Habitas TulumWhy We Love It The resort blends laid-back bohemianism with ultra-luxe sophistication. Highlights: -Forget landlines: You can reach the front desk and concierge by messaging on WhatsApp. -Wake early to nab one of the hotel’s free bicycles to cruise around town. -Though sinks and vanities are housed in a bamboo enclosure off each tented suite, the showers and toilets are entirely alfresco. If you’re looking to experience Tulum’s bohemian spirit without sacrificing top-notch service and all-out luxury, Habitas is the place to do it. The 32 safari-inspired tents are spacious and stylishly outfitted with king-size beds, New Age wall hangings, and antique kilim rugs, plus private patios, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi, not that you’ll need it. The glass-framed lobby doubles as a lounge, with fringed hammocks and floor pillows for low-key gathering, as well as a yoga terrace and spa where you can indulge in traditional honey masks and clay body masks. The wellness theme continues in the restaurant, an open-air pavilion that serves up healthy fare like hoja santa shrimp and chermoula-baked eggplant. Wash them down with craft cocktails made with locally sourced ingredients or, for the especially nutrition-obsessed, fresh-pressed juices at the beachfront infinity pool.
