Chic & Relaxed Vibe
The property is designed in the classic style of San Miguel’s Spanish hacienda architecture with a modern twist and sports plenty of open spaces and courtyards, creating a romantic and relaxed setting. Guestrooms are a minimum of 450 sq. ft. and have wood floors, 10-ft.-high ceilings, soaking tubs, and comfy bedding. There’s a phonograph in every room coupled with a variety of music albums. A service-forward staff is ready to assist at every turn, explains Nohemi Chavarin, director of sales. “It is the hotel company’s culture to train their staff to be very authentic.” Couples can relax on the infinity pool deck with bar and snack service available.
During their stay, couples will enjoy two restaurants: Zibu, serving Mexican cuisine with Thai infusion; and Spice Market with an international menu that features a Thai influence. In fact, culinary excellence is a hallmark of the resort, and executive chef Ernesto Narvaez takes pride in sourcing fresh and local ingredients. For an enchanting romantic experience, recommend your clients opt for a candlelight dinner in Zibu’s courtyard.
Wedding groups can book up to 100 rooms at the property and they’ll have a choice of indoor or outdoor spaces for the ceremony and reception. The couple can take advantage of the 1,436-sq.-ft. Presidential Suite, and there are special suites for the groom and friends, as well as the bridal party pre-ceremony. The bridal suite has multiple dressing tables and mirrors for hair and make-up, while the groom’s suite has a pool table, large-screen TVs and rother amenities. The wedding party can also spend time at the Feel Urban Day Spa, offering a myriad of services, or hang out at Casa Dragones Cigar Bar, which can be privatized for mezcal and tequila tastings.
Wedding groups also have access to San Miguel de Allende’s largest ballroom, says managing director Alfonso Martinez. “The ballroom can accommodate 850 seated, three terraces can host 400 seated and the pool area 250 seated.”
For a truly unique experience, Martinez points to the “majestic and romantic hot air balloon rides over the city that leave right from the resort at sunrise.”
