Best of the Best 2012: Resorts: Rosewood San Miguel de Allende

  • Brad A. Johnson

The Rosewood San Miguel de Allende (+52.415.152.9700, www.rosewoodhotels.com) has brought a new level of luxury to San Miguel de Allende while staying true to the traditions of this former Spanish colonial outpost. Long considered one of Mexico’s most romantic destinations, this once silver-rich town in the Sierra Madre lies just three hours north of Mexico City by car. Though an entirely new build, the Rosewood—with its 19th-century-inspired structures set amid century-old jacaranda trees—blends seamlessly with the town’s historic core and winding cobblestone streets. An exquisite spa incorporates age-old local healing practices, and the indoor/outdoor 1826 restaurant is one of the finest in Mexico, leading the way in the country’s newfound farm-to-table culinary movement. ($300–$2,500)
