HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
Rosas & Xocolate, named after the two most popular lovers’ gift items, is designed for guests who take romance seriously. Located in Merida, the capital of the state of Yucatan in Mexico, the all-natural boutique hotel lies in the rich area where long ago, the Mayan civilisation first discovered cocoa and offered it up to their gods.
Once made up of two colonial mansions, the haute-pueblo building was designed and restored by architect Salvador Reyes Rios and his partner Josefina Larrain. The duo perfectly melded the rustic elegance of the historic mansions with modern accoutrements, like state-of-the-art entertainment systems and dazzling open-sky bathtubs, for guests who desire the utmost in under-the-stars indulgence.
Upping the romance factor, fresh-cut roses have been placed liberally throughout the 17 rooms and suites, and chocolate-based spa treatments and sweet-smelling amenities were lovingly engineered by master chocolatier Mathieu Brees, who runs an in-hotel Belgian-Mexican fine chocolates boutique.
With its prime location on the prestigious Avenue Paseo Montejo and stylish use of local materials like hand-fabricated cement tiles and chucum stucco, guests to Rosas y Xocolate can fully experience the old-world charm of the Yucatan peninsula.
