There are few very places in the world like Tulum. This ancient Mayan city in southwestern Mexico, is one of the country’s most beautiful archaeological sites, although it seems less imposing than the famous Teotihuacan. Ideally located on the Caribbean Sea, it attracts a great many visitors eager to discover the treasures of Mayan civilization and to take advantage of the superb fine sand beaches bordering the turquoise and transparent waters of the Caribbean Sea. The ruins on the site go back to the 13th century. Among them are the superb wall, with five entrances and two observation towers which once assured the city’s protection and the majestic Fresco Temple whose name comes from the fantastic work which is still visible on the walls, and which bear witness to the culture and the traditions of the Mayas. What is also pleasant about Tulum is that although the site was developed to respond to the needs of tourists, it has retained a certain authenticity. Three hotels, belonging to the Ecotulum group have been built here: the Azulik, the Zahra and the Cabannas Copal. These hotel complexes are based on one simple idea: to provide a warm welcome in a preserved natural décor thanks to the infrastructures which respect the environment and assure guests of tranquility and privacy.
The hotel Azulik in Turum is one of those atypical sites which offer guests comfort and a place to re-energize themselves in an idyllic setting designed to thrill visitors and leave them with unforgettable memories. Located just a few kilometers from the famous Mayan ruins of Tulum, the Azulik welcomes guests to its fifteen private villas which, at first glance, look like adventurers’ cabins, nestled between the tropical forest and the turquoise sea. Don’t however expect to find extravagant or flashy luxury here. The Azulik is a hotel where guests can enjoy a certain sense of simplicity and where they can communicate with the nature around them. The villas for example, don’t have electricity and are lit by candles. There’s no telephone and only one Internet access. A total change of scene is guaranteed to those visitors seeking a magnificent, peaceful retreat from the outside world. All the villas have king-sized beds with a large mosquito net, for a peaceful night’s sleep, a bathroom with a shower and a bathtub, and a large terrace with a view of the sea, a hammock, deck chairs and a small, very original private basin carved out of the trunk of a tree. They all have direct access to the sea and the fine sand beach.
Meals are served directly in the rooms and are prepared at the neighboring hotel, the Zahra, where guests can also choose to have dinner. A massage and treatment service is also available, and guests can have them administered in their villas or at the magnificent spa at the adjacent Copal hotel, where they can also discover the famous traditional temazcal baths.
