When considering the best shalas in Tulum, not only should it look good, but also, what unique service does the hotel offer guests? Starting from the facilities, amenities, rooms, restaurant, and anything that stands out. So let’s discover and find out more below!


The stunning beachfront shala at Sanara Tulum is one of our favorites. It is a closed room with borderless sliding windows painted on the walls of the shala. Standing 4 ft above the beach, you have a perfect view of the palm trees, the beach, and the Caribbean ocean. It all harmonizes and exerts tranquility as you practice.

As the winner of the 2015 best interior design in all of Mexico, consider to stay in their luxurious rooms curated with soft double beds to melt into and eccentric amenities to delight in! This hotel can accommodate two to eight adults, from the simple garden rooms to the villa. Check out the numerous 5-star reviews, where guests love to talk about the cleanliness of the rooms, holistic restaurant, excellent yoga classes, and friendly staff service.


Another spectacular shala to visit is Tulum. Azulik Resort boasts one of the most sophisticated designs you can ever imagine! Its one and only dome-shaped shala, with walls built like a nest, ceilings tall as a tree, and hard floor made of marble, gives you a motherly nature and serene experience (free yoga classes if you stay at Azulik).

Besides their fun classes, Azulik’s location is set between the ocean and jungle and designed to harmonize with nature, which enchants your stay more than a regular hotel. It has 48 wooden rooms and features a private terrace with a stunning ocean view and the sound of pristine nature. As guests, check out the two restaurants and explore the art museum on the property. Many reviews say it’s the highlight of this resort, so don’t miss it!


Next is another serene beach shala at Ahau Tulum that’s worth visiting. It is built on the rooftop terrace above the restaurant, overlooking the beach and ocean. At the small deck is where they teach Arial-style yoga, which is rare to find in Tulum. Worth a try if you ask us!

Besides that, Ahau Tulum is a family friendly hotel where you can spend the holiday connected with your loved ones and the nature of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Stay at their luxurious eco-chic rooms, all designed with breathtaking ocean and garden views and a spacious private bathroom. Along with the rooms come superior amenities and facilities on the property. This includes free parking for all guests and offers transportation to do an airport pick-up at Cancun for an extra cost. Also, check out the 1500 plus 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor, which prove Ahau’s excellent accommodation, service, and staff!

“Breathe Out”


Tulum’s popular yoga & wellness resort boasts 3 grand shalas throughout the property. All are open-doored shala by the beach, but each is placed in a different location. Our favorite was the rooftop shala with a palapa at a high point of view (unlike other shalas), where you can see the palm tree leaves and the Caribbean horizon.

Also, this full service resort offers eco-chic rooms like no other boutique hotel, with rooms varying from small private to large shared rooms. Nestled close to each other with a beach or garden view, the property feels more like a rustic village than a resort. A village focused on restoring our spirit through natural materials that create elegant rooms and holistic restaurants and exerts a friendly-homey atmosphere. 


The shala at Ikal Tulum is our go-to hotspot when we visit Playa Paraiso. This multi-purpose shala is where various communities, events, and magic happens. From a spacious palapa rooftop to the breezy atmosphere, Ikal is a must-visit for every traveler at the public beach.

What we like about the hotel is its collection of eco rooms of cabanas, garden suites, and bungalows (with an outdoor bathroom), located in the middle of the Mayan jungle, a few steps away from the turquoise waters. Visit the Maia restaurant, enjoy the beach beds, play volleyball, and enjoy free wifi. Besides being the perfect place to work, they are also a pet friendly hotel, and the good vibes all over the site make you want to stay a little longer.

HOLISTIKA HOTEL TULUM (with free parking)

Come practice yoga in the middle of the jungle with Holistika. Where groups of communities of teachers and students gather to share their mastered style and experience. From the domo (our favorite) to the spacious shala, it comes with beautiful architecture and an energetic signature to dive deeper into the practice. Because of the closed-door shalas in the jungle, the classes feel more private and help your mindfulness journey.

And if you stay at this boutique hotel, your room is equipped with free amenities such as wifi and the private oasis pool. Visit the restaurant after the classes and enjoy vegan/vegetarian cuisine to revitalize the body. Lastly, the friendly staff service is consistent, and they always smile in your presence. That’s why we keep coming back!


Although Studio One is not a hotel, it’s worth mentioning because of how the shala is specially designed for. This semi-private yoga studio Pilates has complete equipment, personal classes, and service for adults, pregnant women, and children.

So, if you are into Pilates, Studio One is your first stop. Check out their site for details, and read 5 star reviews of happy guests on TripAdvisor!
