The rustic-chic rooms at this remote boutique hotel overlook a lush garden dotted with fountains, sparkling pools and cozy firepit nooks. Thirsty? The hotel is a five-minute drive from Barón Balché, one of the best (and most expensive) wineries in the region, where you can swirl, sniff and taste a glass or two of the bold and fruity nebbiolo on the shady terrace.

The modern cabins at this rural boutique hotel have a glass wall along one side so that you can take in the big sky and mountain views from the comfort of your bed. There are enough wineries nearby to keep you busy for weeks, but save time for a wander around the Museo de la Vid y el Vino (Museum of the Vine and Wine) – a 15-minute drive away – to learn about the winemaking process, past and present.

Maglén Resort


The Best Hotels in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico (5)

Turquoise pools, firepits and swinging hammock chairs – this sprawling resort knows how to attract the Instagram crowd. Rooms are equally stylish, with exposed rock, polished concrete and trendy timber cladding, and the on-site Yumano Restaurant serves up photogenic plates of vibrant tostadas and ceviche. Visit nearby Alximia to see an unusual circular winery and sample its viognier and tempranillo.

This compact boutique hotel just off the highway has cozy, light-filled rooms and a pretty courtyard complete with a firepit – ideal for evening sundowners. For the oenophiles, book a tour of Monte Xanic – this boutique winery inspired the winemaking revolution in Mexico after its launch in the late 1980s.

At this heavenly resort, the opulent suites encircle a huge lagoon. Cool off in the palm-lined pool, and tour the 71 acres (29ha) of rolling vineyards with a sommelier as your guide. Share a charcuterie board by the firepit as the sun sets, or tuck into Baja-Yucatán cuisine at Latitud 32, a popular restaurant with panoramic views (don’t miss the Maya-style steak).

Encuentro Guadalupe

The 22 pod-style lofts at Encuentro Guadalupe have been built into a secluded rocky hillside (some incorporate the giant boulders into the buildings themselves). Each one features a terrace with a chiminea and sweeping mountain views. Here for the vino? Several decent wineries – including LA Cetto, one of the oldest in the region – are just a 10-minute drive from the resort.

Don Tomás Viñedo

Boutique Hotel

The Best Hotels in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico (9)

The high-ceilinged cabins at Don Tomás Viñedo are simple, with neat touches such as wine-barrel side tables and sinks. Join a tasting curated by the in-house winemaker, and share a bottle of chardonnay with your loved one on your private terrace. Alternatively, cycle among the vines until you reach nearby Salvio Blanca Restaurant for Mayan-spiced tuna tartare and tacos with home-made kimchi. If you’re here between November and February, visit Ensenada along the coast for the chance to spot migrating gray whales.

Châteaux del Valle

Boutique Hotel

The Best Hotels in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico (10)

Horse lover? Giddy on up to Châteaux del Valle, where you can enjoy private horse-riding tours around the ranch. The modern industrial-style suites and villas have killer valley views. If you’re tired of the same old wine tastings, put your taste buds to the test with the sensory experience at nearby Rondo del Valle – where you’ll be served wine and artisan chocolate while blindfolded.


Boutique Hotel

The Best Hotels in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico (11)

What happens when Finnish style meets Mexican hospitality? Lumi, a collection of 10 uber-stylish, child- and pet-friendly rooms, along with glamping options, in the heart of Mexico’s wine country. The minimalist Nordic rooms housed in upcycled shipping containers include underfloor heating and string-lit rooftop decks, and there’s a shared sauna and hot tub for a dose of traditional Finnish wellness. Hungry? Try the ever-changing six-course tasting menu at Once Pueblos, a Michoacán-inspired restaurant just a few minutes away by car.

Ojo Azul Resort

Resort, Luxury

The Best Hotels in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico (12)

Here to unwind? Book a stay at one of Ojo Azul’s elegant cabanas with vineyard views, and spend your days lounging by the pool, practicing your downward dog and indulging in the occasional massage. Oenophiles should book a private tasting in the hotel’s wine cave, paired with dishes from the restaurant above, or head to neighboring Adobe Guadalupe, the first woman-owned winery in the region, for a tasting in the Persian-style cellar.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
