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.

Happy Customers

"Heck, I would fly back now from New York just for one quick meal- no exaggeration! That’s how insanely good it was. The restaurant is called “The Real Coconut,” and is a part of the lavish and stunning Sanará hotel." Hannah Ross-Crane - Huffington Post
“The restaurant was outstanding, every meal was better than the last and the service was great. I would have anyone try the avocado toast with a frappuccino smoothie and also the cesar salad with organic chicken.” 
Rzellig - Baltimore

“Best food at the Real Coconut- As a vegan, I was so happy to have so many options and also to not have to explain myself. My server was vegan and totally understood my needs. It was refreshing to not have to go into lengthy explanations like I was used to doing in Mexico. The menu is very vegan-friendly and all of my companions (none of whom were vegan) could not stop raving about all of the delicious non-meat food they were eating. Yes, food can be healthful *and* delicious!” Dlovvan - Philadelphia

“The Real Coconut, the hotel’s stunning restaurant. The vibe was warm, welcoming and relaxed. The food at the hotel is divine, home made, organic and largely vegan although organic meats, fish, chicken and eggs were available. A terrific smoothy and juice bar as well.” Elyssa A - New York City

“The dishes are EXQUISITE, perfect, I don’t even know how I can explain the magic in that food, the magic, perfection; all while eating healthy, soulful food with a breathtaking view as the restaurant sits right on the beach.” Moraketty, Paris
