February 9 - 15, 2025

If you're craving in-person creative connection, a warm getaway, and the space and time to rest into your best writing, this retreat is for you. A week away from the noise to give your words the space they deserve.

The Place

Our private, gated villa is situated on the coast of the Riviera Maya, in a beach town called Paamul.

The villa faces the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Ocean and cohabitates with an abundance of coconut palm trees, flowers, hermit crabs, iguanas, pelicans, and other jungle and tropical beings. The villa is situated beside an isolated and ungroomed coastline beach that is a sanctuary for beautiful marine species, a five-minute bike ride through the jungle.

It is also situated beside another public beach with white sand that is a three-minute walk away. There are kayaks, paddle boards, beach bikes, and hammocks to use in your free time. Our beautiful suites are all steps away from the beach pool, the common space, and our rooftop studio space.
