Our favourite rooms
The boho spirit is strong here: Nomade Tulum has perfected a textured, artisan-led, casually-thrown-together look that’s pure Instagram fodder. Oceanfront Suites are right on the beach, with a shaded patio and hammock to make the most of the views. We love the Arena Suite’s Morocco-meets-Mexico aesthetic, a glorious jumble of driftwood-framed mirrors, hand-woven lamps and exotic rugs. Want to rough it out in king-sized, air-conditioned luxury? Book a Deluxe Tent to live out your Out of Africa fantasies right on the sands.
Inspired by the elements and Mexico’s pre-Hispanic cultures, the Yäan Energy Spa is as much about inner health as outer beauty. Treatments here start with a water circuit of saunas, steam rooms, hammam sessions and massage pools. The spa’s organic rooftop garden grows flowers and herbs for soothing baths, scrubs and holistic Mayan therapies harnessing heat, smoke, oils and sacred infusions. Plan a visit during a new or full moon to take part in the spa’s Temazcal Ceremony, a healing and cleansing experience in a sweat lodge, proceeds of which support art and conservation programmes in Mayan communities.
Don’t be fooled by the earthy Moroccan stylings: the tribe here is more digital nomad than ascetic detoxer, so you can leave your plug adaptors at home – the hotel will provide them.
The soft sands in front of Nomade are public, but the hotel has its own sized-for-two day-beds and gently swaying hammocks from which guests can languidly gaze out to sea.
Welcome, though not particularly catered to; the hotel’s hedonistic bohemian vibe is best left to the grown-ups.
