Time stops as nature defines each space- sun, sand, sea, fresh air, palms and shade.

Nestled among protective palms, the dominant architectural element is nature herself. Playa Koralia blends magically with its environs. The softly curved walls rise up and slip back into the landscape, harmonizing with the natural forms and encouraging exploration of the impressive surroundings. From the traditional woven palms that create the roofs, to the local woods in combination with antiques that have been crafted into place, river stones, caña and bamboo, Playa Koralia is infused with Nature. Particular attention has been given to the interior design, including the murals and the mosaics that decorate each individual habitation individually. The result is a masterful combination of traditional rustic elements, open space and whimsical artwork.


Inspired by local and world cuisine; Koralia offers innovative dishes that make use of the extensive assortment of local seafood as well as exotic, organic fruits & vegetables, many of which come from our own organic gardens. Playa Koralia does not serve pork or red meats, but does offer exceptional menus for vegetarians.
