Casa Palapa

Outsized oceanfront house, 4 bedrooms, jacuzzi, astonishing infinity views over the sea, rivulet-like swimming pool

Casa Palapa is an outsized oceanfront house in the far Northern wing of Papaya Playa. Recently built with some facilities yet to be completed to form a selfcontained private holiday compound, it currently embodies a grand suite on top, a two bedroom suite and a double room on the ground level.

The grand suite encapsulates two spacious bedrooms of which the master is bestowed with a double-king bed – each with a private bathroom; a lounge appointed with a Jacuzzi, and a vast sun terrace. The two bedroom suite downstairs has one furnished with the king size bed while the second is a twin room with two single beds. Bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, connect through a lounge. Private double room is a large space with a view, furnished with a double bed and appointed with a bathroom. 

All rooms boast minimal design which facilitates one's appreciation of nature. Tightly embracing the house, it renders it with the most lavish decoration.
Floor to ceiling windows allow maximum light and a feeling of openness that brings the outside in and the inside out. The sliding windows open wide take in the breeze and allow guests to enjoy physical contact with the astonishing infinity views in the early hours when the sun proclaims the new day from below the horizon.

Casa Palapa has an open-sided thatch-roofed space amounting to 400m² (totaling the space up to 9,200m²) which serves as a giant lounge appointed with a full kitchen, generous 20-seater dining table, capacious wine rack, floor lamps, large sofas, colourful bean bag chairs, and other seating, all distributed around the area forming functional and comfortable clusters. Naturally illuminated during the day, at night the light comes from some 30 variously sized and shaped handmade wicker fixtures hanging from the 15 metre high ceiling. The ocean side of the house is given in its entirety to a rivulet-like swimming pool. Long and curving, it seamlessly connects the palapa to the house, where the pool commences with a lesser depth. It culminates where the beautifully massive staircase of the house takes one directly to the beach.

At the rear of the "Palapa House" lies a pristine jungle gently transpierced with a pathway winding in between palm trees. It leads to the guarded gates with a parking lot in their proximity. A few steps away from Casa Palapa is an open-through tropical chapel standing on the rocks overlooking the ocean. It is spacious enough to seat a congregation of 105 persons.
Considering its size and secluded location, Casa Palapa is the ideal accommodation for families and small groups of up to 10. Aside from the rooms, the tremendous space of Palapa is perfect for large ceremonies and events.

The "Casa Palapa" is the outcome of collaboration by a number of architects, engineers, landscape designers and interior decorators united in their vision of home (temporary or otherwise) as an organic continuum living space intimately interlinked with nature and culture. These two forces charge the structure with extraordinary energies – physical and symbolic – the effect of which is pleasantly astonishing.

Yoga classes are offered Monday through Sunday at 8:30am at the Spa Palaypa. Please enquire with the Spa regarding available Toltec Power Dance, Tai-Chi, and Chi-Gong classes. Private classes are available on request.
