Tulum is a town on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, it’s known for it’s beaches and ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. Tulum is an oasis where you can find amazing beaches, delicious foods and perfect sunrises. The town is known as a heaven of yoga lovers and the perfect retreat for those who want to enjoy a sweet escape from a busy life.
Along with the stunning natural environment, Tulum also has some of the most exotic designs when it comes to the hospitality industry. Here you can find cafes built with sustainability in mind and hotels that feature truly amazing and memorable designs and architecture.
One of the hotels that sport such a fantastic design is Papaya Playa Project Hotel, which was recently renovated by a team of creative designers. The concept of this hotel is based on the concept of Tulum being the place where you can reconnect with yourself and kindle your spiritual side.
The hotel consists of several types of houses, each one with its own style. There are the Rustic Casitas, which are the original huts that were restored, the New Casitas which feature large terraces and roof decks, along with rooftop pools perfect for a relaxed stay. If you want something posher, you can choose between Casa Madera and Casa Palapa, which provide all the luxury one might want from a tropical hotel.
The exterior design is constructed of ecological materials, ranging from bamboo window coverings to palapa roofing and wood-plaster walls. All the materials are 100% natural and sustainable. As it happens with most constructions built from ecological materials, these buildingsy are incredibly durable and deliver a charming rustic feeling, being the perfect mix between simplicity and luxury.
The original huts are made from twigs, the new casitas are made from a mixture of concrete and chukun tree resin, which makes them both a pleasure to look at and to live in.
Inside, the casitas have the same simple, somewhat frugal style. Decorated in natural, earth colors, the interiors welcome guests, promoting meditation and relaxation. The sheets are made from the best fabrics to provide that luxurious feel, while the mosquito nets protect the guests from nasty bites. From the sheets to the toiletries made from local honey, all the materials used in the hotel are raw, to invite the guest to return to the natural, simple way of life. The main attraction of the cabanas are the hammocks laid on the private porches, where you can spend your holiday swinging into the Tulum laid-back lifestyle.
Papaya Playa Project Hotels is the perfect place to live your own castaway-like experience. The casitas with a stunning view to the ocean and rooftop pools offer a great stay for honeymooners. The simple style of the original cabins is everything you need when you are looking to get away from your regular, city life and unwind in pure nature. The entire resort has a tropical, raw design which is enhanced by its location. Despite or, perhaps, due to its natural design, the resort is the perfect mix between an unpretentious hut camp and a luxurious retreat.
The Papaya Playa Project is certainly a resort worth visiting and makes for a wonderful contribution to any travellers treasured memoirs.
