Nestled in the exotic entrance of Tulum’s National Park, away from the normal hubbub of touristy Tulum, is the intimate luxury boutique hotel Mi Amor. This designer love nest is the ideal romantic escape in a protected jungle overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Mi Amor takes care of every little detail, providing a carefully curated experience allowing you to unwind, enjoy and connect post “I dos.”
The moment you arrive, you are greeted with cool towels and a welcome cocktail in an inspiring tropical motif. The staff are attentive and discreet as they check you into one of the 18 beautifully appointed adults-only rooms. Each with its own private patio and some even with their own plunge pool.
Mi Amor’s poolside restaurant is renowned for its Mediterranean and Mexican-inspired menu created by celebrity chef Paul Bentley. The inventive cuisine is best paired with creative cocktails from the bar menu, penned exclusively for the hotel by award-winning mixologist, Jasper Soffer. Mix all that with an excellent play list, a spectacular view of the sea and you’ll be in the mood for more. For the ultimate in intimate dining, ask for the “On the rocks” private dining experience—a table for two set up on the rocky outcrop in front of the restaurant where the sea serenades the shore.
When not lounging in one of the seafront daybeds, or cooling off in the soothing pools, the hotel offers bicycles to rent for a quick excursion to the Mayan ruins, the park’s main attraction. Aside from the ruins and beaches, couples can venture to one of Mi Amor’s nearby sister hotels. Each hotel has a signature gastronomic experience to enhance your romantic escape. The Spa at Mi Amor was designed for couples massages and even a romantic bath with lavender, calendula and roses. At night, Mi Amor’s turn-down service sets the scene for relaxed romance with a unique love note, a thermos of herbal tea and handmade Mayan chocolates. When it comes to the little things, Mi Amor truly thinks of every single detail.
