The brainchild of Argentinean siblings Sebastian and Hernan Sas from Sas Arquitectos, Be Tulum is a boutique hotel that represents their architectural prowess and also their commitment to the locale. The hotel's design is a nod to the beauty of the Mayan Riviera.
Be Tulum comprises five structures that harness indigenous elements such as local limestone, sturdy Brazilian hardwood, and traditional palapa roofs crafted from palm leaves. As you wander between these structures, you're led by lantern-lit pathways and treated to the aromatic embrace of copal smoke, a sacred Mayan tree resin.
The 64 suites are each uniquely positioned between the dense jungle and the vast sea. Ground-floor suites tempt guests with private pools and terraces, while upper ones up the ante with jacuzzis, balconies, and penthouses with expansive views.
Be Tulum offers two on-site restaurants: the beachfront restaurant and bar, Maresias and also Ocumare Restaurant, a fine-dining tribute to Mexico's rich culinary heritage. Throw in the tranquil Yäan Wellness Spa and a pair of infinity pools, and Be Tulum genuinely becomes an unmissable tropical getaway for those seeking a blend of luxury and nature.
