HB Exclusive: Life House expands into Oaxaca, Mexico

Life House has expanded its footprint to Oaxaca, Mexico, with the management of Casa Yuma, a beachfront boutique hotel and restaurant set to open in March in Puerto Escondido.

The hotel will feature 25 rooms, a pool, a coworking space overlooking the ocean and a restaurant and bar. The hotel is designed to offer an exclusive and intimate experience, catering to guests seeking both relaxation and adventure in Puerto Escondido, according to the company.

The ownership group behind Casa Yuma is led by Tim De Belloy, a developer from France known for his luxury home projects in The Heights, Houston. Embarking on his first hotel development, he was drawn to Puerto Escondido’s untapped potential and the opportunity to create something unique in the hospitality landscape.

“If you want it, or not, in Casa Yuma you will meet people that alone will create an experience for your trip,” said de Belloy. “We tailored this project around connecting guests with other guests, in a unique location. As a first-time hotel owner, it’s reassuring to know that my hotel is in expert hands. Life House’s all-encompassing services cover aspects from operational management to advanced revenue strategies, allowing me to focus on the broader vision for my property. They’re helping make hotel ownership both rewarding and manageable.”
