Overall Experience

Scores are on a 20-point scale, from verified guest reviews. The quality score helps ensure that our selection stays fresh and vital.

While parts of Mexico are famously overdeveloped, the Pacific coastline of Oaxaca is not among them. This stretch of south-facing beach, spanning the villages of Mazunte and San Agustinillo, is spectacular, and the towns are in that sweet spot: lively but not crowded, off-the-radar but not impossible to reach. And while the beginnings of a luxury travel scene are present, they’re tasteful and restrained — a description that suits Zoa perfectly.

They call it a “hotel secreto,” and it’s not much of an exaggeration; it’s set on a hillside above the coast, between the two beaches, and its elevation offers not just privacy but far-ranging views. With just five thatched-roof bungalows, it keeps its footprint small, as do its ecologically sensitive practices, from its onsite vegetable garden to its biodegradable bath products.

Above all it’s a tranquil place, with morning yoga sessions, a Zen garden, an infinity pool with an endless Pacific view, and a little private beach of its own. The restaurant, as you’d expect, focuses on ocean-fresh seafood, to great effect, and the bulk of the available activities revolve around the ocean as well, from surfing lessons and snorkeling to whale-watching expeditions and trips to the sea turtle reserve.
