A natural jewel nestles between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range that snakes through the Mexican state of Oaxaca. A top-ten surfing and popular fishing destination, the tiny coastal town of Puerto Escondido invites with its laid-back atmosphere and beachside vibe. Hoteliers Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha, the duo behind Grupo Habita, have transformed a pristine stretch of Oaxacan coastline into a private paradise for beach bums and thrill seekers alike.
Hotel Escondido offers a modern take on the traditional Oaxacan beach hut, cultivating a sophisticated atmosphere with a cheerful, centrally located bar and an underground dance club that quite literally lives up to its name. Each of the 16 bungalows emphasizes a commitment to local tradition and design with traditional palapa rooftops on each hut and tropical wooden floorboards. Minimal, yet comfortable design elements are amplified by the myriad opportunities that the resort offers guests for both group activities and private relaxation in their natural hideaway. Surfing, boating, and kayaking lessons occur steps from the door of your bungalow, while those wishing to explore the surrounding area can explore the nearby lagoon. Those wishing to recharge after an action-packed day of sun, surf, and nature can recline by their own private pool, unwind with an in-room massage and enjoy locally-sourced dishes inspired by the internationally renowned Oaxacan cuisine.
Individual palapa bungalows with private plunge pools exude an authentic, laid-back, local lifestyle in this Oaxacan village by the sea.
