Chable Resort & Spa

Once a 19th century working hacienda, Chable Resort & Spa is now a beautiful hotel nestled amidst 750 acres of tropical forests. Clean, cool limestone walls sit alongside original hacienda features, rustic Mayan architecture and contemporary wood panelling.

The 38 casitas and 2 spacious villas look out over the Mayan forest and all have a pool as well as an outdoor shower and terrace with hammock. Retreat to the poolside or indulge in a spa treatment in magical jungle surroundings.


Located on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, around 45-minutes’ drive from Merida and a short distance from the Mayan town of Chochola.


  • Spa drawing inspiration from the ancient Mayan culture
  • Steam room & sauna
  • Swimming pool
  • Bar
  • A choice of restaurants offering both regional and international cuisine, using organic ingredients grown in the hotel gardens.


A stay at Chable Resort & Spa is very much about engaging with the Mayan culture and there is plenty to occupy a stay here, both within and away from the hotel. The town of Merida is easily reached for a day trip and has a wonderful selection of museums and colonial architecture to visit. Alternatively hop on a bike and cycle to the Mayan town of Chochola, just a short ride away, there are textile shops and local markets to explore.  Ancient Mayan sites such as Uxmal can also be reached as a day trip.

Additional activities include:

  • Cycling trails
  • Cookery classes
  • Tour the gardens and learn about traditional Mayan gardening techniques
  • Yoga
  • Art workshops
  • Meditation workshops

 Why we like it

The owners of Chable Resort & Spa have remained faithful to the original Hacienda and have retained strong links to the Mayan people and their culture. The spa is built alongside a natural underground reservoir, or cenote, which have long been revered in Mayan culture. The hotel also boasts the largest private tequila collection in the world.
