All we need after the suffering of this crazy pandemic is protection, hug, affection, comfort, and a nest! It is exactly within this concept that the Cocoon Hotel & Resort, in Tulum, one of the most exclusive and untouched corners of the east coast of Mexico, almost on the border with Belize, emerges.
Imagine five large sustainable nests nestled in the exotic jungle, with elements inspired by the blue of the Caribbean Sea and designed within the concept of ecotourism. Altogether there will be three residential cocoons with 204 apartments, two cocoons for the hotel with 167 accommodations and 16 private villas, in Selva Zamá. An innovative project born from the hands of the Spanish architecture and design studio, DNA Barcelona Architects.
The idea is to create a space to escape from everyday life, in an isolated, silent environment that gives the guest the possibility to reconnect with themselves and the local community, Aldeia Zamá. Respect for the ecosystem and biodiversity are part of the signature of the project created from natural materials that minimize the impact of construction. The water collection system will take advantage of the rain and solar panels will be installed to obtain sustainable energy.
Each cocoon will have its own natural pool that simulates a cenote (a place considered sacred by the Mayan people which means “cave with water”), area for sports activities, children’s recreation, bar and restaurant. All connected by gardens and tranquility on the Yucatán Peninsula.
Hotels connected with the local community and with projects aimed at preserving the environment deserve our respect. More and more we have to worry about what we leave in the places we go through. Thus, we are happy to do our part and with the certainty that we are leaving a clean world for the next generations.
Think about it with affection. The world is beautiful and we need to take good care of it.
XoXo and a great week.
