A sweeping driveway entrance dramatically delivers you to the coral colored Hacienda Temozon, another majestic Hacienda in the middle of the Yucatan which is also part of the Starwood Luxury Collection.
Hacienda Temozon is bigger than San Jose with twenty eight rooms, all restored with impeccable taste reflecting the era when it was once a sisal factory ( think 18-foot ceilings with exposed beams and rafters), this was the golden age of the Yucatan Peninsula when the region was built on the back of this sisal fortune. You get to see to the legacy of the wealth created in the architecture and grandeur of the houses on the Parisian like Boulevard, Paseo de Montejo when you visit nearby Merida.
What’s not to love about this place.? Massages on arrival, stunningly restored, authentic accommodation, a long sweeping terrace to enjoy afternoon drinks with views across the lush gardens, a restaurant serving authentic local cuisine and the piece de resistance – a stunning swimming pool with spa to match. It’s colonial Mexican luxury at its best.
I even took a donkey ride to their very own cenote where you can swim, dine and enjoy massages in total privacy. Cenotes are officially – surface connections to subterranean water bodies, natural wonders of the Yucatan formed from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath, with incredibly clear water. Stunning to swim and dive, there are many cenotes scattered around the Yucatan peninsula and through Mexico Riche we can arrange access to the very best private cenotes.
Cesar the manager is very hands on in a relaxed and professional way and his personality is a warm addition to the experience at Hacienda Temozon, in fact the entire Temozon team made Nettie and I feel right at home, you want a private dinner in the garden? Say no more … it’s yours!
A Hacienda experience is not to be missed, I suggest a night at both Hacienda Temozon and Hacienda San Jose or there are many others dotted around the Yucatan peninsula to choose from in our Mexico Riche collection.
Next stop … Merida!
