FROM THE ARTISTIC TO THE EXTRAVAGANT…NEW AND TRENDING HOTELS

TOTAL ESCAPE… INTO A PARADISE WORLD ENHANCED WITH ARTISTIC IMAGES

On the tiny Island of Holbox, north of Cancun, lies a fantasy for those who get caught up in the great art of nature, who believe in the power of dreaming, romance and intimate connections with loved ones. The owner, Sandra Pérez, a full-time artist, went to Holbox looking for solitude, a place to create art and a way to renew her childhood fascination with nature.

In 2003 Sandra opened the doors of her home to guests as a way to share the blessing and rejuvenation of this special destination. By joining a unique sensibility and attention to detail she has created a sense of place to refresh and escape the routine: the hotel is her authentic work of art!

The Casa Sandra is filled with dreams and decorated with original works of art made by her and other Cuban artists such as Roberto Fabelo and Noel Morera and is appointed with handmade Mexican furniture and Cuban antiques.

This artistic and charming boutique hotel, member of TemptingPlaces boutique hotels collection is a must for couples looking for a romantic stay full of surprises around every corner.
