Ahau Tulum is a luxury hotel on a secluded beach located in Tulum. It opened in 2012, and the owners put a lot of effort into minimalizing the resort's environmental footprint.
The property's buildings were intended to complement the topography and nature, giving the sensation of being in the jungle.
The beach has beautiful sand, clear water, hammocks, and lounge chairs. Ahau lies in Tulum's beach zone, with many food and entertainment options.
The center of Tulum city is about a twenty-minute drive away, but there is enough beautiful scenery to take in along the length of the beach in the Hotel Zone.
Enjoy the sun at this hotel, which boasts a private beach, beachfront dining, and beach massages.
The hotel's rustic construction, handcrafted artwork, and bohemian decor are made entirely from local sources.
The hotel was built from the ground up using only locally sourced materials and skilled tradespeople. As a result, natural materials like wood, thatch, and stone are prominently displayed throughout the interiors, and the hotel does not use any plastic bottles.
The 23-room (including 16 junior suites and 6 master suites) eco-chic Ahau Hotel has oceanside rooms, rustic decor, and modern amenities. Plus, four little Bali Huts provide a full-size bed, external garden, and shower.
Except for three junior suites, all accommodations have ocean views and direct beach access. There are top-floor and beach-level rooms, and the master suites have an outside dining table and a full-size daybed.
As you soak in the sun on the beachfront overlooking the Caribbean, the energy of the water fuels your thirst for adventure. Tulum is packed to the gills with must-see landmarks and activities, from the ancient Mayan ruins to eco-friendly theme parks.
Daily yoga classes, access to a temazcal healing lodge, bike rentals, kitesurfing instruction, and meditation are just a few on-site activities available to help you find your spiritual center. Experience local life at Ahau, whether you're here for a romantic getaway or a solo vacation.
Ahau Tulum Statue
‘Ven a la Luz’ or ‘Come Into The Light’ is the creation of the South African artist Daniel Popper. Pop in and see Ahau Sculpture Park, where you can find mystical designs.
The 33 feet (10 meters) tall statue is made of wood, rope, steel, and many plants.
The Ven a la Luz features a large female body opening her chest where the garden of Eden hides.
Ahau Tulum Restaurant
The hotel has two restaurants: the dream catcher–decorated Ahau Restaurant, which also serves as the main lounge and reception area, and the organic Raw Love Restaurant, located in the hotel's central courtyard.
Ahau's pool is not about the size but the design. It's the place to grab a drink and soak your legs after you get tired of the strong Caribbean waves.
Beachside pool party? You got it!
Tulum Beach and the nearby Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve are great places in the area's natural splendor, and other attractions like the Ven a la Luz Sculpture and the Tulum Mayan Ruins are also well worth seeing.
