Weave a spell

Setting

La Veleta locale

A literal haven in La Veleta, Muaré Tulum has stayed true to the Riviera Maya town’s bohemian roots, with a neutrals-only palette, tropical foliage, oversize thatching, and weaving, lots of weaving. There’s a curving pool with a jungle backdrop, plus a plunge pool in every suite that’s temperature-controlled to your preference. Nearby, there are of course beaches to sunbathe on, cenotes to swim in and Mayan ruins to explore, but hurry back for self-improvement at the healing center, a dip in your choice of pool and Mexico-via-the-Med meals at the open-air restaurant.

Mexico

Muaré Tulum is the La Veleta part of town, within easy reach of ruins, cenotes and beaches (i.e. everything you’re coming to Tulum for).

Planes

The international airport in Tulum is a 40-minute drive from the property. Hotel-arranged transfers are available on request for an additional charge.

Automobiles

If you’re on a Riviera road trip, there’s free parking at the hotel. Depending on the weather, the road leading to the hotel may become muddy; we recommend hiring a car or calling a cab if you plan to explore beyond the hotel.

Worth getting out of bed for

There are daily happenings at Muaré Tulum, including a wholesome way to start your day (yoga class in the open-air shala at 9.30am) and sound-healing. The La Veleta locale means a perfect position for heading to the bright white beaches, mighty Mayan ruins and cenotes for subterranean swims. Also nearby is the Sian Ka'an reserve, one of the most diverse places on the planet. And you can continue on your wellbeing journey at the Mystika Museum, where you’ll be fully immersed in all kinds of wondrous woo-woo.

Local restaurants

Anyone with an undying love for the humble burrito will enjoy a trip to Burrito Amor, where they can order as many rice-stuffed rolls of corn as they like. Fillings get a little more creative than plain old carnitas – vegan options include cactus and Mayan spinach. Norita is where to head for tapas such as yellowfin tartare with wasabi emulsion, burrata with figs and toffee (technically honey-butter ponzu) tuna. At Sanará Kitchen, either on the beach or in Tulum town, the food is pure, delicious and quite often plant-based.

Local bars

You’re never far from free-flowing mezcal margaritas in Tulum and Nana Rooftop in the centre of town is an excellent place to start.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this jungle-shrouded hotel in Mexico and unpacked their swimwear and sticks of incense, a full account of their beachy break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Muaré Tulum…

Tulum hotels may have a strict bohemian moodboard to follow (hey, if it ain’t broke…) and Muaré has followed instructions to the letter: breezy, billowy fabrics, hanging, woven things, thatched roofs, a lush jungly backdrop and not a primary colour in sight. It also has a hearty embrace of spirituality and shamanism, with rooms named after moons and stars. Each suite has a heated plunge pool in its own garden, as well as an exclusively neutral palette. The hotel is arranged around a snaking pool that could basically be a lagoon. 

The boutique retreat is in the La Veleta part of town, close to everything a tourist could possibly want from a trip to Tulum (beaches, Mayan ruins, cenotes and laidback but brilliant restaurants and bars). Also theme parks, but let’s not talk about those. There’s yoga every morning in the open-air (and thatched, obviously) shala, a spa that would prefer to be known as a healing center and a restaurant overlooking the pool. We feel better just thinking about it.
