It is my great pleasure to introduce you to my retreat Shambala Petit Hotel, located on the South Beach of Tulum, Mexico. You may already be familiar with the magic of Tulum and the beauty and peacefulness it has to offer. It’s endless white sand beaches and crystal clear ocean come together to create an unforgettable experience unmatched in The Mayan Riviera. Tulum is a calm and relaxing destination where tranquility is found just moments after arrival.

Great stay right on the beach, we witness a sea turtle lay eggs on the beach in front of the property, here is the not so nice, cash only you are made aware after you arrive not before you book, exchange rate is Tulum is pricey, load music from next door establishment every day from 2pm-7pm and 9pm-1am you are advised after you book not before, Lovely place otherwise, location is great, Tips: if you need a ride into town center take a colectivo van it’s $20 Mxn only.

We were not able to stay at Shambala Petit Hotel because their Credit Card Terminal was not working. Shambala staff wanted cash or payment through Venmo which was not an option for us. It was extremely difficult to cancel and rebook a different hotel with Expedia.com

We come to Tulum every year and we finally found the authentic Tulum style ! Exactly what we were looking for. A little paradise with the best energy . The breakfast with the other guests, Roberto the owner , and Alejandro the therapist ( he is physical therapist ) not only a massage therapist . It was the best TREATMENT I ever had ! Fully recommended

La Petit Shambala is a beautiful property located right on the beach, a great place to wind down and enjoy the Caribbean. The beds were comfortable, and the view from our room unbeatable. Roberto and his staff gave excellent service and were very accommodating, we even got some help to plan the rest of our trip to CDMX.

Shambala is full of love. Everyone who works there is kind and approachable and very helpful. The healthy food is delicious and full of color. The location is special. The cabanas are unique and you really live on the beach, with all the weather and sea creatures! Watercraft is available, a cool infinity pool, and everyone walking by on the beach stops to take in the magic of this place. Tulum has changed a lot since I was there 20 years ago. Upon leaving Shambala, it’s bougie out there and clubs and luxury abound. Yes, you can hear the clubs, feel the base at night. I preferred to stay within the loving vibes of Shambala and take it all in. I’d love to return again, especially with #soulfullwellnesscolorado

Incredible service and hospitality!! Spectacular grounds!!! Wow, wow wow is all I can say!!! This beautiful resort is right on the beach and as far as I know has the only beach front pool in Tulum This incredible hotel is set right in the heart of Action! The owner Roberto and the staff were incredibly welcoming, warm, kind and helpful and attended to my every need and desire! What I love about this place is that you get a true authentic beach hut vibe with a modern internal design and a beautiful garden too. It’s is paradise and I can’t wait to go back there!!!!

You will never get a better experience than you will find during your stay at Shambala Petit. There are so many thoughtful touches around this resort that show just how much they care about making your experience effortless. This place offers tranquility and privacy while still providing exclusive access to the best beach spot on Tulum beach. The owner Roberto is the nicest man you will ever work with and has lived here for over 20 years so he knows all of the best spots to eat, drink, shop, and party. The staff is all very friendly and accommodating. The best part is the breakfast every morning where everyone comes and shares a meal while getting to know one another. You will not be disappointed when you choose to stay at Shambala Petit.

We rented all the rooms at Shambala for our wedding party in Tulum. It made our wedding experience amazing! The location is perfect in the beach zone. The rooms are authentic but really pretty. The grounds and the pool are what make the hotel a perfect spot. It's the only hotel with a beachfront pool. Roberto and his team helped organize food and drinks throughout the weekend so it felt like a mini resort. We loved our stay!

Booked 6 nights at Shambala expecting this to be a "rustic" experience. Arrived and got my room, ok more of a hut. Air conditioning was marginal due to the large 2" gaps around the doors and other misc. air leaks. Was ok with that. Went into the bathroom, no hot water. It was hot & humid, so I was ok with that. Can't drink the water here and no bottled water provided. Was not ok with this and had to go down the beach to a restaurant to purchase one. Was extremely tired from traveling all day so went to sleep at 8:30pm. Little did I know there was a "beach club" next door. Music started at 9:30 and went all night. Ear splitting volume and massive bass. Painfully loud-and I'm a guitar player who was in many rock bands in the 80's & 90's! Needless to say, I left the next morning. Still fighting to get the other 5 nights $ back and to top it off, I got double billed, once by the hotel and once by Booking.com. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!!

I was here recently for a yoga retreat. This is not an American style hotel. Essentially the rooms are huts by the ocean and some are partially open to the elements. There is air conditioning but it runs only from 6 pm tp 6 am. Hot water is spotty at best. Expect to share your space with lizards, insects and the occasional iguana. You will be given two only bottles of water, but there are free refills in the public areas of the hotel. The rooms have sliding doors with padlocks and you will carry your key with you on your wrist. If you don’t like nature this is not the place for you. You will be going barefoot on the premises and there are bird baths in front of each room to rinse your feet. Sheets and towels are changed every three days. You cannot use a hair dryer as apparently this will fry the electrical system. Location is beautiful and there are plenty of hammocks and beach loungers for relaxing. Roberto, the owner, is frequently on the premises to answer questions and chat with guests. The rest of the staff have limited English, but are very nice and try to be helpful. The best thing about this place is the food. Fresh, healthy and beautifully presented. Each meal comes with freshly made juice. Many vegan options and chicken, fish and eggs for non vegans. Now that I know what to expect, I would return, but probably not with my family.
