Traveling continues to be one of my biggest interests. For me, exploring a new location, trying new food and learning about a different culture continues to change my outlook and perspective on life. Thankfully, traveling is also one of my husbands main interests too! We continue to search for new countries, new cities and exotic islands regularly…. all with a hope that we will be able to visit one day. Although our forever growing list changes periodically, there are a few locations that always rank high and seem not to move from the top…..one place being Tulum, Mexico.
As I searched restlessly online for places to stay, I was immediately taken by Azulik, Tulum. Although I re-discovered this one of a kind resort through their high ranking online, I first became familiar with Azulik after discovering their incredible, breathtaking social media feed (@azuliktulum). Azulik pride themselves on being a location where the distractions of the modern world (pollution, noise and social media) disappear. Yes, that’s right…..Azulik is disconnected! Although there is a connection in the restaurant (so you are not completely unreachable), there is no signal in sight in their tree house accommodations.
I can’t believe I am writing this, but not having an internet connection on the beach, in the tree house bedroom or throughout the property was one of the best features of this hotel…..in addition to their delicious food, sacred beach access and breathtaking views. Instead of spending the majority of your holiday reading online news or scrolling your feed, it is the perfect location to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you and the company you chose to spend your sacred time with. This extremely private adult only retreat and Mayan Wellness Center helped me recconnect with my husband (in addition to myself) and gave me the opportunity to take in my surroundings to an extent that I have not had since the digital age.
Without further ado… below are some of my top 3 highlights and favorite captures from what was truly one of the most magical and unique stays I have ever had in my life! Dear, Azulik…..I’ll most definitly be back!
PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS
I have been fortunate to have visited a few exotic beaches in my time, but the private beach at Azulik Tulum may take top choice yet! This natural beach is perfectly situated to the left of the sprawling line of sea view tree houses. The water is crystal clear and the sand is perfectly white. Paul and I enjoyed each day of our stay relaxing on the day beds and ordering food from the beach bar. With endless orders of guacamole, chicken tacos and cocktails…..the early evening approached before we would realize our beach day was nearing the end. Loosing track of time and meal times is for me the perfect indication that I am relaxed and my palate is satisfied! Oh how I miss those chicken tacos!
I would be surprised if someone could show me a more unique and breathtaking hotel room than the tree house accommodation available at Azulik. When I first walked into our room upon arrival, I had a moment where I thought I was dreaming. The room was perfectly situated overlooking the sea below, with a private balcony for taking in the picturesque views. In the room, there was a large round bed that when sitting on it you could see only water ahead, exclusive Azulik eco-friendly products and a lounging area which was perfect for a early morning read. On the balcony, Paul and I enjoyed their day beds, outdoor Mayan tub and the swing that hovered over the shoreline below. The service throughout the resort was incredible that it truly felt like we were the only guests.
REST & RELAXATION
For me, there are times throughout the year where my body and mind is in need for rest and relaxation. As a result of the resort’s Maya Spa, lack of wifi connection in the room and the peace that surrounded the resort…..I came back to my every day life feeling more rejuvenated than ever. Life is incredibly busy and stressful at times. Although heading to a party location or city full of tourist attractions is intriguing, treating yourself to a few days of pure relaxation is not only needed…it is healthy. Since I have been back to the great north, I have been going non-stop! I think another visit to Azulik is in order….I need a re-set and what better way than enjoying what Azulik has to offer.
If you are looking to plan a romantic holiday or a personal retreat, I can’t recommend Azulik, Tulum enough! Trust me when I say this resort is unique, one of a kind and truly magical!
