Featuring artwork and antique furniture, the polished rooms come with free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Rustic-chic suites feature wood ceiling beams, plus sitting areas or living rooms.

Room Information

The  hotel  is  made  up  of  six  historic  casonas,  or  residences.  The  casonas are  all  individually decorated in styles that reflect the hotel’s historic location and feature shady colonnaded courtyards,  filled  with  fragrant  bougainvillea  and  jasmine,  and  lit  by  lanterns  as  night  falls. Hummingbirds hover above the flowering shrubs, while fountains sparkle under brilliant blue skies. It’s a luxurious sanctuary from the world, certainly, but not a sanctuary from San Miguel itself:  the  vibrant  city  is  just  as  present  inside  the  hotel  as  outside,  allowing  guests  to  feel  a deep  connection with their surroundings, whether they’re watching the sunset from their terrace or lying by the pool.

Divided between the casonas are the hotel’s 37 rooms and suites. Each is unique, filled with Mexican  art,  antiques  and  exquisite  local  fabrics,  while traditional  features  include  carved stone  fireplaces  and  wood-beamed  ceilings.  The  beds  are  dressed  with  fine  linens  and  soft pillows; traditional Mexican Talavera tiles in the bathrooms lend an air of rustic charm. Many of  the  suites  have  balconies  which not  only  provide  great  views  of  the  city  and  the  casa courtyards, but are fantastic vantage points from which to watch the spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

The  standout  suite  is,  without  doubt,  the  Presidential  Suite,  a  sympathetic  marriage  of contemporary  comfort  and  colonial  charm.  Located  in  Casa  Palma,  a  former  18th-century mansion, it features two furnished terraces, one of which offers unparalleled views of the city, and a private plunge pool.

Things To Do

Laja Spa
Laja Spa pays tribute to the Laja River, which flows through the mountains and into San Miguel. Treatments are available in three beautiful air-conditioned colonial-style treatment rooms and combine ancient practices with 21st-century understanding and techniques.For those who like it hot, Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada also offers a traditional Mexican temazcal. Temazcal is an ancient Mexican ritual intended to cleanse the mind, body and spirit. It’s performed in sauna-like temperatures courtesy of heated stones onto which an aromatic mixture of medicinal herbs such as rosemary, St Mary’s thistle and squaw mint and copal –a resin used by the Mayans as incense –are placed to eliminate toxins from the body. Indigenous chanting, meanwhile, helps to purify the spirit. According to tradition, the treatment is divided into four sessions, with the door thrown open for some much-needed fresh air after each session.

The temazcal is a wonderful cleansing, rejuvenating and empowering experience, though perhaps not one for the claustrophobic.

From horseback riding in the Mexican countryside to revitalising visits to a local hot spring, Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada offers a number of curated tours designed to enhance the guest experience.
