Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa and the Allure of Mexico

December 3, 2014Tom

You can almost hear the chisel-tones of the stonemasons as they taught the bare rock the shapes of civilisation. It’s no surprise these people of ritual crafts and old Gods saw the magnificence of the sheer limestone, or the hospitality in the rolling hills of Tulum. In time they made it their seaport, a place to trade jade and turquoise, and soon Tulum’s prosperity was written in the fine paints of grand frescos. Unusually, they chose to fortify their homestead with a wall carefully plucked from the stones of the land, a sign of the heart, soul, and economy invested in this settlement. It was their home, their livelihood, their very essence.

This, at least, is what the ruins of Tulum tell us about their Mayan creators. The rest remains the most enigmatic species of history, teasing us with possibilities while withholding any sure sense of closure. But it is precisely this fact that keeps the region at the forefront of the holidaymaker’s mind. The stonework of Tulum tugs on the imagination, asking questions for the sake of answers we can never know, purely because the questions themselves are so remarkably beautiful. Who built the towering Castillo on the cliff edge? Who are the men and beasts in its art? How could these people merit such fortification? It’s like a jigsaw with half the pieces missing and the box long lost: the desire to speculate a solution is simply irresistible.


This is the power of the fragment. Tulum is beautiful precisely because it is incomplete, its former glory endlessly reimagined in the pieces left to us. Holidaymakers of every age and interest are drawn to this incompleteness, the most curious of curiosities, because trying to fit it all back together is infinitely more pleasurable than knowing the answer. It’s a part of the old world that will remain largely unknowable, and nothing nourishes the spirt like a good old fashioned mystery.


Whisk me away

Thankfully, the modern travel industry makes it easier than ever to fall in love with the Mayan world, and one of the finest examples on the market is Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. Elegantly situated in the history-rich town of Tulum, Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa marries the allure of Old Mexico with the ground-breaking family friendly all inclusive format pioneered by Dreams Resorts.


An outstanding basecamp

Much as the Mayans saw the strategic value of Tulum as a seaport,  Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa capitalises on its location. Within 5 minutes you can reach the Tulum Ruins, or the eco-adventures of Xel-Ha. Xel-Ha is an aquatic exploration through lagoons and caves, all the time telling the ancient Mayan narrative though artefacts and activities. If the dramatic features of the land catch your eye, there are a number of cenotes (underground lakes) that offer a unique opportunity to explore the hidden world beneath Mexico’s surface. But not only is Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa well positioned, it’s well equipped to house you during your holiday.


From grand stone to swish suites

Tastefully decorated in contemporary Mexican décor, the guestrooms and suites of Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa are designed to embrace absolute comfort for guests of all ages. Soft beds, colourful highlights, and stunning exotic views will reiterate the beauty of the land throughout your stay. Perhaps inspired by the grand stones of the region, you can also enjoy the smooth texture of marble floors beneath your feet. Better yet, Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa have not rested on their successes. 222 of their rooms and suites were recently refreshed, and new luxurious adults-only suites were added to the property. It doesn’t matter if you’re a family of adventurers, a pioneering couple, or any holidaymaker in need of some classic relaxation – Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa has your name on it.
