Merida, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
Hacienda San Jose
  • Rescued from ruin and sensitively resorted plantation house set within lush jungle in the heart of the Yucatan near Merida

  • Perfect place to relax after visits to the magnificent Maya sites of Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Dzibichaltun and the 'yellow city' of Izamal

  • An impressive swimming pool nestles beside a 100-year old orchard

  • Authentic Mexico at its best - stunning décor in the traditional Maya style with original high ceilings and tiled floors

Hacienda San Jose, a former grand nobleman's estate, is located 45 minutes from the Yucatan's capital Merida. This gem of a hotel has been restored in a colonial style with stunning pastel blue facades and landscaped gardens.

The 15 rooms have been furnished in a stylish manner evoking the splendour of past eras. Their high ceilings give a spacious feel and their design is an interesting combination of contemporary and traditional styles. The dark, tropical hardwoods of beds and cabinets compliment exposed beams and rafters giving an authentic Mayan ambience.

There is a magnificent swimming pool surrounded by groves of fruit trees and a spa with local Mayan therapists offering traditional healing practices of the Yucatan peninsula to help restore mind, body and soul. At night the stone walls and majestic archways surrounding the hotel’s gourmet restaurant are floodlit to create an intimate dining atmosphere. Here one can enjoy a mouth watering mixture of Mexican and European flavours with many of the ingredients sourced from the haciendas gardens.

Explore the surrounding landscape on horseback or why not visit some of the region's greatest treasures which are within easy reach including the ruins at Uxmal and Chichen Itza and the colonial gem of Izamal.
