Hotel Of The Day: Azulik Tulum, Mexico

An eco-villa resort right by the turquoise waters of Tulum beach, Azulik Tulum has incredible sunset views of the beach and jungle from its treetop restaurant, Koh.

It’s basically a beautiful treehouse for adults, with 48 hand-crafted luxury Tree House suites. The entire resort is adults only, so you’ll leave here completely relaxed. It’s possibly one of the most Instagrammable hotels in the world – chances are you’ve seen it on your feed before.

Where exactly is Azulik Tulum?

This enchanting resort is is located by the sea in Tulum, Mexico just 3 km south of the Tulum Archaeological Zone and 4 km from the centre of Tulum town. You can stroll down to the private beach (that’s “clothes optional”, FYI) in mere minutes.

What’s so special about this hotel?

Azulik is a one-of-a-kind “off-the grid” nature hotel with no electricity, no TV, no phones – and no, there’s no WiFi in the bedrooms. You can hook up to the internet in the main hotel, and the room service is via a cute paper message system.

There’s also a scenic seafront spa where you can get traditional Mayan healing therapies and medicinal herbal baths. Want to really experience some Mayan wellness? You’ll find Tulum’s first Temezcal (Mayan Sweat Lodge) here..

Rooms are lit by candles for a extra romantic vibe

One of the hotel’s ‘tribe’ members comes by before sunset to light up your candles every night. The hotel’s villas are built from natural materials, and are dreamy. Villas have Mayan mosaic bathrooms in the middle that take mineral water from the resort’s cenote.

Azulik’s rooms are unlike any you’ll ever stay in. Outdoor decks on the cliffs have sea views and complete privacy.
