Housing one of Mexico’s most acclaimed cookery schools and an eclectic mix of traditional rooms and suites between four buildings, the Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada provides a homely and charming base in the colonial town of San Miguel de Allende and reflects perfectly the colourful style of buildings which are present throughout the cobblestone streets.

The accommodation comprises 37 deluxe rooms and suites arranged amongst the main building and four colonial mansions dating back to the 16th century. Each room has a distinctive charm with beamed ceilings, warm Mexican tones and regional furnishings including contemporary art, antiques, exquisite fabrics and beautiful Talavera-tiled bathrooms. Suites have a fireplace, oversized bath with separate shower stall and a private terrace with plunge pool.

Cookery courses cover the different forms of Mexican cuisine, including traditional regional specialities and some of the more modern favourites, and are led by highly experienced in-house chefs with a real passion for the diverse local flavours and methods of cooking.

The hotel has two gourmet restaurants and a lovely patio bar overlooking the cobblestone streets, which provides a relaxed setting for pre-dinner cocktails. For pampering, the Laja Spa provides an array of invigorating beauty therapies including massage, facials, reflexology and body treatments.

Please note that the Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada does not accept children under 16 years of age.

Please also note that the rooms and suites at the hotel are divided amongst five different buildings and one of these, Casa Parque, is a approximately a five minute walk from the other four and the main hotel facilities. The hotel can arrange transport between Casa Parque and the other houses if required.
