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.
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.
