Hacienda Petac, one half hour from Merida, Yucatan, is an exciting “discovery”…a gracious, private estate with an attentive Mayan staff, no crowds or hotel hassles… where families and friends can explore and reconnect.
Impeccably restored, Hacienda Petac has seven spacious guest rooms in four buildings surrounding the main house. Each room has soaring ceilings and beautiful, native-stone bathrooms. The original exterior walls have been preserved and the interiors in peach, terra cotta and cornflower blue recall its 400-year-old splendor.
There are acres of gardens and trails pleasing birdwatchers, a swimming pool and bikes available for explorers. Their spa offers a rich variety of treatments, many based on the Mayan tradition. There are also cooking classes available for those interested in Yucatecan cuisine. For guests who wish to explore the diverse attractions of this region, several of the world’s finest Mayan archeological sites and underwater caves are within an hour.
