Step back in time at Azúcar to a place of breathtaking natural beauty as you saunter through the 20 low-lying whitewashed palapas (bungalows), each with a thatched roof and an intimate terrace overlooking the stunning Gulf of Mexico. Just one look at the blues of the sky and sea, and guests are overcome by an atmosphere that is airy, breezy, and easy. With its curved walls and spare white-on-white interiors that are simple to the extreme, Azúcar, which is named for the sugarcane grown in its Mexican home state of Veracruz, possesses the kind of authentic style that both hearkens to the past and fulfills the modern traveler’s style demands. The restaurant features the freshest of Gulf seafood served in a sugary-white environment. It’s a simple recipe for luxury, but it works wonders on world-weary souls.

Each of the 20 bungalows plays host to a private terrace with a hammock, as well as offering a bathroom with a shower and an additional shower outside. The Double bungalow features a king-size bed, while the Double Double boasts two queen-size beds.
How long has it been since you looked at a clock? Hours? Days? The hammock swings languorously back and forth in the warm, salty breeze. One leg hangs off the side, your toes grazing the wood slat flooring of your private patio…

For Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, building hotels that reflect their surroundings is more than just a job—it’s a passion that drove these two Mexican entrepreneurs from citrus farming and investment banking to boutique hospitality. “Even if we’re successful at something, we don’t repeat it,” Couturier says. “We like this sense of passion and audacity.” Their Grupo Habita collection has grown to include very diverse properties, including 13 Design Hotels™ member hotels across Mexico and the U.S. Ambitious, fun-loving and well-traveled, the dynamic duo was awarded ‘Team of the Year 2011’ by FIZZZ Magazine.
