The vibrancy found throughout communal spaces is juxtaposed in the 16 guest accommodations, where a sense of serenity is established through elegant simplicity.
The interiors were designed by Grupo Habita's Carlos Couturier and Architect João Boto Cairo and feature custom furniture handmade by local artisans. Concrete interiors are complimented with woods, suede, resin, and metal finishes adapted to each individual room.
Four different room types include:
The hotel's restaurant offers a peaceful and relaxing ambiance with soft lighting under the shade of trees. Chef Saúl Carranza has been working with us at Grupo Habita for over a decade. His menu at the restaurant is certain to surprise diners in the best possible way.
With less focus on tradition and more emphasis on flavor, freshness, and unexpected textures, his signature dishes, all created with local ingredients, can be enjoyed on the ground-floor patio as well as at the large communal table on the roof, where Saul and his team cook on an open grill.
Below our ground-level patio, guests can experience a truly unique Otro SPA, where massages, aromatherapy, and other indigenous treatments are on offer alongside a heated 20ft ø plunge pool, lit naturally by an overhead porthole.
On the hotel’s rooftop, you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of Oaxaca City – Here, the magical and colorful sunsets reflect on the stone facade of the Ex Convento de Santo Domingo. The endemic green limestone floors contrast with the solid brick, and recall the original walls at Santo Domingo – complimented by an array of flora, the terrace feels calm and peaceful given it’s city-center location. A 30ft pool that runs down the center of the retreat offers guests the opportunity to swim freely directly opposite the Santo Domingo church . Otro Bar offers some of the best mezcal cocktails in the city. The drinks selection combines Grupo Habita favourites with seasonal mixes to keep our regulars surprised.
The experience on the rooftop is complemented by a large communal table and a menu focused on products cooked over charcoal. The space, dedicated for 24 people, offers a shared local gastronomic experience with views towards the Ex Convento de Santo Domingo.
Located beside our ground-level patio is a hybrid space that guests can use for co-working, reading or meetings. This room is also used for film screenings, live music and local cultural events.
