Travel Tuesday | Beachfront - Be Tulum, Mexico

Images via Be Tulum


Mexico baby… it’s on the top of my travel list, a place I haven’t been but am literally dying to explore. And when I finally get to their magical beaches, I will be staying here – Be Tulum, the most stunning beach front accommodation.

Tulum is a small town located at the southern end of the Mayan Riviera, near Cancun, bordering the national park of Sian Ka’an, a coastal reserve that is a world heritage site, and far away from the bright lights and hustle of the larger all-inclusive resorts of Tulum.. something which I love!

Be Tulum offers suites that are spread thoughtfully throughout the tropical forest and white sands of the property. Some are beach front, some have plunge pools, some have ocean views from their private rooftop terraces, but all have the sounds of rolling waves when you wake in the morning…

The facilities include an infinity pool, poolside lounge, beach club, wellness spa as well as mouth-watering restaurants and bars… The best Guacamole you’ve ever had while in the pool anyone?! (and I can say this as my friends have recently stayed here and I’ve seen the pics!)

The Interiors feature natural materials which complement the environment, soft furnishings and designer furniture to ensure your space is one of sophistication and attention to detail.
