Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada
Why we like it
- A cluster of historic buildings at the centre of the city
- Cool, leafy gardens, stone arches and traditional wooden doors
- The azure pool sits surrounded by the beautiful stone arches and arcades of the mansion
- The Boutique at Sazón features some of Mexico's finest home-ware. We carefully source from local artisans whose marvellous creations are tomorrow's heirlooms
Pick up some pottery from Gorky Gonzalez, from Michoacan, who mastered his craft under the guidance of his father. Rescuing the lost craft of majolica-beautiful tin-glazed pottery-his famed creations are a wonderful talking point for your home.
I would just like to add that the help / service we received from Melissa Hookway was oustanding. It was very personal and I was made to felt like a valued client.

This beautiful and unique hotel has been created by Belmond by purchasing a number of colonial houses around the town all with slightly different personalities. Our favourites are Casa Limon and Casa Palma next door to each other, set around gardens and a pool and close to the bar and restaurant. Also delightful is Casa Parque across town with big gardens and another al fresco restaurant. The colonial suites have a terrace and private plunge pool but all other rooms have outdoor terraces. For complete luxury, the Presidential Suite has a complete rooftop with barbeque, bar, sofas and a private plunge pool. One block away is the cooking school Sazon where classes and demonstrations can be arranged and one further block takes you to their beautiful spa. One of the loveliest of the many great rooms room is 444 in Casa Limon with a beautiful private terrace overlooking the gardens and pool and with a private plunge pool.
