Olas Tulum is an intimate, boutique hotel that celebrates the connection between people and nature. Located on Boca Paila Road in Tulum, this property truly showcases what Mexico has to offer.

Their ocean villa suites offer modern design, but with the luxury of stepping into nature. Many of the suites are located meters away from the beach, with clear sea views and are shaded underneath a canopy of coconut palm trees. They are the perfect place to relax and be at one with nature.

Their story

The vision of Olas Tulum was first created when a property was found at the end of the beach road, at the gateway to the biosphere reserve. The house was built in the 1970s and had been specifically designed to work in synthesis with its surrounding natural environment.

Today, it’s the oldest structure on Tulum beach and has been lovingly restored to make it even more sustainable. The ingenuity of the original design has allowed Olas Tulum to operate sustainably all these years later. Read more about them here. All photos are credited to Olas Tulum B&B, Tanveer Badel.
