A sanctuary that defines the true luxury of leisure
Tulum captured the heart of hotelier Yves Naman. In all his travels, he had never come across a place as wild, raw and magically inspiring as there. Consequently, he was so charmed that he decided to create the ultimate boutique hotel experience there. So Naman bought a small beach house and turned it into an 11-room boutique hotel, giving birth to La Valise Tulum. In 2022, the hotel expanded to include 11 additional jungle suites and a luxurious SPA sanctuary on a separate property opposite the beach. La Valise is now an accommodation with two wings, divided between the original beach and the new jungle accommodations. The spa is also located on the jungle side and caters to both hotel guests and external visitors. Upon arrival at La Valise Tulum, guests will be struck by the staff's meticulous attention to detail, which starts at check-in and extends throughout their stay. Amid the lush jungle of Tulum, guests will hear the gentle sound of the Caribbean Sea as they make their way along winding white sand paths to their suites overlooking the ocean or jungle. Each suite is adorned with palapa roofs and luxurious, locally-made furnishings, creating a cosy and intimate atmosphere. As guests enter the jungle, they are immediately transported to a world of tranquillity, surrounded by the sounds of nature. In the heart of the jungle lies this haven that defines the true luxury of leisure. For those seeking even more seclusion, there are five additional La Valise suites with rolling beds where guests can enjoy a dreamy escape. In short, La Valise's décor reflects the natural mystique of Tulum while perpetuating the eccentricity of the La Valise name. This combination makes guests feel like they are hanging out in the beachfront living room of their most cultured, wealthy best friend. Respect is shown for the quality and beauty of local materials such as chukum, a stucco made from Mayan rubber trees, and palapa thatched roofs. Woven wicker lamps and wall decorations made of tropical wood look more like sculptures than accents. Every inch of La Valise elevates local craftsmanship giving it that je ne sais quoi of enchantment. Find out more about this haven through our PURE Hotels book.
