The Space 

Created by Daniella Hunter, The Real Coconut's philosophy of eating is a regime for sustainable living, both personally and for the planet.

'Every dish is designed to nourish and support the body and soul down to a cellular level' says Daniella.  The Real Coconut prides itself on developing plates for the curative conscience. 

Inspired by the versatile sustenance of the coconut, the inaugural Real Coconut restaurant opened in 2015 inside Sanara Tulum hotel on the pristine beaches of the Riviera Maya.  Pioneering an unprecedented and unique menu, comprised of energy-boosting plates to help optimize health, Daniella introduces recipes such as Coconut Cheese and Coconut Tortillas, to make The Real Coconut Quesadillas. 

The Real Coconut is a life-changing menu, created to provide luscious edibles and refreshments that are pure in design and a remarkable enhancement to vital living.

An authentic manifestation of her own individual tastes and health philosophy, The Real Coconut is an aesthetic of Daniella herself.

Having followed her own journey of healing from severe asthma as a child, and a lifetime of poor health, Daniella delved deep into many different diet and cleanse programs to seek the answers to a vital life, both for herself and to share with others. Left less than satisfied she formulated her very own ideology.  The outcome is...flawless.

A progressive maverick in the holistic community, the ever so poised natural health & lifestyle tastemaker embodies the very core of her conscious living brands, as founder and owner of The Real Coconut, and co-founder and Creative Director of Sanara Hotels.  

The loving mother of two also dedicates her free time to supporting the development of Tulum International School, a passion and inquiry-based private school project in Tulum introducing an academic philosophy of global awareness and care for the planet.  On a personal note she has a deep passion for sustainable living, all things coconut, and the care of injured or abandoned wildlife.
