How Do I Get There?

When you arrive to Tulum, head to the beach road "Carretera Tulum - Boca Paila." After four kilometers, you will reach the beach road at a T. Take a right and keep your eyes open; the property will be the first resort on the left. First is the Beach Club and Restaurant entrance, and just 200 meters after, you'll arrive at the reception.

Papaya Playa Project, together with Design Hotels, set out to discover a new form of hospitality, merging local culture and sustainability to set the stage for original and aspirational hospitality experiences. Most importantly, the Project is a cornerstone in the manifestation of our vision of a sustainable and responsible Tulum. The resort's 80 cabañas are sprawled along the properties 800-meter beach, all on the sea. A natural, rocky ledge raises the oceanfront cabanas from the sand, resulting in dramatic views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The beachfront faces directly east, allowing incredible views of sunrise each morning and gentle breezes of an evening.

  • Good To Know

    Power outlets exist in the wash area for those using electric shavers/hairdryers etc. The resort does not stock these items, so it's best you bring them along with you.

    Power outlets in Tulum make use of the US-style plug design. All cabañas have simple power lighting and several candles. Some oceanfront cabañas are equipped with in-room power outlets. A charging station is available at the reception area for all your power needs. Simply leave your phone, laptop, or camera with the front desk team as long as needed. Free Wi-Fi is available in the hotel's reception area 24 hours per day and all day at the restaurant.

    Each cabana comes complete with plush towels and bath products including a small bottle of shower gel and conditioner—all serviced daily by housekeeping.

    In terms of pricing, the key distinguishing factors are whether your cabana has a private bathroom or makes use of the shared bathhouses, and whether it is located on the oceanfront or set slightly back in the gardens. All are very similar in size.
