Looking for a special place to spend your next holiday with family or friends? Sombras del Viento (Shadows of the Wind) is a top choice exclusive villa for your dream vacation. Built in 2010, the original design can accommodate up to 16 people with the intention of offering both independence via private room entrances and intimacy with large communal areas for the entire group to enjoy.
Sombras del Viento is nestled between the lush tropical jungle and Soliman Bay, the whole area being a nature reserve. This tropical getaway will encourage you to wind down from daily life back home. Sun, sand, pool and the Caribbean Sea…..
Sombras incorporates a blend of natural materials (exotic woods, palapas, palm thatched roofs) with luxurious finishes (marble, granite). High end furnishings complete the decor, while nature does it own thing outside.
Sombras del Viento has 3 separate units:
BORA: has a living room with American style kitchen fully furnished & 1 king size bedroom, 1 futon, and a large covered deck overlooking the beach.
SIROCCO: has a living room with American style kitchen fully furnished, 1 king size bedroom room facing the sea & a second room with 1 queen size and 1 single bed facing the tropical garden and a large terrace facing the beach.
MISTRAL: On the second level, you will be amazed with the beauty of the panorama that awaits you. Large common spaces, an outside living room with covered terraces, allow you to convene and admire the beauty as an entire group.
Mistral features 2 large bedrooms with A/C and private bathrooms to complete the package.
One bedroom features a king size bed facing the sea and the second bedroom features a queen size bed with private terrace facing the tropical garden. These 2 separate accommodations are for 2–5 people; enjoy the sea breeze as you relax in comfortable outdoor loungers.
On the top floor, under the palapa, a Caribbean atmosphere is assured. You will discover a large king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom. It also has a private terrace where you will enjoy the beautiful picture-frame view of the bay.
Last but not least, Sombras del Viento features a final ocean view room with 2 single beds with shared bathroom.
Soliman Bay is a very laid back residential beach community with 24-hour security, with fantastic snorkeling, kayaking, beach combing and relaxation. Guests who have vacationed here are amazed by the sunrises, sunsets, stars at night and incredibly clear water.
Soliman Bay beach is also a nesting area for 2 species of endangered sea turtles. If you are here during the summer and fall months, please be respectful of marked nests and hopefully you will be lucky enough to see a mama lay her eggs or a nest hatch. Please do not use bright lights at night or flash photography.
If you feel the need to get out and socialize, shop or dine in a restaurant, Akumal and Tulum are about 10 minutes north or south respectively. Within Soliman Bay Pandano is a great restaurant within walking distance from this villa. For those who want to do some exploring in the area there is plenty to do. Take a ferry ride out of Playa del Carmen to Cozumel for the day, play golf at the nearby Riviera Maya Golf Club, go for a jungle ATV ride, zipline, swim in cenotes and more!
