August 14-18 | Sanará Tulum
Sweaty Yoga, To-Die-For Food, Sun-Kissed Skin, and Sea Turtles
The driving force behind this award-winning project has been two extraordinary individuals who have been a couple working and exploring their worldly horizons together for over 10 years. Daniella Hunter was working as an underwater photographer in the Riviera Maya in 2001 when she first fell in love with the area. 11 years later she made the decision to relocate to Tulum with her family and partner - business activator and humanitarian - Charlie Stuart Gay. Looking to realize their dream of creating a curative boutique hotel where guests could heal, breathe and be free, the seeds for what would become Sanará were sown. With the assistance of long-time Toronto-based partner, David Woolfson, and a group of willing supporters, the dream became a reality at the end of 2014 when as OBI (Oxygen Beach Investments) they opened Sanará.
Building : Sanará Tulum is sustainably sourcing materials for our build and development. Foundations and structures have been built to incur minimal displacement or damage to the beach and to allow for the flow of sand. All of our structures are raised above the sand to minimize environmental impact and to allow for access for nesting turtles.
Energy : Tulum beach properties are all located off the town grid. This means that all electricity needs to be self-generated and fresh water brought in. Rainwater collection systems, grey water recycling, and microbe-based septic systems (Pirana) are being utilized to improve our sustainability model. Solar power, supplemented by generator power will be used wherever possible and we are investigating additional options for the breakdown of organic waste, and other energy/waste solutions.
Ecology : In addition to sensitive building techniques and infrastructure implementation, Sanará Tulum intends to maintain a commitment to ecological methods. It is our intention to source, wherever possible, local organic produce, and free-range eggs and meat to supply to our cafe and restaurant.
Toxic chemicals and cleaning products will not be used within the hotel (unless required by law) and Sanará’s Wellness Center & Spa will provide products, both for use in the Spa as well as the rooms, which are free from parabens, chemicals, and contain only natural ingredients and dispensed in recyclable glass bottles/jars.
We aim to run as a plastic-free, chemical-free and minimal waste environment.
Designed to accommodate, Sanará was created with options for intimate relaxation or social interactions with like minded individuals. A space that harmonizes with the beauty of it’s surroundings. The sleek and simple architecture is nestled in-between wildly sprouting Coconut Palms and Mayan Chit trees while the ocean provides ample breeze and the serenading sounds of crashing waves. Sanará' Tulum was elected #3 in the 150 Greatest Hotels in the World by Harper's Bazaar in 2017 as well as Conde Nast "Gold" award. The hotel design also won the 2015 National Competition in the category of Architecture and Interiors for Hotels from the Asociacion de Arquitectos e Interioristas, México. In addition Sanará' Tulum has become the recipient of the Gold Medal at the Biennial of Architecture of the Mexican Caribbean.
