A New Tiny Caribbean Beach Hotel, South of Tulum

By: Alexander Britell - September 10, 2022

The Mexican Caribbean’s hottest beach spot is getting a tiny new beach hotel, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

It’s called Casa Chablé, and it’s set to open its doors on Nov. 1, 2022. But while Tulum is its nearest destiantion, it’s in its own world entirely.

The hotel is actually set 22 miles south of Tulum in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, it’s the latest expansion for Chablé Hotels, a top Mexican hospitality brand. 

The hotel is all about remoteness; it’s surrounded by 12 acres of tropical jungle, positioned right at the edge of a white-sand beach. 

Casa Chablé has just 10 rooms and bungalows. 

Five rooms are set in “Casa Principal,” the hotel’s main villa; the others are set on the beach side, with three right on the sand. 

The hotel is the latest project by interior designer Paulina Moran, with a focus on indigenous design inspirations and local craftsmanship. 

Casa Chablé is home to a lobby bar, a thatched-roof gourmet eatery, a swimming pool, an oceanfront wellness cabana and a gym.

There is also a rooftop lounge and bar with a plunge pool and a private beach with canopy daybeds and hammocks. 

The culinary program is designed by Jorge Vallejo, best known for his Quintonil eatery in Mexico City, long ranked one of the world’s best restaurants. 

In other words, it’s a tiny beach hotel with the amenities of one that’s far larger.

Casa Chablé is one of what will be four in the Chablé portfolio, joining the existing Chablé Yucatan and the Chablé Maroma, both also in the Mexican Caribbean, and the in-development Chablé Sea of Cortez on the country’s Pacific coast.

Even better?

The hotel is eminently green: it’s 100 percent powered by renewable solar and wind energy.
