Our favourite rooms
With each villa sleeping a different number of guests, the size of your party will probably be the deciding factor. That aside, we’ve got a soft spot for Casa Chakté – particularly its oval-shaped master bedroom, which has a steep pitched ceiling, Moroccan-style living area and a private terrace with Caribbean views.
Casa Chukum has a private pool in its back garden. If you’re in one of the other villas, take solace in the fact that the Caribbean is steps from your door.
If you’re going to explore Tulum’s cenotes, bring a pair of shoes that can get wet – your feet will thank you when it comes to scrambling over underwater rocks.
With sandy grounds and stairs to contend with, the villas aren't suitable for wheelchair users.
All ages are welcome at the hotel, and the villas – particularly Casa Chukum and Chakté – have plenty of room for families. There aren’t any specific facilities for children, but babysitting can be arranged through the concierge.
