Live the tropical luxury resort experience at our Villa Margarita on the grounds of the fabulous Bahia Beach Resort.
Fully functional with water and electricity! No damage from the hurricane!
The beach is a short walk away, and can be reached on foot. Towels are complimentary at the Verandas pool.
The property is made up of small islands that are surrounded by lakes and connected by bridges. The lakes connect to the Espiritu Santos River, which starts at the base of the rain forest and ends at the most eastern point of the property into the ocean. This is a favorite hangout for manatees, sand dollars, and leatherback turtles.
Surrounding the property are nature paths that are great for jogging, bike riding, and bird and iguana watching. Many unusual birds have flocked to Bahia from the rain forest. The property is also part of the Audubon Society.
Many efforts were taken while constructing Bahia Beach Resort to assure an Eco Friendly property. During construction, trees that had to be removed were then planted in a different location and tagged. An on-site nursery is used to store plants and trees temporarily until they are re-located.
This Villa at Bahia Beach Resort is a great place for couples looking for a romantic getaway and for families who love to enjoy the outdoors.
