This Stunning Eco-Resort In Tulum Is Made Out Of All-Natural Materials

By Koty Neelis

Eco-conscious travelers looking for a destination that's just as stunning as it is sustainable now have a new bohemian getaway to add to their list. One eco-resort in beach town Tulum, Mexico aims to cater to guests seeking community and interaction and offers luxury beach-front rooms designed to be as eco-friendly as possible.

Located 80 miles south of Cancun on Mexico's Riviera Maya, Habitas Tulum was built with locally sourced all natural materials, and is located on an acre of land with a private beach. Many of the structures are raised on platforms to reduce the impact on the landscape and the rooms were made with indigenous materials, including natural palapa roofs and pale cloth walls.

Founded by Oliver Ripley, Kfir Levy and Eduardo Castillo, Habitas is a an experience-led hospitality group that also manages a nonprofit called Rise, which works with refugees in Africa to build community spaces. The group plans to expand with new properties opening in Malibu, Namibia, and Bahamas.
