    Rooms 17 / Architecture Reyes Ríos + Larraín Arquitectos / Interior Design Reyes Ríos + Larraín Arquitectos / The Original Carol Kolozs

    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. Upping the romance factor, fresh-cut roses have been placed liberally throughout the 17 rooms and suites, in addition to chocolate-based spa treatments and sweet-smelling amenities lovingly engineered by master chocolatier Mathieu Brees, the force behind the hotel's own Belgian-Mexican fine chocolates 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.

    Rooms & Suites

    Throughout its 17 rooms, Rosas & Xocolate perfectly melds the rustic elegance of an historical baron's mansion with modern accoutrements and sensory delights. Each of the individually designed rooms boasts an open-air bathtub. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, Bose stereos, and espresso machines; three luxury suites in a private tower have spacious terraces. Lovingly engineered by master chocolatier Mathieu Brees, the chocolate love in the spas is also seen in the rooms with handmade chocolate soap, apart from L’Occitane amenities. For a fee, guests can spend a day at the hotel's nearby beach house (transportation, private chef, and massage included).

    Architecture

    A rustic elegance

    Reconstituted from two colonial mansions, Rosas & Xocolate won Architectural Digest's “Iconos del Diseño 2011” for the best architectural restoration in Mexico. The haute-pueblo building was designed and restored by architect Salvador Reyes Rios and his partner, Josefina Larrain. The couple perfectly melded the rustic elegance of the historic mansions with modern accoutrements, such as state-of-the-art entertainment systems and open-sky bathtubs for those who desire indulgence under-the-stars.

    Carpentry in solid cedar wood and a choice of cotton linens offer guests comfort in the stately manner of the 19th century. With its stylish use of such local materials as hand-fabricated cement tiles and chucum stucco, guests to Rosas & Xocolate can fully experience the old-world charm of the Yucatan peninsula and escape together into a subtly decadent and delicious sea of passion.

    Interior Design

    The old-world charm of the Yucatan

    The interior of the boutique hotel conserves the conceptual form of the original architecture and uses it to optimize the elegance and comfort of the contemporary embellishments. Each of 17 rooms has its own charm, with private terraces, double walls over four meters high and airtight double glazed windows that allow the rooms to be illuminated by sunset in complete silence.
