Otro Oaxaca is a boutique hotel in Oaxaca that has a prime location right across from the Church of Santo Domingo in the city center. Behind the hotel’s historic façade, find a contemporary design that nods to colonial and ancient cultures.

The layout features tranquil courtyards and a cross-shaped walkway at its heart, inspired by the Mesoamerican religious center of Mitla. Materials pay homage to Santo Domingo Church and the textures of traditional Oaxacan architecture, blending brick walls, limestone, reclaimed wood and raw concrete.

Curated interiors showcase the diversity of skilled craftmanship the region is celebrated for, from linens and furniture to earthy ceramic tableware. Full of surprises, Otro Oaxaca boasts a rooftop pool and mezcal bar overlooking the church domes, the “bunker” cultural space, and the sub-level Otro Mundo spa, complete with a heated plunge pool that’s naturally illuminated by a porthole overhead.

Sixteen king guest room take a minimalist approach, creating comforting and serene resting spaces. Some boast added luxuries like rain showers, Bluetooth speakers, sitting areas, and soaking tubs. The property’s restaurant creates signature dishes made with local ingredients, served on the lower patio under shady trees or up on the rooftop’s long communal table.
