Mexico Boutique Hotels Announces Four New Members For 2010

Puerto Vallarta, MEXICO  – As is our custom at Mexico Boutique Hotels, we scoured the country over the past year to find cool new hideaways to add to our cool collection. We’re very happy to say we’ve discovered four absolutely marvelous boutique hotels that fit—and even exceed—our stringent standards. You know, the ones that make our guests come back to book with us again and again? (If you have any questions, we’re happy to oblige with answers! See below for contact info.)

Without any further ado and in no particular order, we’re proud to present Mexico Boutique Hotels’ four new members:
Casa Bichu (Puerto Angel)
Secluded – Detailed – Simple Elegance

An excellent place for a pas de deux: this place was practically created for couples. All the villas have ocean views of the crashing, rolling, lovely surf below; some have private Jacuzzis overlooking the Pacific. The design is simply… amazing. Mexican architect Monica Viscara has used all natural materials to their best advantage: giant shells serve as bathroom sinks, walls are inlaid with wood flowers, bamboo structures let in air and light… The ocean is everywhere, in the views, in the décor, in the air… Call it immersion therapy for the soul.

Posada Real de Chiapas (San Cristobal de Las Casas)
Central – Rustic – Casual

This 17th century mansion has been in the Flores de la Tovilla family for five generations—the current owner, Judith Yannini, was born here. She fulfilled her father’s wish to make their ancestral home a hotel and he presides lovingly over the operation from his framed picture on the front desk. You will be welcomed as an honored guest in a lovely family home. We love how the Posada supports the local textile industry and its indigenous weavers. We love the hand-woven bedspreads in every room and the elegant embroidered regional costumes on the staff. And we love the folkloric ballet that dances every Saturday in the courtyard.

Villa Flamingos (Isla Holbox)
Rustic – Secluded – Casual

Villa Flamingos is set up like a tiny village outside the tiny village of Holbox. Thatched roofs cover gaily-painted buildings, all with balconies and hammocks hung just so to steal the breeze off the turquoise blue ocean. Simply but tastefully furnished, it takes its cues from island living: vivid colors, beach motifs, brilliant white mosquito netting over the beds… The showerheads are made out of seashells and, because it’s very eco-conscious, the run-off goes to water the little garden behind every room. Wonderful side-note: if you happen to arrive late and are exhausted from the trip, you’ll be given a cool drink and led to your room—the check-in can wait until morning!

Posada Tacubaya (Alamos)
Casual – Central – Eclectic

The entrance to the Posada is right on the original Camino Real, the road that in 1775 led to the founding of San Francisco. It’s within this framework of living history that this little gem welcomes you to its genuinely charming, Mexican B&B ambiance. Bring your kids, bring your dog—they’re all invited! And because the Posada is owned by the Swickards, who created the stylish Hacienda de los Santos, you can be assured you’re in for an unforgettable experience. Just three blocks from the main Plaza in Alamos, a great place to explore with (or without) the kids (and the dog).
