Spread out over a 900-meter stretch of the Caribbean coast of Tulum, Papaya Playa Project possesses a rustic charm and offers guests a uniquely sophisticated natural luxury. As with the resorts 85 Casitas and Cabanas, the new treehouse has been ecologically built with indigenous materials and age-old Maya construction techniques.
Placing the structure on wooden stilts not only transports guests to the very heart of the jungle, both physically and mentally, but also ensured local flora and fauna went untouched in the construction process, an important factor for Papaya Playa Project "Sustainability means life for future generations and integrity for the current one." "Elevating the structure encourages the growth of jungle plants around the treehouse and ensure the building does not interfere with nature, we wanted to show the utmost respect to all the flora and fauna living in the jungle when building the treehouse."
The interiors of the treehouse mirror the visual identity of the resorts other accommodation and public spaces. Locally sourced materials and recycled wood mingle with simple, furnishings, while white macrame detailing gives the structure a special charm and unique appearance. The windows offer 360 degree views over the lush jungle and the jade-blue waters of the Caribbean Ocean. Fusing the beach with the jungle was an important element to the location of the structure for Papaya Playa Project. "Our mission is to promote a holistic and spiritual life, consciously responsible with nature and with their community. We also wanted to create spaces where guests experience the beauty all around them, physically and emotionally."
