Nest was opened in December 2015 by music industry veteran James Chippendale, who decided to call his longtime favorite beach getaway home. He worked hard to source products and furniture from local artisans including woodworkers in Coba, creating chic but minimalist interiors. The décor is reflective of its natural surroundings, with nest-inspired lamp fixtures made out of vejuco roots and pops of bright colors from the plush pillows and quilts. Seeing I have a love for design and decor it was so up my alley. It was the perfect mixture of beachy, chic, and boho. My eyes had gravitated towards this hotel many many times on the #tulum feed for its amazing design. The rooms were simple but chic but also had that charter that you see all over Tulum.
They had a small restaurant that over looked the water that was filled with drift wood tables, shabby chic mismatched chairs, over-sized wicker chandeliers and day beds filled with over sized pillows and throws. Every corner was beautiful in its own way. Breakfast is included in the stay, and it’s as delicious as it is generous. It starts with a shot of fresh-squeezed lime juice and a shot of probiotics, plus juice, fresh fruit, coffee, almond milk, toast, and whatever you want to order from the kitchen — huevos rancheros, pancakes, eggs, yogurt, granola. Also very generous is the hotel’s happy hour and its endless glasses of wine, beer, and Mezcal. Be prepared to reign yourself in after mezcal number three or you may miss your hard-won reservation at the uber popular Gitano’s.
For anyone looking for an Eco friendly small boutique resort in Tulum that’s walking distance to all this should be on the top of your list.
