My wife and I stayed at Azulik for a week in mid-June for our honeymoon. We found the property to be beautiful--stunning--and the lodgings clean and unique. Our wait staff (Roberto-Manager, Antonio-morning desk clerk, Julio-night desk clerk) was informative, kind, generous, and extremely helpful. Roberto even offered to talk with me at length about eco-tourism (Azulik has limited power supply only available for a few hours every day; the cabanas don't have any AC or power and all the cabanas were built with local product), Antonio spent mornings with me discussing local legend and lore, and Julio helped us with everything we might need in the evenings, including bug repellent.
We stayed in one of the nicer suites situated on the top of a 20 ft cliff above the crashing waves. Every night we'd sleep with the doors open and take in the incredibly romantic sounds and smells afforded by the Gulf of Mexico. The decor, though minimal, was memorable: thatched roof, swinging day bed, incredible tree trunk bathtub, and a lockbox. The hotel is in Tulum's Zona Hotelera, about 4 miles east of the city of Tulum. There were days we traveled on foot to the other hotels and restaurants. It is easy to visit the other beaches on foot, and a jauntier walk to the Tulum ruins. We found it best to rent a car rather than paying $70 (pesos) for taxi trips into town and back.
Tulum in itself was a wonderful honeymoon destination. I'd recommend it to any couple who enjoys the outdoors. A lot of hiking, sight-seeing, ruins, and cenotes (swimmable/diveable sinkhole caves). We hope to return again soon. And we hope to once again visit with Roberto, Antonio, and Julio when we do!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Azulik – Adult Eco-Resort and Maya Spa is an extremely private and enchanting, adults only nature retreat and Mayan Wellness Center located by the sea in Tulum, Mexico, just 3 km south of the Tulum Archaeological Zone and 4 km from the center of Tulum town. This one-of-a-kind “off-the grid” Eco-resort (no electricity, no TV, no phones, etc.) features 39 hand-crafted luxury Tree House suites, an organic cafe serving breakfast and lunch and dinner, a beach bar serving fresh Sushi and cool tropical drinks, and Tulum’s premier holistic Maya Spa and Healing Center. At Azulik, the pollution, noise and other distractions of the modern world completely disappear allowing adult couples to reconnect with nature and each other in a loving, romantic and meaningful way. Each of the resort’s majestic wooden Tree Houses, made from Mexican Royal Ebony (Khatalosh), stand high above the jungle floor with spacious interiors, floor to ceiling windows offering plenty of natural daylight, super king size beds with mosquito nets, and custom made in-door baths, creating sensuous sanctuaries for couples seeking the ultimate tropical hideaway. All accommodations have private decks with outdoor day beds and sitting areas allowing for uninterrupted views of the lush green jungle and the azure blue Caribbean Sea day or night. A secluded, guest only “clothing optional” beach is accessed at the south end of the property and is perfect for sunbathing or swimming. Accommodations range from intimate Jungle Tree Houses with partial ocean views to deluxe Ocean Front Tree Houses suspended high above sea with spectacular 180 degree vistas of the Caribbean and the verdant Maya Riviera coastline. Another one of Azulik’s main attractions is our rejuvenating seafront Spa featuring traditional Mayan healing therapies, massages, medicinal herbal baths, Yoga and Tulum’s first Temezcal (Mayan Sweat Lodge). At Maya Spa we draw upon the natural energy of the sea and jungle of Tulum, focusing on the ancient Mayan tradition to transmit sensations and experiences full of love and serenity. We use cardinal points, chants, prayers, the sacred sounds of the Maya Conch Shell Trumpet and the healing power of plants, flowers, aromatherapies and enriched mud to restore the natural state of peace, joy, harmony and health. Azulik is an adult concept for couples over the age of 21. To maintain our atmosphere of romance and serenity, the maximum capacity per Tree House Villa is 2 people. The resort is gay-friendly and our beach is clothing optional. We do not accept children. For ecological preservation of the beaches and jungle, we are unable to accept pets in the hotel. Azulik Adult Eco-Resort & Maya Spa awaits you with open arms to share unique experiences and amazing adventures, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Come and be natural! ... more less
