Cocooned by the jungle on a pristine stretch of the Caribbean coast lies a communal playground for the creative community. Papaya Playa lets you reconnect to nature with an urban spirit.
In December 2011, Design Hotels™ ventured to conceive a destination in paradise along the Mexican Caribbean coast on what we call now Papaya Playa Project. Together with Emilio Heredia, they created a space for like-minded, creative individuals to unwind and connect with self and nature.
Papaya Playa Project, together with Design Hotels™, has set out to discover a new form of hospitality, merging local culture, and sustainability to set the stage for original and aspirational hospitality experiences. Most importantly the Project is a cornerstone in the manifestation of our vision of a sustainable and responsible Tulum that can be an example of hospitality development around the world.
Being linked to the best DJs in the world, Papaya Playa makes music a key component of the experience. All communal areas encourage creative collaboration – there’s an amphitheater on the beach, where guests can come together to perform, present or communicate in their chosen fashion with music, readings, inspiring lectures and more.Papaya Playa Project is a destination for those looking to merge nature, relaxation, and spirituality.
Dotted along the beach and nestled in the jungle, the simplicity of the rooms is what lends them their special charm. The resort's restaurant overlooks the azure waters, where diners can enjoy locally sourced specialties; along the beach, drinks and snacks are served from late morning until late evening at the resort's beach club. In addition to massages and beauty treatments, guests can also enjoy yoga, tai chi and meditation to complete the holistic circle.
