Casa Godi is a fully staffed luxury 3-bedroom villa located on the white sandy beach of the biosphere reserve of Sian Kaan (UNESCO World Heritage Site), one of the most exclusive and pristine locations in Mexico, only 20 mins away from the archeological ruins of Tulum. The property was designed by famous Italian architects De Carlo Gualla in a tropical private land of 2 acres, and boasting two water fronts: the Caribbean sea in the front and a beautiful lagoon at the back where our private guides can take you to visit ancient Mayan canals or where you can entertain yourself in this fly-fishing paradise.
Casa Godi is completely ecological and auto-sufficient, using the latest alternative energy technologies to minimize the impact on the environment, but without taking away all the modern comforts such as internet, SKY TV, iPod stations and water pressure. The house has a full-time staff of four (manager, cook, maid and gardener) to look after your every need. The menu is personalized to your requirements before you arrive and once you re here the villa manager will arrange everything from your airport transfers to SPA treatments and much more.

The Biosphere Reserve of Sian Kaan, "where the sky is born" in Mayan, was established in 1986 and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sian Kaan faces the greatest challenge of conservation:
To find a way to integrate human activities without compromising other forms of life contained within its boundaries.
The reserve is approximately 1.3 million acres in size and spans 120 kilometres from north to south - comprising almost one third of the Caribbean coast of Mexico. Sian Kaan is home to 103 known mammal species, 336 known bird species and an important nesting site of two endangered sea turtle species. It contains three large core zones where human activity is limited by permission to scientific research. Low-impact human activities and sustainable development occur in the area of the reserve known as the buffer zone. The human population is estimated at 2,000 inhabitants, the majority of which are located in the coastal regions, especially in the fishing villages of Punta Allen and Punta Herrero.
Approximately one percent of the land within the reserve is privately owned. The reserve is thought to have been inhabited in the pre-Classic and Classic periods as part of the chieftanships of Cohuah and Uaymil. There are twenty-three known archaeological sites inside the reserve. Discoveries of human remains, ceramic pieces, and other artefacts have been dated up to 2,300 years old. The northernmost section of Sian Kaan (where Casa Nalum is) contains what is thought to be an ancient trade route through lagoons and mangrove channels between the cities of Tulum and Muyil.
