Hacienda Xcanatun was built in the 18th century to cultivate corn, raise horses and other carriage animals, and was converted into a sisal-growing and processing hacienda in the mid-19th century.
In January of 2000, Hacienda Xcanatun opened as a luxurious 18-suite hotel, after five years of intense work to rescue its buildings from the total deterioration and abandon in which they were left in the 1980s.
Recovery efforts were aided by experts in Mayan and Colonial architecture, who developed plans to recover as much as possible from the existing buildings. They worked to preserve all of the original concepts of space, ambience, and material, even when changes had to be made or a new building had to be built to offer our guests the highest level of comfort and functionality.
The result is a mix of the historic, traditional, and contemporary elements, so that guests can relax and enjoy the unique surroundings.
Note that there are no TVs in the suites at Hacienda Xcanatun - this is a place to switch off. A place to read, recharge, relax; to sleep, rest, and dream...
