This pretty, pink-walled hotel beautifully blends a Luis Barragán-inspired colour palette with a colonial design. While the in-house spa offers treatments that incorporate chocolate.

The two, one-bedroom suites at Coqui Coqui Mérida Residence & Spa come with private terraces, marble bathrooms and four-poster beds, making it feel more like a lavish pied-à-terre than a city hotel.


Formerly a painter’s gallery, Ya’ax has been lovingly converted into an 11-bedroom boutique hotel with mosaic-tiled floors, a courtyard pool and local artwork throughout.
