This September, in the dense mangrove vegetation of Tulum, a secret retreat is ready to welcome discerning adventurers and respite-seekers worldwide. Nestled amongst a swaying sea of lush emerald palms, the Tulum Treehouse is a private home located a stone’s throw from the heart of Tulum—yet it is a fortuitous jungle setting near the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve that sets this experience apart.
Here, a five-bedroom house has been created by local craftspeople in collaboration with an international design team, collectively putting sustainability above all. Large common areas, several spacious wrap-around terraces, multiple spaces for indoor-outdoor living, and five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms make up this exclusive, full-service jungle escape.
Located on Tulum’s most lively stretch on the main beach road yet set in the secluded jungle, the white concrete house enveloped by verdant foliage is bringing a new offering of tranquillity to the enigmatic scene.
Catering to new ways friends and family are travelling together, one where the intimacy of a private home meets the full-service levels of a high-end hotel, the Tulum Treehouse is the culmination of a new breed of compelling hospitality experiences. Through a flexible design concept, the house can be rented with only the three bedrooms, or as a five-bedroom accommodation, additionally encompassing the two-bedroom ground-level garden floor. Large common areas abound, indoor and outdoors seamlessly merge throughout, relaxing hammocks and outdoor showers invite guests to connect to the treetops, and full kitchens offer self-catering or private chef hire options. Most spectacularly, an impressive 12-person rooftop dining table looks out onto views of endless jungle.
At the heart of the Tulum Treehouse is a core ethos of community, to live in symbiotically with the surrounding environment, and to educate guests on this fine balance. Taken as a whole, this haven is a place to change the pace of life, to reset, to create space, nurture silence, and reconnect.
