There’s no better cure for a stressful couple of months (or years!) than a pampering retreat at some of Tulum’s most indulgent all-inclusive resorts.

And now that the newly-opened airport has officially started operating, there’s never been a better time to turn your plans for a dreamy Mexican getaway into reality – but with so many great places to choose from, where do you go?

That’s where the newest Forbes report on the best Tulum all-inclusive resorts comes in.

The magazine just released a data-backed ranking of the 12 top places where you can get treated like royalty this year, and the Cancun Sun already went ahead and revealed the best of the best, so, today, we’re bringing them to you.

Before we dive into the specifics, though, let’s take a quick look at how the places that made it to the top 5 compare in terms of pricing, amenities, and traveler reviews:

Resort Name Average Price Per Night Best For Standout Amenities Tripadvisor Rating
Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa $400 Wellness enthusiasts Clubs for all ages, entertainment team, smoothie bar 4/5
TRS Yucatan Akumal $550 Adult-only groups of travelers Infinity pool, cabaret show, butler service 4.5/5

Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa

If you’re a wellness enthusiast looking to feel refreshed and rejuvenated, Dream Tulum Resort & Spa is the perfect place for you.

While there’s a lot to love about this resort, from 24-hour room services to daily entertainment, travelers seem to especially love the fact that here, you’ll find social groups for people of all ages.

There’s a particularly great explorers’ club for kids that’ll keep the little ones busy while the entertainment team with Paola, Victos, Alex, Ricky, Paty, and Eric will make sure you never get bored, either.

TRS Yucatan Akumal

I could go on listing all the amazing facilities you’ll find at TRS Yucatan Akumal, but the reality is that most people willing to pay the steep $550-a-night price tag are mainly coming here for the infinity pool, amazing shows, and butler services.

The latter is made up of a team of 3-4 people per building, and they can easily be contacted through Whatsapp or the front desk should you have any questions, issues, or requests – it really is a premium experience.

Bahia Principe Sian Ka’an

This fantastic resort that comprises more than a dozen restaurants, nightly live shows, a spa, several bars, and four pools also happens to be one of Tulum’s most romantic retreats, perfect for couples looking to get away from the stresses of day-to-day life.

The highlight of this resort, though, seems to be the food.

Travelers can’t stop raving about Cenote Grill, which serves high-quality food 24/7, and the two à la carte restaurants Alux and Makado, where the food is amazing and the service is even better.

Right now, there’s even a deal going on for those who’re part of the My Bahia Principe loyalty program, so head over to their website (linked in the table above) to see if you can take advantage of it.

Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa

Considering how popular (not to mention immensely fun) the lazy river is in Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa, it’s no wonder Forbes named it the best place in Tulum for families with younger children.

Here, you can get your own floating hammocks and have the time of your life!

The Sky Bar is also very highly reviewed, with travelers mentioning cold drinks and a cool breeze that’s just perfect for beating the summer sun.

The beach bar, however, has insane queues, so if you’re not patient enough, it’s best to get your drinks elsewhere.

Barcelo Maya Riviera

Last but not least, we have what Forbes described as “the best resort in Tulum overall” – in short, the no. 1 title holder.

That would be Barcelo Maya Riviera, a place known for its gourmet restaurants, stunning pools, and 30,000-square-foot spa and wellness center.

What those staying here seem to love the most, though, is the music bar and excellent on-site eateries, which range from the high-end restaurants I mentioned above to the more humble taco bar which is just as impressive.

What’s more, the rooms here are not only reasonably priced compared to most other nearby places, but the resort is also offering year-round discounts for seniors, families of five or more members, and residents of certain countries, so head over to their website (again, linked above) and click on “Discounts” to see if you qualify.
