Reviewed 18 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

If you are searching for an exotic and out-of-the-way place in an area steeped in history-- this is it. At one time, Merida (the capital city of the Yucatan) was the wealthiest cities in the world. Throughout the surrounds, wealthy land owners, farmed, harvested, then manufactured their large hemp (hennequen) plants from their plantations into rope. Giant crates of the stuff (fiber) were shipped throughout the world from the Mexican port of SISAL and used by literally ALL sailing ships and fishers of that time. Because the harvesting required such large equipment, HUGE buildings were constructed by native people (Mayans) to house the machines, and stunning homes built for the extended families and friends of the wealthy land owners. However, once nylon was introduced, the hemp industry went belly-up and most of the estates were vacated-- many of them reduced to rubble and quickly hidden in the jungle's thick overgrowth. About 10-15 years ago, architects and artists began coming to the Yucatan, and have started to rebuild these gorgeous estates.

Hacienda Sac Chich is one of those. With an eye for simple elegance and sheik design, proprietor Cyndy Berger has created an incredible place to host a special party, wedding, or-- just to visit and learn about the Yucatan and Hennequen. It's a day's trip to Uxmal or Chichanitza and there are lots of cenotes (fresh water springs) where you can swim. Or-- you can might choose to lolligag by the beautiful fresh water pool amongst banana and date palms.

One aspect that makes this property so unique, is that about a footbal field's distance apart from the main structures, is a smaller ubre modern casa that sleeps 2 couples (complete with its own pool, 2 baths, patio, star-gazing roof and living area), so you won't have to see another soul. It's won several architectural awards.

My husband and I were invited to a party there for a friend's 60th birthday. Believe me, it was a tough crowd of prominent NY designers. Well-- everyone was completely blown away and I know you will be too-- whatever the occasion.
