Property offers direct beach access
Some say food at the on-site eatery is overpriced
A small retreat on the coast of the Riviera Maya, the environmentally friendly Ahau Tulum offers just 23 rooms, including suites with vaulted palapa ceilings, Balinese-inspired huts and a four-person beach cabana. Standard rooms have full beds and shared gardens with outdoor showers, while upgraded suites boast locally made furnishings, two-person hammocks, king-sized canopy beds and private decks with garden or ocean views. The hotel also offers an array of activities and amenities. Guests can take part in private yoga sessions; try kitesurfing or paddleboarding; or sign up for scuba diving excursions. A beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas is available as well. What's more, several top attractions – such as Tulum, Mexico's famous Mayan ruins and El Gran Cenote – sit less than 7 miles away. After working up an appetite, travelers can visit the on-site restaurant, where Mexican-Caribbean fusion cuisine is on the menu. Though some said the food was overpriced, recent visitors overall praised the hotel's service, design and location.

Critic Reviews



Named after the Mayan sun god, Kin Ahau, this environmentally conscious property has rooms ranging from simple Bali huts to palapa suites with 20-foot vaulted ceilings, enormous decks, and two-person hammocks that make you forget the day of the week. Suites are in two-story buildings, so top-level rooms have sprawling ocean views and those on the ground floor open onto the sand.



The Ahau Hotel could best be described as eco-chic. An upper-middle-range ... property that has hosted the likes of Richard Branson, the hotel blends handcrafted artwork and bohemian decorations with rustic architecture that used 100 percent locally sourced materials.
