Banyan Tree Group has opened its third property in Mexico, Hacienda Xcanatun, which will be operated by its upscale brand Angsana. Located 15 minutes from the centre of Merida, 10 minutes from the archaeological zone of Dzibilchaltún and 20 minutes from the beaches of Puerto Progreso, Hacienda Xcanatun by Angsana will offer a new historic-chic oasis in the region.
Hacienda Xcanatun by Angsana presents a contemporary interpretation of the legendary Yucatan Haciendas and represents a new commitment of the hotel group’s promotion of a destination’s historical heritage and culture.
Under the seal of quality and global luxury standards of Angsana, the Hacienda has evolved into a contemporary space, with the aim to be the first local resort inspiring the philosophy of carefree luxury. Hacienda Xcanatun by Angsana features 18 renovated suites and its flagship restaurant, Casa de Piedra, is helmed by chef Paloma Ponce.
Rooted in the group’s sustainability ethos of “Embracing the Environment, Empowering People”, the property is a part of the Comisaria Meridana de Xcanatun. It will support projects dedicated to inclusion and community collaboration and preserve the natural flora and fauna with a garden for iguanas, coatimundis, herons and a diverse array of birds.
