Welcome to Chablé Yucatán, where centuries of culture, traditions, nature and luxury all intersect to create an indelible experience that will linger with guests for years to come. Immersed in the majestic Mayan jungle, this jungle chic, 18th-century, hacienda pays homage to Mayan heritage and the soul of the past, while exemplifying exceptional modernity of today. The hacienda was originally a cattle ranch and in 1850 it was transformed to a henequen production hacienda. Merida was once the world’s largest producer of henequen, the material used to make rope, and one of the wealthiest cities in the world. Chablé Yucatán aspires to the ideology that, “Luxury is not a visit: it is a way of living”, and this is evident within every facet of this magnificent property. From the award-winning spa, to the luxurious contemporary casitas and indulgent dishes, Chablé Yucatán is the place where perfection is achieved.
