Hacienda San Jose Cholul

Our Ratings

Hacienda San Jose Cholul

Hacienda San José Cholul is a superbly restored aristocratic residence enveloped in exuberant Yucatán forest offering luxury accommodation.  

This captivating restored hacienda exudes historical atmosphere. The story of the riches accrued by the owners of Yucatán estates during the sisal boom is relatively well known, but to have the privilege of staying at one or more of them really brings the story alive.

Upon the collapse of the sisal trade this and similar properties fell into disrepair, but fortunately were acquired and revived as luxury accommodation, refurbished in a way which truthfully reflects the Spanish colonial spirit and style as well as the original affluence. The huge guest rooms are adapted from the workshops and offices, with lofty, beamed ceilings, cool tiled floors, heavy double wooden doors and rustic décor.

The chapel, in which some of the original 18th century frescoes have been preserved, houses a small library. There’s an al fresco restaurant offering delightful setting in which to enjoy the magic of the surrounding bird-filled forest and the 40m pool lies beside the fruit-bearing trees of an orchard dating back over a century.

San José de Cholul is one of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Luxury Collection.
