Cabañas La Luna Tulum, Restaurant Las Estrellas
What if you could wash ashore on a beautiful tropical island with a group of friends and build yourself a cozy little settlement of colourful decorated, wooden houses right there on the beach? What if a local Mama would prepare lunches and dinners with local ingredients fresh from the sea and the gardens, serving it in the little village square? What if you could create your own electricity and water supply and be completely self-sufficient? Wouldn’t that be a fairy tale come true?
We thought so, and so we bought a piece of beautiful beach land in Tulum, Mexico and created our dream. It is this dream that we want to share with you. Our own little magical island of authenticity, La Luna. La Luna is build like a tiny little village: Private, elegant, warm and friendly with a nice central gathering place where you can enjoy our local fresh dishes with our other guests.
Feel like Robinson Crusoe, Christopher Columbus or Captain Dale on a tropical shore with everything you need to feel the magic of life: fresh air, blue skies, turquoise water, fresh local dishes, friendly people and a lot of sun.
La Luna is located on a beautiful stretch of more than 50 meters (165 feet) of beach frontage and well over an acre in size. Accommodations consist of 8 very special & romantic cabanas, 5 situated right on the beach with a unique view of the beautiful blue ocean, 2 in the lush La Luna gardens of which the penthouse has an incredible view of the jungle and the sunset, an ocean view room named after the world traveler Marco Polo and a beautiful 4-bedroom villa with large private pool in the lush La Luna gardens. The names reflect the very different, unique style and atmosphere of each of these cabañas. All cabañas were built and decorated in 2007, the private Villa with pool, the jungle view penthouse and the garden suite were added in 2009.

The concept for our restaurant Las Estrellas is simple: Blending fresh local ingredients with worldwide ideas to create innovative dishes. The beautiful setting of the restaurant reminds of places somewhere in the Middle East, but it stays in the same time truly Mexican.
During the day, guests at Las Estrellas can enjoy the beautiful clear view of the Mexican Caribbean while savoring a light, fresh lunch. You can order freshly made ceviche with a touch of ginger or one of the many typical Mayan dishes we serve. While the restaurant is on the same property as our hotel, Cabanas La Luna, it stays quite hidden, almost like a secret place still to be discovered. Our restaurant surroundings are very tropical, gives you not only views on the ocean, but also of our plush gardens. Experience Las Estrellas at night and watch us transform into a beautifully lit up Arab fairytale.
Once you are inside you will clearly feel the Middle Eastern influences and feel as though you are beneath the glistening stars. There is a warm and welcoming feel to Las Estrellas, so take a seat on our big sofa and relax, enjoying the evening while our staff serves you dishes made with couscous or traditional Moroccan Tajines. Every evening our chefs create three or four special dishes in addition to what we serve on the regular menu. Our fresh catch of the day is always a big hit. With so many ways to be served, our chefs can come up with something that won’t disappoint.
The staff at Las Estrellas understand the need for special requests, so please do not hesitate to ask our staff if a dish or one of our menu items can be modified to accommodate your dietary needs. We are very flexible in helping you, and always want our guests to leave with a satisfied appetite and smile on their face. Our kitchen staff is well trained and almost all dishes can be altered.
Las Estrellas is also child friendly restaurant and so on our menu you will find a little kids corner. For our smallest guests, we have highchairs available upon request. We would love to welcome you into our dream and enjoy this beautiful place together. We are open daily from 7am till 9:30pm, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. (Creditcards are accepted in the restaurant).
this has been a dream of yours, then you are in the right place. Here at La Luna, we specialize in intimate weddings on the beachfront of our eco-friendly cabañas hotel that would make any Bride and Groom’s dreams come true. Although our property sleeps 43 guests, for the wedding itself we can accommodate a maximum of 60 guests.
Tulum is an excellent choice for the location of your destination wedding in the Caribbean as it is located approximately 80 miles outside of Cancun, tucked away in a sweet haven of its own. Beautifully romantic, the picturesque beaches of Tulum at La Luna make the perfect setting day or night, to celebrate and honor the true meaning of your love.
If you can dream it, we can make it a reality.
Forget the stresses of everyday life and enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Treat yourself to a one of a kind massage by Edna, a local Mayan masseuse who has been with us at La Luna since we first opened our doors.
Edna has the amazing gift of touch. Although she hardly speaks English, Edna can read your body’s needs, simply through placing her hands on your body.
Where you wish to receive your massage is entirely your choice: our dune palapa hut, the porch of your room or right on the beach, it doesn’t matter. Our goal is to make you happy and satisfy your needs. Here at La Luna, it is the happiness and satisfaction of our guests that matter most.
