Images from Private Haciendas
Hacienda Tamchen is an impeccably restored 17th century hacienda in the Yucatan Peninsula available for private booking. The estate marries the elegance of ancient Mayan architecture and culture with luxury hotel amenities. Equipped with a full staff, the four-bedroom property includes the original main house's master bedroom with private terrace, a "chimney room" with king accommodations and private plunge pool, and two separate villas. A total of five pools - the largest is over 2,000 square feet - are nestled among charming lily ponds and expansive, immaculate gardens.
Named by Elle as one of the four "most beautiful haciendas in Mexico," the property is outfitted with a professional kitchen, a massage area, and living and dining rooms. With modern furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows exposing lush vegetation, moss-covered stairways, massive lawns and ornate stonework, the sun-splashed retreat is the height of relaxed, sophisticated splendor.
