The rustle of the wind cradling the whispers of the leaves on the trees, and the cha-cha-cha of the birds completed the embrace of the private splash pool from my hammock at Chablé Resort in the Yucatán.
This new luxury resort located approximately thirty minutes to Mérida, offers an escape from the ordinary. A place for wellness and rejuvenation, Chablé is complete with a five-star restaurant, wonder filled spa, and lush tropical pool.
As I dined, the song Besame Mucho, played softly in the background, bringing a smile to my face. This island-like oasis is in the heart of Mayan passed times, and is influenced by the the healing energies of cenotes. Set inland on the grounds of a former Hacienda, the resort boasts attention to details. Incorporating old machinery into its design, while taking note of the modern luxuries to make guests feel special, including a selection of Mexican-made delights in the villa and a Sonos sound system.
Greeted with a refreshing chaya potion and down to earth Yucatán smile, I found myself immediately feeling connected to the delicate balance of nature and modern lines. The 100+ year old trees and the sob of the frogs mixed with world class accommodations was the perfected blend of nature vs. nurture.
Chablé Resort is spiritual, meets ancient, meets modern influence. It is a place to disappear off the grid. A place to swim in a cenote, enjoy spa treatments, or to simply relax or reconnect. The resort’s website suggests mystery, however the feeling is much different. The Yucatán sun kissing your skin, elegant culinary experiences, and call of the conch shell is much more treasure-filled heaven-like, than mysterious.
World-renowned Chef, Jorge Vallejo’s, Ixi’im, offers an innovative blend of technique, style, and area familiar herbs, fruits, and vegetables providing unique flavors to the palate. Suspending any thoughts, accept flavors and atmosphere, were the foie gras, deer tartare, and mame split. (Side note mamey is my favorite fruit from the Yucatán)
In addition to its culinary masterpieces, the bravado of the resort, the largest tequila collection in the world. I highly recommend a scheduling a tasting and learning about pairings to identify with the notes by holding the glass to the heart as you inhale the aromas of the spirit.
Chable was born over a decade ago. From conception to construction, the resort has been in the making for a dozen years. It differs from Mérida’s Hacienda’s and Boutique Hotels as it is truly in a class of its own.
A visit to Chablé deserves a few days to escape for your well-being. It is away from the salty sea air of the coast and hustle and bustle of Mérida. If it is wellness you are seeking, Chablé Resort may be the perfect place for you to embrace some R&R. For more info, www.chableresort.com.
