Green & Chic ~ Azucar, Monte Gordo, Veracruz, Mexico

Azucar_Veracruz_MX_azucar08_1192648905_864856Another polished jewel from the über-stylistic hands of Grupo Habita, the avant-garde team behind Mexico’s chicest hotels, Azucar is set against a backdrop of exotic jungle, blue lagoons and sugar plantations, 3-hours from Veracruz, in the quaint beach town of Monte Gordo, on Mexico’s Gulf coast.

 

Azucar_Veracruz_MX_mexico-pic1Azucar_Veracruz_MX_azucar03_1192648869_864855Azucar perfectly embodies its name (Spanish for sugar), celebrating outdoor living and leisurely pace. 20 thatched, whitewashed haciendas with pared-down, pale interiors, where bedside lighting comes from candlelit niches, and simple timber and reclaimed driftwood furnishings create a gentle rustic look. Idle away hours in your own hammock on the terrace, or simply chill on vibrant-coloured ottomans or dusky-pink cushions beside the curvy pool.

Rejuvenate yourself under the open-air rainfall shower, then enjoy a meal in the relaxed restaurant to the sounds of drum-and-base Latin American chill tunes. Livingetc recommends the catch of the day and the authentic, tasty tortillas.

As a beach-front property, you don’t have to venture far to feel the sea water. For more activities, rent a bike, take a yoga class, or opt for a relaxing massage at the holistic spa. And if you need to get your adrenaline going, go further afield to take in the scenery via horseback riding, rafting or kayaking.

If history and ruins are your thing, you can explore the 9th-century archaeological site in the pre-Columbian city El Tajin, or take in the wildlife on a boat trip along the mangrove swamps.
