Welcome to Papaya Playa Project, Tulum, a Member of Design Hotels™

THE HOTELPapaya Playa Project is a creative haven nestled on the coast of the Mayan Riviera, adjacent to sparkling waters and the only Mayan ruins on the sea. Sustainability prevails here and guests will luxuriate in rustic simplicity in modest yet comfortable beachside bungalows. The Papaya Playa Project exudes healthy creativity-from organic, locally sourced meals served on the terrace of the beach club to cocktail and jam sessions at the resort's creative pop-up Tribal Room. Having spent over three decades developing spiritually through a studious love of yoga, the Tao, and karate, Emilio Heredia has a business approach that goes beyond simple entrepreneurial astuteness. Building on his degrees in electronic engineering and finance, Heredia went on to serve as chairman of various financial institutions in New York and Mexico, and finally moved to Tulum in 2004 to create a sustainable community that learns from and gives back to the local Maya, which finds its home at Papaya Playa Project.
