About this listing

Nestled in magical Tepoztlan, Avalon is a tranquil oasis of enchanting beauty: lush gardens, walking paths, lotus ponds, yoga hall and a stunning view of the mystical mountains. NOTICE: We are currently expanding! We are building two more cabins in our property, so you may encounter noise generated with building, ask for details with hosts.

The space

Satori house is exquisitely designed and built by expert craftsmen and artisans in the Japanese style where simplicity, beauty, quality, and comfort are seamlessly integrated. The floors and ceiling beams are of natural wood with sliding rice paper doors that separate the bedroom and bathroom from the main lounge/kitchen area. A glass walled mini-zen garden with an exterior fountain separates the bedroom from the bathroom which boasts a handmade square wooden bath and sink as well as a stone and glass shower. The kitchenette has a small fridge with gas burner to heat water for the organic tea or coffee that is provided. It is important to know the burner is small and appropriate just for heating water, not for cooking.
The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed with a magnificent view of Tepozteco through the large glass doors of the house. Screens, sun blocking blinds and a anti-mosquito UV light keeps the morning sun and mosquitoes away.

Avalon Sanctuary invites couples and singles to deepen their relationship with nature, with their own hearts and their connection with their partner. Take quiet walks along the wooded paths, enjoy your morning smoothie or coffee by the lotus ponds, cuddle in the shade of one of several hammocks nestled under an umbrella of leafy vines, get an Ayurvedic massage or Reiki Session or take a yoga class in Ananda hall. This hidden sanctuary is like being in your own private zen garden you would never guess that you are minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Tepoztlan's famed food and artisan market, or from the hiking trails and ancient wonders of Tepozteco.

Guest access

Between 8:30 and 11:00am a wholesome breakfast of smoothies, fresh local fruit, artisanal bread, homemade granola, yogurt and jam is provided at the common terrace of the main house.

Wifi is available in certain areas of the property but full range in the houses is secured.

Guest can access the entire property except for the other houses and the work shed.

Washer and dryer are available for emergencies only and require permission from the hosts.

Ananda hall can be used at any time when free and you are welcome to join the morning yoga class on Sundays ( 9:00to 10:30am) if you are here for the weekend, or cacao tantra ceremonies upon request.

Ayurvedic massage and Energetic Sessions such as Reiki or Harmonyum Healing are available at additional cost. Kalki and Cristina are also advanced trantric practitioners and guides in the path of Conscious Living and loving so if you're seeking reconnection with your partner or healing in that regard let us know in advance, as your stay could be easily transformed into a healing or expanding experience.

Interaction with guests

Santuario Avalon is not only a retreat center or B&B but also the home of your hosts. Cristina and Kalki are available to help and guide you in any way to help make your stay in Tepoztlán as joyful and fulfilling as possible.

Other things to note

As the houses are in harmony with the surrounding natural environment bees, butterflies, humming birds, and the lizards are permanent residents. Ants, spiders, or scorpions, which can sting but are not lethal are around and relocated when found. As anywhere in Mexico these creatures require your vigilance, so look in your shoes or in the bottom of drawers or bags before putting your feet or hands.

Celebrations of music and fireworks in and around town are to be expected on occasion.

Beautiful and serene space. Cris and Kalki are very friendly and made our stay very pleasant. We would stay there again for sure. They give great suggestions on what to visit (organic market, pyramid, etc.). Thank you for everything!

What an enchanting place! Santuario Avalon is the perfect oasis from the big city. The house is beautifully decorated in Japanese/zen style and the grounds are a wonder to behold. As other can commented, one can pass all day on the porch or at one of the many seating areas amidst hummingbirds, flowers, and palm trees. Cristina and Kalki are most kind and welcoming, and Kalki even dropped us off at the bus terminal in Cuernavaca on departure day. Quick 10 min walk to the center of Tepoz too, if you dare leave. p.s. Bathtub is especially lovely for a long soak after a climb up to the pyramid.

Our time at Avalon sanctuary was just wonderful. The place is even more stunning than the pictures and makes you feel immediate relaxation. We particularly loved the dramatic mountain views and the fabulous bath, and the bed will give you the best night's sleep after a busy day hiking and enjoying Tepoztlán, what a magical town! Cristina and Kalki are warm, helpful and accommodating hosts, who are a pleasure to chat to and serve a most delicious and nutritious breakfast. Nice and quiet location too (10 min walk to town), ticked all the boxes.

Avalon is a great place in all matters. We were welcomed with so much attention by the hosts Cristina and Kalki. Satori Cabin is even more cozy and beautiful than we could tell by the pictures. The communication prior to the stay was impecable and the hosts were attentive and quick in answering all our doubts. The cabin itself and the view are indescribable. We were received with a house full of flowers, lot's of great teas, fruits, wine and all facilities you can imagine for a great stay. Wifi works great and you can even do streaming in there. We really recommend the place for couples who look for a cozy and quiet retreat.
