Tulum’s visiting influencers and free spirits have a hot new boutique hotel option with the recent addition of the Kimpton Aluna Tulum. Located right in between the best of the region – the bar and shop-filled downtown Tulum and the beautiful people-packed white sand beaches – the hotel has become the talk of the breezy bohemian town.
A Look Inside Kimpton Aluna Tulum
Its arrival marks the Kimpton hotel brand’s first hotel in Mexico. The sleek yet serene, and photo-worthy spot (an important requirement in Tulum, naturally) features 72 rooms and six suites and welcomes kids and furry friends with open arms. For the latter, pet sitting and dog walking is even available.
With that said, the sophisticated, eco-chic hotel is more of a low-key see-and-be-seen spot than the perfect choice for a family vacation.
The hotel brings all of the appreciated details and amenities of its other properties and features healthy, chef-driven dining and memorable cocktails to enjoy on the greenery-filled (and a little scene-y) rooftop. Connecting with nature is simple thanks to the hotel’s lush surroundings, peaceful thatched-roof terraces on all rooms, and the integration of the local nature in its design.
Celebrated dining concept Parallel 20° is open for all three meals and centres on a colourful organic menu with tastes of the Riviera Maya. Crowd-pleasing dishes include things like bright breakfast bowls, tacos, flatbreads, and fresh sea scallops (to name a few. (Naturally, avocado toast is a menu mainstay).
Meanwhile, on the lush rooftop, Bhanu Sky Kitchen has become a go-to for small portions of fresh local fish and meat options – all made in a stunning exposed kitchen where the focus is on unique creations based on fire, coal, and smoke.
Appreciated amenities at the Kimpton Aluna include a main ground level pool, a rooftop pool and bar, a tranquil full-service spa, a beach club with butlers, and a 24-hour fitness centre. Offering a balanced experience, the hotel offers yoga, meditation sessions, cocktail classes, and nightly DJs.
With a focus on “good energy and inspiration,” the hotel brings full boho vibes with a curated experience that resonates with its visitors – most of whom have documented their experience on social media.
