Rosas y Xocolate

With a name like that, it’s no wonder this boutique hotel is a prime spot for romantic getaways in the Yucatan’s capital city. The two pink-hued colonial mansions are as charming as they are camera-friendly, bedecked in vibrant modern art and picturesque patios and outdoor corners that mix lush greenery and sleek furnishings. Life here feels like its perpetually viewed through rose-colored glasses, and it’s not just the walls: the spa offers an enticing menu of xocolatherapies; the tequila bar has over 250 varieties to sample; the oasis-like swimming pool is a palm-shaded spot for afternoon dips; and there’s even a chocolate shop on-site. Guests can dine on gourmet fusion fare in the restaurant, or head up to the rooftop lounge for cocktails with a side of live jazz. As for the guest rooms, they’re no less indulgent with their rose and cocoa palettes and patterned-tile floors; minimalist bathrooms have sumptuous open-air stone tubs, large walk-in rainfall showers, and handmade chocolate soaps.

Rosas y Xocolate

It's impossible to miss the rose petal­–pink exterior of Rosas y Xocolate, a boutique hotel that sits on the most important—and scenic—historic street in the city of Mérida. That facade hints at the nature of the entire experience of staying at Rosas y Xocolate, where the owners strive to continually stimulate guests' senses. Many of the design elements of the hotel speak to aspects of Yucatecan history. The walls of rooms, for example, were colored with a dye produced by using a Maya technique of boiling tree bark. Throughout the hotel, guests see knotted strands of neutral-colored fibers; these are bundles of sisal and henequen, fibers that were once harvested in the area and which made many plantation owners wealthy. Gorgeous colonial-era tiles line the floors. Colorful hand-embroidered throw pillows, made by Mexican artisans, adorn couches and beds. And in the bathrooms, visitors will find handmade chocolate soap.

Rosas y Xocolate

Located on regal Paseo de Montejo, Mérida’s grand boulevard (modeled after the Champs-Élysées), the Rosas y Xocolate hotel and restaurant is an impressive feat of style and restoration, worth visiting to check out hot-pink walls and tiled floors that garnered it a 2011 architectural-design award. The food is worth sticking around for, too. Diners can opt to eat in a chic, contemporary dining room; in an open-air courtyard covered in climbing plants; or on the roof at the aptly named Moon Lounge. Fusion cuisine is the name of the game, along with a few international dishes like a chocolate "volcano" dessert. The dark-chocolate martinis are a luxuriously decadent accompaniment to any meal.
