Amenities & Services at Candela
Fostering a Sense of Community
While the most compelling aspect of life at Candela is the pristine natural surroundings, it is the lifestyle in totality that truly makes the community unlike any other offering in Tulum. Rooted in a mission to improve quality of life for residents, even when not present in Tulum, Candela has designed amenities and services to support holistic health, focusing on an integrative approach that nourishes each aspect of one’s well-being—physical, emotional, intellectual, environmental, spiritual and social. From thoughtfully designed central spaces to each carefully curated experience, Candela presents a comprehensive living experience that inspires and elevates daily life, both in Tulum as well as around the world.
Reminiscent of an ancient Mayan settlement, villas surround a central, modern arboretum, a botanical garden-like setting beneath the shade of the jungle trees at the heart of Candela. Designed for intimate gatherings and grand festivities, The 13,000 sq. ft. Arboretum provides a source of restoration, connection and engagement. Here, slow mornings lead to long, casual afternoons that heat up as the sun sets and the jungle comes alive. Secluded walking paths, communal fire pits, observation zones and casual lounge areas are anchored by El Santuario, a temple-like structure that hosts yoga classes and gatherings, making the destination an integral part of everyday life at Candela.
A Holistic Wellness Program
Haumn, a full-service wellness consultancy, has created an exclusive holistic wellness program at Candela that features unified services, experiences and activations to proactively support well-being. Residents can take an active role in events like yoga classes, guided meditation, chef’s dinners and nightly rituals, or enjoy more passive elements, such as morning coffee and tea produced locally with organic, natural ingredients. La Cocina—a destination providing unique gastronomical experiences—acts as the backdrop, most notably for Sobremesa, an evening celebration that inspires conversation and connection. Stretching outside the natural-stone walls of Candela, the program also provides the chance to experience Tulum in a meaningful, inspiring way that aligns with the holistic ecosystem established at Candela.
