Rosewood San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende is less than 200 miles from Mexico City, but it feels worlds away. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its gorgeous historic architecture, the city has long been a hub for artists and writers—Diego Rivera worked there in the 1950s. Though a favorite destination for American expatriates, San Miguel de Allende is still a relatively undiscovered tourist destination—a fact that’s bound to change now that Rosewood has opened the city’s first five-star resort. The resort features beautifully appointed suites (book the Parroquia for the best private views of the city), multiple restaurants and a world-class spa with treatments like Thermal Waters Wellness, where guests soak in San Miguel’s natural thermal pools and then receive a scrub using local lavender. Guests who want a deeper experience of the city’s heritage can take classes at the famed Instituto de Allende, or opt for a workshop with a local artisan in his studio. Afterwards, sip tequila from the nearby Casa Dragones at the rooftop tapas bar or, better yet, let the resort arrange a special trip to the Casa for an exclusive tasting.
