Chill time at Diamante K!

 

Diamante K on the coast of Tulum is the most idyllic setting for a relaxing trip away. The private beach here, and with that your very own private ocean draws the crowds. At $100 dollars a night with a small number of rooms, this place doesn't really have that backpacker or busy vibe. It's aimed more at couples and young professionals looking to embrace the natural rustic feel of the place and just CHILL. The fact it's built in a national park, means that there is no electricity here, just a generator, which more than catered to our needs, of charging an iPhone or turning on a light. The location of this place, means that you get a nice cool breeze, through the day and more so at night.  The fact that the beautiful little wooden bungalows don't have air con is no biggie! The fans above the beds are more than you need, and in my case maybe a little too much (I get cold).

The open air restaurant, complete with dreamcatcher decorations, sets the scene and tone for this amazing place. The staff are nothing short of fantastic, and their warm, kind faces greet you wherever you go...."Hola", "Buenos Dias", "Buenos Noches" ring through the small community feel accommodation.  I remember arriving with my boyfriend late, once the sun had gone down, as we'd drove down the coast from Playa del Carmen (where we'd spend 4 days previously) and being greeted by the loveliest woman, Ana at the small reception area.  Ana was so smiley and welcoming, and her English - perfect!  The check in was so smooth and after, once we'd navigated our way through the darkness to our booked bungalow, we soon realised we had one of the best spots, opposite the restaurant and overlooking our own private ocean.  

It's a paradise built on the sand, with rustic wooden bungalows scattered around the grounds. We were given a bungalow right on the piece of private beach (see pic for the view from our doorway). The sound of the waves and the general ambience of this place, is pure bliss. The sun rises through your windows in the morning, and you can't help but get out of bed early, because you know what is waiting for you on the other side of the bungalow door. A moment can't be wasted here, an early morning swim in your very own private bath is just heavenly, followed by a filling breakfast of Huevos (Eggs). Delicious. Everything that surrounds Diamante K is a sensory pleasure, the sights, the sounds, the smells.

Puro Placer! Pure Pleasure!
