Amansala: The Original Eco Chic Resort

Amansala - This eco-friendly boutique has 24 thatched-roof cabanas with thatched roofs and rustic designs that include East Asian hints such as Buddha statuettes and incense burners. Beds are draped with netting that serves the dual purpose of creating an airy feel while keeping out mosquitoes. Lodging options include a mix of sea view, partial sea view, and no sea view rooms. The on-site restaurant is popular for its just-caught grilled fish. Amansala is best known for its six-day bikini boot camp sessions, which include yoga, biking, circuit training, massage sessions, and a slate of Mayan clay treatments. (Website)

Ana y Jose Charming Hotel and Spa

Ana y José - Ana y Jose, named after its founding couple, has 24 spacious rooms placed throughout the lush property, which faces a quiet, white sand beach about four miles south of the fortressed Mayan ruins of Tulum. Renovations have shifted the ambience from rustic and functional to high-end luxury, incorporating elements such as native marble tiled floors and thatched palapa roofs. The well-maintained pool is set amidst thick but well-tended vegetation, creating the effect of swimming in a jungle. Staffs tend the pristine beach, going so far as to remove washed-up seaweed by hand. Thatched huts on the beach are first-come, first-served. Guests are treated to a welcome cocktail and bowl of fruit in the room. (Website)

Grand Bahia Principe Tulum

Gran Bahía Príncipe Tulum - Gran Bahia Principe Tulum is connected to four other resorts in the Riviera Maya area, and has tropical gardens and native fauna that are found in Mayan forests. The 858 guest rooms differ in size and proximity to the beach. The brightly colored accommodations are located in three-story villas connected by large sidewalks that crisscross the grounds. The resort has a golf course, three on-site restaurants, a spa, and four pools—one of which is the size of a small lake and another is a dolphinarium—a pool where guests can swim with dolphins.

Hotel Nueva Vida de Ramiro

Nueva Vida de Ramiro Ecolodge - Located in the Mexican Riviera is a beautiful and exclusive complex of eco-archeological Bungalows built from exotic tropical woods and situated right on the beach facing the Mexican Caribbean Sea.

Superior facilities, grilled to perfection steak or fresh caught fish, natural reefs to explore in crystal blue waters, endless white beaches and tropical forests are just a small sample of the wonders to behold at Nueva Vida de Ramiro.
