A variety of upscale condos have opened recently in Playa del Carmen, giving visitors to the Riviera Maya new accommodations options without the need for a pricey full-service hotel.
Another new property, the El Taj Oceanfront Condo, is scheduled for opening the first week of January, 2010, was designed by Mexican architect Sergio Segura. The condo will feature a smooth Bali-inspired design that seduces imagination by combining soft curves, natural materials and luscious tropical landscaping with soothing water features. Many hotels in Playa del Carmen were built to please guests without considering how they merge into the environment, but this architect’s vision was to create a modern luxury dwelling that blends nature and modern design, tranquility and plentiful amenities.
The condo is only be a block away from a world-class gym, inspired and built by Vito Errico, the original founder of the famous Equinox sports clubs in the US. There will be two upscale restaurants, a scuba shop, New York-style gourmet deli and day spa.
The El Taj Oceanfront will feature marble counter tops in kitchens and bathrooms, private terraces, modern appliances, Jacuzzis, private rooftop showers and artwork imported from Bali.
To add to the magical splendor of this new jewel amongst hotels in Playa del Carmen, there are breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea, swaying palm trees and a light sea breeze. Only steps away, there is the famous pedestrian 5th Avenue with the convenience of the best restaurants, nightlife and shopping.
The luxury condos are available for vacation rentals and also for sale. Rental rates start at $265 per night per condo. The accommodations vary from one-bedroom apartments to three-bedroom penthouses.
