The experience starts immediately, with the smell of copal greeting you as you enter the resort, and continues at every turn. The boutique hotel’s 64 exclusive suites, which are scattered throughout the jungle down to the pristine beach, have been carefully designed to complement the splendor of the area. Native materials such as wood, bamboo, leather, and stone are combined with neutral colors to create an undeniable sense of calm.

With a range of 13 suite-styles to choose from, it’s easy for every guest to find their perfect accommodation – they even have a Be Tulum Villa for larger groups. Private pools, solariums, balconies, and exquisite copper tubs are all available. Each of the beds comes with luxurious premium cotton sheets, making night times as relaxing as the sun-filled days. Additional comforts include air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi, bathrobes, and room service.

Guests can dine at the Maresias beachfront restaurant, which specializes in serving a delicious variety of seafood from oysters to tiraditos and ceviche. Other options include excellent dishes from the wood grill at 4 Fuegos, and a stunning international menu put together by award-winning chef Mauricio Giovanini at Ocumare.

Visitors can find ultimate relaxation at the connecting Yäan, Center for Healing Arts, founded by Bobby Klein and Sebastian Sas. This sanctuary of peace offers a range of body treatments, including massages, sweat lodge treatments, and Maya therapies.

When it’s time to discover the surrounding region, Be Tulum is ideally located to explore one of Mexico’s most important protected areas, the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. Speak to a Journey Mexico Travel Planner to book a trip into this World Heritage Site of jungles, waterways, and seas, which is home to big cats, crocodiles, whales, and much more.

As part of the Be Hotels group, Be Tulum´s sustainability program encompasses caring for the land and its people, as well as protecting biodiversity and encouraging the fair distribution of wealth. This is achieved through establishing mutually beneficial partnerships within the local community, alongside using science and research to inform decision making. On site, waste management strategies include the use of corn starch bags to replace plastic, the safe disposal of hazardous waste, participation in a waste separation program, reduction of the use of PET plastic, creating compost out of organic waste, recycling over 14 types of materials, and the use of biodegradable containers.  

 In 2020, Be Hotels started working towards carbon neutrality, buying carbon credits from the AMBIO Cooperative. Bonds equivalent to 1861 tons of co2 were acquired and invested in the Scolelté reforestation project in the state of Chiapas. The hotel group also created the initiative “We can BE the change” as a program that organizes beach cleanups with a team of permanent collaborators and the help of volunteers, removing over 10 tons of garbage per month. In addition to offering capacity building programs both within the company and in the tourism industry, employees have the opportunity to attend language sessions to learn and/or perfect English and French.
