Borrowing as much from far-flung lands as from its own surroundings, Jashita’s eclectic but Zen design (expertly fashioned by the owners) blends all four corners of the globe using neutral sandy tones and the occasional splash of color. Traditional thatched palapas shelter giant Buddhas, while Moroccan carved tables and urns work in harmony with Indian print cushions, exotic local shells and fine Italian stone.
Bed and Bath
The soothing, muted tones continue through the bedrooms, which are brightened by burgundy accents in cushions and wall hangings. Thoughtful design details include shell curtain ties, room-numbered beach bags and sliding mosquito net doors, plus such standard accoutrements as a minibar and iPod docking station. The natural stone bathrooms are a little on the narrow side but have powerful rain showers.
Jashita’s homegrown charm radiates through the Sahara Café’s Mexican-Mediterranean menu (also served poolside and on the beach). Personal creations from the property’s Italian owners include Tomasso’s Angus filet in Cabernet sauce and Enrico’s spaghetti à la pescatora. The exquisite fish carpaccio (served two ways) is the top tapas option. Margaritas are made to order, and breakfast, served beachside, is fit for a king. The diminutive spa offers massage treatments.
How to Get There
Unfortunately I only got to stay here a couple of nights, but quite possibly the most peaceful and calm place I've ever stayed. Exactly what I needed for some proper R&R. Staff are exceptional and food lovely. Only down side is they need to stop using plastic straws and water bottles as other hotels in the area are doing. Oh and as they are in a bay there is no sagrum/seaweed - so a massive plus!
A friend of ours, a compulsive and demanding traveler who is always looking for the best place to spend his holidays, while having one of the greatest lobster linguine of our life at the hotel restaurant, simply stated: "... Soliman bay... it's the Malibu of Tulum..."
Perfetto tutto il resto!
I spent 3 weeks in Mexico, 2 of which at Hotel Jashita.
The hotel has the perfect location: it is the only hotel in Baia Punta Soliman, just 10 minutes away from Tulum, where you can go for a bit of movida and restaurants while spending the core of the holiday out of the crowd and traffic.
The bay is protected by a reef that allows amazing snorkeling surrounded by variety of tropical fish (but no dangerous ones).
We also did a night snorkel with a full moon which was quite unique!
Sargasso (seaweed) is no issue at Jashita since the bay is in itself more protected than an open beachfront (Tulum strip can be quite challenging); and when it does arrive the staff removes it immediately.
The pool is amazing! It seems to be all in one with the seafront!
Generally, all the common areas are very well kept, clean and tidy and the tropical vegetation is incredibly rich!
The rooms we had were very big (4 kids in a double king size bedroom) and with a clean decor.
I loved the spa, which is located in the beachfront, where I received a memorable massage from Sara!
Now, if food plays an important role in your holiday, this is the place to be. Italian home made pasta (on the spot!!) and spaghetti at it’s best (always al dente!). Which is well explained if you consider the owner is Italian and passionate about food.
But you can also eat as you would at home...with light salads and plain dishes, or nice traditional Mexican food.
