Created to offer the ultimate in luxury, the striking design of Zadún celebrates both the desert and the sea with 115 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites, many of which offer an individual pool and terrace, within 42 two-story villas placed gently along the natural slopes of the land.
All guests will enjoy the genuine care of a tosoani, or private attendant.
Among Zadún's 15 stunning room categories is the property's signature villa, the Grand Reserve Villa, which offers 5,930 square feet of living space, two large bedrooms, five lounges, a pool, one Jacuzzi, a private kitchen, a gym, a living room, two full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.
The guest rooms offer a modern expression of Mexican design that showcases the talent of handcrafters from culture-rich areas throughout Mexico, such as Oaxaca, Yucatán, Campeche, Mexico City, Jalisco, and Puebla.
The rooms, conceived by uribekrayer, feature a careful curation and combination of materials, enhancing the natural veins of solid wood and stone throughout.
For the furnishings, also imagined by uribekrayer, communities of weavers in Oaxaca were engaged to design and produce handwoven textiles for the pillows, while a unique framed textile serves as one of the primary works of art in every room.
On the guest room terraces, a sculptural art piece made by artists Monica Bizzarri and Raquel Charabatti, lights up to emit a soft glow at night.
The resulting design is a sense of place that is singular and unique to Zadún.
As a true oasis of relaxation and wellbeing, Zadún presents the region's most innovative wellness experience: the one-of-a-kind, 29,535-square-foot Spa Alkemia, complete with a variety of customized, locally inspired treatments for solo spa guests, couples and small groups.
Designed by the renowned TLee Spas Spa Alkemia's name is a modern adaptation of the Spanish word alquimia, or alchemy, underscoring a focus on positive transformation. ■
