Description of the Riviera Maya vacation apartment rental
Located in the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve, Casa Nalum rests along the white sand beaches of the Mexican Caribbean. The barrier reef is within swimming distance, and the lagoon located at the back of the property leads you to ancient Mayan canals. This luxury residence sets new standards for eco-design and comfort, and brings you full-board services that include massages, sailing, snorkeling and fine cuisine.

The house has many open areas where you can relax, read a book or sunbathe. The roof terrace has exceptional views of both the sunrises over the sea and sunsets over the lagoon. Cool off with a dip in the pristine swimming pool. You can dine in the formal dining area or other parts of the house like the rooftop, the terraces, the deck or even the beach. Cuisine can be tailored to your taste and is based on a fusion of Mexican and European flavors. Your personal chef pays particular attention to cooking with only the freshest ingredients. The friendly staff, including housekeeping and butler will be delighted to attend to your needs and make your holiday unforgettable!

The living area is located at the centre of the house with a large sofa where you can play games, watch films on a 120-inch cinema screen, listen to music or just enjoy the views of the sea. With a high palapa-style ceiling you will really feel the tropical vibration. Access to the outdoors is a breeze!

Four immaculate bedrooms accommodate up to eight guests at Casa Nalum. Children are welcome. All of the bedrooms have air conditioning, and the bathrooms offer Aveda beauty products. Three bedrooms provide terrace access and hammocks, and the master suite includes Sky TV. The fourth bedroom ladder leads to the attic level.

You will cherish the memories you take with you from your stay at this bijou villa located within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Regional Information - The Reserve
“Sian Kaan” is translated from Mayan as “where the sky is born”.
The Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve was established in 1986 by presidential decree, and in 1987 the reserve was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sian Kaan faces the greatest challenge of conservation: to find a way to integrate human activities without compromising other forms of life contained within its boundaries.
Sian Kaan is approximately 1.3 million acres in size and spans 120 kilometres from north to south (comprising almost one third of the Caribbean coast of Mexico). In 1994, an area of over 200,000 acres to the south of the Reserve was named a Protected Area of Flora and Fauna of Uaymil, increasing the continuous area of protected land.
The reserve contains three large core zones where human activity is limited by permission to scientific research. Low-impact human activities and sustainable development occur in the area of the reserve known as the buffer zone. The human population is estimated at 2,000 inhabitants, the majority of which are located in the coastal regions, especially in the fishing villages of Punta Allen and Punta Herrero. Approximately one percent of the land within the reserve is privately owned.
The northernmost section of Sian Kaan (where Casa Nalum is) contains what is thought to be an ancient trade route through lagoons with ruins and mangrove channels between the cities of Tulum and Muyil.
Please note that staff at Casa Nalum will attentively clean 100 yards directly in front of the villa. Also the team cleans a further 300 yards in each direction from plastic bottles or any other inorganic material - not from organic material such as sea grass or drift wood that are part of nature.
