La Valise opens its second property on stunning

Tulum beach in January 2018

3 years after opening its first property, a first of a kind 3 suites boutique hotel in then up and coming Roma Norte district of vibrant Mexico City, La Valise has opened in Tulum the second edition of its collection of unique places. Located at km 8.7 of the beautiful Tulum beach strip, La Valise Tulum is a 9 bedrooms hotel nested between the luxuriant jungle and the pearl white sand beaches of the Caribbean, just a kilometer north of Sian Kaan natural Biosphere.

La Valise Tulum is a small private Boutique Hotel that offers an alternative to bigger and more crowded hotels on the beach strip of Tulum; it offers all the comfort and amenities one can expect in the most luxurious hotels, but in a more private way. Our guests truly feel as if they were in a vacation home, yet with a hotelier service.

Originally built as a 6 bedroom private property in the early 2008, it has been remodeled to host up to 18 guests in 4 jungle view rooms and 5 beachfront suites. The main building has been expanded with a majestic triple Palapa roof, reaching up to 7 meters high in the Beachfront Master Suite. All the construction has been vernacular to Tulum building techniques and his handmade, from the palm tree saccate palapas to pool, floors and walls made of color altered Chukum.

 A Robinson Crusoe curated interior

For this very special property that has a spectacular view on the Caribbean and an equally impressive back view on an infinity pool taking you to the Jungle, Yves wanted to create a sophisticated and curated interior design. He asked Michael Diaz, antiques furniture specialist from Mexico City to curate the selection of fabric, colors and handmade furniture occupying the spaces of the bedrooms and communal areas. The result is at a crossroads between Robinson Crusoe and museum level curated Mexican craft objects and furniture.

“La Valise is an honest attempt to create a unique place and experience to guests who appreciate beauty, design and tranquility. The same way we worked tirelessly to provide the most personalized and unique service to our guests for the first edition in Mexico City, our intention is to provide the same level of hospitality to our guests in Tulum, while preserving the privacy and harmony with Nature that makes this beach so magical.”
