Balamku Inn on the Beach
Balamku is a new breed of resort in the Costa Maya region, one of Mexico's hidden treasures.
We are in the southern area of the Yucatan Peninsula, just south of a little fishing village, Mahahual in a natural, unspoiled environment with a community of friendly people.
At Balamku, we have created a beautiful setting that respects the natural surroundings.
We are committed to providing comfort and quality services using the resources of nature without abusing the environment.
Our respect for the environment, focus on ecotourism and intimate surroundings, will suit travellers who want a change from the large resorts.
Whether you like snorkelling and scuba diving (just off our shore and also at the world-famous Chinchorra Reef), kayaking, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, birding and hiking, investigating Mayan ruins, or just taking it easy, your time at Balamku will be relaxed and as diverse as you want.
Balamku can easily accommodate groups who would like to reserve the inn for their private use. It is perfect for retreats.
Balamku has 9 rooms available at this time. You will stay in beautifully designed thatched roof Mayan - style palapas - with a difference.
We know you'll appreciate the comforts of fine linens and towels as well as the tastefully decorated furnishings that feature Mexican art. All units have bathrooms with showers, hot water, biodegradable soap and shampoo, 24 hour electricity, beautifully tiled floors, one queen and one single bed, ceiling fans and the luxurious feeling of 10' ceilings.
