Tailor-Made Holiday

Mexico - Luxury Bel-Ha Villa Holiday

9 days

from $9,195pp (excluding flights)

This journey idea to Mexico’s Riviera Maya provides a luxury private villa holiday with exclusive excursions.

  • Fly business class with British Airways
  • Private helicopter tour to Chichén Itzá
  • Morning private yacht charter
  • Private Chef 
  • 7 night exclusive rental of Villa Bel-Ha

Villa Bel Ha is a delightful 4 bedroom property on the powder white sands of the Riviera Maya and is an ideal villa for a small family holiday or to rent with a group of friends.   

Situated right on the beach, this stylish villa provides an exclusive and very private beach holiday. We have included a private chef who will be on hand throughout the holiday to discuss and prepare menus, shop and cook.  Every meal can be an occasion whether it’s a barbeque lunch by the pool, or a supper served on the terrace under the stars.

Days at the villa can be spent relaxing by the pool, swimming from the beach – just a stone’s throw from the villa, or in the private cenote on the property. Take advantage of the many water sports available through neighbouring Hotel Esencia, such as kayaking, paddle boarding and windsurfing or alternatively retreat to their beautiful spa. Also, there are some worthwhile excursions and so we have included a couple of  ‘must do trips’.

Venture a little further inland and see Chichén Itzá archaeological site by private helicopter.  Another highlight of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is to spend time on the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea, so included is a morning's private yacht charter to swim, snorkel and cruise this beautiful coast.

There are many more services available that Steppes can book, so do let us know how we can further tailor your villa holiday to Mexico.

The guide price for this holiday to Mexico is based on four adults.

This morning take an exclusive helicopter tour to Chichén Itzá.

This is a great opportunity to view the unique topography of the Yucatan Peninsula and the many cenotes (natural wells) that pepper the landscape. Upon arrival to Kahua a chauffeured car will meet you and take you with your guide to archeological site of Chichén Itzá to visit the areas of most interest, before returning by helicopter to Playa del Carmen.

The Riviera Maya stretches from south of Cancun to Punta Allen, the Caribbean Sea is a turquoise colour and the white sandy beaches are a beautiful place to relax, tan and rejuvenate.

The barrier reef off the coast, which stretches from the north-east tip of the Yucatan all the way down to the border with Belize is teeming with marine life and offers a profusion of excellent diving and snorkelling sites ranked amongst the world's best.

Activities along the coast are numerous and include a variety of water sports, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, swimming with dolphins and deep-sea fishing. For the adventurous you can go on jungle tours, quad bike, horse ride or mountain bike.

Places to visit in the area include the fascinating ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum, the islands of Cozumel and Isla Mujeres or the eco resorts of Xel - Ha and Xcaret with great water sports. Take the opportunity to swim in underground cenotes/caves and observe the interesting wildlife and animals.

Sue Grimwood, Travel Expert

"It was tremendously helpful to be able to speak to someone who had been to Antarctica before - Sue had been on the ship we had booked, so was able to give us some very useful information. We felt that at every stage of the booking process that we were in safe hands. "

""I was uncharacteristically worried about this trip - neurotic some might say - and I was given 110% support and help with everything. I had been disappointed by not being able to get a space on the 2014 trip and so Sue was stuck with me for 2 years - a testament to her patience and professionalism. I was confident in Sue - she knows Antarctica and speaks from experience, that is worth a huge amount. Emails, which I would send were responded to almost immediately.""
