On the Pacific Coast of Oaxaca over looking the pristine sands of the Pacific and the ancient rock formations of Punta Cometa, Cocolia Hotel Mazunte offers guests a completely unique restorative experience.
The Mizteca People believe this sacred land is a vortex of transformative energy.
Nine private Bungalows, A Saltwater Pool, Restaurante Cacao serving locally grown organic food, and A Wellness Palapa with Yoga, Meditation and Massage, offer guests the time and the space to disconnect, unwind and live harmoniously in nature.
Surrounded by native cactus, trees and tangled vines and medicinal plants, our team of architects was inspired to contrast “symmetry ” with this wild jungle “anarchy”.
The clean lines and angles provide smooth geometric shapes in pale earth tones to reflect ever changing patterns of light and shadow. Natural art forms everywhere!
Each of the nine Bungalows has a unique location, carefully chosen for privacy, the flow of sea breezes and a special view of rolling hills with the Ocean beyond.
All are open across the sea view exposure, with sliding louvered doors of tropical wood, Caoba, Huanacaxtle, polished and oiled to enhance their rich colour and magnificent grain.
Guests have two options: a single one bedroom bungalow or a double, with two bedrooms on separate floors, each with private access. Perfect for families or friends travelling in a group. Separate but together.
Sleep like angels in King Size beds, with linens of the highest quality and airy spacious mosquito netting. There is ample storage space for personal effects, a desk and some bungalows have Wi-Fi.
Enjoy fresh towels and our locally produced soap, shampoo and body lotion made with plant based ingredients, in large elegant bathrooms of stone, poured cement and tropical wood.
The shower, open to an ocean view gives the exhilarating feeling of living freely in nature
To sit at a table in Restaurante Cacao and watch the sunset, sipping a smooth locally produced Mescal is pura vida.
Serving locally grown organic fruits, vegetables as well as the fresh catch of the day, Restaurante Cacao offers a simple menu for breakfast lunch and dinner. Each morning a variety of fresh juices, detox smoothies, home made whole grain bread, sweet rolls and fresh fruit are available. For lunch and dinner, our chef seamlessly combines traditional Mexican recipes with healing restorative ingredients to tempt every palette.
Vegetarian, vegan and non vegetarian options are always available. In addition to our fixed menu, we offer 3 daily market specials.
Try our delicious hot chocolate made with world famous, Organic Oaxacan Chocolate. It`s to die for!
Located on the land’s highest elevation, with a panorama view of Punta Cometa, the rolling hills and the ever changing Playa Mermejita, our salt water pool and terraces feature the most spectacular vistas of all.
The long Rectangular Pool is the perfect place to relax, take a swim, read, or enjoy an afternoon siesta.
The surrounding terraces, on various levels, are both public but also private places. Cooled by sea breezes with tables and lounge chairs they are shaded by the filtered light of otate and Sun umbrellas.
Full bar and restaurant service is available.
Sunsets by the pool… Una maravilla!
Take a walk down a shady path, away from the Bungalows, Pool and Restaurant, to our Wellness Palapa
Relax and enjoy a private massage (by appointment) listening to sea birds cry and the sound of ocean waves on the beach below.
The Palapa’s west facing veranda is the perfect place to find yourself at day’s end, watching the sun sink into the sea.
Cocolia Hotel Mazunte was designed to co exist in harmony with the natural environment. Every effort has been made to preserve and protect the topography of the land and the native plants and trees. Rain water is collected to prevent erosion and recycled for irrigation. Grey water is used to maintain our fruit trees, papayas, bananas, lemons, oranges and herb garden, for the restaurant. All power requirements provided by Solar Energy.
Special care has been taken to regularly prune our native trees including Cojon de Toro, Palo de Indio, among many others and to clean the understory which promotes growth, allows sea breezes to flow and keeps the land shaded and the buildings cool.
All the locations of Cocolia Hotel Mazunte are connected by carefully planned walkways, constructed with a combination of stone, wood and earth, to provide shady access to all areas including a special path that winds all the way down to Playa Mermejita.
Cocolia Hotel Mazunte over looks an ancient sacred site of the Mizteca People. Punta Cometa, the southern-most land mass in Mexico, is a long finger of rock formations, worn smooth by wind, rain and sea. They called it The Window to Heaven and at various times a year, the sun sets on one side as the full moon rises on the other. A hike to the tip of this beautiful site is an unforgettable experience.
Each year the Stone Formations of Ventanilla attract shamans, ceremonial dancers, and many national and international visitors for a traditional celebration of Winter Solstice. On the longest night of the year, the full moon arcs across the dark sky to welcome the sun rising in the exact center of a circular opening in a giant rock, surrounded by water.
Our staff would be happy to organize rafting trips on one of the many beautiful rivers nearby, or arrange a boat tour at dawn in the Lagunas of Ventanilla for extraordinary bird watching
From December to April Whales journey south to warmer waters and can frecuently be seen from one of the hotel´s many locations. Why not take a whale watching excursion to see school of dolphins, sea turtles and many varieties of sea birds as you wait for whales to appear. Nothing in the world compares to the sight of a giant whale breaching just meters away from your boat!!
The west coast of Mexico is known internationally as one of the best surfing spots in the world, and Cocolia Hotel is situated above Playa Mermejita, Mazunte – a must surf beach to those that know.
If you´re a thrill seeker, we´ll be happy to rent you a board and recommend the very best places to practice the sport. But there are beaches for all levels of expertise and even if you´re a beginner, we know you´ll enjoy your time in the ocean!
