Hacienda El Carmen

Three centuries ago, it was known as the Hacienda de Santa Maria de Miraflores and in due course this was the founding hacienda of the Convento Del Carmen in 1722.

The manor of El Carmen bears the testimony of the people that inhabited it and appreciated the value of its history and architecture.

Its archway, corridors and the beautiful chapel provide the right mood for meditation, helping anyone to find peace and harmony with nature.

The lobby and Don Diego’s tertulias salon (chat gatherings) are another example of the carefully restored spaces that portray the marriage of Mexico's colonial settings and the practicality that modern age demands, thus offering an environment of excellent taste and elegance.

Enjoy the glamorous historical surroundings while enjoying the relaxing experience of peace and tranquility with their exquisite neuron-sedating massages, delightfully combined with a red wine balneotherapy and the relaxing sounds of water and birds. All of their treatments are complemented with delicate hydrotherapy rituals that will make you feel like the most important and pampered person on earth.

Begin your ritual with detoxifying steam combined with eucalyptus inhalation-therapy. Alternate heat waves with the pressure shower and try their warm indoor jacuzzi ending with a cold shower. Rest at the specially designed tranquility areas and chill with chlorophyll water and a refreshing fruit drink.

All of the services include the hydrotherapy circuit (30 min.)

Go back in time and experience the best that Mexico has to offer.
