This sprawling property, part of the Design Hotels group, opened in 2012 and recently unveiled 36 new casitas, each with a private plunge pool. There are several villas here that are great for families, each with multiple bedrooms, a pool, and a private walkway to the beach. Like most hotels in Tulum, the beach here is the star attraction—miles of gorgeous sand dotted with comfortable straw-topped cabanas for lounging in. The hotel places much of its focus on sustainability, using filtered jungle water and local materials in the rooms, operating a garden and apiary, and making efforts to use more solar energy. The restaurant is alongside the beach, with tables set into a slope for optimal water views. The food here is all made with organic produce, and breakfast is particularly good (pastries are included, and the chilaquiles with poached eggs are satisfying and delicious). And there’s more to come: the hotel’s next major expansion includes a futuristic-looking treehouse suite and a health-focused area, with a cold-pressed juice bar to be called Prana, a vegan food truck, and pop-up collaborations with like-minded companies.
