El Pez


  • Naturally designed swimming pool fringed with loungers and hammocks
  • Private garden leading to the beach
  • Exclusive suites with canopy beds and seafront verandas 


Luxury beach hut style and a laid-back spirit on the Riviera Maya

With thatched-roof beach houses lining the shore, from a distance El Pez looks like a traditional Mayan village. But come closer and you’ll discover a luxury resort that beckons you to make yourself at home.

Each morning, throw open your shutters to let in sweeping sea views. Laze away the morning in a hammock on the balcony then pick out a lounger beside the pool. Or grab your camera and take a walk along the cove. If it’s the right time of year, you may spot sea turtles laying their eggs – or their babies darting to the sea. Return to El Pez for a signature cocktail as the stars come out, followed by a candlelit dinner of contemporary Mexican cuisine at Gran Palapa. For a lasting souvenir of your stay, you could even book a cooking lesson to pick up tips on preparing local favourites.

El Pez is set on a peaceful headland just outside Tulum, a treasure of the Riviera Maya. Take a bike to explore the Mayan ruins, set on a cliff above a white sand beach. Or ask your concierge to arrange scuba diving excursions. With everything from adrenalin-fuelled kiteboarding sessions to local craft markets to explore, El Pez promises an escape to remember.
