The Chablé Resort and Spa are located in the Yucatan Peninsula, 25 minutes from the historic city of Méridaan area of Mexico. Perfect for the sophisticated traveler, the area is famous for its rich culture, traditions, ancient history, exquisite cuisine, vegetation and heavenly scenery; with the legendary Mayan ruins located within a 30 to 60 km radius.
The Chablé Resort and Spa
As a wellness resort, the Chablé Resort and Spa takes a uniquely holistic approach. This new five-star intimate retreat features luxurious villas, an expansive presidential suite and a 19th c. century traditional “Hacienda” completely restored to reflect the elegance and sophistication of the past.
Chablé offers 38 casitas and two expansive villas, each with a private pool. Each Casita is purposely situated within the lush gardens where nature can be enjoyed to its fullest.
The original 19th century walls of the working hacienda serve as the framework for every casita, and incorporates modern touches, warm woods and traditional Mayan architecture to make Chablé a true work of art.
Every room has a view and every view is a living part of the Hacienda.
The spacious Casitas set in the Mayan jungle perfectly frame nature. They are contemporary, with local rich woods, stone and glass walls allowing guests to be in contact with nature while maintaining all the comforts.

The spa is a word-class facility with a uniquely holistic approach. It is built around a natural “Cenote”, which serves as an extension of the spa.
The Chablé Spa provides an intimate setting of tranquility, sophistication, and customization.
The setting and elements used in authentic Mayan Ceremony, allows for a deep connection and profoundly moving experience as an initiation into the Chablé Healing Culture.
A space where ancient mysticism blends with modern curiosity to bring about a new vocabulary of well-being.
The Cenote is a sacred site and source of restoration for the body and soul. The Mayans had a deep respect and reverence for Cenotes. They believe that cenotes are entrances to the Mayan underworld, portals to the subconscious and afterlife, and to communicate with their gods.
The cenote at Chablé Spa is the focal point of the healing journeys, providing the curative foundations and tranquil setting for development of our spa experiences. Great care is taken to acknowledge the significance of the cenote and it’s guardians, to tread carefully and respect nature, and to “never insult the waters.”
At Chablé, to further enhance guests’ experience they provide activities across four areas: Wellness & Fitness, Cultural, Gastronomic, Acitivites in Chocholá and Its Surroundings.
Every day they offer a different program with a minimum of three activities focused in awakening a different emotion, knowledge and sens. Each guest may choose up to two daily activities per day from the complimentary list or select an exclusive activity at an additional fee.
Chablé’s culinary offer was designed by the acclaimed Chef Jorge Vallejo, who was recently awarded as the #12 best Chef in the world, and #1 in Mexico, by the “World’s 50 best restaurants”.
The gastronomic experiences at the resort consist of three restaurants: Ixi ‘Im, Ki ‘ol & a Spa Restaurant- which is based on organic & seasonal cuisine mostly sourced from the on-site traditional Mayan Gardens.
At the heart of Chablé is a traditional Maya garden, recreating harvesting techniques that have not been used in over a century.
The garden consists of raised garden beds made from local woods, and constructed using no man-made elements. Each bed is filled with organic soil and seeds harvested through traditional Maya methods by Chable’s resident Maya horticulturist.
Upon request, guests will have the opportunity to partake in the gardening process during their stay.
