Hotel La Semilla, Riviera Maya

Inspired by the Rough Luxe movement, La Semilla is an adult-only B&B making it the perfect spot for a romantic escape bang in the heart of the trendiest part of town, Calle 38. With handpicked pieces straight from the finest flea markets of Mexico and with only nine rooms- it’s the perfect secluded tropical haven to begin and end every traveler’s day.


Playa del Carmen is just a short drive from the international airport of Cancun, set on Mexico’s sandy eastern shores. La Semilla is the perfect mix between the hip Calle 38 (its neighbor is the famous La Cueva del Chango restaurant) and the surrounding jungle- so get out exploring and adventure around a Mayan ruin.

Your Room

With only nine rooms to choose from, each has its own quirky style with organic forms and simple design that reflects a sense of Mexican history and heritage. From the white linen sheets and inviting beds, La Semilla is a tropical home away from home with all the mod cons. Kick back on your private balcony and whittle away the evening as the breeze sways the green tropical palms.

Why we Like It?

La Semilla is Playa Del Carmen’s hidden gem of tranquillity amongst the tropical heat, a firm Black Tomato favorite is the ‘Cocina Loft’, they serve a healthy and happy breakfast experience, think freshly squeezed juices and delicious pastries which makes you feel as if you were eating in a friend’s house. After satisfying those taste buds head up to the rooftop terrace to catch some rays- take a deep breath and look around at the panoramic views of the jungle and Caribbean (yes we know it’s hard to believe but you really are in paradise).
