One of the city’s newest and most stylish hotels, the St. Regis is so much more than your typical business hotel. A combination of slick, contemporary design, and well-thought-out amenities, all the while making nods to Mexican culture and history in the form of local sculptures or pre-Colombian art. The hotel’s skyscraper structure gives it phenomenal views over this blinking, restless city from its rooms, gym, bar terrace and fantastic swimming pool. There is a healthy range of room categories from the deluxe to the Astor and St Regis Suites, all decorated in chic shades of purple, silver and green, and the service is impeccable. The Diana Restaurant specialises in delicious contemporary Mexican cuisine and the King Cole bar has a sleek, youthful vibe with a wonderful mural by Pablo-Weisz-Carrington. What’s more the hotel is in the city’s Zona Rosa on the grand Paseo de la Reforma avenue, a few minutes from the genteel Polanco and Condesa districts, with lots of superb restaurants, shops and the Anthropology Museum close by.

Benefitting from a perfect location in the city’s refined Polanco district, this stylishly discreet boutique hotel is one of the city’s best for contemporary design, personalised hospitality and attention to service. An elegant yet sober décor of grey tones mixed in with various oriental influences and design-led pieces, such as its main seven-floor-scaling spiral staircase, Las Alcobas delivers its in-house spa, complimentary mini-bar, room service, state of the art in-room amenities and restaurant (headed by the award-winning chef, Martha Ortiz) with exactly the modern panache and efficiency as it makes out. Furthermore whether you are in the city for just a night or couple days, just outside the foyer is some of the best shopping boutiques, artisan stores, restaurants and the designer shops of the Masaryk Avenue.
Enjoy time in this bustling and cosmopolitan capital which has a fabulous selection of museums and art galleries for you to visit. Mexico City is also home to a great selection of bars and restaurants, where you will be able to rub shoulders with the locals and taste some of the finest local cuisine.
Enjoy a private tour of the incredible Aztec Teotihuacan ruins and Guadalupe Shrine, a true introduction to Mexico’s rich heritage and culture. Mesoamerican pyramids are an important part of ancient Mesoamerican architecture and are a fascinating site to see. During the tour your private guide will brief you on the fascinating history of the Aztecs who dominated central Mexico in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries.
Explore the beautiful city of Puebla on a full-day tour. With its old town a designated UNESCO world heritage site, your guide will bring to life this historical district and places like the Rosary Chapel and Teatro Principal. This is also the city where the Mole Poblano originated (a thick, spicy sauce that is almost more quintessentially Mexican than any other dish), and where you might be entrusted with its complex recipe during a cooking class.

Contained within the typical façade of two colonial mansions, the decor reflects a different era if not a fusion of both, renovated to today’s standards and in a design-led style. The rooms are colourful, simple and urban with a clever blend of textures and amenities to hand (flat screen TVs, iPod docks, WiFi and L’Occitane bath products). Incorporating rose oil and cacao into much of the products used in its excellent Spa, a central courtyard swimming pool, gourmet chocolate shop and partnered with a good beach club, if you fancy a day at the coast, Rosas is a surprisingly original option for your stay in Merida.

It’s also within easy reach of both the city and beach too. Its cavernous eighteen rooms are very spacious, as are its ample patios, surrounding tropical gardens and pool area. Decorated in the rural hacienda style of the affluent Old World, heavy and dark handmade furniture, gilt frames, tall shutters, intricate tiled floors and stone pillared archways are prominent, successfully transporting you back to this magnificent era. The staff are immensely helpful and warm, the spa is well-equipped with a large menu of treatments and the atmosphere is delightfully peaceful.

This hotels scores points for both its location, being positioned right in Merida’s UNESCO-protected old quarter, and its elegantly stylish Old World décor. Housed in a 19th-century colonial mansion and reflecting all the opulence employed in the furnishings by that era’s sisal barons, Casa Lecanda is nothing short of stepping into a period that so shaped this city, and its ample patios and courtyards provide a wonderfully spacious sanctuary in this closely packed neighborhood. Its seven rooms have been fitted with the modern amenities yet keep hold of the mansion’s original style of hospitality. The staff are warm and welcoming, and there’s a fantastic choice of local to more regional activities to choose from.
Enjoy time in Merida, seen as the capital of Yucatan Peninsula, where a lot of its economic and cultural activities take place, not to mention being the most sophisticated base from which to explore all the ruins along the Puuc route.

A beautifully preserved and bright red belle époque hacienda emerging from the vivid green jungle, Temozon is one of the most authentically inspirational places to stay in the whole of the Yucatan. Once one of the largest estates producing sisal, the hotel enjoys a roomy 36 hectares of peaceful grounds strewn with vibrant flowers, organic kitchen gardens, cenotes (one housing the hotel’s spa), swimming pool, tennis courts and some Mayan archaeological remains, all about 40 minutes outside of Merida. Again remaining true to the original architecture and style of ranch life, there is even a gallery exhibiting photographs of the hacienda over the years and the spacious and fairly sparse rooms possess original Hispanic and Indian antiques, sisal hammocks, handmade cotton textiles and woolen throws. The food from the restaurant is delicious, where many of its regional and international dishes have been created from the organic produce grown in the gardens. The chef will teach you how to make Cochinita Pibil (pulled-pork stew) if you like and many of the staff have worked there their entire lives and know the area well. What’s more there is the most fantastic spa housed in a natural cenote (bore hole).

This is a wonderfully vibrant property that overflows with regional Yucatan character and history. Previously a nobleman’s private estate, it has since been carefully renovated into a luxury boutique hotel of just eleven rooms. Twisted tropical trees and manicured lawns sit around undulating sky blue columns with arches framing its traditional patios, which are filled with antique furniture and door frames that lead into the main areas and guest rooms. These are all decorated with both contemporary and period touches including exposed beams and iron bedsteads. Modern amenities such as complimentary WiFi access, cable TV and iPod docking stations will ensure your stay here is still connected to present times. One of the hotel’s best assets is its restaurant which is excellent, and serves a fusion of local and international cuisines, best enjoyed al fresco either on the cosy patio or the elegant terrace. A creative outdoor pool incorporates part of the property so you can swim in between its columns and arches. There is a relaxing and stylish Lounge Bar, beautiful botanical gardens and grounds around which to stroll (or take one of the hotel’s bicycles and explore it that way), and there are massages on offer too.
Take time to relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings of the Merida countryside.
