Wanderlust Locations with Amenities That’ll Enchant and Inspire Spiritual Awakening
Too many choices can overwhelm us, and we end up flipping a coin or settling on convenience.
I’m going to help you mitigate the risk of hosting a retreat that does not match your expectations.
You’ll find the following four places will only enhance and complement your ultimate retreat vision.
La Veleta is a neighborhood that is becoming the next most popular destination to stay in after the Beach Strip and Aldea Zama. Holistika has already become the landmark of this neighborhood.
This 18-hectare property consists of various facilities for you to customize your retreat to fit your spiritual needs. It boasts a yoga shala and a yoga dome built to enhance acoustics, perfect for sound healing. If guiding a vision board or painting class is part of your retreat, there’s a building dedicated for artists to come together to create. Their outdoor restaurant is a popular brunch spot, serving eggs benedict with charcoal hollandaise sauce and acai bowls with homemade almond butter. A big part of the jungle property hosts art installations from local artists.
These beautiful installations would hold your attention to the present moment as you take your walking meditations.
A page on their website is dedicated to retreats, where you can fill out a contact form to get the conversation started.
2. Jungle Keva
If you’re looking for tranquility and elegance, Jungle Keva is where you need to book your retreat. Organizing a retreat is no small feat, but Jungle Keva brings you clarity and attentive assistance where they essentially become an extension of your team. On their website, you’ll find information that would take guessing out of the equation. The excellent staff helps you organize from ayurvedic cooking classes to excursions to sacred cenotes and jungle ziplining. Their yoga studio opens up to a view of their pool surrounded by lush greenery. Their restaurant serves beautifully plated food highlighting local ingredients. Each dish is attended to with a lot of thought that you can taste.
Whether it’s making their own yogurt or grounding spices to create the best chai latte in Tulum, you can guarantee your retreat guests a heart-fulfilling culinary experience.
After a satisfying meal, head back to one of their five luxurious lodges for a peaceful night’s rest.
Ikal is situated in the National Park area. Crystal waters and white sand continues down this side of the beach. There are minimal restaurants and hotel establishments here, so it doesn’t attract the Tulum partying crowd. Instead, you’ll find yourself amongst diverse yet like-minded individuals who are there to bring the best out of each other.
Surrounded by endemic nature, the creative minds behind Ikal organize various events and ceremonies that tap into ancient Mayan traditions.
Continuing their emphasis on connecting with traditions on the dishes served at Maia restaurant, the talented chefs use old cooking methods and make corn as their star ingredient. To host your retreat here, you would reach out to them through email to begin the conversation. If you’re looking to host a retreat that includes an abundance of amenities to help you cultivate your spiritual nature, and discovering generational influences within yourself, this would be the ideal place for you.
4. Casa Naga
Think secret location, think connecting to nature in all its wild and spiritualistic form - this is Casa Naga. Located in the jungle side of Tulum Beach road, you’ll feel a universe away from the famous Beach Strip.
Casa Naga is a place for spiritual healing - period.
You are transported to a place where surrounding nature feels ancient and wise. So open yourself up to the knowledge it brings. A single octagonal-shaped stunning palapa hosts up to 12 guests. An expansive deck sits on this property overlooking a cenote where yoga and ceremonies are held. The peacefulness is palpable. If you are looking to host a one-of-a-kind retreat that is meant for deep introspection and healing, then you just discovered a hidden gem. There is no website for you to visit; however, take a look at their Instagram profile, which has minimal but beautiful content (there’s even an endearing story behind the palapa, go check it out)
Each of these phenomenal destinations would help you create an unforgettable experience.
Tulum is sometimes known as a spiritual vortex. This place holds an energy that cultivates your innate desire to connect. And if you stay aligned with your heart’s purpose, I have no doubt, the retreat you plan to host, or looking to attend here in Tulum, will be everything you imagine and more.
