While shacking up at a beachfront resort in Tulum is a no-brainer, we're making an exception for Gardenias Inn Tulum. This downtown boutique (just one block from the main drag) will serve a plateful of culinary awesome in Riviera Maya's most bohemian-minded, yoga-centric, beach-bum paradise--a place not particularly known as a gastronomic destination. But you'll have to wait until mid-December to see for yourself.

The three-room hotel theoretically works as a fancy B&B (it's that "home-y") yet it still stands as a super intimate hotel. Foodies and non-foodies alike will surely fall for it, but make no mistake, Gardenias Inn is all about food. And good food, mind you. Owner Francois is a James Beard scholar, veteran of Philly's Chanterelle and has worked amongst chefs like George Perrier and Jean Marie Lacroix. She will feed well-heeled guests with eclectic global flavors (obviously with a French twist) like foie gras mousse with fresh fruit chutney. And if you hanker for local chow, the in can arrange gastronomic day trips to Merida to sample authentic Mayan regional cooking.
