Villa Merida

Merida, Mexico

Prices From: $235 - $300

This restored and exquisitely appointed seven-room, 19th-century nobleman's mansion, is located five blocks from Barrio de Santiago, one of the most historic sites in the colonial sector of Merida. Constructed around spaciously-arched terazas, tropical gardens, cooling fountains and majestic pool, this hacienda urbana has been meticulously restored, preserving much of the original Spanish colonial design.

Enveloping the grandeur of the past with the luxuriousness of modern comfort, our guest rooms transmit the ambience of a colonial mansion with original contemporary artwork and locally crafted furniture and d├ęcor, while providing the guest with attention to detail in the well-appointed amenities.

There are four courtyard rooms and three garden rooms. All the courtyard rooms have a king bed, three of which can accommodate a rollaway bed should you be traveling with children. Two of the garden rooms have a king bed while the third garden room has 2 queen beds which can accommodate a rollaway bed. Two of the garden rooms are located on an upper teraza, and ideal if reserved for 2 couples or a family, because they host a king room and a double queen room, and because of their added privacy.

Every room has been luxuriously appointed with handmade furniture and decor by local craftsmen, and uses only the highest quality, imported bathroom and bedding linens.

The bathroom amenities are made by a locally-owned and operated company called Yucatan Herbal which uses naturally occurring local products such as honey and aloe to produce a totally natural, non-toxic line of bathroom products.

Nestled in the heart of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, this urban oasis offers the discerning traveler a unique and memorable experience.
