Recharge your batteries at this eco-friendly paradise.

Azulik Resort is a haven of tranquility in Tulum, Mexico. Comprised of 48 wooden villas, some on the sea and others tucked in the shade of the Mayan jungle, the accommodation seamlessly blends into its surroundings, offering 360-degree views and a level of chill unmatched anywhere else in the world.

With no electric lights, television or even Wi-Fi in the rooms, guests are encouraged to reconnect with nature, focusing on themselves and whoever they may be travelling with. Even showers are swapped for bathtubs, ideal for soaking and contemplating instead of a quick splash.

Unwind in the Mayan spa with treatments inspired by ancient healing rituals, hike in the surrounding jungle or hit the on-site art gallery IK Lab, which calls a treehouse home. The hotel restaurant, Kin Toh, also sits above grove. Built on stilts 39 feet in the air, it’s the perfect place to watch the sunset over cocktails and fresh Mexican fare.

The hotel even offers a series of activities called Mystikal Wanders, designed to guide guests in discovering the ‘perfection of nature’ and the ‘cultural richness of the Maya people’. A local guide will escort participants on a personalised journey of their choice, whether it involves paddleboarding in the lagoon, trekking through the jungle, exploring ancient Mayan ruins, speaking with a traditional shaman or swimming in local cenotes.

Three, five and seven-night packages themed after the four elements – earth, water, wind and fire – are available for those who want a completely tailored experience.

Leave your technology behind and enjoy a stint of utter relaxation only Azulik can offer. Your mind, body and soul will thank you and have you booking a return trip ASAP.
