Boutique Hotels and Luxury Vacations in Tulum

Tulum, a once “off the beaten path” destination on Mexico’s dazzling Caribbean Coast, is known for its picturesque Mayan archaeological site perched on a cliff overlooking the turquoise blue Mexican-Caribbean Sea. Today, Tulum has become the hottest spot to vacation at in Mexico and has grown into a world-class tourism destination.
Journey Mexico crafts private, custom made itineraries for sophisticated travelers, we specialize in working with Tulum’s most sought-after boutique hotels and special, VIP experiences.

Boutique Hotels


Be Tulum Boutique Hotel

The smell of copal greets you as you enter this charming little boho-chic hotel, with rooms scattered throughout the trees all the way down to the beachfront bar. The suites offer a kind of rustic luxury. Natural materials such as bamboo, leather and stone are combined with all mod cons to give a laid-back, jungle luxury. Every suite either has a plunge pool or jacuzzi.

Coqui Coqui Tulum Boutique Hotel
Let the smell of coconut and orange blossom lure you in to this rustic chic hotel, built in stones that resemble the temples at Tulum’s archeological site. With just six rooms, the hotel offers an intimate treat for the hippest kids in town. The rooms are spacious and couple luxurious fittings like freestanding baths, designer hammocks and large comfortable beds.

Coral Tulum Boutique Hotel

Modern, clean, quiet luxury is what this pretty beachfront hotel offers in good measure. Coral will appeal to the more discerning beachgoer, who wants quality luxury rather than a trendy design hotel. Whilst the hotel is beautifully designed, the design is with comfort always in mind. The ample suites combine turquoise, cream and pink hues, the colors of a coral reef, reflecting the name of the hotel. Many suites have their own plunge pool, for a private dip, with a bamboo chair next to it, to gently sway in.

Thank you so much for your help on our vacation to Mexico, we had a great time. The [hotel] will become one of our favorite hotels of all time, the staff was great. The airport pick up was nice, but the airport departure was fantastic, your staff, helped us navigate the check in and was there to see us off.  So, so nice.   If we had more time, I would have preplanned a lot more adventures ahead of time.  The concierge, was great at booking trips last minute so it worked out.  We are thinking of doing Mexico next year again instead of Hawaii!
