Rosewood Puebla

Rosewood Puebla

Rosewood is putting Puebla, Mexico on the map. The hotel is housed in a set of historic buildings, restored with a beautiful blend of traditional and contemporary décor. The city and people of Puebla were the primary source of inspiration behind Rosewood’s 4th Mexican property. The downtown area is a designated Unesco World Heritage site, with a rich history and culinary traditions. It’s the perfect place for travelers seeking an enriching experience in a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere.

ROOMS: The hotel is housed in a set of historical buildings from different eras. It’s filled with 78 rooms and suites, surrounding a beautiful private courtyard. Each room is residential in style, showcasing traditional craftsmanship. The décor pays tribute to the region’s heritage, with ceramic floors, colorful tiles, and local artwork. Bathrooms have large soaking tubs and heated floors.

POOL: The rooftop pool is lined with lounge chairs overlooking the colorful buildings of Puebla. Take in the stunning views of the city and nearby volcanoes as you sip on a margarita, eating Mexican tapas.

SPA: The Sense spa has four treatment rooms with a wide range of personalized services. The menu was inspired by centuries of ancient traditions and healing techniques and they use a variety of local ingredients. The goal is to find a harmonic balance between mind, body and soul.  

RESTAURANT & BAR: Pasquinel Bistrot is the hotel’s signature restaurant. You can dine casually in the garden courtyard or opt for an elegant experience in the private dining room. Café Azul Talavera is a more laidback, street-side café with a European feel.

BAR: Bar Los Lavaderos has a handsome and sophisticated feel to it, the go-to place for a creative cocktail. There’s also a rooftop bar with breathtaking views of the city, serving Mexican tapas, local charcuterie and margaritas.
