Awakening is the first hotel of its kind to offer an experience dedicated to happiness and spiritual well-being. The concept combines a luxury resort with architecture inspired by the natural world's shapes and geometry. The resort's designers planned the location around themes of transformation and biomimicry, and the results are mind-blowing.

Located on the tip of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, the location could not be more perfect for achieving this goal. The future site rests near the Riviera Maya in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The region is also home to a wide variety of attractions, both natural and archaeological. In fact, the monumental Mayan sites of Tulum and Muyil are practically neighbors to the property. But you won't find any big condos or bustling markets nearby. This location is as close to perfectly pristine as you could imagine, while still providing world-class accommodations.

The resorts plans revolve around minimal human footprint on the environment. And the designs bring as much nature into the resort as possible. In practice, these designs would be perfectly at home in a fantasy or sci-fi movie. Calling the hotel rooms “rooms” would be a bit inaccurate. Lodging is actually based around a cocoon concept. Called a capullo, these spaces look like open-air flower buds. The cocoons stick to the resort's themes, with the goal of transformation in mind. As a result, these designs look like large plants emerging from the rainforests surrounding the hotel.

A Resort with Sacred Design

While the location appears to be right on the banks of a beach, it actually adjoins to a beautiful blue cenote. These are large turquoise openings that connect to larger underwater cave system and were specifically chosen for the resort's location. Because the ancient Mayans considered cenotes sacred, their properties appealed to the resort's developers. As supposed centers of energy and spiritual communication, the idea is to focus that energy for guests.

Designers created the entire resort with sustainability in mind. Cutting-edge technology makes sure the resort can coexist with nature without disturbing the jungle environment. All while working toward the goal of personal development. The creators envision a place where guests get a deeper experience from their vacation.

Although the hotel is still in its crowdfunding stage, it is getting close to the construction stage. If you are intrigued by the idea, donors get some great benefits. The best one of all is up to 80% of their first stay at this groundbreaking luxury resort!
