Built in 1700, Hacienda Uayamon is located in the Yucatan Peninsula outside Campeche and boasts a kind of rustic modern luxury.
Framed around a huge Ceiba Tree, the most sacred tree of the Maya people, this hacienda boasts a kind of rustic chic, combining aging wall facades with modern luxury.
The brightly colored rooms are ample, with high, wood-beamed ceilings and tiled floors. Metal four-poster bed frames add to the colonial feel, along with dark-wood furniture and plush fabrics, while Egyptian cotton bedding and goose down pillows ensure unquestionable comfort. The bathrooms are large with double basins and a stone bathtub, big enough for two. Fresh, exotic flowers are scattered around the bathroom and left on your pillow each day for an extra touch of elegance.
The hotel’s rather ethereal looking pool is complete with old pillars that rise up from the water and old stone walls all around. Take a dip or lounge by the pool on the comfy sunbeds or swing above the water in a hammock. For extra relaxation, head to the spa, that focuses on using local ingredients, for the most unique and relaxing treatments. For those with lively imaginations, take a walk through the grounds that look like something out of the children’s classic, the Secret Garden.
The restaurant offers fresh, mostly organic regional faire, with bread freshly baked in the mornings and fish brought directly to the hacienda by local fishermen.
Remember that you are surrounded by nature, so you might find yourself sharing your luxury quarters with a bug or two.
