Zahra is a small, intimate hotel with a series of closely grouped cabanas and rooms spanning a variety of needs and budgets. Rooms are comfortable but fairly minimalistic, choosing to do without air conditioning and electrical outlets in favor of being environmentally conscience and remaining more in touch with the surroundings. Compared to its two sister hotels, Copal and Azulik, Zahra tends to have more social and family atmosphere because of the proximity and openness of the facilities and accommodations.

Vacationers looking to eat on-site will be particularly pleased with Zahra, as they have some pleasant on-site dining possibilities. Zahra is one possible option, which is a nice choice for visitors with a hankering for Mexican food. Next, pay a visit to the cottages' on-location bar.
