Mar de Jade’s Rooms are inspired by Mexican textiles, vibrant colors, and comfort. There are 4 different room categories you may choose from, depending on what suits your needs best. Every room has its own ensuite bathroom.

Room categories are as follows:


The Ocean Rooms are bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto a private balcony with an ocean view. Comfortable and well-appointed, each room has a sitting area with a futon that can be made into an additional bed. Rooms are on high floors and require steps to climb.


Garden Rooms are either crafted in a Mexican style, with natural rock walls and hand-painted mosaics; or with the airy Mediterranean feel with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light and fresh breeze. Located on the ground floor, they are easily accessed with either a few steps or a ramp and are appropriate for anyone with mobility issues.


Guest Rooms are decorated in bright and cheerful Mexican textiles and colors, providing a cozy and well-appointed option for those seeking simplicity and comfort. Rooms are located on both ground level and third floors, either jungle or garden facing.

Guest Loft

Guest Rooms with Loft are a simple yet spacious and economical option for 3 to 4 roommates in a dorm configuration. The bottom level has a king bed or two twins and a bathroom; the loft is accessed by a spiral staircase and has two twin beds. Some rooms feature an additional futon bed on the bottom level. Rooms are either facing the gardens or jungle. The loft is not recommended for people with mobility issues.

Whale Watching Tour

Included in this retreat will be a whale watching tour! During the months of December-early March, humpback whales congregate in the warm waters of the Mexican Pacific to have their babies. This experience is always humbling, magical, and awe-inspiring.


There is an element of the sacred included. You are authentically guided through a Temazcal ceremony, an ancient Mexican and South American cleansing ritual. This ceremony will connect you to the elements and provide a safe, meditative space for you to shed what you need to shed to move forward into what lies ahead. You will also have a special New Year’s Intention setting ceremony to get real about the shifts you would like to see for yourself in the new year.

Included excursions

Whale watching tour is included in the package.
