Its location, history, and surroundings… At Casa Kunda’vi, absolutely everything points to be nature’s best and luxury’s finest. An authentic haven conceived to become a transformative experience where your lifestyle lives in harmony with a captivating untamed environment.
Centuries ago, when the history of humankind approached its first millennium, while China was discovering the gunpowder and the crusades started to point toward Jerusalem, in the territories of the actual Oaxaca the biggest and most important kingdom was at its highpoint: the reign of the Mixtec landlord Ocho Venado Garra de Jaguar, who with his fierce temper, combined with his magnificent skill as a strategist, unite the people of the mountain, coast, and valley under his authority.
During the pinnacle of his dominion, Ocho Venado Garra de Jaguar decided to look for a haven inside his kingdom boundaries that allow him to rejoice in all the wealth that he had accumulated.
Guided by his most loyal butlers and advisers, he went to the shore, toward a mystical site known only in legends, a place where the sky descended to the earth awaiting for the most generous and free in spirit nobles, the only worthy to find it.
One night, after exploring the unspoiled beaches of his reign, Ocho Venado Garra de Jaguar reached the shore of the Laguna de Manialtepec, at the place where an arm of water joined the sea.
There, while observing the starry night, he felt a divine whisper which made him turn the look to the Laguna, revealing to his eyes an astonishing spectacle.
In what appeared to be a cosmic dance, tiny lights twinkle through the calm waters of the Laguna. At last, the Mixtec king founded the legendary haven where the sky descended.
Ocho Venado Garra de Jaguar established there his more intimate and luxury palace, conscious of the privilege that meant to be where the moon, yoo; the sun, ndikaandii; the sea, nduta ñuu; and the rain, diavui, joined to invite the firmament toward the land, creating by this union the most valuable element in the universe: kunda’vi, the love.
Today, a thousand years after, our villa lies on the foundation where the greatest Mixtec ruler once erected the legacy of his nobility, next to the astral mirror known nowadays as the bioluminescent phenomenon in the Laguna de Manialtepec, the site that guards the most important treasure of his reign, the place where Kunda’vi inhabits.
