Bathroom of the Week: The Serene and Sculptural Coqui Coqui Bath

March 17, 2017

We’ve long admired the neutral serenity and slightly bohemian vibes of Coqui Coqui Residence & Spa in the Mayan village of Coba a short drive from Tulum (see Mexican Luxury: Coqui Coqui on the Yucatan Peninsula). Of particular interest: the sanctuary-like sculptural baths throughout the resort, from the spa to the guest rooms. Here’s a look.

The Coqui Coqui bath is neutral but textural: Moroccan plaster walls and floors, white porcelain sinks, and brass fixtures. In the spa bath, a sink basin sits atop a carved concrete pedestal, and a black soap dish adds a hint of noir.

The minimalist baths are seamlessly integrated into the wall; flat, extra-wide edges double as shelves. A vintage-style brass faucet adds warmth. For a similar look, see Trend Alert: 13 Sculptural Baths and Showers and 5 Favorites: Brass Hardware for the Bath.

The hand soaps, lotions, and fragrances are from Coqui Coqui’s own Perfumeria and evoke “the lush landscapes and lifestyle of the Yucatan.”
