Have a blissful wedding celebration on the beach in Tulum's tropical paradise
Updated: Jun 13
Tulum has a certain palpable magic that makes it one of the perfect wedding locations in Mexico. Its romantic energy, its bohemian tranquility, and the authentic character of the land, the businesses, and the people make this paradise the ideal place to celebrate your special day.
One of the most appealing things about celebrating your wedding in Tulum is preserving the unique beauty of nature and fostering a strong community. Planning a wedding or event in Tulum can feel worlds away from the cookie-cutter taste of the big resorts in other parts of Mexico. You can find true artisans and passionate small business owners to help execute the details of your special day with love and care.
At Mahayana and Zorba, we specialize in soaking you up in precious moments with your loved ones in the comfort of full homes with the care and support of our friendly staff. The tropical palms and lush greenery in the reception areas, the refreshing pools, white sand everywhere, and the turquoise sea as a backdrop make them a fairy tale venue for weddings, retreats, or family gatherings.
To start, you will need to hire a top-rated and trusted wedding planner to help coordinate the relationships; however, if you begin to look, you will find that our town is full of purveyors of slow-living and creating beauty in the world. We will provide you with a list of the very best event planners in the area to help you with the details and we will work with your authorized planner to ensure everything is ready for your celebration. Every wedding at our properties can be tailored to your unique vision. Couples can create a celebration that is an expression of their love and connection and include the people they love most.
One way both the Mahayana & Zorba properties stand out from other venues in Tulum, is the full property buyout for weddings. With the full property buyout requirement, you will have the entire property and private beach just for your group! Normally, this can get pretty expensive in hotels, and it’s almost impossible to have the entire place for you, but with us, you get an all-inclusive experience.
Of course, we have two wonderful options for the newlyweds' bedroom that will WOW! you right away! At Mahayana, our Casa Gaia, a bungalow on Tulum's stunning white sand beach, has incredible views. Nestled into natural greenery for privacy, you can enjoy the turquoise Caribbean from your bed and living area. It is the most romantic house on the beach. At Zorba, you can enjoy the Penthouse Villa with stellar bird's eye views of the white sand and turquoise sea from this exclusive and very private feeling home.
Let the sea breezes flow through the glass doors into your open living area or sit outside on the patio to enjoy the incredible vista. This home is carefully designed to connect with the breathtaking beauty of Tulum from each room.
All our homes include daily housekeeping and groundskeeping, an onsite concierge team to look after you during your stay, and night security so you can relax. Children are welcome, and we provide cribs, high chairs, and beach toys complimentary. Boogie boards, SUP’s, and sea kayaks are also available complimentary for guests to enjoy. We offer chef services, childcare, and massage on-site (for an extra fee), so everyone can relax during their time with us. Both Mahayana and Zorba buyouts include a cute Taco + Breakfast Bar onsite to purchase food and drinks a la carte to enjoy by the sea or in the comfort of your private villa. Please note that even if you decide to have your celebration elsewhere, we are happy to provide accommodations to your guests and family.
At a venue like our properties, guests are able to experience total privacy while enjoying Tulum’s breathtaking seaside and easily wandering the beach to explore the most famous part of Tulum. It is an unparalleled location and a true delight to see the reaction of guests enjoying the natural beauty of their surroundings during a very special event.
Whether you are planning a wedding or any type of get-together, we believe that Tulum is a truly special place to gather friends and family.
