Charming Hotel from the 50s has been Remodeled with an Art Deco and Modernist Ttouch
By Magaly • Nov 6, 2017
The Tiki Tiki Tulum Hotel is located in the city of Tulum, a walled city of Mayan culture located in the state of Quintana Roo, in the south east of Mexico, on the coast of the Caribbean Sea, and which is currently a major tourist attraction of the Riviera Maya.
The structure, dating from the 50’s, has a prominent influence from the Art Deco style, accompanied by modernist details. It is a combination of local designs and materials found in the region. It was designed by the architect Arturo Zavala Haag in 2016, and covers a total ground area of about 1000 square meters. Attention to detail is king here, and combined with the high quality of the space, it helps to make the project a stellar accommodation option.
The hotel is distributed around a central swimming pool that is the core of the project. It is a refreshing and visual oasis surrounded by tropical plants and an architecture that blends harmoniously with its surroundings.
The Tiki Tiki Tulum has 15 rooms full of charm, with a fantastic rustic touch along their walls — the same motif that we find in the bathrooms. Local wood has been used in its furniture, as well as in the carpentry details.
