We were lucky to try out the great Coqui Coqui Tulum boutique hotel in 2013 before their beach front property got taken back by the Mexican government who wanted to cash in on the growing popularity of Tulum. Fast forward to 2019 and Tulum is dead (way too much tourism with new hotels and construction everywhere, no more exclusive and quiet) – Coqui Coqui kept all their other stunning Mexican residence & spa, like Valladolid featured here, all while opening a few more locations worldwide.
Their haven hidden on top of a perfumery (their fragrances & spa products are pretty amazing) in a sleepy Yucatan town where you can relax in the thatch-roofed spa – with wild honey based treatments – or lounge in the floral fragrant courtyard.
Paying homage to this legacy, while reviving and continuing the unique history of Valladolid, Coqui Coqui founder & perfumer Nicolas Malleville became completely enthralled by the beauty, folklore and cultural history he discovered here.
The one room is simple but elegant, with colorful floor tiles and the final flourish of chandeliers.
