A secluded, full-board stay in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, based at a new eco-luxury retreat with just five bedrooms, an infinity pool, two rooftop terraces, a private beach and more

If you ever wanted to stay in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, now’s your chance. With its remote location within one of Tulum’s best-known natural attractions – and one of just six in Mexico with UNESCO World Heritage protection – PLAYAAKUN is a perfect escape for nature lovers or anyone who wants to get off the grid for a few days. Your neighbours here will be coconut palms; mangroves; Caribbean fish; and, if you come at the right time, nesting giant turtles or their adorable little hatchlings.

The luxurious building you’ll stay in is also sure to command your attention. The vast, yet zero-carbon, Main House on this all-new private estate comes with a full-time staff and contains a 7,887-sq.-ft. entertainment area, a large infinity pool, an open-plan kitchen (where the estate can arrange for a Michelin-starred chef to cook you dinner) and five separate bedrooms. Plus, there are two rooftop terraces, with plush sofas, and a private beach with day beds, where you can sip on a mojito. They overlook both sea and reserve, so you never have to lose sight of your charming fellow denizens of this secluded tropical paradise.

Its interiors are spacious, with an infinity pool and deck; five bedrooms, four of which have sea views and direct pool and beach access; a 7,887-square-foot entertainment area; and two sea- and reserve-view rooftop terraces with sofas.

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is the only UNESCO World Heritage-protected natural attraction in Tulum and one of just six in Mexico. You’ll be directly within it and beside the vividly blue Caribbean, 330 feet from one of its coral reefs. As a PLAYAAKUN guest, you can laze about to your heart’s content, or let the staff arrange a helicopter tour to swim with dolphins, a guided trip to cenotes or Mayan canals, a fly-fishing excursion or a boat ride in the lagoon. You may also scout for some of the 300 bird species and view the turtles who nest here six months out of the year.

If you're up for explorations of the cultural variety, the town of Tulum is just over a half hour to the north. The dramatic Mayan ruins along the coast at Tulum National Park and additional historic archaeological sites further inland make for an awe-inspiring day trip.
