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
When booking in Tulum I thought the Jashita was closer to the Hotel zone. It is actually quite far away - this was a wonderful mistake I made! The beach is beautiful, uncrowded and has snorkeling right off of it. The small hotel is so personal guided by wonderful front desk staff. The associated restaurant which provides daily breakfast is fabulous. And the spa services, which I tend not to indulge in are very worth it. While it was low season so there were no regular yoga classes we hired a private instructor through the hotel and the shale is perfect for changing any head set! Thank you Jashita for a wonderfully romantic vacation - so needed!
For people who really enjoy the nature and the silence, who want to relax is the ideal hotel. The rooms/suites offer all you need and even waterboiler for tea-fans (great plus point) and not a coffee-machine which always gives you a water tasting coffee.. Long beach for nice walks in the morning within the bay. Good service. Delicious breakfast with home-made marmelade.
I had no idea such a hidden jewel like Jashita would be and make me want to go back! From the incredible front desk managers, Laura, Abi, Brenda and Chris! We were made to feel like we had no worries in the world and it continued like this each and every day! They were so helpful and personable! They coordinated any and all transportation shuttles, massage appointments, ice taken to our rooms, etc! We had everything we needed at anytime thanks to these great people! If you want a quiet, private and a place that has some incredible amenities, don't pass the opportunity to stay here. I will be back as soon as I can!!
