We just got back from an unbelievable two week adventure, the majority of which was spent at the Ahau Tulum. We had spent nearly a year planning our wedding, all from far away, so seeing things come together the day of still feels like a dream. I typically only write a review when I am incredibly happy or incredibly disappointed. No exaggeration, our wedding could not have been better. The property was immaculate, the food was delicious and thoughtful, and the staff was extremely friendly. Many of our guests mentioned after the four-day weekend that they are dying to visit Tulum again and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else other than Ahau.
I want to give specific thanks to Ahau’s wedding planner, Nisia, who proved to be incredibly versatile, creative and effective while maintaining her very relaxed yet professional demeanor - in fact, our entire event got moved inside last minute due to wind and Nisia made things perfect. She was extremely resourceful and intentional in the way she set things up, has an eye for design, opinions on food and music you can trust, and even helped to fix my hair last minute! She was able to find us an amazing band for our cocktail hour, and even arranged for a marquesitas cart to serve up dessert during the reception. Thank you, Nisia - you rocked it!
Planning a wedding internationally is not easy and can be extremely frustrating. Communication and the pace might leave you praying for a good outcome, but please trust me when I say that Ahau not only has the best location on the beach, but an extremely talented and capable group of people that will leave you feeling like the luckiest couple in the world for finding them!
Kudos to the chef who innovated with in-season ingredients to produce an exceptionally delicious meal and beautiful food presentation throughout our stay. Many thanks to the reservation department who made our bookings easy - Ari and Jill, you girls are the best, thanks for your hard work and for always being so friendly. The Ahau staff, in particular Paris, Marco, Manuel, and Arturo were incredibly friendly and so much fun. Also, special thanks to the fabulous raw restaurant on the Ahau property- your food is simply amazing, and your generous spread of goodies to snack on while my bridesmaids and I got ready was so so good.
It sounds cliché, but this place really does start to feel like home. Tulum is a very special place, and Ahau captures what it is all about. We plan to make it back soon and can’t wait to see everyone again!
