Well-loved boutique hotel in a converted colonial house with just seven individually styled rooms, each brimming with colour and character, and an exceptional restaurant.
The highly regarded boutique hotel within a converted 18th century house is situated in the heart of Oaxaca, a stone's throw from the main square.
There are just seven rooms in Casa Oaxaca, each individually styled and brimming with character. Simple white walls and beautiful wooden furniture allow the sumptuous jewel tones of textiles to burst through, echoing the colours of the fresh flowers that appear daily. The theme continues elsewhere in the hotel, with calming white spaces complementing bursts of vibrant colour to great effect.
A secluded terrace with hammocks provides the perfect spot for relaxation on a sunny Mexican afternoon, and there is also a shady patio and attractive pool. However what the hotel really prides itself on is its gourmet food, served in its popular restaurant and combining traditional Oaxacan cuisine with modern flair. The exceptionally helpful and welcoming staff are a further factor adding to Casa Oaxaca's sparkling reputation.
What our clients say
Highlights?: Probably seeing the Diego Rivera murals in Mexico City although it is hard to pick out as there were so many moments that we loved. A boat trip on the lake of Bacalar was also amazing.JT, Thames ditton
Most Memorable Moment?: So many! Maybe the balloon ride?KFD, London
Whale watching in San Jose Del CaboCS, Epsom
There were many highlights: the beautiful beach on our first morning in Cancun, the boat ride among the flamingos at Celestun, the sight of the Magicians Pyramid at Uxmal and the climb up the Great Pyramid there ( although not the descent, which was very vertiginous!). We loved the city of Merida, and having a Sunday at leisure there was very well planned by Sophie. We walked the Paseo de Montejo, open only to bikes and pedestrians, visited the Museum of Anthropology, then had a late lunch in Santa Lucia park watching the locals dancing. Later we watched them again in the evening dancing opposite the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor. Great fun, we loved it all. We also has a fantastic visit to Ek Balam on our way to Tulum, which was one on our Mayan Archeological highlights.AF, Merriott
Most Memorable Moment?: The awesome encounter with a grey whale mother and calf.WS, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Hard to say as we enjoyed every part of our trip. We loved the mixture of ancient sites and other attractions so we did not feel overwhelmed by one type of attraction.DS, Paisley
