Be Tulum, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
Luxury, peaceful barefoot chic boutique beach resort
Rooms from around £400 per night. Flights and transfers available at an additional cost.
The creation of Be Tulum marks a coming of age for the traditionally hippy hangout of Tulum, south of the more well-known and developed resorts along Mexico's Riviera Maya. With no TVs to disturb the sound of the waves and the breeze, this peaceful hideaway is all about relaxation. Seamlessly blending luxury and nature, this ultra-stylish retreat stands on a gorgeous stretch of the Mexican Caribbean coast with its white-sand beaches,
Mayan ruins and nature reserves.
The 12 Jungle Suites are enveloped by white sand, gardens and palm-trees, and come with a private plunge pool on the ground floor or a Jacuzzi on the second floor. The 6 Arena Suites are jut a few steps from the beach, and have superb views, a private pool or a Jacuzzi. There are also two Ocean Suites with a balcony, Jacuzzi and private terrace with pool, perfect for amazing sunset views over the lagoon. The chic Argentinean designed interiors hint at gaucho charm, with leather chairs, hide rugs and exposed stone walls.
Activities & Experiences
Once you've had enough time lying on the beach soaking up the sunshine, visit the cliff top Mayan site of Tulum, or head into Sian Ka'an Biosphere reserve to go looking for manatees and dolphins. Other Mayan sites such as Coba are also accessible from Be Tulum. Fishing, snorkelling and diving can also all be arranged. There are lots of shops and restaurants within close proximity.
Facilities & Services
Be Tulum has a beach club open daily from 08.00 to 22.00 with a pool, bar and restaurant, as well as beach beds for guests. There's also a lounge bar, restaurant (serving exquisite contemporary Mexican cuisine in the beach dug out, or under the shade of a palm tree) and in-room spa treatments. The spa itself is just over the road.
Weather & Seasons
The best time to visit is during the drier, slightly milder months from November to April. The ‘rainy’ season begins in the south around June and runs until November (and this is also the hurricane season). Although it can be hotter and more humid at this time of year, usually it only rains for a couple of hours before the weather clears. The wettest months tend to be September and October.
11 hour direct flight to Cancun, followed by a 90 minute transfer to Be Tulum.
