At Azúcar, where each bungalow is named after a Veracruz sugar mill, a locally-made hammock stretches across every private patio, inviting guests to swing away beneath the palms as the Gulf breezes blow. Public spaces are largely open-air, like the relaxing biblioteca (library) where guests can lounge in wicker chairs or on pink pillows under jug lamps hanging from an open thatched ceiling, or an outdoor spa that features a yoga space and a wide array of holistic spa services. The sweet brainchild of hotelier Carlos Couturier, the resort focuses on effortless elegance and a fusion with nature.

‘I see my hotel as an ecological, organic project. I wanted to recuperate a lifestyle gone by and give guests the pleasures of simple things,’ says Couturier, mentioning that the chairs found in each bungalow are reproductions of those his grandparents had on their ranch.

Good Wood

Design elements at Azúcar meld a contemporary feel with handmade local flavor. The red-cedar woodwork in the rooms comes from driftwood that Couturier collected from the beach after a flood in Veracruz. ‘I stored it for years until I founded Azúcar. I decided to use it as supports for the beds or as beams and doorframes,’ says the hotelier.
