Hotel Zoom-In: Cuixmala

A sumptuous, remote jungle retreat along the Pacific Ocean in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Cuixmala (@cuixmala), is the former residence of late British magnate, Sir James Goldsmith. The hotel has hosted famous guests in the past—Mick Jagger, Madonna, and Cara Delavigne are just a few—on its 30,000 acres of natural reserve, which house a bio-dynamic farm, coconut plantation, bamboo garden, horse stables, and three private beaches. The hotel was envisioned to be a beacon of sustainability; eco-friendly initiatives include free-roaming zebras & antelopes, over 270 species of birds, and a protection foundation for the area’s sea turtle population. Decorated in Mexican, Moorish, and Indian-style furnishings, the hotel has four suites in the main Casa Cuixmala building, ten freestanding casitas, six bungalows, and three private villas. However, out of the above, architecturally, perhaps its most praised hallmark is Casa Cuixmala, as it houses La Loma, which draws inspiration from the famous Hagia Sophia, with a blue-and-yellow dome atop its adobe-style walls.
