Best Boutique Hotels in Tulum
UJO Condo Boutique
You would be forgiven for thinking that UJO Condo Boutique has been plucked from a design magazine. A stark contrast to Tulum’s other hotels, UJO is cool, industrial, and square. We absolutely adore it.
Inside, however, tells a very different story. Each studio feels homely, decorated in a traditional Tulum style and equipped with a mini kitchenette, dining nook, and cozy bed. Greenery adds pops of color and breathes some life into the space.
Better yet, head up to the roof of the building where you’ll find the pool. Epic views await, though you’ll need to provide your own Sundowners.
Dune Boutique Hotel
Probably the most talked about boutique hotel in Tulum (and yes, that’s mainly for its party scene), Dune Boutique Hotel should be at the top of your list if you’re hunting out somewhere beautiful to stay.
Well, we say beautiful, but we’re not quite sure that covers it. Rooms are decked out in light linens, earthy tones, and plenty of rattan furniture. And that’s before we even mention the ocean view.
Rates are on the pricier side – but an excellent breakfast is included, so we don’t mind too much.
If you’re looking for Tulum boutique hotels on the beach, look no further than Habitas Tulum. This hotel has quite a reputation for high-quality service, dreamy rustic accommodations and an incredible breakfast.
Sold yet? We thought you might be. Just wait until we tell you about the private beach area that this eco-resort boasts.
Each suite is decorated with handwoven carpets, dark wooden furniture and warm lighting, and comes with a private patio and gorgeous views. However, if you fancy splurging, you can also bag a private pool.
Meteora Stay & Coffeehouse
Next up is a seriously swoon-worthy Tulum boutique hotel: Meteora Stay & Coffeehouse.
The hotel centers around a pretty big pool, and focuses on bringing the outside in through rogue branches, plenty of greenery, and hand-crafted furniture dotted throughout the accommodation.
The onsite amenities at this hotel are unbeatable, from the aforementioned pool to a chilled-out bar perfect for sipping cocktails as the sun sets. Though, you’re right in the center of Tulum town, should you fancy venturing out a little bit further to one of Tulum’s best bars.
If you’re looking to save cash, Meteora also has the swankiest-looking dormitories we’ve ever seen. Hostel-hopping has never been so cool.
Cormoran Boutique Hotel
South Tulum Beach
Cormoran is another spot that should be on your radar. This boutique hotel in Tulum boasts a private garden and cenote, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for a secluded escape.
Rooms are white, bright, and spacious – slightly more eclectic than Tulum’s signature style, but we’re not adverse to it. Especially when it looks this good.
A continental breakfast is included in the room rate at this hotel (a nice touch, considering it’s already a very affordable place to bed down) and you’re just a short walk from Tulum’s stunning South Beach.
For a classic Tulum boutique hotel, head to Kuukum Tulum. Right on the edge of Tulum’s archeological zone, with Centro to the north and the coast to the west, you’re ideally located for a serene escape in Tulum.
The pool is the standout feature here, set amongst verdant greenery and ever-so-inviting. Though, we dare you not to fall head-over-heels in love with the rooms, too.
A fusion of modern Tulum and Japandi decor, they’re ridiculously Instagrammable – think a palette of beige and gray, with sage green touches.
Picture our eyes bulging out of our heads cartoon-style when we realized just how cheap this Tulum hotel is. La Tulumeña really said, why pay more?
Rooms are simple yet stylish, equipped with everything you need for a short vacation in Tulum – a desk, AC, private patio, and beds that you’ll struggle to leave in the morning (they’re just so darn cozy).
Better yet, if you’re looking to get out and explore the town, the hotel offers bicycle hire so you can zip around Tulum with ease. Your first stop should be Parque Rotario, just around the corner.
Boho-chic is the name of the game at Una Vida. This dazzling boutique hotel has plenty to brag about: Gorgeous decor, lush jungle views, zen vibes, and a communal pool, to name just a few features.
The hotel was built into Tulum’s jungle, just outside of the buzz of Tulum Centro. Which means you can enjoy being close to all the action, whilst still enjoying the tranquillity of a quieter resort.
Depending on how luxe you want your stay to be, there’s a private chef (and bartender) onsite for an extra fee. Though with so many restaurants nearby, there’s no reason not to go and explore Tulum’s culinary scene.
Tulum’s boutique hotels don’t come much more beautiful than Hotel Muara. This is an adults-only hotel with 24-hour electricity (you may laugh, but that’s not always a given in Tulum) and dedicated room service.
Each room has a private garden and plunge pool, though you’ll want to head out to the poolside loungers to spend a lazy afternoon.
There’s also a Yoga Studio and Healing center onsite, so you can soothe those tired muscles before heading to the bar. Oh, and the onsite restaurant serves up tasty Mex-Med grub.
With a gym, pool, bar, and restaurant all on site, it’s no wonder that Irie Tulum is one of the best hotels in town. It’s one of the more recent additions to Tulum’s vibrant hotel scene, and its swanky offerings come at a rather reasonable price.
We particularly love the King Room, which features a rather cool stone wall that makes it feel as if you’re sleeping in a (ridiculously cozy) cave. Otherwise, the Deluxe Villa is ideal for groups of up to ten who fancy staying somewhere swish in Tulum.
Private patios, high-tech coffee machines, and pool/jungle views are a given in each room.
Copal Tulum Hotel
Possibly the most attractive boutique hotel in Tulum, Copal Tulum Hotel has us rethinking our own design choices and dreaming of a home decked out in rattan and pink tones.
Seriously, it’s one of the most beautiful places to stay in Tulum. The rooms are huge, with pastel pops of color and incredible views. Rooms are connected via outdoor walkways, giving the feel of a jungle stay with all the luxuries you could possibly need.
If you can afford to, spend the extra money and stay in the Deluxe King Room – the private pool overlooks Tulum, so you can splash around above the town.
This is also an excellent place to stay if you’re traveling in groups, as the hotel boasts spacious suites for up to 8 people.
Cielito Hotel Boutique
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly boutique hotel in Tulum, Cielito Hotel Boutique should be your first choice.
The property itself is gorgeous. And, we’ll be honest, the rooms might look a little bit outdated, but they’re spotlessly clean and well-maintained. There’s even a pool, too.
But it’s when the sun goes down that this hotel really shines. Warm lighting makes the hotel glow – there’s nowhere prettier to spend an evening in Tulum than at the bar and lounge at Cielito Hotel.
Era Hotel & Spa
Era Hotel & Spa offers a rustic-chic getaway in Tulum’s chilled-out La Valeta district.
Rooms each come with an open-plan shower, comfy beds, and a private patio, all of which is draped in a healthy dose of macrame – from planters to blankets.
The King Room is particularly impressive, with a balcony that boasts views of the pool below. Head out there for a cocktail or two during sunset and you won’t be disappointed.
