Chablé Maroma Mexico
Floating amid a dense emerald thicket on Mexico’s chic Riviera Maya, Chablé sets the bar when it comes to striking a balance between luxury and nature. It puts local culture front and centre, with open-sided thatched casitas creeping up the hillside in a swathe of rustic-luxe. Each has its own private grounds and features xucun stone, marble and plenty of glass, alongside a traditional Mayan colour scheme, spacious living area, hammock and outdoor shower. Below, a slinky pool and 200m of celestial- white sand invite with the promise of lazy days. Local ancestral rituals abound at the truly enormous spa. Elsewhere, one of the country’s top chefs, Jorge Vallejo, is behind the fine culinary offering , which takes its cue from what’s yielded from the land and ocean surrounding, with true Mexican flavours. If you don’t leave this place feeling thoroughly revived, we’ll eat our sombrero.
