The Papaya Playa Project, a collection of well-appointed beach houses and rooms nestled on the beach in Tulum is getting an exciting addition: handcrafted tree houses perched in a lush jungle setting.

The new tree houses are crafted from local Zapote and recycled wood and offer panoramic views of the sea. Stairs lead to the bedroom, an inner sanctum that includes a meditation chamber and a separate bathroom. The handcrafted wood interiors, textiles and local art add tropical elegance with a nod to bohemian chic.

Papaya Playa is an ecologically advanced property as well — the new tree houses were constructed in a manner that left the natural environment and native wildlife undisturbed, and all of the property’s furniture and decor are locally sourced.

In addition to the tree houses, guests can book a beach house or beachfront room,  all featuring a simple, rustic design that places an emphasis on the natural environment.

Papaya Playa Casita
The Authentic Rustic Casita has one king bed, two double beds, a full bathroom and a terrace with ocean views.

Papaya Playa is a member of Design Hotels™, a curated collection of luxury and boutique hotels and resorts with a focus on design. Amenities at Papaya Playa include a Mayan-fusion restaurant with locally sourced specialties; an all season Beach Club with a two-story bar and oceanfront palapas; an onsite water sports center and kite boarding school; and spa and yoga offerings – all within steps of the Caribbean Sea.

The new tree houses are available to book for stays starting December 15, 2016. Rates include complimentary breakfast, a welcome bottle of champagne, a bottle of wine, VIP bicycles, and a complimentary massage.
