Our favourite rooms
We're particularly fond of the stylish Tamarind suites; those on the ground floor have private gardens complete with al fresco claw-foot bath tubs, and those on the second floor each have an ocean-view balcony. Travelling with friends or en famille? Book the three-suite Beach Villa, with its spacious living and dining room.
Who needs a pool when the Caribbean's on your doorstep?
It's more than a spa, it's the Sanarà Wellness Centre. In-house and visiting specialists have created the hotel's Cleanse & Heal programmes, all designed to leave you feeling much better when you check out than you did when you checked in; if you've always been intrigued by crystal healing, craniosacral therapy or biomagnetic treatments, now's your chance to experience them all in the wellness centre's five sumptuous treatment rooms. (And don't worry: vanity isn't completely ignored. You can always indulge with a mani-pedi or facial.)
Check in, then check out – tranquility rules here. Handily, there's yoga on tap: don't miss your chance to chill hard with a beachside class or two. Please note that Sanara charges an extra four per cent for any credit card used on the property.
Children over 12 are welcome, but not particularly catered to; under-12s are only welcome at certain times of the year, so please check before booking if you're bringing very little Smiths.
Sanarà Tulum was built using eco-sensitive methods, and sources local organic produce and free-range eggs and meat as much as possible.
