Hacienda Temozon

Blue hour, Hacienda Temozon, Yucatan

The Hacienda was built 300 hundred years ago on top of a Mayan ceremonial center and reached its peak in the 19th century. In this period it became one of the world leading producers of sisal.

The sisal is an agave from which a fiber is extracted and used to make twine, rope even dart boards.

By the 1950’s sisal was no longer the main crop of the area and the Hacienda closed down.

The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden.

The fountain fed pool is glorious and features 4 column raising from the water.

The incredible pool, Hacienda Temozon, Yucatan

At the end of the pool the old ‘factory’ and part of the machinery are still visible.

The feel throughout the property is a Garcia Marquez meets luxury of a bygone era.

The restaurant overlooking the pool, the Yucatecan restaurant, Casa Principal, blends European and Mexican cuisine in the traditional manner of the region, to produce spicy organic dishes and a range of marmalades and jams.

You can have quirky private dinner in a romantic setting, ask the staff to set up a candlelit table in the gardens or one of the Hacienda’s tumbledown buildings.

Last orders at Casa Principal’s ovens stop at 10.30pm, when the bar closes too.

Room service meals can be served in-room during restaurant hours.

The hotel’s little bar, Gárgolas, is a quiet spot for enjoying views of the garden over a tamarind margarita. It’s especially attractive when the Hacienda’s illuminated at night.
