Hotel Azúcar – Mexico

Conceived by hotelier Carlos Couturier, founder of some of Mexico’s most stylish resort properties, Hotel Azúcar takes its name from the sugar cane grown extensively  in the Veracruz state.

Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the hotel has only 20 elegant thatched-roof palapas (each named after a Veracruz sugar mill), all with curved white walls, contemporary furnishings, and terraces and locally made hammocks.

Public spaces are mainly open-air, including the library with wicker seating and a thatched ceiling, stocked with a wide range of books to while away the hours.

The Xochicalli Spa, offers a  menu with great local treatments, like a Temazcal-style steam bath with traditional Mexican purifying herbs (1 hour).
