Hotel Jashita is about as close to Robinson Crusoe perfection as you’ll get on the Yucatan Peninsular. But for those of you not too keen on spearing your own fish or thatching your own palapa never fear, the deserted island type experience comes with some luxurious offerings. In fact, the intimate 14-room boutique hotel has everything you could ever want right in front of you.
From the labyrinth of swaying palms leading into the blue abyss to the sleek and sophisticated rooms with an impressive array of amenities like Italian bathrobes, snorkeling equipment and gorgeous Frida-inspired beauty products, it’s easy to understand why many guests don’t actually leave the hotel at all, unless of course they feel like taking a break from the coral reef and on-site beach palapa restaurant and hightailing it ten minutes down the road to the slightly more upbeat yet still chilled beach bars of central Tulum.
Sure, the aim of the game at Hotel Jashita is to unwind, de-stress and be at one with nature, but the relaxed yet contemporary shipwreck-chic décor lets you ground yourself in style. The peaceful seclusion of the hotel (there are no other resorts within a 5km radius) facilitates a true disconnection from the hustle and bustle of reality. The straw loveseats and hammocks on every balcony make it easy to quite literally get into the swing of things amidst the palms and the calm of the sky and sea. Standard rooms face the garden, but all larger-than-average suites are oceanfront with airy bathrooms and comfy king-size beds.
