Hacienda Temozon is a luxury hotel in a restored estate from the 19th century boom of Henequen, also known as green gold. The restoration job was an undertaking of minute detail. You can still see the original machines, the henequen drying patio, original tiling and an impressive collection of original artifacts, ranging from Mayan artifacts, to a menu of an Hacienda Picnic to mule and carriage leather goods made by Hermés. It is a place that exudes history.
Nature has also been very kind to Temozon. It is set in the midst of a particular type of jungle that allows for a very diverse vegetation, from Ceibas to the local Pichi to, of course, Henequen agave. Birds, frogs, iguanas and other species are also abundant. The Hacienda has 2 Cenotes, which are part of the peninsula-wide underwater hydrologic system. You can even have a massage inside a natural cave that is the opening to the Cenote for a one of a kind experience.
As difficult as topping history and nature could be, the true gem of the hacienda is the people who live and work for it. Management under Starwood's luxury collection ensures that things run smoothly and that you have a range of top notch services, from airport pick-up to arranging day tours to other historic and natural wonders nearby to a whole vacation visiting the complete set of Haciendas in the luxury collection. Complementing that is a team that comes from the local communities, with artisan skills, an authentic desire to please and a warmth that can only be experienced is rural Mexico.

- Hacienda Temozon is one of the most valuable residencies built in the 17th century, located in the Yucatan Peninsula. Just a 35 minute drive from Merida’s International Airport, this place is surrounded by a landscape where henequen was formerly cultivated and sisal was widely produced. Among the natural attractions that surround the place are the Lol-tun cenotes and caves, and the Uxmal Mayan Ruins. Its high-elevated ceilings and the exquisite ambiance of its 28 guest rooms and suites evoke the splendor of the colonial times when these premises were built.
