You can be at one with nature at a new eco-boutique resort in Tulum where clean lines blend seamlessly with the tropical jungle on the doorstep.
Jungle Keva is a new environmentally-friendly resort in Tulum, Mexico, where rooms are designed with local, natural materials that preserved 70% of the existing vegetation in the area during construction. It's designed to look and feel like "being in a small village in the Mayan jungle," with five close-knit lodges scattered along the lot, between the trees and stone paths.
In order to bring the outdoors in, each lodge has a private indoor-outdoor bathroom, a private terrace with a hammock that looks out onto the lush, tropical foliage and sliding glass windows and doors with timber shutters
Sustainable in nature and minimalist in design, Jungle Keva was designed by Jaquestudio, who seamlessly merged the airy, open-plan lodges with their lush, tropical surroundings to capture an immersive jungle experience for guests where the soundtrack is the the beautiful cacophony of the rainforest.
"All the project is composed of local materials, as well as low maintenance and natural textures, which provide a warm atmosphere to the buildings," the studio said. "The objective was to use materials that age with dignity so that with the passing of time the architecture acquires character and a deeper sense of belonging."
The resort is all about wellness and personal development and hosts a range of retreats and seminars that cover varied interests from yoga to writing, and history to cooking. Each day starts with a yoga class and a continental breakfast before guests are invited to explore the area with guided local excursions, including a private tour of the nearby Muyil ruins and the Tulum Archaeological Site.
