Bea Pernia of Bea Interiors Design designed the recently opened Roc Luxe Hotel in Tulum, Quintana Roo on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. The Miami-based interior designer was inspired by Tulum’s natural habitat. A 12 ft. tall organic egg-shaped dome with trees and palms passing through the holes welcomes guests as they enter the lobby area. Bea worked with local artisans to design and manufacture most of the hotel’s wicker and teak wood furniture. Bea’s other hospitality projects include Hiyakawa restaurant and Crudos Art House in Miami.
Roc Luxe Hotel is a sprawling, oceanfront hideaway with 66 guestrooms including beachfront bungalows, garden suites, and elevated treehouse-style rooms in the jungle accessible by a short tuk-tuk ride. The property also includes a beach club with private cabanas, an edgeless pool, a mezcaleria, Casa Mar restaurant, a soon to open omakase restaurant, gym, and a spa.
Local attractions nearby include cenotes, Mayan ruins, Coba Ruins, and the Kaan Luum lagoon.
