The aparthotel is super new, it just opened end of 2020 in La Veleta in Tulum. With its cool plunge pools in most of the rooms, Cacao Tulum has become one of the top hotels in Mexico with private pools.
Tulum Hotel With Private Pool In Room
At Cacao Tulum the term private plunge pool is taken to the next level. Their studios and 1-bedrooms feature a private plunge pool on the balcony that almost feels like an in-room plunge pool as it is only separated from the inside by a transparent wall.
Besides hotel rooms, there are also condos for sale which have similar private plunge pools.
To us, Cacao Tulum is one of the top Tulum hotels with private plunge pools, hands down.

Another one of the top and most popular Tulum resorts with private pools is Papaya Playa Project. The PPP is also one of the oldest hotels in Tulum.

Papaya Playa Project is one of the first Tulum hotels with private pools on the rooftops of their cabanas. You may have seen the famous drone photos.

Best Hotel Pools In Tulum
Best Infinity Pool In Tulum Beach:
Shambala Petit Hotel
Shambala Petit is not a hotel with a private pool in Tulum, but we feel it is still worth mentioning since in our opinion it is the best pool in Tulum Beach.
Best Tulum Infinity Pool At The Beach
The pool is an infinity pool with a palm tree in the middle. How cool is that??? This is by far the best infinity pool at Tulum Beach.
Semi Private Pool In Tulum
Even though it is not a private pool, the pool by the beach kind of was a private pool for us during our entire stay in Tulum.
Shambala Petit is a small boutique hotel with only a handful of rooms, so the infinity pool is only shared with a few other people, and lucky us we always had it to ourselves.

Best Rooftop Pool In Tulum:
Cacao Tulum Rooftop Pool
Best Tulum Rooftop Pool
On top of the probably most unique plunge pool in Tulum, Cacao Hotel features a rooftop pool with the same concept. This incredible Tulum rooftop pool has a glass wall on the front side of the hotel. You gotta see it yourself, it’s pretty cool!
The rooftop pool also has this round glass bottom that you can look up to from below when entering the reception area of the hotel.
Cacao Hotel has definitely the best Tulum rooftop pool we have seen!
We enjoyed staying at Cacao Tulum. The unique private spa pool and the incredible rooftop pool are one of a kind in Tulum.
Most Unique Beach Club In Tulum With Pool:
Vagalume Tulum Beach Club
Vagalume is the most extraordinary Tulum beach club with pool. A bridge held up by two giant hands crosses the beachfront pool which makes this the most unique beach club pool in Tulum in our opinion.
Longest Swimming Pools In Tulum:
White Luxury Condos Tulum Lap Pool
Since Felipe is a triathlete we are always on the hunt for lap pools when on vacation so he can continue his swimming practice.
With a lot of research we found the longest pools in Tulum that actually serve as lap pools as well.

Travel Insurance For Your Tulum Vacation
Besides looking for the best pools in Tulum it is a good idea to also look into travel insurance for your trip to Tulum.
This is something really important to think about! Whenever we travel abroad we always get travel insurance in case something happens. Not just because Germans (Julia) love to have insurance for everything! 😉
Of course, we are hoping for the best, and in the vast majority of cases, we will be just fine. But when something actually happens, like we get sick or have an accident, etc., we are going to be more than glad that we are covered.
In addition, travel insurances can also include things like reimbursements for lost or stolen luggage, trip cancellations/ interruptions and the like which can come in handy.
A popular insurance among travelers is World Nomads. We like that on their website you can super easily find out how much the travel insurance for your particular trip will cost and which benefits are included.
Check it out if you don’t have travel insurance yet and are looking to get one.
