Coqui Coqui Tulum
Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a stay at this Riviera Maya boutique hotel, and as soon as they've unpacked their scented candles and hammocks, a full account of their Mexican luxury beach break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick snapshot of Coqui Coqui Tulum…
Boho beauties including Sienna Miller and Jade Jagger – friends of the stylish owners, model Nicolas Malleville and his equally eye-pleasing partner Francesa Bonato – helped put both Coqui Coqui Tulum and its sister hotel Coqui Coqui Valladolid on the (well-heeled beachcombers’) map.
It’s easy to see why the pared-down digs on the sand, kitted out with beds swathed in mosquito nets and hand-woven hammocks, and the laid-back spirit of this oceanfront town have notched up repeat visits from paparazzi-dodgers. The hotel encourages guests to slow down, chill out and switch off (your mobile/iPad/other gadgets). It’s not lavish, but it’s got a low-key luxe and charm that makes bigger boutique numbers pale in comparison.
Spend your days snorkeling and pyramid-perusing or indulging in tension-soothing spa treatments: at Coqui Coqui Tulum the end result is relaxation paired with romance. Even the eco-friendly touches – such as the use of solar energy – are a feel-good bonus that offers a romantic pay-off. After dark, rooms are kept aglow by candlelight. Meander through Tulum by bike or go diving in search of whale sharks – this is a destination for extremists of every stripe. Sybarites emerge renewed from the third-floor spa, fresh from botanical baths perfumed with essential oils; adrenaline junkies hop into tricked-out jeeps to drive to Punta Allen.
Stop by the boutique to stock up on perfumes, scented candles and lotions whipped up on the premises. Once home, put match to wick, breathe in the coconut notes and remember Tulum: just don’t be surprised if you find yourself searching for the first flight back...
