Grupo Xcaret’s second property opened in July 2021, is a luxury hotel offering guests experiences that allow them to live art from its creation. Playfully honoring Mexican art and committed to sustainability, the eco-integrated design and architecture of the hotel combines design and nature in each of the 900 adult-only suites. The hotel pays homage to Mexican art in its various iterations, highlighting the most important symbols and artistic expressions of Mexico’s culture through the creation of six distinct Casas: Casa de los Artistas (Artists House), Casa del Diseño (Design House), Casa de la Pirámide (Pyramid House), Casa de la Música (Music House), Casa de la Paz (Peace House) and Casa del Patrón (Chief’s House), where art is lived through workshops focused on painting, textiles, dance, weaving, and pottery and where guests can enjoy the best views of the Mexican Caribbean and the Mayan jungle from various rooftops, each one offering a unique experience.
