Bikini bootcamp provides the perfect mix of exercise and relaxation. The classes are fun and challenging with instructors that have a real passion for what they do. The positive attitude of all of the staff is contagious. The beach is gorgeous and there is plenty of time for R&R. You can participate as much or as little as you like. Thank you Amansala. I'll be back!

I came to Tulum and Amansala first to stay for the BBC. It definately exceeded my expectations! And already having quite high expectations says it all. The group of bikini boot campers I was in were all amasing people, such a good mix of people, the Amansala resort is really nice. For me it felt like a "home away from home" for the two weeks I stayed there. The staff are all so nice and especially the front desk and trainers which I had most contact with are all really fantastic beautiful people :) They really makes you want to work out and do the most of your stay and also bring back everything you learned to continue to adventure to a better body and better balance in life. Melissa Perlman has really succeeded in making a resort for everyone! You will go home feeling as a better person from this experience. The meeting with the place itself is breathtaking! Add great food, people, staff, great activities and lifelong friendships and you have the most perfect holiday you could hope for. Maybe its not for everyone, but if what I have written appeals to you, then probably this is the place you should go. I travelled solo and it was not a problem at all. Met so many great people, some of that I will probably stay in touch with for a very long time. Everyone with different reasons for choosing Amansala and BBC as their destination. Enjoy! It will enrich your life and also the people around you :)

Room Tip: Book early, ask for a beachfront room if available.

I went to Amansala a few years back in October of 08. Recently single I thought I would try the solo travel thing. This place was a dream come true. From the location to the staff to the amazing fresh food. All of the classes were optional so you didnt feel pressured to partake, but it was well worth every cent. I met amazing women from all over the world. I had a roommate from singapore that wound up staying in tulum for a few years. This is one place I wish I never had to leave. If you require air conditioning this place is not for you. You dont need it being your rooms are litteraly on the beach. You get the beautiful breeze, but watch out for the mosquitos. Bring Deet!!!

I do not have time nor space to do this place justice and express just how wonderful it is there. I will definitely go back - most of the people there were repeat customers. The combination of fantastic food, exercise, massage and the most positive trainers and hotel staff you will ever meet means you leave this place feeling fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone, but particularly ladies travelling alone as there is a great sense of comradery.
