La Gema Escondida


Behind a black gate lies a true gem —  La Gema Escondida is the only villa of this caliber in Puerto Escondido.

With the most amazing views in all of greater Puerto Escondido overlooking Playa Manzanillo, Puerto Angelito and the Pacific Ocean. The villa has been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated by its new owners and has everything you would wish for in a luxury modern Mexican experience. La Gema Escondida is a 7 minute drive away from Puerto Escondido Airport within the private residential community of Manzanillo Reef (directly above Playa Manzanilla). La Gema Escondida offers guests full breakfast and choice of either lunch or dinner, prepared by a phenomenal private chef. The recipes used by the chef are handed down from generation to generation. Guest privacy is of utmost importance to us. The in-house staff have their own equipped private staff quarters to give guests as much privacy as they desire. Each guest room offers a private safe and door locks for security.
