Coqui CoquiTulum, $250
Along a stretch of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera surf, the six-room Coqui Coqui resembles a whimsical sandcastle. This hotel is back-to-basics—not for those seeking lavish amounts of attention. But if it’s simplicity you’re after, the cream-and-cocoa interiors contrast beautifully with the turquoise sea. Rooms are lit by candles after dark; platform beds are draped with sheer netting. The spa is devoted to natural therapies—try a scrub made from sea salt and coconut.
