Reside in Paradise 

“In one word, Amansala is perfection, great food, always a cool crowd, and just what I needed to hit my reset button.”- Amansala Retreater

Amansala is Sanskrit named after the peaceful crystal clear waters of Tulum. This village-like eco-chic resort uses all-natural materials and resources to create simple yet beautiful rooms, a menu full of fresh delicious food, and an atmosphere that feels more like staying at a friend’s beach house than a hotel. 

Relax and reconnect to yourself surrounded by white sand, palm trees, and turquoise water. The resort consists of two properties, Grande and Chica, both with Amansala’s signature Eco Chic Style, within a couple of minutes of each other. We’ll practice together in three beautifully designed yoga shalas overlooking the ocean while basking in natural light. Indulge in healthy meals served between two restaurants set on this property.
