      About your stay

      Together with Emilio Heredia, owner of the existing Papaya Playa Beach Resort, Design Hotels™ has created a destination in paradise along the Caribbean coast of Tulum, Mexico. Dotted along the beach and nestled in the jungle, the simplicity of the 85 rooms is what lends them their special charm. The resort's restaurant overlooks the azure waters, where diners can enjoy locally sourced specialties; along the beach, drinks and snacks are served from late morning until late evening at the resort's Beach Club. In addition to massages and beauty treatments, guests can also enjoy yoga, tai chi and meditation to complete the holistic circle. Being linked to the best DJs in the world, Papaya Playa makes music a key component of the experience. All communal areas encourage creative collaboration – there’s even an amphitheater on the beach, where guests can come together to perform, present or communicate in their chosen fashion with music, readings, inspiring lectures and more. Papaya Playa Project is a destination for those looking to merge nature, relaxation, and spirituality.

      Architecture

      A barefoot luxury camp

      Situated on a 900-meter stretch of oceanfront paradise on the Caribbean coast of the Mayan Riviera, the barefoot luxury camp has an urban spirit that encourages visitors to come together and be inspired. There’s something to suit every need and budget – from Rustic Casitas, oceanfront New Casitas furnished with large terraces and roof decks, to stylish beach houses Casa Madera and Casa Palapa.

      Renovated by the Design Hotels™ creative team, the thatch-roofed cabañas are all ecological built with local materials including palapa (thatched) roofing, wood/plaster composite walls and bamboo window coverings. Each possesses a rustic charm while celebrating the luxury of simplicity.

      The rooms encourage its residents to soak in the warmth of the elements, both physically and mentally. The separation between man and nature diminishes in these rustic spaces and the absence of electrical outlets becomes a welcome reminder to truly unplug. The ultimate luxury in most of the cabañas is the private porch, where hammocks gently swing guests in-sync with Tulum’s laid-back rhythm.

      No-frills furnishings
