Tulum location in Mexico is the venue of an ancient walled waterfront city of the Mayas civilization. Today still remains a major port of the contemporary Mexican state of Quintana Roo. It is one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Mayas. Even nowadays visitor can see their pyramids, canals and ruins as they dominate twelve-meter height cliffs by the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea. Tulum is also famous for its world’s second biggest coral reef, the famous Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, extended from Mexico to Honduras that preserves rare species of sea fauna and flora. Contemporary Tulum, apart from being one of the best-preserved coastal Maya cities, is also such a popular place that tourists can visit.
This great-looking hotel in Tulum region is named Treehouse.
Despite that, this guest house is located at the heart of a tropical jungle, it combines remarkable innovative global design with an obvious local touch of handmade tradition of the Yucatan area.
All elements of the Tulum Treehouse hotel are organic, environmental friendly and handmade. It is also really impressive how a modern classy note lives together with vintage art, from bed linen to weathered wood, contributing to a co-existence between Old and New.Especially about the wood it is important to mention that everything comes from fallen and diseased trees of the tropic area of Veracruz. Rivers’ overflows is a common phenomenon here and offers numerous uprooted tree trunks that turn into sole furniture works and pieces of art.
The overall result seems like a gained bet: a large community of people -landlords and renters, guests, craftsmen and builders, locals and internationals- lives incorporated with surrounding environment, in a renewable, eco and sustainable way of life.
Gathering and meeting areas of the Tulum Treehouse hotel are really wide, from open-air terraces that offer generous view in the ecosystem to both internal and external eating rooms, not to forget the significant number of bedrooms.
Local wood named Tzalam acts as an eye-catch: it is a bright contradiction of a natural material to polished white concrete which conquers.
