Looking for a coastal home in Mexico? Meet La Amada Residences, a luxury residential community located in Playa Mujeres, a secluded seaside resort area on the northeast coast of Yucatán peninsula. Bordered to the east by the Caribbean and the west by natural areas, Playa Mujeres is 15 minutes north of Cancún. The La Amada community is the only residential offering in Playa Mujeres. The property includes 215 luxury mid-rise condominiums featuring contemporary Mexican design, with views ranging from the sea to a luxe marina to the lush wildlife wetlands of the Chacmochuc Lagoon nature reserve.

This June, La Amada is unveiling a new multi-million dollar beach club with infinity pools, a swim-up bar, tennis and paddle ball courts, a gourmet food shop and restaurant, and a world-class gym. Along with access to the beaches and boardwalks of the broader community, residents enjoy the Greg Norman-designed golf course of Playa Mujeres Golf Club; touring and zip-lining in the wetlands and rainforest jungle; fishing, snorkeling, and watersports; and spas and golf at nearby hotels and resorts. At $320,000, a one-bedroom La Amada condominium was named “steal of the week” in the March 16, 2018 issue of The Week magazine.

La Amada Residences

The La Amada Residences struggled for sales when the initial project was completed in 2010 at the height of a real estate recession. The property was purchased by a private equity firm in 2015. With the commencement of major renovations, it has rebounded. Of 215 units, 130 remain for sale. One-, two-, and three-bedroom options range from 1,323 to to 2,917 square feet and are priced from the mid-$300Ks to $1.3 million. Fully furnished options are available. Residents who wish to have the option to join the property-managed rental pool specifying the rental rate and condition, or may even rent their unit out themselves through Airbnb/VRBO arrangements. Here’s a look at the living area of a model unit done in a warm color scheme:

And, an actual residence for sale: the third-floor, two-bedroom residence below features 1,850 square feet of interior space, an open floor plan, gourmet kitchens with Miele and Bosch appliances, high-end bath design, and a 710-square-foot outdoor terrace which overlooks the deep-water marina. It’s listed at $538,000.

The New Beach Club

Expansion and renovations to La Amada’s original beach club will be unveiled this June. The 25,000 plus-square foot facility will accommodate 372 guests with rooftop pools; a 1,130-square-foot lounge; a marketplace café which will sell basic grocery items, prepared foods and dining service; an 1,829-square-foot gym; and a kid’s activity center and playground. Amenities in the gated community also include an onsite concierge and 24-hour security.
