Hacienda Xcanatun is a 18th Century ”henequén” mansion near Merida that has been transformed into boutique hotel. The fact that it only has 18 Suites in no way makes it ‘small’. With 3 acres of exotic gardens, two swimming pools and grand marble terraces, this historic hotel can easily put commercialized 5-star hotels out of the game.
Here colonial-style architecture meets deluxe amenities and old-world hospitality. The Master Suites boast large sitting rooms, beautiful king-size beds, antiques and oversized bathrooms, featuring Jacuzzi tubs and a waterfall (#103 and #104). It’s like having a spa treatment, available to you 24/7!
All suites are air-conditioned and many come with a mini-bar, private verandahs overlooking tropical gardens or patios with an exterior Jacuzzi – the ultimate remedy for soaking tension away. The Master Suites, Deluxe Suites and Superior Rooms are either furnished with a king-size bed or two double canopy beds, making them an ideal choice for romantic couples, honeymooners and friends who want to get-away-from-it-all.
Hacienda Xcanatun’s unique ”Casa de Piedra” restaurant is a favorite of guests and locals alike (which is the best compliment for chef).
Enjoy a complimentary breakfast in the beautiful dining room with its soaring high ceiling. Stay for dinner and prepare yourself mentally to feast like landlords once feasted, hacienda-style. We suggest you start with the Fresh Caribbean Ceviche with Habanero followed by Duck with a Xtabentun glaze. It’s sooooo good, you won’t want to eat anywhere else.
What you want to do, however, is immerse yourself in the rich history and natural beauty of this part of Mexico. The historic side of Hacienda Xcanatun is only a small preview of the many treasures of the Yucatan region. Just a short drive away you’ll find Merida – the oldest colonial city in the Yucatan – with its multiple museums and art galeries.
Hacienda Xcanatun also serves as a strategic starting point for exploring Chichen Itza and Uxmal ruins, visit the massive convent at Izamal or drive west to the “Emeral Coast” and visit the towns of Celestun, Progreso and San Felipe.
If you’ve been to Mexico before or want to explore off-the-beaten track destinations, leaving busy Cancun behind, it makes sense to explore Yucatan and book a suite at Hacienda Xcanatun hotel!
