The Hacienda TemozonKM 182 Carretera Merida-Uxmal Temozon Sur, Yucatan,
Drenched in sun and steeped in historic ambience, The Hacienda Temozon affords an ideal choice for couples seeking the truly exceptional for their wedding or honeymoon escape. Originally an estancia, or farmstead, the hacienda later became a major producer of sisal, the Yucatán’s “green gold.”
Today the property specializes in world-class hospitality against a backdrop of manicured gardens and seventeenth-century architecture. The 28 rooms and suites feature 18-foot ceilings with exposed beams, wooden doors, tile floors, private plunge pools and woven cotton hammocks for sleeping in the Mayan style. Despite their vintage character, all rooms come with the latest amenities-fluffy robes, fresh flowers and fruit on arrival and daily turndown service. Steps away await a Mayan-inspired spa with several mind-body treatments for couples to share.
At Temozon, each wedding is a custom affair, and a professional coordinator assists with everything from the music and photography to floral arrangements and post-wedding events for guests. Another unique touch: couples can request a special hideaway on the grounds, with candles illuminating the scene and some of the property’s 50 species of birds providing the serenade. Honeymooners can also dine at Casa Principal restaurant on Yucatecan dishes using organic produce grown onsite.
Honeymooners can dine in their room or at the Casa Principal restaurant on Yucatecan dishes using organic produce grown onsite. For a night to remember, they can request a special hideaway on the grounds, with candles illuminating the scene and some of the 50 species of birds on the property providing the serenade.
The spa, called Hol Bá, a Mayan phrase meaning “open way in the forest,” occupies the old machine room. Mayan therapists use healing techniques and treatments handed down through the centuries. Using a “high-touch, low tech” approach, the expert staff dispenses couples massages in the privacy of guests’ rooms, a Mayan Underworld Massage in a cenote or a Mayan energizing treatment at the spa.
Countless relics of Mayan culture occupy the Yucatán Peninsula near The Hacienda Temozon. Archaeological zones and ancient colonial villages make the area appealing to adventure-seekers.
