A secluded refuge carved from the primitive Mayan jungle near the small village of Xcalacoco.
To ensure that the resort will blend seamlessly with this undeveloped territory.
Twenty-nine villas, each with a private pool, have been carefully constructed from natural wood and stones indigenous to the region.
The resort is a proud member of the Small Luxury Hotels exclusive collection.
In keeping with its serene setting, the resort will allow no motorized vehicles on the property. At night, artificial lighting will not dim star-filled skies. Torches, adding to the tranquil ambience of this unique retreat, will light the grounds instead.
Ikal del Mar true ecology concept:The jungle was here before us and we believe that we are intruding upon it.
For this reason, paths and walkways carefully meander avoiding older growths. Younger trees are allowed to grow within the paths, further reinforcing that philosophy.
