Built at the entrance of the Yal-Ku lagoon, it has a unique view of both the ocean and the lagoon. Bordered by a rocky coastline, Villa Gauguin has direct access to the lagoon, a natural aquarium where you can snorkel, canoe or simply swim in its crystalline waters, looking for sea turtles which frequent the lagoon.
Villa Gauguin is an ideal place for those seeking a refined and luxurious environment for their holidays. This villa was built in a minimalist style with pure and simple lines allowing a full integration with the natural surroundings. The architectural principle of Villa Gauguin is the “sea” and all its shades.
Once you open the entrance door, you will be amazed by the 180° view of the Yal-Ku lagoon. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow a perfect integration of the house and the sea.

Villa Gauguin is located in Akumal, without doubt the quietest and most picturesque village at the heart of the Mayan Riviera.
Akumal is only 22 miles from Playa del Carmen (the fastest growing town in Latin America), 55 miles from Cancun International Airport and 16 miles from the Tulum Mayan ruins.
Akumal, “Turtle’s nest” in Mayan, is a favorite place for the sea turtles to lay their eggs. Akumal has two bays with beautiful beaches, ideal for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving as the corral reef is very closed to the coastline.
In the surroundings of Akumal, there are some 200 entrances to the “cenotes”, subterranean caves with depths up to 170 yards and very clear waters. The main centers for scuba diving in “cenotes” are in Akumal.
For the golf fanatics, the Playacar resort in Playa del Carmen, has a world-famous 18 holes course and in Puerto Aventuras (15 mn from Akumal), there is a 9 holes course.
For nature lovers, Akumal is close to various ecological parks like:
- Xel-Ha – 10 Miles
- Sian Ka’an – 25 Miles south of Akumal
- X-Caret – 20 Miles from Akumal
- Aktun-Chen Caves – 3 Miles of Akumal
There are two sandy beaches located in Akumal.
- Akumal Beach:
Located at the entrance of the village (2km from the villa)
- Half Moon Bay Beach:
Located 300m from Villa Gauguin
