Chable Resort and Spa, Yucatan

Truly the best of both worlds, with the best of modern design and luxury, ensconced within the walls of a 19th century hacienda, set in profuse gardens.

Stay in the Chable during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Mexico and you’ll find a harmonious combination of stunning modern design and the history of a working hacienda. Choose the Presidential Villa and you’ll be able to immerse yourself in a white, stone-hewn bath, and your own private swimming pool. Opt for any of the casitas and you’ll have outdoor living space, a pool, walk in closets and dressing areas…

But actually, a stay at Chable isn’t about luxury, it’s about you. The resort concentrates on encouraging you to relax and embark upon a wellness programme that includes spa treatments, holistic programmes, nature discovery, cultural and historic visits to local towns and – not least of all – exquisite food prepared by one of Mexico’s most respected chefs.
