Set in a hidden valley with incredible views of the El Tepozteco mountains, this tranquil, adults-only, luxury resort encourages relaxation and inspiration. It’s just a short, beautiful drive from Mexico City, but it feels like another world.
Ancient amate trees shelter Amomoxtli; strange cacti and bougainvillea bloom in its fecund valley. Enter across a 200 year-old bridge and you find yourself in a lush garden, many shades of green, beside a pristine pool. In front of you stands mystical Tepozteco mountain, swathed in Aztec history. There is really nothing quite like this intriguing retreat.
At the main house, a bar, library, terrace and living room combine for a home-in-the-country feel. Outside, the pool is heated and comes with whirlpool baths and killer views. One’s journey of self- and local-discovery begins at the restaurant, where only regional products and recipes are used. Similarly, the spa taps into ancestral techniques, shaman teachings, and native herbs. Spacious, rustic rooms face the beautiful gardens and have a romantic vibe.
Cradled by dramatic, copper-toned mountains, dense with subtropical vegetation, Tepoztlán is one of Mexico’s most alluring vales—and only a two and a half hour drive from Mexico City. This area is rich in natural energy sources: volcanoes, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and mineral springs. It’s also rich in mysticism, known as the birthplace of Quetzalcóatl, the omnipotent serpent god of the Aztecs. Hike up Tepozteco mountain itself and you’ll walk a steep and windy path, passing spectacular waterfalls, slipping through a rock canyon, to reach the ancient pyramid atop. Breathe and take in the one-in-a-lifetime views.
