Designed by renowned architect Sebastian Sas, Be Tulum is a lovely beachfront hotel, comprising 64 suites, all with private bathrooms, air-conditioning, iPod docking stations, and either a porch with hammock and small plunge pool, or a private balcony and indoor Jacuzzi-bath. There are only four rooms featuring twin beds, and they can only be requested, and not guaranteed.
The hotel only accepts children over 13 years old, and features a great restaurant, small outdoor swimming pool, free Wi-Fi and the use of complimentary bikes. The hotel has a spa across the road which is a haven of tranquility, offering a variety of treatments, hot and cold pools and daily yoga.
The town of Tulum and its famous ruins are a 15-minute taxi ride away, and there is a growing selection of restaurants along the Boca Paila road should you wish to venture further afield.
This hotel is a little more secluded than most and is a really lovely, beautifully designed beachfront option in Tulum. The hotel does gear itself more toward young couples and feels very modern but we really like the rooms here and the beach is simply stunning.

Photos of Be Tulum
There are 64 suites scattered among the gently swaying palm trees, including some right on the beach. With a range of 13 suite styles to choose from, it’s easy for every guest to find their perfect accommodation. Private pools, solariums, balconies, and exquisite copper tubs are all available.
The decor is fresh and funky, and all suites have a private balcony or terrace, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, iPod dock, mini fridge and in-room safe. Interiors are rustic, yet luxurious with furniture made from reclaimed wood, cowhide rugs and comfy leather chairs.
Beautifully situated between the verdant forest, pristine white sand and the crystal clear Caribbean Sea, Be Tulum is a chic, relaxing hideaway located on the Yucatán Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo, southeastern México, on the northern border of the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka’an. The hotel is an hour and twenty minutes’ drive from Cancun International Airport. Two minutes on foot or by bike will take you to roadside bars, restaurants, food trucks and shops.
