“Beach Paradise”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Ahau is the most genuine, most relaxed and definitely one of the most beautiful resorts in all of Tulum.
Staff and management are genuinely nice, helpful and interested in the well being of their guest. It has the perfect size - personal yet offers a lot of privacy. The architecture and interiors blend in beautifully with the nature and surroundings, are tasteful, comfortable and not overdone. Its stripped of the things you dont need in such a beautiful place and does those you do need really well. So no TV but high quality bedding for example.
The location is perfect, on one of the nicest stretches of this already altogether very perfect beach. Great Restaurants, Cafes and shops near by but
with enough distance to the more busy part of the beach.
When we were there the place was still partly under construction but left already very little to desire.
It is obvious that Ahau is a labour of love and we will definitely be back.

This ecological resort is a paradise like no other. Ahau Tulum is an entirely unique and enlightening Caribbean destination complete with private, tranquil villas and bali huts designed with incredible detail and bali thatched roofs. This tropical haven is both peaceful and inviting with a focus on daily yoga classes, stunning views of Tulum’s pristine beaches and tropical jungles. The food is delicious and fresh. The staff is incredibly gracious and helpful. I recommend Ahau Tulum to anyone looking for a truly relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting and welcoming environment.

We arrived in the late afternoon, and they were still "building" our room. But we were taken care of every well, with welcoming drinks flowing our way! We got to try one on the Junior huts and then the master one... All of them decorated nice, with recycled wood and linen from local suppliers. I took yoga in the mornings with a great instructor, and he manage to give all the participants a great session, even tough there was a large level difference, every thing from beginners to advanced. The staff are very polite and always eager to aid in any way they can. It was a great stay, and I would recommend Ahau to couples who want a nice 4-5 day get away, or friends who wants to have a nice detoxing weekend...

Room Tip: The Junior Hut all the way in the end gives the perfect privacy for a romantic weekend, the master h...

I have just returned from the very best travel experience I have had in quite a while. Ahau is brilliant - the rooms are spectacular: interesting, natural, breezy, luxurious, and the beds are magnificent. The beach is a dream: hammocks and ease, (white sand that never gets hot!!), private and quiet, with attentive staff ready to bring a fresh fruit juice when it gets hot. Spa services are luxurious: I had 2 massages, both outside in the ocean breeze, got incredible energy work and felt very cared for. The staff is so fantastic, I am sure that I will return. Pepe, Couron, Ines, Ola, Emer, David and the rest of the caring and fun Ahau Tulum community made me feel whole again after the rat race of New York. The yoga was athletic and centering, and the yoga space - overlooking the ocean and in the spectacular breeze, was truly a magical experience.

This place is the real deal. Just promise me this..........don't tell everyone about this jewel, I want to come back and I don't want it to be booked out.

Thank you Ahau! You reminded me that lifestyle is a choice - what a good reminder of the other choices available. I feel incredibly centered and at peace. You are so special!
