Tropical luxury - Tulum
Another great recommendation from Agent B - Tulum, Mexico - if you’ve never been and you love relaxed luxury destinations, it is definitely one not to miss. You can unplug, change into your swimsuit, sundress and sandals and focus on the business of relaxing.
Years ago Tulum was a sleepy beach town but it has recently become a hot spot and for good reason. There is one beach road, lined with trendy bars, awesome restaurants, cute little shops and beautiful boutique hotels. Everything on the beach side is on the sand and everything on the jungle side is lush with vegetation. You can walk everywhere and explore, spend lazy days on the beach, enjoy a spa day, take a yoga class or take a day trip to the Mayan ruins or the cenotes.
Located 10km north or Tulum on the Riviera Maya in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Jashita is a luxury boutique beach hotel located on the coast of beautiful Soliman Bay, a private and protected beach, providing a real sense of seclusion and exclusivity, and panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. The experience is all about relaxing on the beach and enjoying some peaceful time out. If you are more of an adventure-seeker then there's no need to worry - you’re within easy reach of the spectacular Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza.
Jashita offers different accommodation options to cater all needs and preferences. As there are only 30 rooms and suites, a stay at Jashita feels exclusive and intimate. Choose from Waterfront, Superior Deluxe and Honeymoon Suites, which all feature king size beds, AC, fine Italian linens and complimentary snorkelling equipment. The Honeymoon Suites on the top floor have spacious terraces with plunge pools that take in stunning views. There is also a gorgeous Jasmine Penthouse, with 2 bedrooms, corner floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the jungle and ocean that let in lots of light and a gentle sea breeze, a large private terrace with a plunge pool, and private access to a rooftop with its own swimming pool and bar.
Guests can enjoy classes in the Yoga shala, and exceptional treatments in the Caoba SPA, which is set amongst the tree tops, with views across a private lagoon. The treatment list includes traditional Mayan healing rituals, massage therapies and cacao ceremonies, and you can expect a first-rate service from all of the staff, who take care of your every need.
Jashita’s beachfront restaurant, Pandano, specializes in locally caught seafood dishes, with local and international influences, particularly from Italian cuisine. The setting is magical and you can dine on the beach under the stars while listening to the sound of the waves. The adults-only pool bar is the perfect spot for a cocktail with a view.
At the pool area you’ll be greeted by big four posted beds with sun canopies, white crochet swinging hammocks and seriously soft squishy sunbeds. Take your time to bask in the warm morning breeze and soak up the sun. Dip your toes into the beautiful pool, or lounge on the steps in the sunshine whilst the wind blows through the palm trees.
The hotels rooftop offers amazing 360° panoramic views of Soliman Bay and the Tulum jungle behind you. Sip on fruity sangrias and have another dip in the cool tranquility pool looking out over the Caribbean, catch some rays on the sunbeds or take shelter in the shade on the loungers.
Jashita gives visitors moments of relaxation and peace on the smooth white sand beaches with emerald green water with pristine natural beauty. Despite Tulum's popularity and growth in recent years, the town has stayed authentic and true to itself and offers unforgettable experiences for every guest!
