Stylish and exclusive hideaway set on a secluded white sand beach reached only by boat.

Matachica Resort and Spa is a stylish and exclusive hideaway set on a secluded white sand beach that can be reached only by boat from the town of San Pedro. In spite of the luxurious surroundings, the ambience is decidedly laid-back.

Each of the 26 thatched cottages and villas is boldly painted in the bright colours of tropical fruits. The interiors, where décor is more subtle with white walls creating a bright, cool and spacious feel, are individually decorated with hand-painted murals, and many of the furnishings have been collected from Mexico and Central America: the result is an exceptional comfortable space brimming with character. All have roomy bathrooms with hand-painted Mexican tiles, and a veranda with hammocks. 

The large main lobby has a spacious lounge and reading room with comfy sofas and soothing music. The spa offers massages combined with aromatherapy or a body mask and other beauty treatments. 

There is also a large freshwater infinity pool and Jacuzzi. The resort can arrange diving, snorkelling and fishing at extra cost, while there are complimentary kayaks, dinghies, surfboards and snorkelling gear. You can also borrow a bike to explore the surroundings.
