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
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.
