Dotted along the beach and nestled in the jungle, the simplicity of the 100 rooms is what lends them their special charm. In addition to massages and beauty treatments, guests can also enjoy yoga, tai chi and meditation to complete the holistic circle. Being linked to the best DJs in the world, Papaya Playa makes music a key component of the experience. All communal areas encourage creative collaboration – there’s even an amphitheater on the beach, where guests can come together to perform, present or communicate in their chosen fashion with music, readings, inspiring lectures and more.
Papaya Playa Project is a destination for those looking to merge nature, relaxation, and spirituality. The design of the hotel evokes the traditional Mayan way of building. Papaya Playa Project adopted “Chukum,” a technique used by the Maya to cool the interiors of buildings made principally with the resin of a tree with the same name.
The eco-friendly cabins at Papaya Playa Project are beautifully decorated, with high ceilings and lots of natural light. Guestrooms have either sea views or views of the tropical gardens. The resort’s restaurant overlooks the azure waters, where diners can enjoy locally sourced specialties; along the beach, drinks and snacks are served from late morning until late evening at the resort’s Beach Club.
There is also a spa specializing in Mayan Shaman therapies and treatments. The Tulum ruins are located 1 km from the Papaya Playa Project. Cancún International Airport is 1 hour and 30 minutes away by car.
