Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Be Tulum sits by the beach in laid-back Tulum on the Riviera Maya. 

Rooms at Be Tulum

The gorgeous suites at Be Tulum are housed in spacious thatched buildings shaded by tropical palms and overlooking the beach and the sea. Some have their own private pools, and terraces to enjoy the views. Décor is pared back luxury - limestone, thatch and hardwood with accents of local handmade textiles.

Food & Drink

Head to Maresias, which means 'sea bar', where you can sip freshly-squeezed tropical juices (rum optional) and indulge in the freshest fish tacos by the beach, looking out over the mesmerisingly blue Caribbean Sea.


As well as enjoying a swim in the pool, you can indulge in a spa treatment on the beach or in the privacy of your room, or unwind with a traditional temazcal (sweat lodge) session, yoga or meditation. 

Activities at Be Tulum

Grab one of the hotel's bikes for a short ride into the main town, where you’ll find friendly locals, low-key restaurants and typical Mexican handicrafts. For something a little different, try a night tour to the ruins in the archaeological site of Tulum, located on top of a cliff overlooking the Caribbean. Or, if that all sounds too energetic, the powder-soft white beach is just a few steps away.
