The extremely instagram friendly hotel is built from a natural drift wood and glass. It’s philosophy is truly inspirational, the ethos is to reconnect with nature and your inner self. Minimal electric sockets, outdoor bath tubs, candle light in the bedrooms and wifi in communal areas only are part of it’s back to basics plan.

From the Mayan ceremony of warding off evil spirits with a scented smoke on arrival, to the technology free zones, it’s all about  finding yourself, recharging and leaving the stress of urban life behind.

Add to that it’s stunningly beautiful construction and location, it’s really hard not to fall in love with this incredible property

Cenotes – natural sinkholes within cave formations are a natural geological formation found all over Mexico. Many are in Tulum and the surrounding area. It’s a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, bathing in the cool, clear waters.

Breakfast on the balcony is the perfect way to start the day. Below: the jungle restaurant at Azulik serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Try the cinnamon pancakes and almond coffee, it’s a delicious treat.

Staying at Azulik was one of the most magical experiences I’ve had in a long time. The philosophy truly works, I really did reconnect with nature and also get a step closer to finding myself during this trip. For all of you who have stressful, urban, hectic lifestyles and want to disconnect for a while, I would highly recommend this enchanting experience.
