“All human beings need spiritual commitment. Otherwise they become counting machines and believe that every aspect of nature is no more than an instrument that can be operated, mended or replaced.“ – Sir James Goldsmith
“Each generation has a duty to commit to a contract between the past, the present and the future.”
– Sir James Goldsmith
Created by Sir James Goldsmith, knighted for his services to ecology, the once private estate is now open as a destination for discerning travelers. Cuixmala is located on Mexico’s breathtaking Pacific Coast, in the state of Jalisco. Río Cuixmala courses along its southern border, from its northern boundary, vast hills look out over the coconut plantation towards the Pacific Ocean, and to the east, bamboo groves and mango trees number in their thousands.
“Nothing is more exciting than seeing a house that looks like a fantasy movie. This is the feeling when seeing Casa Cuixmala but the environment is even more idyllic than the construction.“ – Architectural Digest
The coastline affords a variety of rich landscape at Cuixmala. There are an array of beaches, from picture-postcard tranquility, to rocky bluffs jutting out into the powerful Pacific. The landscape ranges from lush jungle, coconut palm groves and lagoons, to sweeping savannah and grasslands. Integrated with respect into these different environments are not only the main house of Casa Cuixmala, but three large villas, six bungalows, and ten casitas.
The 40 rooms at Cuixmala are spread across three distinct accommodation types. From the iconic Suites of the original house, Casa Cuixmala, and hidden Bungalows with exceptional views, to the complete seclusion of Villas nestled into the hillside, and the traditional charm of the Casitas; at Cuixmala, expect the extraordinary. Indoor-outdoor living reigns supreme at Casa Cuixmala’s Suites and Bungalows, with a private pool and relaxation area spilling onto the beach.
The ultimate in privacy and seclusion, the three villas embrace large, open-air spaces and Mexico’s authenticity in design and decoration.
Ten charming Casitas of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms, arranged around a large swimming pool, offer endless views across the coconut plantation.
