In a world where ancestral traditions are slowly deteriorating by the growth of the corporate world, Ikal Tulum Hotel stands on the frontier in preserving Mayan customs, rituals and care for the lush environment of Tulum and the land on which our hotel resides. The literal translation of Ikal- the Mayan word for spirit matter, is embodied in all aspects of our ethos, mission and architectural design.
Our mission is to inspire those who pass through our abode of the fierce and etheric beauty of the Maya, of Tulum, to preserve, be excited and rejoice in the mystical atmosphere we’re surrounded by. To uphold respect and a sense of wonder and adventure in experiencing elements of Mayan culture, like our Temazcal Ceremonies and other spiritual traditions that stretch back through the ages.
We strive to be a platform that provides different tools to regather and recenter yourself in the present moment, to encourage people to travel with a sense of wonder and excitement that roots itself in the intention of experiencing the beauty of the birthplaces of art, music, spirituality and a plethora of precious, metaphysical rituals and experiences.
