So... What is a Palapa?
A Palapa (a Spanish word of Tagalog origin, meaning "petiol of the palm leaf") is an open-sided dwelling with a thatched roof made of dried palm leaves. It is very useful in hot weather and, therefore, very common on Mexican beaches and deserts. It is one of the most important architectural contributions of West Mexican culture.
Luxury Palapas has been building these types of structures in all Houston & Gulf Coast cities including Central TX along the I45 corridor for over 10 years. Check out pics on our Facebook page.
We are proud of our continuing 5 Star ratings which translate into delivering on your project vision, staying within your budget, keeping a clean work site, taking the extra step, being on time and providing great customer service after your project is completed.

How Much Will My Palapa/Tiki Hut Cost?
We get this question a lot. The best answer is it all depends on size and the materials you choose. We know that is a super simple answer, but read on.
It also depends on location and difficulty, but the least expensive material is our standard red cedar posts which are proven to have a long life and are insect resistant. This is very important, being that we are in a coastal community. Our standard Mexican palm thatch which we import directly from Mexico, has a 10 year warranty.
From there, you could upgrade to different styles and materials like African reed thatch or other exotic materials which add cost, but don't necessarily improve life expectancy.
At Luxury Palapas, we offer options like outdoor kitchens, custom bars, outdoor furniture, electrical wiring for lights, ceiling fans & TV's.
As you can see... its just about impossible to say your tiki bar will cost this much, without actually speaking with you. We've built thousands of palapas & tiki huts throughout Texas... so if it's experience you want, we have it. After that, most customers want to know that their construction will last, and that's why we offer a 10 year warranty on all standard materials.
The very best thing you can do is just call us... 832-310-462 or click to our question form to contact us about your project. We respond quickly.

Palapas made from African Reed thatch are made from cape reed. It’s known for the uniform look it creates. Unlike Mexican thatch that is flexible, reed is extremely sturdy, that lays flat. It is perfect for use in Palapas as it’s distinctive rows look neat & clean for a nice custom profile.
