Tucked away in a grove of bananas, palm trees, and pristine gardens sit the peach-coloured walls of Hacienda Palancar, which takes its name from the second-largest coral reef in the world. This exquisite villa on the Maya Peninsula embraces Spanish colonial architecture to create a modern living environment that simply takes your breath away. Six years of painstaking planning and two years of careful building resulted in an exquisitely elegant villa, enveloped by sweeping verandas that link up the individual buildings within the complex. Floors made from Yucatan stone complement the Islamic-inspired grand miradors, allowing guests to dine under a flawless, star-filled night sky. The nine-bedroom villa sleeps up to 18 people in complete comfort. With everything from queen size canopy beds in several of the bedrooms, to exclusive guest buildings offering multiple bedroom arrangements, this hacienda benefits from a flexible configuration for any size group. All of the bedrooms have ensuite facilities, jungle views, and sublimely tranquil décor. One of the villa’s key features is that it puts sustainability at its heart. There are underground rainwater reserves that supply, filter and reuse the building's water. Power comes from the most extensive private array of solar panels in the country, reducing the building's carbon footprint to a mere toeprint. Step away from the elegant arches and sublime décor, and you're immediately on a soft, white-sand beach. The villa's butler service ensures that every need is met, while your bartender serves sunset cocktails every evening. Your personal chef creates delicious meals that focus on local produce and traditional flavours native to this part of Mexico, from delicious tacos to freshly-caught fish and seafood. Secluded and private, this spectacular hacienda sits in the middle of an 86-acre estate that merges man-made refinement with wild wonders. It’s a three-hour drive from Cancun Airport, or a 40-minute flight by private helicopter, making it easily accessible for international guests. On one side is the incredible Sian Ka’an Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the other sits the Capechen Lagoon and the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. Guided hikes are available, allowing you to explore this unique area. Finish the day with a bonfire on the beach as the sun sets into the Caribbean Sea. It's undoubtedly one of Mexico's most beautiful regions and a sensational destination for your holiday.
