Set right on the beach, against the backdrop of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, the Four Seasons is by far the area’s sleekest stay. Exclusivity is of course a draw—a handful of celebrities from L.A. are rumored to have bought villas. But there’s also a strong outdoor-adventure pull, from snorkeling in nearby Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park, where giant polka-dot whale sharks hunt for plankton, to quad-biking empty sand dunes.
Nestled in a canopy of palms, the resort's treehouses are accessible via foliage-bedecked paths, offering complete privacy. Clad in screening of thin sticks sourced from local palo de arco trees, the wood-floored, cement-roofed suites - which look a bit like cubist, modernist birds’ nests from the outside - allow breezes to flow through and natural light to filter in. Heavy canvas curtains can be drawn around the inside of the walls if you’d like it to be darker.

The DNA: Casa Blanca 7 makes its home in a 300-year-old house in San Miguel de Allende's Spanish Colonial historic center, and as its name might suggest, it’s got a touch of Moroccan atmosphere, recalling in a subtle way the ultra-private riad hotels of cities like Casablanca and Marrakech.
Guanajuato is a labyrinth of underground passageways, cobbled alleys, and colonial architecture nestled in one of Mexico’s most picturesque valleys. A UNESCO world heritage site, Guanajuato's narrow, winding thoroughfares have a lost-in-time feel, and Edelmira Hotel provides a stylish home base from which to launch delightfully meandering, self-guided walking tours.
Although a 13 plus–acre resort (the largest in the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s cobblestone historic center), the Rosewood San Miguel evokes an authentic sense of place, with buildings made with the limestone used to build parts of the old town, and decor crafted by local artists and artisans.

Any hotel that’s modestly sized, memorable, and presents a unique point of view on its setting qualifies as a boutique hotel in our book. And BellView fits the bill.

“B+B Hotel” might seem redundant, but Las Casas, an 11-room hideaway right in the heart of Cuernavaca’s pocket-sized downtown, is truly a little bit of both — it’s more polished and more stylish than most any bed and breakfast, while it’s smaller and more intimate than most any hotel, boutique or otherwise. The rooms and suites are sharply outfitted in shades of white and gray, with the house’s colonial architecture still visible beneath the contemporary, minimalist décor.
The Anticavilla boutique hotel is set in a restored colonial mansion in Cuernavaca's residential area of Vista Hermosa.

The style at this nineteenth-century estate is broadly historical, but it’s immediately apparent that it was assembled with a designer’s eye. The Maison’s rustic atmosphere is all the more impressive given that fact. Eight bungalows make up the bulk of the accommodation, augmented by an Owner’s Suite in the estate’s main house. They’re only just as modern as they need to be — a/c, internet, plasma screens — but there’s nothing to break the spell of the Maison’s countrified elegance.
Named for the sugar cane grown in its home state of Veracruz, the Azúcar is a bohemian chic hotel overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The hotel has 20 low-slung thatched-toof bungalows, all in an intense white-on-white colour scheme, with private terraces, each with its own locally made hammock for naps or reading sessions cooled by the sea breeze. Public spaces are mainly open-air, including the library, a spa area and a restaurant.

Totaling just 15 rooms, Tiki Tiki feels as much like a Miami apartment building as it does a boutique hotel, due in no small part to the sizable rooms, the courtyard pool, glass-block windows, perforated surfaces, slatted wood, and a steady diet of blues and greens colluding towards a rewarding aesthetic eyeful. Of course some rooms come with indoor hammocks, the better to idly thumb through a paperback while drinking in the patterned tilework and floods of equatorial light.
A luxurious hideaway, Hotel Escencia is set thirty minutes north of Tulum and feels a world away from it all. Once the former home of an Italian duchess, it’s now a boutique hotel with three restaurants, two pools, and a spa that overlooks a cenote.

The property borders the Xpu-Ha cove to the south, a haven for the area’s sea turtles.
This property was purchased by Mexican entrepreneurs and rebranded from the old Casa Pueblo into a brighter, chicer version of itself. Within the three-story, oceanfront structure are 14 sunlit rooms. With design touches inspired by historic estates of the Caribbean, each room is austere with polished floors, long white corridors, and minimalist furnishings, as the star of the show is the view of the sea.The swanky rooftop terrace, is where craft cocktails are paired with seafood dishes.
