PAPAYA PLAYA PROJECT


The ultimate private beach getaway, our beachfront villas fit your whole tribe. The eclectic design honors Mayan architecture and building techniques that keep the villas fresh and provide unobstructed sea views. Watch the time flow smoothly in the private pool and deck or walk to the beach. Take an outdoor shower. Delight in our chef’s exclusive villa menus and join our activities at your leisure.


As villa obsessed travel experts , high-end properties lure us in, in a very powerful way because of how well they market themselves.⁠ ⁠ One of our favourites is @papayaplayaproject in Tulum.⁠ Before we stay with them, we already know what that is going to look like. Where our villa is, what's on offer to us, what's happening around Tulum and what community events we can become involved in, depending on our interests. It's all laid out for us. ⁠ Most properties forget how valuable storytelling is. The little marketing investments can sometimes be everything.


Roxy Robinson Head of luxury travel and events for ROXSTAR by Centred and Co Founder of Tabula Rasa Wellness Retreats went to visit the majestical Papaya Playa Project, in Tulum, and had a wonderful time. She especially enjoyed meeting the General Manager Cesar Eslava. She said his in-depth knowledge of his hotel and all the services was inspiring. She also said she was amazed to see how much he cared for people and that she is confident that he will treat our VIP clients with the utmost care and provide the most luxurious service.



PAPAYA PLAYA PROJECT

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.





EVENTS & CULTURE


PPP IS A WORLD RENOWNED VENUE

Every weekend Papaya Playa Project gives itself to the jubilance of nightlife involving prominent guest DJs and musicians.

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.

PPP is the ultimate venue for weddings and couples.



PPP VISION


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.


PPP MISSION


In December 2011, Design Hotels™ ventured to conceive a destination in paradise along the Mexican Caribbean coast on what we now call Papaya Playa Project. Together with Emilio Heredia, they created a space for like-minded, creative individuals to unwind and connect with self and nature.


DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE


The design of the hotel evokes the traditional Mayan way of building. Papaya Playa Project adopted “Chukum,” a technique used by the Maya to cool the interiors of buildings made principally with the resin of a tree with the same name.


This is used on the palapas, as well as on the interiors as an insulation system. Our architecture is always functional and simple, using local traditions and wisdom, allowing Guests to interact more with Nature as the principal. The interiors are all designed with local traditional materials and textiles use by the Mexican natives from different regions.

PPP Offerings

The Temazcal is a traditional Mayan steam bath that stimulates the lymphatic systems in order to cleanse your respiratory tract and improve blood circulation. This is believed to be the ultimate relaxation experience to renew your body and your mind. We didn’t get to experience this during our stay but if we had more time we definitely would have loved to experience the traditional steam bath for sure.


The 87 key hotel is the premier barefoot luxury hotel in Tulum, preserving 93% of the jungle and 900 meters of pristine beach. Several sustainability programs are in progress, aiming to become a zero-footprint property shortly.
