Villa Maria Tayrona

Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean Coast, Colombia

At a Glance

  • Remote and romantic this unusual boutique property offers the perfect escape in a completely unspoilt setting

  • For that added sense of privacy ask for one of the villas that are accessed by walking over their own hanging bridge!

  • Whether it’s beside the pool, down on the beach or even from the comfort of your own hammock on your terrace, the memorable sunsets are best enjoyed with a fruity punch or ice-cold beer

  • Put your phone away, disconnect from the outside world and simply enjoy the gorgeous tropical jungle surroundings, wind rustling through the trees and views out towards the Caribbean Sea

  • Take long walks along the wild palm fringed beaches, from where you’ll be able to observe the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountain range peeking out from behind the trees

To start planning your holiday to Villa Maria Tayrona


The secluded Villa Maria Tayrona is nestled within the tropical Colombian jungle offering views of the Caribbean Sea. Relax in a comfortable individually styled villa after a day exploring the gorgeous wild beaches and Tayrona National Park.

An hour from Santa Marta, Villa Maria is located ten minutes by foot to the lovely beach of Mata de Platano, reached via the hotel’s own private footpath, and just outside of the Tayrona National Park. The property consists of 27 rooms and bungalows, accessed by walking over a hanging bridge. Each one has traditional coastal features of a large thatched roof, wooden exterior, evocative of the indigenous communities of Tayrona and even its own hammock to relax in! Set amongst the jungle surroundings, the bungalows are connected by a stone path that snakes through the trees and some even by a suspended bridge. Wi-Fi is limited to the common areas only, so it makes disconnecting easier than ever, as well as offering blissful relaxation.

In the hotel grounds are some short walking trails through the jungle or alternatively guests can spend their time at the on-site pool.
