Tribal Travels in the Riviera Maya

By Virginia Villari

Are you looking for the ideal home for your Tulum holiday this winter? Look no further than Cream!

Our pick of the week is the gorgeous Palapa Chic, a 5-bedroom/5-bathroom luxury villa nestled in the jungle on the Tulum Beach Road of Boca Paila. This beachfront property is located a few minutes drive or a short bike ride from the Sian Ka’an Biosphere UNESCO Site and from many hip restaurants, eco-lux hotels as well as boutiques with unique designs and creations by local and international artists. You’d better leave some space in your luggage when you pack for this adventure!


Terrace with pool and ocean view.

The beach house has the traditional Mayan “palapa” ceiling and open-space structure, combined with eco-chic wooden furniture, linen textiles and chandeliers. These refined and romantic elements beautifully blend with the jungly atmosphere in an harmonious flow. A tribal feel meets all the comforts of a modern property, maintaining the respect of the environment our absolute priority.


Living room with Palapa-style ceiling.


Double bedroom with balcony, hammock and ocean view.

All bedrooms have elegant interiors with minimalistic finishings in glass and wood, along with bespoke floral decor. Each one has a king-sized bed with mosquito nets, an en-suite bathroom, a balcony with ocean view and hammock.

The spacious living room has a warm and cozy vibe and it’s organized in different areas, furnished with tables, chairs, sofas, armchairs, long chairs, swings and everything you can possibly think of in order to relax! 


Open space living room and dining area.

The pool is surrounded by palm trees and lush, tropical vegetation; it has a stunning view on the Caribbean Sea, especially at sunrise.

Private beach access, housekeeping and private chef are just some of the amenities you’ll enjoy at this property.
