Chablé Spa Resort in Yucatan is a lovely example of the blend of ancient hacienda architecture and modern resort touches, the best of the old and new worlds. Located about 25 minutes from the city of Merida, it offers guests a luxurious escape surrounded by nature and history.
Chablé’s 38 spacious stand-alone pool villas and two expansive 3-bedroom presidential estates are nestled within lush gardens. Modern touches incorporated with Maya architecture, warm woods and original 19th century walls of the working hacienda are what make Chablé a work of art. The bedroom casitas are 1,700 square feet and feature a king bed or two queens with an outdoor living area and private pool.
The spa will pamper guests with a variety of services including massages, body treatments and facials. The private cenote is like a little Eden in Yucatan, fresh cool waters with floating lily pads and resident catfish, a perfect place for meditation and reflection.
The spa features nine treatment rooms, a steam room, a sauna, a salt cabin and a floatarium. In addition, the facility offers guests warm and cold whirlpools, a water circuit with varying types of shower pressures, a relaxation area and a pool. Guests will also enjoy access to the library, yoga/meditation room and a juice and snack bar. A garden kitchen is available for guests interested in learning about and preparing their own aromatherapy.
The resort also offers several activities for the more adventurous spirits, an extended bike trail, tennis courts, fully-equipped gym, archery, geocaching and yoga will keep active guests busy. As night falls, the stars come out and guests are invited to discover the planets and galaxies through a powerful telescope in the garden.
Chablé’s culinary program is another of its crowning achievements, for foodies and cocktail aficionados, the resort is a destination in itself. Headed by acclaimed Chef Jorge Vallejo (the force behind Mexico City’s Quintonil), the restaurants feature organic, seasonal fare and local produce—much of which is grown from the on-site garden.
The fine dining restaurant, Ixi’Im, elevates farm-to-table cuisine to a sophisticated level that will impress even the pickiest of gourmands. There, dishes like octopus in squid ink and venison tartare are complemented by sensational wine, and tequila fiends will rejoice at the hotel’s collection of over 3,000 unique bottles.
The grounds are perfect for garden weddings, the soaring ceiba trees and lush plants and flowers contrasting with the ancient structures of the hacienda create magical settings for romance. The gardens also provide the freshest of local produce, the chefs incorporating the harvest of fruits, vegetables and herbs into the cuisine.
Wine lovers will enjoy the onsite cellar and the expertise of the sommeliers with an extensive selection of local and international vintages and guests may indulge in tequila tastings in the El Signature restaurant tequila museum.
