Santa Rosa is a first class, beautifully restored hacienda offering luxury countryside accommodation within easy reach of Mérida and Celestún.

This romantic restored colonial Hacienda Santa Rosa in the western part of the Yucatán Peninsula shelters behind huge gates on the edge of a small village.

 During the colonial period this was a cattle ranch, before switching to specialise in the production of dye-wood. Abandoned, it fell into disrepair until the 17th century buildings were converted into blissful luxury accommodation, with vast guest rooms featuring lofty ceilings, gleaming tiled floors and polished antique furniture.

Tropical foliage spills over retained walls and stone pools in a much-loved landscaped garden of flowering plants and orchards. There’s a gorgeous pool and an al fresco restaurant under the arches of the main house and a candle-lit library.

Many of the original features have been incorporated into the design, and with the understated décor a rustic-chic effect is created; but there is no denying that the property also evokes the affluence of the old days.
