At first glance, the stone walls and tropical gardens that encircle Chablé Resort & Spa will make you wonder if you’ve stumbled across an ancient Mayan temple. But look deeper and you’ll discover a luxurious spa retreat made for 21st-century getaways. With private villas dotted across 750 acres, Chablé Resort promises total tranquillity.
Its design immerses guests in the heritage of the Yucatán Peninsula and pays homage to its natural setting. A pool curves through the tropical gardens, but you’ll also have your own in your villa – complete with lanterns for moonlit dips and hammocks for morning snoozing. Be sure to explore the spa, set within an enchanting cave. Then settle down to contemporary fine dining, created from home-grown ingredients.
This is a real get-away-from-it-all escape. But just 25 minutes away from Chablé Resort & Spa is Mérida. The ‘White City’ has all you need for a cultural fix, from fascinating museums and charming markets to festivals and nearby Mayan ruins.
