NEST Tulum, Mexico
Once a private family home, back when Tulum was a secret hippie hangout with a smattering of low-key taco stands, NEST Tulum is now one of the best-loved boutique hotels on the beach. Simplicity is the guiding principle here. A less-is-more approach informs everything from the decor (natural fibers, materials, and color schemes, with furniture and art created by Mexican artisans) to its seamless integration with the landscape.
Each of NEST’s guest rooms (which span a cozy garden room, an ocean view loft, a unique tower room, or a private villa with dedicated personal chef and bartender) is surrounded by emerald jungle on one side and shield-your-eyes bright white sand on the other. Steps away from glittering blue ocean, you’ll feel worlds away from any sort of distractions.
To keep the atmosphere private and intimate, NEST Tulum doesn’t work with any third-party booking sites. Nor does it do any heavy marketing, ensuring most guests discover the hotel through word-of-mouth. This preference for travel based on personal recommendations continues during your stay – staff provide insider tips to give guests the most authentic and quintessentially-Tulum experience possible.
After a day of exploring cenotes, Tulum’s ancient ruins, and UNESCO World Heritage Sian Ka’an, gaze out onto the sparkling sea while lounging on your private terrace and feel your worries melt into the breeze.
