Set in the beautiful countryside of Yucatan State sits Hacienda Cuch-Balam. A beautiful, old colonial property surrounded by ancient fields of Hennequin, this beautifully restored property is a diamond in the rough.
Lovingly brought back to life, Hacienda Cuch-Balam has been modernized, incorporating solar panels and water recycling tanks enabling you to reduce your carbon emissions whilst visiting or working and truly bringing it into the future.
Hacienda Cuch-Balam lies 10 minutes from the beautiful Cenotes of Cuzama, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state of Yucatan, and 25 minutes from Mayapan, a smaller yet very important version of Chichen Itza.
Hidden away, Hacienda Cuch-Balam is a property of 45 hectares with the main area enclosed by beautiful stone walls. The 8,000 m2 of of landscaped gardens, lunch goers and visitors will be delighted to be surrounded by this beautiful countryside as well as being provided with organic produce coming directly from the grounds.
Entering the main house through large front doors you will find yourself in the main hub. Originally two large rooms now converted, by an archway, into a large open plan living space, maximizing light and airflow.
Off this large space are two rooms, which could be used as bedrooms, and off these are another two smaller rooms. One has been converted into a fresh, modern en suite bathroom. The other is currently being used as an office but could easily be changed into another en suite. Each room has views of the landscaped gardens.
The two cabanas in the grounds each have their own private terrace, garden and en-suite bathroom. Using modern design with local materials the effect is quite beautiful and something that has not so far been seen here in the Yucatan.
The Cenote, sitting less than 20 meters from the main house, provides Hacienda Cuch-Balam with most of its water. Taking advantage of, yet knowing that this is a precious resource, specially designed water recycling tanks have been installed allowing maximum usage.
The main house has also been fitted with an underground rain water tank to take advantage of the rainy season here in the Yucatan, allowing over half the years supply of water to come from the heavens. The property really has been re-designed to maximize every available en site resource using up to date innovative technology.
Solar panels have been used, placed on the roofs they allow every light, fan and all other electrical appliances to be switched on for five whole days. Batteries, inverters and all the controls are stored in the waterproof bodega, keeping equipment at their best. Solar water heaters have also been installed and provide more than enough hot water for every need.
In one of the corrals immediate to the main house lies the organic vegetable garden. Planted in the traditional Mayan way of making raised beds out of wood and using handmade pesticides and fertilizers, the organic vegetables have been a success with the locals and those living in Mérida, the closest city.
Produce from the Hacienda is being used in the Remixto monthly brunches as well as being sold weekly in a hamper style service; this is a growing part of the business. With demand growing for organic vegetables and meat in Mérida, this is just another great service that is new to the area.
Offering a wide range of services Hacienda Cuch-Balam truly is unique. Rent the property entirely or choose bed and breakfast, weddings and other events, medical recovery holidays and five different retreat/tour holidays.
Mérida, a beautiful colonial city, is only an hour away and has easy flight connections to the States, Canada and Europe. Hacienda Cuch-Balam could not be located in a better area. Several Mayan ruins, Chichen Itza, Mayapan, Uxmal to name a few, sit within easy traveling distance as well as other tourist attractions such as Celestun, Rio Lagartos and Campeche.
Hacienda Cuch-Balam truly is a beautiful and magical place, perfect for those wanting to experience the true essence of the Yucatan.
