Though normally, Nomade is our hotel of choice when we go to Tulum, this time around we opted for something different, and went with Azulik instead. I always wanted to stay at Azulik, but this particular hotel is rather popular, so it’s hard to book it even in the low season, let alone in January or February, which tend to be high-visit months. Going there, we definitely knew that our stay would be different, but we craved the experience, so we made piece with the idea of no electricity in the room (aside from two outlets to charge your phone), no WiFi, and no shower in the room (there is a rather cute bathtub though and a communal shower should you want one). And an experience it certainly was, a positive one overall, though I must admit that going there next time, I will do a few things differently!
Things that we did like: the property was everything it promised to be and more! Probably the most unique and even magical environment I have ever come across, Azulik is a perfect combination of artistry and nature. I don’t think I ever felt more at peace, relaxed and in touch with nature as I did there! If you want a break from the world’s hustle and bustle, Azulik is the place to go! Take a morning walk on the beach, get a deep tissue massage at Azulik Wellness Sanctuary, opt for a yoga class, spend a day at the beach, and take a moment to enjoy extraordinarily views of the sea, especially at sunset!
Food at Azulik tends to be a rather controversial subject. Things like overpriced, not worth it, and not that good is something that I’ve heard more than a few times. So, we decided to try it for ourselves and here is what we thought: though it wasn’t the best food we’ve ever had or inexpensive, we certainly enjoyed the experience! We had breakfast in the room and dinner at Kin Toh and definitely loved both! Having said that, Tulum has a ton of great restaurants (CLICK HERE to Check out a few of my favorites), so don’t be afraid to venture out and try a few different things!
Sea-front villa is what you want when you go to Aziluk, problem is… everyone wants one, so they tend to get booked fast. Since the villa we wanted was unavailable, we went with Mayan Villa instead. Very pretty, it did actually offer a partial sea view, yet somehow the experience was not the same! I think the biggest attraction when it comes to this particular hotel is waking up in the morning and looking at the beautiful Caribbean sea, so if you can, definitely opt for the one with the right view. I know we definitely will next time we’re there!
