Tulum’s Trendiest Beach Clubs

In Tulum, it’s all about the beach, spirituality, and the gourmet food. Having listed all the hottest dining spots as well as the featured villas, we would like to share the trendiest beach clubs as a part of Sobevillas Luxury Guide to Tulum:


Ahau is considered to be one of the most emblematic beach clubs in Tulum. The Ahau hotel has a very artistic entrance that sets the mood of the upcoming experience right from the start: spirituality and relaxation. The vibe lets you disconnect from the world in a Zen yet stylish environment with comfortable cabañas and the turquoise color of the ocean.

In addition to beach services, Ahau hotel offers morning and evening yoga lessons and meditation sessions. The dining experience features a fusion of the Caribbean and Mexican dishes as well as healthy options with very creative presentations.


The beach club at Nomade Tulum is accessed by a tropical jungle path through luxurious outdoors tents down to the elegant space of stylish sunbeds, white sand and crystal blue sea. Located at the very end of Zona Hotelera and before the entrance to the Sian Kaan Reserve, the place offers complete tranquility and absence of busy Tulum noise which is perfect for total relaxation. 

The guests can enjoy full food and beverage service in their comfy beach beds without any disturbance. The food menu includes fresh salads and tasty seafood; both options are just a culinary success. Reservations are required and only credit cards are accepted.

Gitano Beach

Located in a semi-alcove of the rocky shore, Gitano beach is one of the most secluded beach clubs in Tulum and gives the feeling of being on a private beach. Founded by Gitano group, one of the top luxury restaurant groups in Mexico, the beach cub offers top quality service and the gourmet food menu along with the trendy DJ sets. Guests can also enjoy a killer breeze on summer days as they relax and cool off with one of their signature Mezcal cocktails.

Then, after spending the day relaxing on the beach, you can head a bit further down the beach to Gitano Beach’s sister establishments like Gitano, Meze for evening fun as well as Mezcal bar and jungle room inside which puts on regular discos and cabarets.
