review
First forget about sargassum, this was one if our biggest worries, we visited Tulum by the second half of August 2020 and the beach was perfectly clean! We never used the pool at the villa just because the ocean was too perfect, the pool looks beautiful as the pictures and it lights up the condominium during the night and it looks lovely. They do have two securities guards at night, the front gate is locked after 7:00pm and we felt very safe all the time. The location could not be better only few minutes from Nomade, Be Tulum and other cool restaurants in the area. We didn’t rent a car. Chabely the Villa’s Concierge scheduled our pick up and drop off to the Airport, it was very convenient and fair rate for a Van for 7 with luggages, worked very well. For everything else we used the local taxis, just negotiate the rate first and have the change ready and it works perfectly. Sorry there is no Uber in Tulum. All the villas are lovely, the PH is on the top of Villa 5, both are the closest to the beach, the others villas are just few steps away we were never bothered by the mosquitos at the house, the ocean breeze did the job well. Some hotels that we walked by the evening the mosquitos were out of control. Keep this in mind and just be ready to deal with the mosquitos is part of the Tulum vibes :) The house is perfect, A/C works beautifully quiet, great water shower pressure, beautiful design with polished concrete and recycled wood, everything super clean and comfortable. I can’t think about anything negative about Zorba. Covid didn’t seem real there, the beach was nicely quiet and social distance everywhere. All restaurants are outdoors anyway. Some you can go walk by the beach, we felt pretty save in all points. Beautiful vacation! Thank you Zorba team for your hospitality.

Thank you for the kind and detailed review! We have been blessed with beautiful pristine beach and clear seas this year - it has been amazing. Great to hear you felt safe and well cared for during your time at Zorba as well. We want to see our guests happy. The vibe has truly been magical along the beach with businesses open and plenty of spaciousness and outdoor enjoyment. We treat regularly for mosquitos at Zorba as we do not want them to bother our guests. It was a true pleasure to host your group on the beach and we hope you visit us again soon!

We just returned from 5 wonderful days at Zorba Villa #4. It was an absolutely perfect vacation. The villa was amazing. The rooms were well decorated and the a/c worked well. The Wifi in the house was also very good. The villa was steps from the beach. I highly recommend having Chef Irma prepare a meal. She prepared breakfast for us daily and dinner on the evening when we arrived. Having breakfast outside next to the ocean was one of the highlights of our trip. Chably was great to work with and was very accommodating. The villas are within walking distance to many restaurants. You can easily walk to the " hot spots" in the middle of the hotel zone or choose to stay a little bit closer for a more relaxed atmosphere. We really enjoyed the restaurant immediately next door and the BE Hotel restaurant. Chably arranged all of our transportation and it was seamless. There was a security guard on the premises. We will defiantly be back in the very near future.

Thank you for the kind review! Wonderful to hear you had a fabulous stay at Zorba Villa 4. We will share your compliments with our chef - Irma's private chef services are great for groups and there is something special about eating outside by the sea. Irma can prepare a service in the privacy of your personal Villa and serve it in your Villa or outside if you prefer. Chabely is a pro at taking care of the details like chef and shuttle so you can relax and enjoy yourself while on your holiday. Even though Tulum is safe, it is nice to have security onsite at night to monitor the property so guests can fully relax and in case of an emergency. The Zorba property is for guests only to maintain the peaceful vibe and safety of our guests. We look forward to your next visit!

We recently rented out all 6 of Zorba's beautiful and private villas for our extended wedding weekend in October. My husband and I stayed in the penthouse while our guests were in the other villas. We can't say enough about how much we loved hosting our wedding at Zorba. My husband and I have visited Tulum 4x, each time staying at a different property and this was by far our favorite. The location is one of the best in Tulum. Far enough away from the busiest areas but also close enough to grab a taxi, bike, or even walk. The accommodations are pristine and the daily housekeeping is well-managed. We were given fresh towels daily and the cleaning of the floors from sand was especially welcomed. The property is also well prepared and maintained, constantly keeping the two pools clean and the grounds picked up and kept. There is a nightly security guard which is a nice touch for safety. We also had a chance to try the snack bar and the tacos were amazing. Chabely was a wonderful host, and was quick to respond to us on whatsapp if we needed her. Snow was also very helpful via email when we had questions pertaining to hosting our wedding (especially during the pandemic). Our friends and family who attended and stayed at Zorba are still boasting about their stay! There have already been talks of planning a return anniversary trip in the near future. Tulum is always beautiful and Zorba enhances that beauty so much more! Thank you again for the best weekend of our lives spent at Zorba!

There are more and more villa options in Tulum now but Zorba really is amazing and a dream come true. The layout is private while still providing access to all the wonderful cuisine and best activities you'd want to experience in and around Tulum. Everyone raves about the chef for good reason and the jungle views you can access from above are absolutely breathtaking. You won't find anything else like it! The staff truly cares and is always there if you need anything at all. The beach is pristine and whether you want a full property buy out or just one of the villas you can't go wrong.
