Only a short drive from downtown, travelers happily retire to their quiet, peaceful space at Hacienda los Laureles Hotel & Spa. Secluded in the privacy of its extensive gardens of exotic flowers, mango, nisperales and cypress trees. To add to the natural peacefulness of the grounds, a symphony of singing birds can be heard throughout the foliage.

Surrounded by mountains and forests, this early 1800's hacienda offers guests the flavor of grand Mexican style in the unique ambiance created by its magnificent porches and columns, refined furnishings and exceptional service.

This inspiring scenery is matched by the decor inside, where each corner has been carefully designed to ensure space and functional elegance with a streak of colorful Oaxaca in the paintings on the walls.

Guestrooms at Lo Laureles are decorated in fine wood furniture and light colored fabrics that lend a serene and soothing mood to fully enjoy the peacefulness of this luxurious and comfortable hotel. The spacious 23 guest rooms (including Suites) recreate the gentle atmosphere of the elegant Haciendas of the colonial times, with every terrace and patio overlooking the well-manicured garden.

There are plenty of wonderful dining venues in Oaxaca and “Los Cipreses”, the hotel restaurant is among the finest. A talented team of well-trained kitchen and restaurant staff create traditional Oaxacan cuisine, Mexican favorites and fine international specialties with emphasis on local ingredients, fresh fruit and vegetables from the local farms.

The owners have made a point of ensuring leisure and offer an array of services from conferences on the myths and healings in Oaxaca to relaxing Temazcal steam bath, which will cleanse your body and soul.

After a refreshing break at Los Laureles, you will be ready to explore the mythical city of Oaxaca.
