Description

Hacienda de San Antonio is one of Mexico's best kept secrets and is a stunning country house dating back to 1879. Formerly owned by billionaire Sir James Goldsmith, this authentic plantation estate has 25 spacious suites featuring large bathrooms, vaulted brick ceilings, fireplaces and French-style doors, which open out onto terraces or balconies with breathtaking views. Enjoy the delicious international and Mexican cuisine prepared by the French chef David Ferre with organic dairy, meats, fruits, vegetables, coffee and other locally produced products.

Each individually decorated suite is oozing with history and culture in its decor and artifacts. Organic and local food is served in a venue to suit your preference and the service at the hotel is impeccable with your every need catered for.

The extensive grounds of the hacienda boast a stunning garden scattered with fig trees and blue agave, the plant used to make tequila, all watered by a working aqueduct. The hotel offers various activities such as hiking trips to the nearby volcano, horse riding, mountain biking and tours of the local coffee plantation and cheese factories. To relax at the end of the day why not enjoy a massage on the terrace or take advantage of the spa treatment room. Hacienda de San Antonio's sister hotel is the fabulous Cuixmala on the Pacific Coast.
