Azulik became popular on Instagram back in 2016/2017 and since then it has become to ‘place to be’ while visiting Tulum.
This adults-only beach resort features a secluded, guest-only, clothing-optional beach at the south end of the property perfect for couples who want to escape to pure Caribbean heaven.
The rooms, which are wooden tree houses for ADULTS! Are made from Mexican-royal-ebony Khatalosh and feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering plenty of natural daylight, mosquito nets, and custom made in-door baths.
All have a private deck with outdoor day beds, seating areas and views of the lush jungle and the Caribbean Sea.
The best part of Azulik? None of the rooms come with TV, phone or electricity (yes, that means no WiFi) so you can really relax and reconnect with nature.
I stayed at Ahau back in 2016 and I absolute LOVED it! Not only is it a beautiful hotel but on it’s grounds is the ever so popular Raw Love Tulum, a smoothie & vegan haven!
It’s located on the beach of Tulum. In front of you is endless white sand and turqouize waters and behind is the Mexican Jungle. Tulum is about living an ecological and sustainable lifestyle and here at Ahau they really create a space that reflects that.
There are yoga retreats, eco-workshops and sweat lodges, shamanic and drumming circles, and a multitude of musicians. And that is what makes Tulum so special, this international community of people who appreciate design, music, dance, natural foods and who holds a deep regard for nature and individuality.
¨Nomade Tulum is a human centered hotel, conceived as a temporary habitat for those ready to learn and share, ready to awake the soul, and free the mind.
It is a space in a sacred land where the mind, body and soul will be delighted and fulfilled by mother nature.¨
Located on the main beach of Tulum and only steps away from the sea, Nomade is a place to awaken the soul and to free the mind.
Feeling adventurous but also a little sassy? Then look no further than Nativus Glamping!
The perfect way to connent with the beautiful nature that Tulum has to offer.
This doesn´t cut you off from the world completley though,
as they also offer Wi-Fi and an onsite bar!
¨Cocooned by the jungle on a pristine stretch of the Caribbean coast lies a communal playground for the creative community.¨
This is where all the ¨Cool Kids¨ hang out on instagram, a place to bring together the creative and spiritual minds, but to be honest, Papaya Playa is much more than just the perfect instagram shot.
I spent a lot of time here and absolutely loved the vibe. Their vision was to create a place that respected the pristine nature that Tulum has in a sustainable manner.
They also host the most amazing Full Moon parties every month. If you are in Tulum during one of their parties, make sure you are there!
This is more for your budget travellers but Mamas home is one the best hostels in Tulum and I can vouch for it too, as I stayed there for over 2 months!
Mamas Home is Located in Tulum town rather than the beach strip but being on a budget, I actually preferred this as there are so many more options for food and drink for much less of the price of those on the beach strip.
There is also a colectivo stop just a block away that goes straight to the beach or alternatively, you can just hire a bike and cycle there!
They also have some really nice private rooms and a strict “no noise” policy after 11pm so you won´t need worry about being kept up all night by rowdy travellers!
