The accommodations of Nah Uxibal include all the comforts of home while sitting right on the soft white sand beach of beautiful Soliman Bay. Soliman Bay is a gated, private community consisting of private homes with 24 hour security. The turquoise Caribbean waters of Soliman are situated along the second largest Reef in the world, and are filled with corals and a wide variety of Sea life. Colorful schools of Fish, Rays, Sea Turtles, Puffers and Barracuda are just a few of the creatures that grace these waters. The water is calm thanks to the protective reef which runs between the two points of Soliman, providing safety from the open sea for the sea life as well as swimmers, kayakers and snorkelers. All this is just outside your door at Nah Uxibal.
The Nah Uxibal Villa is a great place for all sizes of families or groups of friends who would like to enjoy being together in a beautiful setting.
Nah Uxibal was created with the idea of providing a peaceful, private environment where guests can truly relax and rejuvenate. We are located on a quiet, residential bay with 24 hour security. The accommodations are comfortable and tastefully decorated, equipped with a large full kitchen, king beds, and ceiling fans. The upstairs suite consists of 2 bedrooms, each with king beds and a bath. Go up the rounded staircase once more to the 3rd level and to your right is the TV/movie area with 2 queen futons for additional sleeping. This is a great level for kids since they enjoy being up high in their own space looking down on the 2nd story below. On the other side of the 3rd level is a pool table for your enjoyment. If more sleeping area is needed the downstairs studios can be added in as well so Uxibal can be a 2-4 bedroom, depending on the needs of the guests.
The lower floor of the Main House consists of two downstairs studio units separated by a large open sitting area. Comfortable couches, and the sea breeze all make this central area perfect for reading or socializing while the natural breeze of the trade winds provide a natural and cooling. The Studios KIN and AKNA on either side of the open lobby are large fully equipped one room studios ideal for singles or couples. The beds in the studios have the option of King or two singles, depending on the needs of the group.
Drinking water and daily cleaning is provided for each unit, as well as kayaks, lounge chairs and shade palapas for guest use.
We are very lucky to have Javier and Victoria on site as caretakers. Not only are they wonderful at their jobs but are a warm and friendly couple happy to be there. They will do anything possible to help make your stay enjoyable. Your quarters will be cleaned daily (except Sunday) and linens changed every three days. You will feel very well taken care of in the hands of Javier and Victoria who will become good friends as well.
Lady is the friendly dog of Nah Uxibal. She loves to go on walks and is more than willing to be your "personal companion" during your stay. You will also meet many of the other dogs that live in the nearby homes and run free, so you will always have company while walking the beach. If you prefer not to have Lady's company, you only have to tell her once and she will understand. She is great with kids and wonderful watchdog, not to mention very lovable and sweet.
The Pristine waters of Soliman Bay, in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, provides fabulous snorkeling opportunities for all ages and levels of experience. Protected by the second largest reef in the world, the waters are calm and relatively shallow, making viewing easy and fun. A wide variety of corals and sea life grace these waters with their bright colors and textures. Swimming out to the reef is a great workout, or if you prefer you can take the kayak, tie off to a bouy, and enter the grand elk and staghorn corals.
Staying at Nah Uxibal is a truly magnificent experience, where you become part of an old and sacred world, one so exquisite in it's connectedness that we can't help but be gifted by it's incredible beauty. Closer in, and past the sea grass, (a very important part of the ecosystem) are many a little oasis of brain and other corals, perfect for kids or those who prefer to stay closer to land.
This world is for those who seek closer contact with nature, for here nature rules. The Riviera Maya Coast is a virtual explosion of color and surprise. It is a region for exploration & adventure, or a chance to just let go and relax in a hammock with a good book. Whatever you choose to do on vacation, you will love it at Nah Uxibal, everyone does. ~ Enjoy!...Read more

We loved it. Web photos are accurate. Stepped right out of our studio and just a few short steps to the beach. Take a walk left outside on the beach to the opening of the bay and see the tide pools. We saw a sea turtle and a ray fish just in the bay. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed for five nights of bliss...total relaxation and raw beauty. Upon arrival we were greeted by Javier and Victoria who are very warm and gentle people; they were always there if you needed them but never interfered with our privacy in any way. Dear Lady (the resident dog) was a pleasure as well; she too is very warm and gentle. Our casita (IK) was the perfect accommodation for my husband and I...very romantic and with everything we needed including a very comfortable king size bed; a terrific private, outdoor shower (palm tree included); and, a full kitchen! But, the very best part was our own private front patio right on the beach. You can't beat getting up in the morning, putting on your swim suit and sitting on your patio (basically on the beach) with a cup of coffee...looking out at the beautiful scenary and hearing just the sound of the breeze and the lapping of the water.
The location is very unique in that it is very private and the scenary to the north is purely natural and to the south just a small number of houses can be seen among the palm trees. We often felt like we were on an isolated island in the south pacific. It was heaven on earth and we barely left to do much of anything. We spent most of our time being on our patio or the beach reading, napping, talking. We also enjoyed occasional walks, some swimming and snorkeling. I would have to say it was the most enjoyable and relaxing vacation we have ever had. Additionally the weather was perfect with the constant breeze and no mosquitos!
If you are looking for relaxation, natural beauty,solitude and rejuvenation you have to visit Nah Uxibal!! You won't be disappointed.

This was our 4th vacation at magical Nah Uxibal, and it just keeps getting better. While the Riviera Maya has changed so much in the past 10 years, Nah Uxibal remains a serene slice of heaven! We love staying in a casita (either Ik or Ha), a mere 25 steps, through lush tropical foliage, to the beach. I can't imagine a better day, than waking up to gentle birdsong, an exquisite sunrise, and the sound of waves lapping at the beach. Our days were spent reading, relaxing on the beach, taking walks, with occasional time spent kayaking or snorkeling in the crystal clear water.
You can see & feel the love and passion for natural beauty, that Skip & Jeannette (she's a sweetie) have infused here. They are wonderful people and their "House of Good Energy" is exactly that. Javier & Victoria are so friendly, and it's a joy to see their smiling faces every day. It's always fun to chat with Rosa, and play with Lady and the other Soliman dogs! They all make us feel so welcome and like family!
Our beautiful casita, was charming, had great views and was well equipped with all that we needed...love the outdoor Bali shower!!! For us, it doesn't get any better than Nah Uxibal, our perfect place to de-stress and relax. We can't wait to go back!!!
