For groups planning meetings in Mexico, one of the best kept secrets is the number of beautiful boutique, pasados, and haciendas that are perfect for meetings. These hidden gems can be found through out the country.
I have been fortunate to spend the last 5 days in Morelos. Today, we'll look at 2 luxury boutique hotels in Tepoztlan with meeting facilities for small groups, gourmet cuisine, and surprisingly affordable rates.
Posada Del Tepozteco, a family owned posada with 22 guests rooms, provides breathtaking views of the mountains, Tepoztlan below, and Cuernavaca 1 hour away.
The terraces and gardens are available for luncheons, private events, corporate events, and weddings for 10 - 300 guests. There is a small meeting room with a great view of the mountains. Three other guests rooms and a large meeting room are under construction.
El Sibarita, the gourmet restaurant onsite, offers culinary delights infused with local flavors.
The posada has paddle tennis courts, a swimming pool, library, and spa offering massages and Temazcal treatments.
Casa Fernanda Boutique Hotel
Casa Fernanda is a family owned boutique hotel with just 12 guest rooms. Situated in Tepoztlan, this picturesque setting surrounded by mountains is just 2 hours from Mexico City.
El Ciruelo, the meeting room overlooking one of the gardens that has glass on 3 sides and a capacity of 25.
The guest rooms are modern with with wood accents. Bathrooms are spacious with large tubs and separate showers with rain showerheads. On the lower level, some bathrooms over look a private, secluded courtyard with hammock, table and chairs, and a mandarin trees.
La Veladora, the onsite restaurant, offers beautifully presented and delicious gourmet cuisine. Dishes are prepared with fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs from local producers and the hotel's 3 meticulously landscaped gardens with fountains and sculptures by local artists.
On the rooftop, Terrace El Mirador, which offers panoramic views of the mountains surrounding Tepoztlan is perfect for receptions.
During downtime, guests can book treatments in the spa or relax in the pool.
