TULUM, MEXICO — Through a collaboration with Colibri Boutique Hotels, world-renowned Copenhagen restaurant Noma will take up residency under the canopy of the jungle adjacent to the Colibri boutique hotel La Zebra, in Tulum, on the Mexican Riviera, it was announced Dec. 6.
From April 12, 2017 through May 28, 2017, the Noma Mexico pop-up – the latest from the Noma team after similar residencies in Tokyo and Sydney – will see René Redzepi reunite with friend and former sous-chef Rosio Sanchéz (Hija de Sanchez) to develop a menu using only local and indigenous Mexican ingredients.
Working with Sanchez and a small group of international chefs, the noma team has begun to develop ideas for its Noma Mexico residency, traveling across the country in search of inspiration, flavors and preparations.
Noma Mexico will be situated outdoors between the Caribbean Sea and the jungle steps away from La Zebra hotel.
Newly inducted into Small Luxury Hotels, Colibri Boutique Hotels consists of five properties in Tulum, Mexico and Little Corn Island, Nicaragua. Designed for eco-chic relaxation, the collection includes both all-adult properties and properties suitable for individuals, couples and families.
Set on Tulum’s Caribbean beach, La Zebra is a family-friendly, all-suite resort. Noma Mexico at La Zebra joins the popular pop-up bar from New York City’s artisanal Mulberry Project, launched this month, and the chef’s table by Eleazar Bonilla. Fifteen new accommodations will open this year, bringing the total to 29 suites, including a new massage room. A pool and lounge area above the restaurant is planned for 2017.
