Paradise in the city. Imagine a place only 12 km from Mérida Centro, where you will find delicious, world renowned gastronomy and unique accommodation, all in a one-of-a-kind setting. It’s also the perfect place to focus on wellness and spoil yourself. Would you like to know more?
After five years of reconstruction, in January 2000 the exclusive hotel Hacienda Xcanatún opened its doors, offering 18 rooms decorated with a mixture of antiques and colonial style furniture. The hotel also has the “Casa de Piedra” restaurant, recognized internationally for its quality since the day it opened.
This yea, the hotel is reinventing its wellness concept with the reopening of their spa. The whole spa menu has “Signature Experiences,” meaning that each treatment will be branded with the quality that Hacienda Xcanatún is known for. Among the services you will find a blend of Maya herbalism with procedures of the highest standards, bringing all of your senses alive. While you receive your treatment you will be surrounded by the sounds of nature, listening to the regional birds singing from the lovely hacienda gardens, adding one more layer to your complete relaxation.
Now you know why Hacienda Xcanatún has been recognized with so many awards; among the most recent was being named member of the “Historic Hotels Worldwide.” This prize is only for hotels with a historic background. And if the walls of the hacienda could talk, they would tell us centuries of the history of the state of Yucatán. Built in the 18th century, it was one of the most important henequén producers during the famous “Green Gold” era, with the added advantage of its proximity to the train rails that went directly to the port of Progreso.
The perfect blend in this magical place combines history, tradition, and, of course, contemporary style. Something that makes the difference at Hacienda Xcanatún is the personal attention that you will receive from the owners, who you will be able to see at different moments during your stay at the hotel. Don’t hesitate to approach them and ask them about the hacienda’s history. And in case you were wondering, “Xcanatún” means “tall stone house” in Maya.
So now you know, it doesn’t matter if you decide to stay, dine in the restaurant, or pamper yourself at the spa, or maybe all three: you will have a one-of-a-kind experience. And by the way, if you are thinking about getting married in Yucatán, you could have your destination wedding in the lovely gardens at Hacienda Xcanatún.
