Too much of a good thing is never enough and even though Mexico is still recovering from an awesome Cinco de Mayo, we’ve got news that had us fishing out a bottle of Añejo as soon as it hit.

The Rosewood group will soon be opening a brand new hotel in Mexico’s cultural center and it promises to be one of 2016’s hottest openings, and of course we would expect nothing less from these fine hoteliers.

The vibrant city of Puebla is set to welcome the Rosewood’s fourth hotel in Mexico. Located in the Zocalo, Puebla’s cultural, religious and political center, future residents will be right on the pulse of what makes this typical Mexican city tick and there’s a lot going on here.

Rosewood Puebla

Puebla features colonial architecture ranging from Renaissance to Mexican Baroque and the hotel will carry the same architectural blue print fused with a contemporary touch. The Rosewood has announced that local craftsmanship will feature heavily in the hotel’s decor, with Talavera pottery, furnishings and local artwork setting the tone. The atmosphere is nicely rounded off with a 300 year old chapel in the hotel’s courtyard…. and yes you can tie the knot there if you choose to.

The aura of authenticity of The Rosewood Puebla is maintained by its 79 guestrooms and suites which will be made up of a collection of authentic buildings surrounding a walled off courtyard. Dining options will allow guests to make the most of the warm Mexican evenings with courtyard seating in the main restaurant and a rooftop bar and swimming pool offer picture perfect views over the Igelsia de San Francisco. If it sounds like you might be tempted to stay within the hotel walls you’re absolutely right but a UNESCO heritage city awaits just outside so choose carefully.

Rosewood Puebla

Puebla‘s downtown area was declared a world heritage site in 1987 and it’s home to over 2,600 historic sites and over 365 churches. It is also home to two of the country’s most significant archaeological sites one of which contains the largest pyramids in the world, so there’s plenty of things to do for the history buff or if you just want to soak in the local culture… oh and they throw a pretty mean Cinco de Mayo too.
