Villa Playa Tayrona, Los Naranjos

Villa Playa Tayrona, the chicest and most modern launching point for visiting the famous Tayrona National Park, is one of our best-kept secrets. Sequestered in a secluded bay with private beach access, this beautiful six-bedroom villa hotel on the Caribbean Sea is the ideal place to disconnect after exploring Colombia’s vibrant cities or trekking its abundant rainforests.


While just 20 minutes from the northern city of Santa Marta, Villa Playa Tayrona will feel worlds away. The beach of Los Naranjos is just as pristine but much less popular than its big sister beach, El Cabo San Juan. Just isolated enough, this villa is the ideal spot for exploring the incredible Tayrona National Park — located just 5 minutes from the entrance.

Your Room

Consisting of just six suites, this villa puts an emphasis on peace and privacy. Each suite is draped in white, beachy linen, local Colombian artwork, and simple wood furnishings. More so, every suite has an unforgettable view of Sierra Nevada de Santa, the world’s largest and most impressive coastal mountain range. We recommend a nightly dip in the private pool before falling asleep to the sound of the waves.

Why we like it

Hammock littered and fringed with hundreds of coconut trees, we believe the beaches in Colombia are some of the most unspoiled in the world. Villa Playa Tayrona is a hidden gem amongst these sapphire waters that should not be missed — one perfect for a family, couple, or group of friends. From a dip in the gorgeous pool to hikes into wonderful remote beaches and view-laden mountains, there is no shortage of things to do at this sun-drenched paradise.
