Guest access
Welcome to TAO!

Did I forget to mention that all this is included in your rent? Well, IT IS!
For an additional cost, there are scooter rentals, spa treatments, sweat lodge, also known as the “Temazcal” plus other activities. You can purchase any of these and ask for the weekly Yoga schedule directly at the Wellness Center front desk. An onsite Bistro is available for you, serving breakfast and lunch at very convenient prices.

But wait a minute… Due to our privileged location, you also have FREE Access to two of the Bahia Principe Resorts! Bahia Principe Sian Ka’an (adults only) and Bahia Principe Tulum (Family style) including beaches, pools and entertainment featuring:

•2 Beach clubs
•7 Pools
•9 Restaurants ($)
•12 snack bars ($)
•Sports' courts
•Miniclub (ages 4 to 12) from 9am to 5pm
•Casino
•Night shows at the mentioned resorts.

Also, you will have SPECIAL RATES on all-inclusive passes with all you can eat plus all you can drink! Kids 2-11 are half price, kids under 2 years of age are free. You also have other meal options as: snacks, individual buffet meals, and drinks at GBP Tulum & GBP Sian Ka’an (Sian Kaan is adults only). Please pre-purchase at the Front Desk at the GBP Golf Club House to get your ticket of consumption so you can go to the Resort and enjoy a great meal.

TAO Inspired Living guests have the Riviera Maya Golf Course right at their doorstep, so you also have SPECIAL RATES for this magnificent 27 holes, surrounded by beautiful natural lakes and water holes.

All these for staying with us! If this is not enough, TAO Beach Club Jungle Fish is waiting for you. It is located outside Bahia Principe Complex (5 minutes driving from the property). There you can find good meal options, bar and a relaxing atmosphere. The admission fee is $300 Mexican pesos, but don’t worry, they are applied as a credit on your consumption bill.

Other things to note
It is important to note we are located opposite side of the beach in a jungle setting-across the highway- within the Gates of the Bahia Principe Resort and as mentioned, you will have free access to two of the resorts’ beaches, pools, and entertainment (food and drinks not included). It is a short drive to go to these resorts, about 3 to 5 minutes to get to GBP Sian Ka’an and cross the private bridge over the highway to get to GBP Tulum and the beach area. Is nothing complicated but worth mentioning.
Even when we offer access to Resorts, TAO is not a resort but a Wellness community full of peace and nature.
We recommend you stop at a market on your way to TAO as there are no supermarkets inside the community and get all the need for your holidays including toiletries and laundry soap.
And just as a recommendation, tap water is good for brushing your teeth, do the laundry and wash your dishes but, please don’t drink it. We are always taking good care of our guests so you will have a bottle of water (20 lts) waiting for you at no cost to welcome you.
We strongly recommend you rent a car while staying with us so you can fully enjoy everything the area has to offer between beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, cenotes, natural parks, protected areas, and lagoons. There is so much to see and do! A car is also helpful to visit the Bahia Principe Resort at your own times.
