Visit the spa and try one of the aromatic treatments. We like the three-hour Ocean Bath Ritual: a tranquil treatment that starts with an aromatherapy foot soak followed by a Mayan clay wrap, massage, and candle-lit coconut- and bath-salt-infused bath. Don’t fret about sourcing bottled water during your stay; the hotel has an in-house filtration system.
At the hotel
Spa, mini boutique selling the owners’ range of perfumes and accessories, free WiFi in communal areas. In rooms: beach bag and Coqui Coqui Perfumes bath products.
Our favourite rooms
We fell for the romantic Master Beach Suite, perched above the lobby. It’s possibly the breeziest of the bunch, with windows at both ends of the room. The white linen-clad four-poster surveys the sea, and there’s a cosy balcony with two chairs. Room Three, a Partial Sea View Room on the second floor of the back building, is also a winner: open-plan layout, ocean vistas, and a lower price tag than rooms in the main building. Both the hand-molded bathtubs are big enough for two; keep your mouth clamped shut when showering or you’ll get a glug of seawater. A note for the modest, only curtains separate the bathroom from the rest of the room.
Forget your bulky straw tote and use the beach bag left in each room. Keen to catch some waves? Bring along your boogie board.
Smokers can light up in the outdoor areas of the hotel. Canine companions are welcome in the ground-floor rooms.
This relaxed resort is better suited to adults. However, cots and beds can be added to rooms for a charge of US$60. Babysitting can be organised with a days’ notice for US$20 an hour. Baby-listening devices and batteries are available at reception.
Repurposed and local materials were used in the construction of the Coqui Coqui Tulum. A water purifying system is in place and everything that can be recycled is. Use of natural light is maximised throughout and the hotel is powered by solar energy.
