Housed in an 18th Century colonial house, Casa Oaxaca has been painstakingly restored and modernised to create a designer boutique hotel.
There are just seven bedrooms, all cleverly designed to make the best use of space and light. They are all large and spacious, and most are set around a broad, white washed terrace. The understated and elegant decor is offset by works of art created by local artists.
Innovatively, the restaurant is based in two locations, one in the courtyard at the hotel, and the other a ten minute walk away next to the cathedral in the historical city centre. Both serve delicious, contemporary Mexican fare such as seabass ceviche, which will have been brought up from the coast the same morning.
Other facilities include a swimming pool and a Temazcal - a traditional Mayan steam bath. Tours of the local markets are also available, followed by classes teaching guests how to cook their purchases in true Mexican style.
Why we love it
Forget a boring old massage at the hotel, why not try a temazcal - a traditional Mayan purifying steam bath instead.
