Conrad Tulum by HBA International

HBA International was the Winner of Hotel Over 200 Rooms – The Americas Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2022.

Located a few miles north of Tulum, in a secluded bay surrounded by a tropical mangrove forest and the crystal blue Caribbean water, the 349-room resort is designed to give guests a deep personal connection with Tulum’s distinctive landscape. Upon entering the lobby, guests pass through tall, ornate wooden doors, hand crafted by local artisans, and are immediately greeted by sweeping ocean views and an immersive art installation paying tribute to ancient Mayan architecture and Tulum’s surroundings.


The nature-inspired theme continues throughout the hotel’s guest rooms and suites, incorporating locally inspired stones, woods and metals. With floor-to-ceiling glass and extensive panoramic ocean views, the guest rooms are designed with warm tones and custom furnishings each with their own private balcony and plunge pool. Suites are complete with a spacious living room and adjacent dining area for up to eight people, as well as a spa-inspired master bathroom with a soaking tub and rainfall shower. Nestled within the mangrove forest, the Spa is a wellness refuge. Inspired by the legends of the Mayan gods and traditional Mexican herbalism in individual treatment rooms or “casitas”, spa offerings include an extensive menu of body rituals, a sensory Water Ritual including an outdoor pool and cenote, thermal facilities and the Mayan Manteada, an ancient massage technique in which shawls are tied around the waist to relax and realign the body.


The Conrad Tulum is the embodiment of modern Mexican beach style which is a natural sanctuary of solitude for those seeking respite. Immersed in the lush landscape of the Riviera Maya, nature is in harmony beckoning guests on a journey of discovery and adventure. The hotel embraces the local culture and local history as Tulum was the trade center for materials such as bronze, copper and gold. There are touches throughout that pay homage to the local trade and use of stones like the obsidian that can still be found in the Tulum and its surroundings.
