Rosas & Xocolate Design Hotel in Mérida, Mexico
Located in Mérida, the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatán, this all-natural getaway lies in the rich area where the Mayan civilization first discovered cocoa and offered it up to their gods.
With Rosas & Xocolate, hotel owner Carol Kolozs has breathed new life into the once glorious avenue of Paseo Montejo, now the cornerstone of the cultural capital’s rehabilitation. And to grand effect! It is quite impressive, after all, to be named “The Best Urban Hotel” in all of Mexico by Food & Travel Magazine, as Rosas & Xocolate was in 2015. But to win that same award two years in a row, as Rosas & Xocolate did, is all but unheard of. What’s more, this achievement was loudly confirmed when the prestigious culinary organization Canirac declared Rosas & Xocolate “The Best Hotel Restaurant in Mexico” in 2016.
Upping the romance factor, fresh-cut roses are placed liberally throughout the 17 rooms and suites, and chocolate-based spa treatments and sweet-smelling amenities abound while handcrafted chocolates are lovingly engineered in the boutique.
The hotel’s stylish use of local materials such as hand-fabricated cement tiles and chucum stucco allows guests of Rosas & Xocolate to fully experience Yucatán’s old-world charm together with the city’s contemporary spirit.BOOK NOW BOOK NOW BOOK NOW BOOK NOW BOOK NOW BOOK NOW BOOK NOW
