We are thrilled to share some incredible news that will surely ignite your wanderlust! Zorba and Mahayana Tulum have been prominently featured in the Experiences Collection of the December edition of National Geographic Traveller UK. This recognition highlights the exceptional nature of our private villas, making them a must-visit for families and romantic travellers seeking unforgettable experiences in the Riviera Maya.

National Geographic Traveller UK— The Collection is a series of annual high-end bookazines, filled with engaging editorial and photography content. The publication showcases the destinations, experiences and properties with a story to tell. Each issue includes an A-Z travel directory, showcasing the best experiences and places to stay around the world.

We are delighted both the Mahayana Beach Homes and the Zorba Beach Villas in Tulum were selected to be included in this coveted list of places to explore in the most alluring locations around the globe.

Mahayana is a hidden gem in the heart of Tulum with a private beachfront and coveted central location. Mahayana offers an exclusive collection of 4 stunning holiday homes and an eclectic Treehouse situated throughout the tropical beachfront property with soft white sand everywhere and an alluring seaside pool. Designed in harmony with nature and embracing a barefoot luxury feel, Mahayana is the perfect place for families and small groups to stay together in the boutique hotel area of Tulum. Guests enjoy more personal space than a traditional hotel yet benefit from the care of a genuine and dedicated staff. A concierge team welcomes guests and is available daily throughout the stay. 

Located in the desirable South Beach area of Tulum Mexico, just 800m from Mahayana, Zorba Tulum is our sister paradise with an exclusive collection of villas with the same bohemian flair also on the shore of the Caribbean Sea. With only 5 villas and an expansive Penthouse suite on the property guests enjoy personal attention from the caring staff and a peaceful holiday.

The soft light aesthetic of the villas and pristine private white sand beach inspire complete relaxation of body and soul. Relax by the pool, gather for yoga, and pop up to the Zorba rooftop for breathtaking jungle and sea views. 

Natural design elements include handcrafted tiles, reclaimed colonial doors, and a mix of recycled coloured glass, wood, and soft white walls. Hand-woven cotton bedspreads from Oaxaca and luxurious toiletries made with Sacred Mayan honey are additional details that connect visitors to the feel and smells of Mexico. 

For lunch on property grab some fish tacos made with traditional warm corn tortillas and a fresh lime margarita from the guest-only taco bar and pass the day away by the sea. 

The Zorba Collective properties feature family-friendly amenities include swimming pools, private Tulum beachfront, ping pong table, water toys, and the beach’s soft white sand. While there is no need to leave the comfort of the properties, the villas are a perfect home base from which to explore the area’s natural wonders and historical landmarks.
