Eco-friendly glamping in the jungle of Tulum
Surrounded by lush greenery each pathway leads to one of the 32 tents, each with a lot of privacy. There are 5 ocean rooms and 27 jungle rooms, each with palapa roofs, Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and a private terrace. All the luxury you can think of is present. A kingsize bed, an outdoor rain-shower, premium linens and even biodegradable shampoo and shower gel. That’s what we call an eco-friendly and super luxury glamping experience!
The design of the interior and the tents are bohemian elegant with handmade local hardwood furniture. True artisanal tradition and craftsmanship. You can see that they got an eye for every detail.
Property features and the amenities
Habitas has their private beach with infinity pool and a three-story lobby with a restaurant called Moro and rooftop terrace for yoga or meditation. On some nights there is an outdoor cinema in the jungle courtyard. Their wellness center offers holistic spa services and massages. Habitas also offers complimentary daily yoga at the rooftop, music meditation sessions, concert series and private or family dinners.
Private birthday dinner
Because it was Ilse her birthday during our stay at Habitas, Atiba asked the staff at Moro restaurant to organize a private dinner on the second floor of the restaurant with beautiful views over the ocean. The staff of Moro restaurant decorated the table very romantic with candles and beautiful flowers. The food was amazing, so delicious and super healthy! It was an unforgettable evening.
Before we start explaining about the to do’s in Tulum, we have to say that Tulum ‘is a vibe’. You have to FEEL it. The restaurants, cafes and luxury boutique hotels are all so well decorated with so much love for nature and details.
Despite that Tulum is a small beach town, it has a lot to offer. Cenotes, a lake, national park and of course the beautiful white sand beaches. But we have to be honest with you. Tulum, and Yucatan in general do have a seaweed problem. We were unlucky that there was A LOT of seaweed in June when we were there. The whole beach was covered in seaweed and it smells disgusting. So no beach days for us.
But besides that, Tulum is beautiful, laidback and the food we ate there belongs to one of the best dishes we’ve ever tasted in the world!
