Mexico is for Boutique Hotel Design Enthusiasts

Boutique hotel enthusiasts who adore design should travel to Mexico, where opting for a less commercialized place of accommodation—as a replacement to a colossal, corporate beachfront hotel—can serve as the perfect immersion into the country’s architecturally-rich heritage. From colonial to contemporary edifice styles, the country’s treasure trove of boutique hotels is emblematic of the multi-faceted design styles found throughout the Latin American nation

If you love design, avoiding tourist traps, and architectural immersion, consider staying at Casa Hoyos (@casahoyos) in UNESCO World Heritage Site, San Miguel de Allende. A four-generation, family-owned hotel, the storied structure brilliantly blends the town’s iconic colonial features with avant-garde splendors, palpably brought to life through local artisanal techniques such as glazed ceramic, clay slabs, and pasta tiles. Mexican design is infused throughout the hotel’s 16 rooms and is easily recognizable through furnishings. Optimal for lounging and watching the sunset, the hotel’s terrace bar, BEKEB, is led by internationally renowned mixologist, Fabiola Padilla. In the past, she has collaborated with Enrique Olvera’s COSME and the Diego bar by the creator of Studio 54, Ian Schrager, located in the PUBLIC Hotel on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

On the pristine beaches of Troncones in the Mexican state of Guerrero stands Lo Sereno Casa de Playa (@losereno_casadeplaya), a hotel with 10 spacious rooms that feels like a private beach home. The interior breathes fine Mexican craftsmanship—repurposed Parota wood furnishings & Palapa art are just a few of the many regional-oriented, aesthetically-pleasing touches within the premises. Inside and out, carefully blueprinted contemporary Mexican architecture bodes with resident tropicality, resulting in a simple-but-elegant atmosphere. Design-honchos will love the avant-garde-style lobby, seaside infinity pool, on-site restaurant with its handcrafted pergola, and minimalist bathrooms with glass walls and outdoor rain showerheads
