Retail, art and dining options have been “popping” into temporary existence all around the world, and Design Hotels has joined the trend. From Dec. 6-May 5, the Papaya Playa Project by Design Hotels will be home to 99 rustic cabanas over a stretch of Caribbean coastline in Tulum, Mexico.
“Our idea was to create a transitory, yet culturally rooted experience,” says Claus Sendlinger, founder and CEO of Design Hotels. “A playful communal concept is at the fore here—whether it’s spontaneous creativity at the amphitheater, beach jam sessions or inviting innovative companies to explore the ultimate green workspace.”
The pop-up camp features the food, music, design and wellness concepts of the area, while focusing on the intangible qualities like the sense of community, connection and belonging, personality and vision.
Rates range from $25 to $625. For more information, visit papayaplayaproject.com.
