OVERVIEW \ Stylish beachfront villa STARTING AT $1150
Tucked behind layers of lush palms on a pristine beach in Soliman Bay, Villa La Semilla invites guests into a world of secluded indulgence amid a stunning natural setting. This private five-bedroom villa boasts a rooftop pool and panoramic observation deck, a tropical garden with a fountain and pond, lounge and veranda with an infinity pool that unfolds onto a private beach. The villa, bright and airy with light interiors and simple, well-made furnishings, features a common cooking, dining and living space that is perfect for long, convivial evenings with family and friends—often centered around the outdoor wood-fire oven and grill. An in-house chef is also on-hand to ensure that guests can sample an array of Mexican dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. Some of the design elements such as the vintage furniture and handmade mosaic tile fused with organic elements of wood and concrete resemble its stylish sister property, Hotel La Semilla, in Playa Del Carmen. However, unique to this villa is the large open floor plan that extends through living and dining spaces to the sprawling terrace and infinity pool all the way to the crystal blue waters of Soliman Bay. It must be experienced to truly be appreciated.
Villa La Semilla was created with heart and intention, believing that when you nurture something, it blossoms right before your eyes into something extraordinary. The brand of La Semilla, the Spanish word for seed, is rooted in simple beauty and simple pleasures, respect for all living creatures and the quiet brilliance of nature. The owners, Angie and Alexis, encourage the slow approach to life where quiet moments with nature allow you to disconnect with the busy, fast-paced world and reconnect with the earth, each other, and yourself.
Each of the 5 uniquely designed suites feature a terrace, sitting area and large en-suite bathroom. Some rooms cater to guests needing two beds, which is ideal for children, while others play host to king size beds. The third-floor Master Suite also has its own plunge pool and large terrace with private outdoor sitting area with incredible views of the turquoise Bay.
Adhering to the aesthetics of coastal Mexico and in harmony with nature, the interiors are characterized by an abundance of natural materials and simple, well-made furnishings. Off-white walls and white sofas keep the property’s visual identity minimalistic, while the occasional tropical touch manifests itself in the form of colorfully patterned bathroom tiles and local artworks. Light fixtures also range from rattan to glass to chandelier, providing a unique undertone to each room.
To ensure that guests feel taken care of, the Villa includes maintenance and housekeeping services in the form of a sweet couple that lives in a separate home at the entrance of the property. They are available 24 hours to assist in anything you may need. The home is cleaned daily.
Additional services such as in-house massage, yoga, pilates, water-sports, car rental and airport trasnfer are available upon request.
