A natural jewel nestles between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range that snakes through the Mexican state of Oaxaca. A top-ten surfing and popular fishing destination, the tiny coastal town of Puerto Escondido invites with its laid-back atmosphere and beachside vibe. Hoteliers Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha, the duo behind Grupo Habita, have transformed a pristine stretch of Oaxacan coastline into a private paradise for beach bums and thrill seekers alike.
Located directly on the beach and surrounded by nature, rustic bungalows soak up the laidback seaside atmosphere. Each hut bears the traditional palapa roof, but with tradition comes innovation. Architect Federico Rivera Rio modernized these classic beach bungalows with amenities perfectly attuned to the traveler looking to unwind after a day of surfing or sunbathing.
Minimal, yet comfortable design elements are amplified by the myriad opportunities that the resort offers guests for both group activities and private relaxation in their natural hideaway. A private pool and sundeck offers personal sanctuary outdoors, while the inside of each room features tropical wooden floors, stucco walls, and polished concrete bathrooms.
