Cuixmala, a collection of luxurious private villas and casitas, is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Built in 1988 by Sir James Goldsmith, Cuixmala was originally conceived as a private tropical hideaway for family and friends. It is now an eco-resort based on green culture and sustainability. Over the last twenty-six years, it’s guests have included Tom Cruise, George Lucas, and Madonna. Cuixmala means “the soul’s resting place” in Spanish and from what I can see, it indeed looks incredibly relaxing and restful. In addition to rest and relaxation, there is also an array of activities: snorkeling, horse-back riding, tennis, fishing, mountain biking, volleyball on the beach, surfing, and even a private yacht that can be rented. There are three categories of accommodations at Cuixmala. Casa Cuixmala is the boutique hotel located on the beach – all suites and bungalows. Then, there are three private villas with their own staff and pool. Finally, the Casitas, which is a collection of 10 one, two and three bedroom little houses set in a tropical garden and share a swimming pool and clubhouse. It is obviously a breathtaking resort, but it’s their reviews: “magical, unforgettable, outstanding, nothing short of superb” about their service and food that have me thinking, maybe Mexico is my next trip?
