Her name means beautiful and when I look back at the web of the last few years, Belha stands out in my mind as one of the most beautiful days of all. It was a path-changing day that set the tone for all that was to come. It was the beginning of an everlasting friendship and work partnership with Barb Simkova, whom I cherish more than words. It was also the very first time I worked with our David, who became an invaluable member of The Eventeur, a big part of our success in Mexico, and my friend. As we launch the new site and new blog, there was no doubt in my mind that the first post had to be of beautiful Belha.
This glowing white villa designed in Costa Careyes style sits in front of a private white sand beach the local fisherman call home. In every sense of the word, Belha is a retreat. It is private, secluded and luxurious. It is situated right next to hotel Esencia and currently managed by the hotel which gives you access to all the hotel’s amenities while enjoying your own 9000 sqft private estate and private pool.
For events, I have yet to find a home as secluded yet photogenic as Belha. The estate can accommodate up to 300 guests beach-side, where the Yucatan jungle dissolves into the pristine sands of Xpu-ha.
