TATA Tulum is above all a very romantic beach resort for couples. The 21 rooms front the ocean or a lush garden that flows naturally toward a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach. Relaxation begins at check-in when the friendly staff greets you with a refreshing cool towel and a “Dragon,” a spicy mezcal-based cocktail, as your bags magically find their way to your room. The rooms have an earthy modern quality, with polished concrete, cut stonework, wicker, exotic woods, jute curtains, and subdued lighting. Unusually for Tulum, the rooms have 24-hour air-conditioning. Even though the place has a very open feel, behind the scenes TATA has a watchful eye on security. In the mornings it’s a pleasant few steps to a generous complimentary breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant, which sits directly on the beach. (See the listing for Luna in our Tulum restaurant guide.) The combined effect is just the right mix of subtle luxury and the low-key, natural feel Tulum is known for.
