Seemingly as a gesture of appreciation, the 12 Beach Villas at Mukul were built to pay tribute to the tropical, rolling surf of Playa Manzanillo. Above the entry vestibule hangs a chandelier made from custom-designed mussel shells. Bathrooms include separate his and hers vanity rooms, both leading to a liquid temple of monsoon showers and soaking tubs.
Outside, each Beach Villa includes a wrap-around deck, direct access to the beach, private swimming pool, outdoor lounging palapa and a secret garden with an outdoor shower. For added space, the two-bedroom villas are family compounds with their own private show kitchen, pantry and living room. It's barefoot luxury at its best.
