Although often associated with barefoot yogis and wellness warriors, Tulum does luxury better than anywhere else in Mexico. Say adios to sprawling resorts, however, and embrace Tulum’s boutique spirit, where bohemian casas rule the day and bijou is favored over big and brash. When it’s time to treat yourself, private beach clubs, Mayan-inspired spas and opulent dining experiences are on hand to hit the mark.

When it’s time to escape, all guests have exclusive access to the Balinese beds and lounge chairs of Mudra’s private beach club.

Views are best enjoyed from your bed or bathtub. Muted suites come with private plunge pools and swaying hammocks, and guests can also join free daily yoga sessions in the pitch-roofed palapa studio. For a little extra, try sipping (not shooting) Mexico’s famous spirits, tequila and mezcal, in expert-led tasting sessions.

    Elephant in the room: some luxury boutiques take themselves way too seriously. Not Coco Limited. Putting the play back in playa, this quirky beachside retreat has 26 rooms that draw on natural materials and let Tulum’s beauty speak for itself. Spend your days at Limited, its private beach club, where squishy poufs and sinkable loungers lie under palapa-style parasols. Yes, there are beach tunes and craft cocktails. Just don’t expect the thumping, bone-jangling reggaeton found further up the coast.
