Amansala resort and Spa offers relaxed eco chic accommodation like no other boutique hotel in Tulum. Rooms vary from small private rooms to large shared rooms. All are spacious, with attention to detail throughout. At Amansala, you can walk from your room straight into the Caribbean Sea for a swim, enjoy delicious and healthy meals that magically show up three times a day, and soak in the prana of this magical shore. If you are feeling adventurous, you can visit the nearby Mayan ruins, snorkel in the cenotes, or enjoy the bright colors and sounds of nature at the nearby bio-reserve. If you are feeling introspective, simply take a yoga class, have a massage (or two!), relax in a hammock, sip on a coconut, and watch the stars illuminate above the waves.
The resort is steps away from the ocean and the beautiful accommodations blend comfort with nature. Each room has beautiful plus beds, tiled bathroom, open shower, and a bottle of filtered water that is refilled as needed. Each room also has U.S. outlets to charge your devices and a private safe for your valuables.

Travel, Additional Information & FAQ’s
Amansala Resort is 90 miles south of Cancun on the Caribbean coast of Northeast Mexico known as the Riviera Maya, a verdant area bordered by a pristine blue ocean and emerald-green tropical forests and jungles. The world’s second longest reef stretches from Quintana Roo to Honduras with miles of some of the best beaches in the Western Hemisphere. The Riviera Maya is home to tranquil sea coves, bays, lagoons, caves, cenotes, and other landmarks that are vestiges of a culture thousands of years old.
The influence of ancient Mayan culture on the Yucatan Peninsula makes this area unlike any other in Mexico. The resort is located just a few miles from the ruins of the 13th century Pyramid El Castillo (The Castle) that provide a breathtaking view of the sea crashing below. Tulum boasts an unspoiled native village that is a refreshing contrast to the tourist towns farther north.
Amansala lies on a secluded road, removed from the other hotels in the region, with its own dramatic beach and private cover. Should you wish to retreat into a world of your own, the resort is self-contained, but with plenty of opportunities to explore the unique offerings of the Riviera Maya and its ancient, mysterious culture. We will be there during one of the most beautiful times of year, when the temperatures range from 78 to 85°F and the water is warm yet refreshing. Guests are free to explore the different beaches in the area, many an easy ride or even a walk from the resort, or simply relax on your private beach listening to the ever-present rhythm of the waves and enjoying nature in all its splendor.
