Rosas y Xocolate, Merida – Boutique Hotel

Rosas y Xocolate, Merida – Boutique Hotel


July 4, 2018

One of the benefits of my job is that I get to travel for work. Not too frequently and not always to exotic places, but last month I got to visit Merida (for the first time in 3 years) for a work trip. Truthfully, I was nervous to go because the last time I came back with (TMI) bubble gut and I was not looking forward to another round. Thankfully, that didn’t happen on this trip (disclosure: I purposefully didn’t eat vegan out of fear of Montezuma’s Revenge Part II and, therefore, ate only cooked food which included meat…) and I left Mexico unscathed.

Right. Now that the gross stuff is out of the way… I decided to stay the weekend after my work meetings and explore Merida. I put myself up at a couple of boutique hotels in the area and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I’d never stayed in a boutique hotel before – I typically stay at a hotel or an AirBnb (like these). My experience in Merida changed my perspective on travel and I refuse to lodge any other way if possible! Boutique hotels for the win!

Merida is such a colourful city but even Rosas y Xocolate stands out from the main street.

The first night I stayed at Rosas y Xocolate (yes, Roses & Chocolate) which was an entirely pink boutique hotel!

There were two walls in the entire hotel that had yellow and it contrasted so beautifully with the pink.

I was so fortunate to have a beautiful view outside my window… even with the rain that came!

My room was splendid but I think my favourite part by far was the bathroom…

Now this is how you switch off, relax, listen to the birds and soak in the sweet aroma of Merida.

I bumped into the owner twice during my stay and he was adamant that I reach out if I needed anything. Everyone here was so incredibly friendly and made my stay a total pleasure. I’d highly recommend staying at Rosas y Xocolate if you visit Merida. Also, how ridiculously Instagrammable is this place?! You’re welcome.

Love,
