A truly amazing setting, Villa Luminosa faces south overlooking Tankah Bay and the reef – with views on a clear day of the Tulum ruins and beyond. You can enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and experience the serenity that comes from privacy, the lush gardens, the music of birds in the palm trees, and the soothing sound of the waves over the reef . Villa Luminosa’s unique location on Tankah Bay provides for an always gentle breeze with no strong west winds. Because Tankah Bay has its own reef that acts as a breaker, the bay is tranquil with only lap waves at shore making snorkeling unbelievable in the calm clear waters. Tropical fish, rays, and sea turtles are seen in the bay and coral heads. This is some of the safest, easiest, and best snorkeling on the bay. A walk along the coral and sand beach is perfect for exploring the tide pools and for shelling. As an added plus, there are three restaurants on the bay—all within walking distance. Villa Luminosa is an expansive tropical paradise where inside and outside become one—a beautifully designed and decorated beachfront home with all the amenities you need for a perfect vacation. The rooms are spacious and decorated in a modern Mexican motif. A wide palapa roof porch with jungle tree supports (each its own piece of mother natures wondrous art) traverses the entire front of the main floor overlooking the beautiful vegetation of the grounds, palm tree tops, pool, beach and bay beyond. Reforested Tzalam wood Adirondeck lounges and a long dining table with chairs (made by local craftsmen in Bacalar) allow maximum enjoyment of this wonderful shaded outdoor space.- Behind are two generous bedrooms and baths on each side of a central great room furnished Mexican Equipale furniture along with a flat screen TV and DVD player. The dining area of the great room is furnished with a handmade dining room table designed by a local Mexican Architect, The focal point of the great room and the fully equipped kitchen is a naturally sculptured jungle tree that extends from the floor to the ceiling. There is also an office area with WiFi available throughout the house. -One of the highest rooftops on the bay allows for viewing the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets over water, stargazing, sunbathing, or dining. The pool level features an open courtyard with a giant gathering table for 12, outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, gas grill, and two more expansive bedrooms and baths that open to the pool deck. The large pool and pool deck provide ample space for swimming, playing in the water enjoying a drink on the built in pool bench. The deck offers shade for those who prefer to be out of the sun. The caretakers impeccably maintain the property daily and will provide the most delicious meals of pollo fajitas, tacos pastor, pollo en mole, or your selections from the extensive menu—and they will do all the shopping required. Your only cost for two meals (if you want them) is the cost of the food and tip for service. They live on the grounds and provide care and security throughout your entire stay. Parking is available in a secure garage.----Villa Luminosa’s lovely and private setting along with the impeccable service will make your stay memorable. You will leave Villa Luminosa renewed, rejuvenated, relaxed, and dreaming of your return.
