The Riviera Maya of Mexico begins south of Cancun and stretches down to Tulum. This Villa is located just south of the quiet relaxing village of Akumal, which is centrally located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
Central to his design is the inclusion of the mythological portals or gateways of Kukulcan. The land portal is made up of ceremonial steps and an immense Mayan arch of over 5000 square feet fitted in hand shaped limestone.
As you move into the house, one passes similar huge processional pillars, then the vista opens to Kukulcan’s ocean portal. The ocean portal consists of a 20 feet high vaulted ceiling and window.
Adjacent to the inside of the house begins the 50 foot long pool which reaches outside past the window towards the ocean. The Caribbean ocean and reef are in the background.
