Soliman Bay, s/n, 77780 Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico
The Jashita Hotel can best be described as a slice of heaven on Earth. Its setting in private Soliman Bay, just 10 minutes from boho-chic Tulum, is absolutely breathtaking, and the hotel decor embodies that same quietly luxurious feeling. This is one of those rare hotels that I could come back to again and again, and one that is absolutely worth the splurge. With uncluttered interiors that look straight out of ELLE DECOR and a decidedly sophisticated beach vibe, the hotel provides a complete sense of serenity without competing with the stunning landscape outside. I loved the touches of rattan, seashells, and creamy whites, as well as the open-air flow through all areas and sanded paths in between. Our suite had a jaw-dropping effect on entering–glass doors opened to our own private pool surrounded by palm trees and bougainvillea…the perfect place for afternoon dips. And what can be better than breakfast with a view? Maybe only the quiet stretch of crystal clear water and kayaks and snorkeling equipment at the ready, or the deserted stretches of white sand curving to the north for early morning tide-pool exploring.
Needless to say, it was hard to force ourselves to leave the grounds to explore Tulum–despite my adventurous leanings, I really could’ve been perfectly content just staying put at the Jashita all day. I loved that the owner, who lives on the property, personally thanked us for our stay as we departed. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves–be sure to click through the gallery above for lots of lovely!
