The hotel was once the home of American artist John Houshmand. After a while, you’ll start to notice the influence of his exacting eye ‒ there’s an artful touch in the simplicity of the spaces and the countryside vistas are thoughtfully framed, as though in a painting.

Our favourite rooms
The Panoramic Suites really live up to their name – framing the views of the mountain-range through floor-to-ceiling windows, so you can watch the sunset from the soaking bath tubs big enough for two.
The unheated, family-friendly pool is fed by a natural hotspring so it’s rich in minerals.
You can have your spa treatment either in your room or by the pool – there are hot stone, deep tissue and Swedish massages, reflexology, facials, watsu (aquatic bodywork that takes place in the pool), manicures and pedicures. Private yoga sessions are led by the in-house yogi and take place in the studio or on the roof terrace.
There’s a sun hat provided on every sunlounger, so no need to awkwardly crush one in your carry on.
The public areas are all accessible but the hotel doesn’t have any adapted rooms for wheelchair users.
Pets under 10lbs are welcome, for $25 per night. See more pet-friendly hotels in San Miguel de Allende.
All ages are welcome, but the hotel’s better suited to older children and teens. The Family Suites’ two adjoining rooms are designed for families of four.
