Small intimate hotel with a beautiful atmosphere away from the center
Located on a small untouched beach
Jashita has a great restaurant, but for a change of scenery try the beach-side fish shack further down the beach where locals dish up fresh ceviche and cold Mexican beers.Sarah Lowe

Jashita is a beautiful oceanfront boutique hotel ten minutes by car from Tulum and located on a secluded stretch of Soliman Bay. The coral reef offshore protects the bay so the glassy turquoise waters are calm, and great for snorkeling.
Jashita affords 21 beautifully appointed rooms and suites blending laid-back beach sophistication with a minimalist Zen style with natural stone floors, luxurious Italian linens, and deluxe bathrooms. The colors of the Caribbean have inspired the decor of the Venetian built hotel, and it is clear that every detail has been resided over.
A large stone Buddha greets guests in the serene lobby area of the hotel, beautifully fitted with Indonesian carved-wood doors, Moroccan art, relaxing sitting areas and a library of reading books to while away an afternoon. The hotel's Sahara Cafe adjoining serves delicious and locally sourced Mexican and international dishes with both indoor and outdoor dining. Fisherman head out on a daily basis to catch fish for the evening's meal, giving you the chance to sample some exquisite fresh food.
Although the seas are superb for cooling off during the heat of the day, Jashita also has its own pool and some of the guest's rooms come equipped with plunge pools. The waters in the bay are quite shallow (waist deep). The secluded location of the hotel creates for a serene experience in which you will truly be able to relax, and enjoy the stunning surroundings.
Jashita's 30 rooms and suites are beautifully appointed in a cool minimalist style and are fitted out with modern amenities for a truly comfortable stay. All are air-conditioned with lovely garden or sea views, fine Italian bed linen, beach bag, bathrobes, snorkeling equipment, cable TV and an iPod dock.
For breathtaking 360-degree views of the ocean and surrounding jungle opt for one of the wow factor Honeymoon Suites - there are three of these in total and they are located at the top of the hotel. The Cleopatra and Neferti can connect to create the vast Master Suite, Olympus.
Located on the top floor, the Jasmine Penthouse is a stunning option with access to the top-floor pool, a large private terrace and comfortable living area with glass walls which looks out over both jungle and ocean. The Penthouse combines with the Jasmine 1001 Terrace to create a larger suite, offering complete exclusivity of the facilities on the top floor. Guests will also be able to make the most of 24-hour butler service.
Children are very welcome at Jashita however do note that the hotel is very popular with honeymooners so there aren't any specific children's facilities or kids club here as it is more geared to couples. Some of the rooms have sofas that can be converted into single beds, babysitting is available on request and there are connecting rooms, but no baby cots. The waters of Soliman Bay remain shallow for a long way out so it is great for families as the reef does protect the hotel from the tides and is an excellent snorkeling spot.
Hotel facilities include a beachfront pool, beach palapas and the Sahara Café restaurant.
The beautiful coastal Mayan ruins of Tulum are just 10km from Jashita. The stunning Dos Ojos Cenote is only 5km away, while Xel-Ha Ecological Park is 9km away. The hotel also offers free daily boat tours including snorkeling trips (you will find snorkeling equipment in your room) kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding and complimentary bicycles for hire. Staff at the Jashita can also arrange beachfront yoga sessions, massages or scuba diving with a personal instructor. Fishing, kite surfing and golf (18 hole course 5-minutes away) can also be organized nearby.

When to go
The best time to visit the Riviera Maya of Mexico is typically during the drier, slightly milder months between November and April. The ‘rainy’ season begins around June and runs until November. Although it can be hotter and more humid at this time of year, usually it only rains for a couple of hours before the weather clears. Hotels tend to have more offers during this time and the wettest months tend to be September and October and best avoided. Please note that the Caribbean coast can be affected by the hurricane season, which officially is from June to November.
