Porfirian pied-à-terre


Sun-soaked colonial calle

Step into a glass-and-gold Coqui Coqui perfume bottle when you spend the night at the trend-setting brand’s restored Belle Epoque hotel, Coqui Coqui Mérida Residence & Spa. Your imagination couldn’t have dreamed up a sexier, more well-designed pied-à-terre than this one-suite hideaway – with its high ceilings, marble tiled floors and a breeze ruffling the richly hued drapes – in the cobblestoned heart of historic Mérida.

Our favourite rooms

This one-room hideaway’s sprawling solo suite is an airy homage to Porfirian design, complete with glittering glass chandeliers, two claw-footed tubs, rich velvet drapes and the original Mexican floor tiles. A private balcony overlooking the courtyard and the rooftop terrace with sunloungers add to the opulence.


The rich scent of tabaco wafts through the hotel's luxury spa. Set around a peaceful courtyard with an outdoor bath tub, it's s an excellent spot for a break from the buzz of the city. Completely unwind with a deep-tissue massage and rejuvenate your skin with a facial using locally-inspired ingredients. For full body relaxation, treat yourself to one of their rituals; their signature Coqui Coqui ritual includes four different types of massage, a brown sugar and honey scrub, a detoxifying drink, a facial and ends with a botanical bath.

Packing tips

Don’t worry about finding a 3oz bottle of your perfume to bring on the plane; Coqui Coqui started as a perfumery and the fragrant shop downstairs from the suite has plenty of sweet-scented choices.


In addition to intimate, East-meets-West treatments at the one-room on-site spa, your hosts can also arrange a 90-minute private yoga and pilates class for USD 40. Be mindful that the hotel isn't easily navigable for those with mobility issues.


This is an adults-only stay.

Food and Drink

Photos Coqui Coqui Mérida Residence & Spa food and drink

Top Table

Breakfast can be served anywhere you like – in your room, on the roof terrace, in the courtyard or in the café. If the sun isn’t too scorching, we’d opt for the rooftop terrace, but the café is a pleasantly cool respite from the heat.

Dress Code

Coqui Coqui might be the ultimate in laid-back tropical chic – flowy maxi dresses and linen pants are the name of the game – but Mérida is a stylish, artsy city, so throw on a few statement pieces to amp up your look around town.

Hotel restaurant

Situated in the L’Epicerie boutique on the hotel’s ground floor, Bistrot is more casual afternoon café than restaurant. You can take your breakfast – a refreshing hodgepodge of fresh seasonal fruit and whatever you’d like Wendy to whip up for you – at one of the small café tables inside or at one of the white wrought-iron tables that spill into the interior courtyard. Otherwise, the only real food served is coffee (Italian expat Beatrice makes a means cappuccino) and house-made chocolates. A casual lunch can be prepared with advanced notice.


Hotel bar

The hotel has plans to serve a selection of high-quality mescal and tequila along with tacos and ceviches at the coffee bar in the café in the future. 

Last orders

Breakfast is served from 8am to 11am; the café is open until 8pm.

Room service

Breakfast can be served in your room for a romantic wake-up.

Worth getting out of bed for

The boutique at L’Epicerie, on the ground floor, draws well-heeled locals and discerning travellers to its curated selection of handicrafts and accessories, as well as Coqui Coqui’s Perfumeria collection. Take advantage of the city’s abundant history of art and strike out on a walking tour of the some of the city’s most beautiful buildings, just steps away. Stop by Mérida's Museum of Anthropology and History, housed in a gorgeous Baroque-style building, to see pre-Columbian artefacts. Visits are free to the Mérida City Museum at 529-A Calle 56, and the building itself is a piece of history (+52 999 923 6869). Study the stars at the Mérida Planetarium, located in the Olimpo Cultural Center in downtown, open Tuesday to Sunday. The famous archaeological site Chichén Itzá is worth the two-hour drive. Craving a day by the sea? Head to Progresso beach, just 25 minutes outside Mérida.


Local restaurants

Start the day with a visit to one of Wayan’e’s two Itzimná locations – one on Circuito Colonial between Avenida Aleman (Calle 4) and Felipe Carrillo Puerto (Calle 6), and the other at the corner of Calle 20 and Calle 15 just north of the Parque de Itzimná – for authentic tacos. Once they’ve sold out, that’s it for the day – they close at 2pm during the week (+52 999 938 0676). Back in Centro, stuff yourself on delicious (and affordable) traditional Mayan cuisine at the relaxed Restaurante La Chaya Maya at 481 Calle 62, a popular spot any time of day. Nearby, Los Almendros has been a local favourite for traditional Yucatecan meals since opening in 1972. Next door, Gran Almendros offers the same menu in a more formal setting (+52 999 923 8135). For a trendier experience, enjoy fresh pizzas and a Mexican take on Italian cuisine at airy sideway restaurant La Tratto, on Calle 60 at Calle 65 (+52 999 923 3787).


Local bars

Located between Avenue Paseo de Montejo and Calle 58A, a short taxi ride from the hotel, Slavia is one of the city’s favourite after-dark hotspots. End your evening on a tufted seat with a puff or two on a hookah in this red-hued restaurant and lounge with a Middle Eastern mood (+52 999 926 6587).

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this intimate boutique hotel in the heart of the Yucatan and unpacked their perfumes and handmade rebozos, a full account of their luxury Mexico city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick postcard from Coqui Coqui Mérida Residence & Spa

Staying at Coqui Coqui Mérida Residence & Spa is like living in a magical realist novel. Everything smells faintly of tobacco and orange blossoms; gilded mirrors and dramatic velvet drapes line the walls of the spacious solo suite, antique glass chandeliers hang from the the ceilings. The turn-of-the-century building’s original marble tiled floors are cool under your feet, a respite from the intense sun outside, and a wrought-iron bed draped in white linen revels in the soft light that streams through floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto a balcony over the tropical, plant-filled interior courtyard. The only people you might see all day are the Italian caretaker and her strikingly beautiful Mexican assistant, who will make whatever you want for breakfast.

Rouse yourself from your languid existence to wander downstairs, through the courtyard and coffee bar, to L’Epicerie, home of Coqui Coqui’s elegant Perfumeria and a curated selection of local handicrafts like leather bags and colourful rebozos. Sip a cappuccino as good as any in Florence to fortify yourself, then step out onto the cobbled streets of artsy Mérida’s Centro Histórico. Duck into restored Belle Epoque buildings – or, Porfirian, as the regional style is known – and get lost among colourful alleyways until you find yourself at a sidewalk table sipping tequila and snacking on fresh fish tacos. Somehow, you’ll find your way back to Coqui Coqui, because that’s what happens in novels.
