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
A little north of Tulum in an isolated bay protected by a reef lies this hotel that is the epitome of ‘boutiqueness’. Gorgeous rooms (some of which) open onto the essentially private beach that is kept sargasso free. If the warm sea doesn’t suit there are two swimming pools - one for adults only. The restaurant (on the beach, porch or under cover) is Italian (mainly) and there may be little inclination for you to seek elsewhere. Staff are uniformly charming and attentive. Our second time here and it won’t be the last!
It is easy, elegant, comfortable, friendly, accomodating, reasonable. Our first trip to the area. Lovely spot. You can waste away at the pool or on the beach. Great food. Nice people. We were extremely happy w our choice. We'll be back
Jashita is a beautiful hotel that is secluded and intimate with a staff that is beyond attentive and gracious. It's off the beaten path from bustling Tulum - 15 minute taxi ride away from the beach zone.
Wi stopped for drinks and to tour the property. It is an expensive location to stay , but beautiful. The property is , of course, waterside and beautifully decorated. A real gem!
As we were only there for drinks due to other obligations. We would go back for dinner.
not crowded, more than enough chairs, almost always pool to ourselves. The bay means the reef is 1/4 mile from shore and the entire bay is shallow and very small waves. The coral heads in the sand bottom have a fair number of fish.
