Hacienda Xcanatun Joins Virtuoso

Hacienda Xcanatun, once an 18th century sisal plantation that has been re-imagined as a small luxury hotel, recently was selected to join Virtuoso, the invitation-only luxury travel network. Set on acres of gardens on the outskirts of Merida, Xcanatun combines the hacienda ambience of colonial Mexico with the contemporary luxury and amenities of an intimate boutique property. Opened in 2000, Xcanatun is currently the only privately owned and managed hacienda hotel in the Yucatan. Additional features that set Xcanatun apart from other hacienda-style hotels include a gourmet restaurant and full-service spa offering holistic Maya treatments. Guests have a choice of 13 suites and 5 superior rooms. For additional information call 888-883-3633.
