Situated at the heart of Tulum beachfront properties, Sanara is the the ideal jungle-meets-sea hideaway.

Ana y José

Tulum, Mexico
It may be Mexico but you won't find any sombreros here. Located alongside the white sandy beach of the Yucatan Peninsula, Ana y José is a not-so-average Mexican destination that exceeds all expectations of luxury. In addition to hotels amenities, the surrounding area provides warm turquoise Caribbean waters and lush tropical rainforests, making it a nature lover's treasure trove. Design Tip: To redefine the idea of a Mexico destination beach wedding, keep the design fun yet elegant by merging timeless elements with pops of color for a stylish yet youthful style. The Archive team adores mixing and matching multi-colored drinkware such as our lavenderteal and amber goblets.

Akiin

Tulum, Mexico
The beautiful Akiin Beach Club in Tulum is named after the ancient Mayan saying "my place, my sun, my space" and is considered one of the most unique and magical spots in the Mexican Caribbean. Situated on the breathtaking Riviera Maya coastline, this dreamy venue offers the perfect backdrop for a relaxed sandy toed celebration. Design Tip: Play off of the colors of the scenery. Here, Archive paired teal goblets to match the crystal clear sea, gold flatware to mimic the flashes of light as the sun set and florist Maria Limon incorporated blush roses to play off the pink toned sand.

Casa Malca

Tulum, Mexico
Located at the most exclusive southern-tip of Tulum's main beach drag, Casa Malca celebrates the best of contemporary art and luxury aesthetic. Once owned by Pablo Escobar, the remodeled property maintained the rustic motif and added modern design. To play tribute to the artwork throughout the property we decided to create an installation of our own by draping chandeliers from the canopy of trees overhead of the ceremony setting. Design Tip: Varying antique brass chandeliers add timeless romantic ambiance while building eye-catching dimension. With an extended chain you can get creative on where to suspend the chandeliers from!

Papaya Playa Project

Tulum, Mexico
Cocooned by the jungle on a pristine stretch of the Caribbean coast lies Papaya Playa Project, a hotel and interactive playground. The property boasts a spa, amphitheater, holistic circle for yoga and tai chi – the perfect venue for those looking to merge spirituality with the peaks of a vacation. Weddings on the property have access to all the amenities. Design Tip: Nothing says tropical like a thatched palapa. At Papaya Playa Project we like to play off on those natural palapa fibers and incorporate neural earthy pieces like our coba side tables. The cobas were handcrafted by a local Riviera Mayan artisan with material sourced from the region.

NESTlearn more

NEST Tulum is a natural wonderland surrounded by a vast, lush jungle. As destinations go, there is nothing quite like the vibrancy and culture of the Riviera Maya. Inspired by the sea and liveliness of Tulum, the NEST property bodes well with minimalistic decor. Design Tip: Incorporate pieces that compliment and not distract from the backdrop that is Tulum Beach. As an ode to the ocean, we chose a color palette of neutrals enchanted by a myriad of warm pinks.
