Located approximately 45 minutes by road to the south of Merida, the Hacienda Temozon was once a private family-run sisal estate, and had its heyday in the 19th century. It has now been restored to a luxurious hotel full of character. The hacienda's exquisitely furnished twenty-six rooms and suites offer guests a real experience of the grandeur and affluence of the past, with much of the original décor having been preserved.
The dining area and lounge is located on a veranda overlooking the gardens and old machinery rooms to the rear, which are lit up at night. With spacious gardens, a spectacular swimming pool and a 17th-century church, this is an ideal place for relaxation or the starting point to discover the surrounding Mayan architectural sites.

"I would like to tell you that it was a wonderful trip. Thank you for organising it so well.
"I found Khiva fascinating. The hotel was very good and within a few minutes walk of the 'old town', which we first saw it lit by moonlight when we arrived and it was a stunning sight.
Mrs Judith King"
"The guide, Valentino, was very efficient, excellent with local knowledge, always pleasant and punctual; an essential requirement. Comparing the desert and Patagonia is like comparing chalk and cheese. All the places had inspirational characteristics. Food and wine were varied and of a high standard.
Mr Stephen Fidler"
"The Taj Mahal was fantastic, the people in India were overwhelming, they made me feel very humble.
Mr David Bonham"

Mr and Mrs Mick"
"A belated thank you so much for the arrangements you made for our recent trip to South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday.
"The whole holiday was excellent. I cannot think how you could improve upon the the service...this holiday was one of the best I can recall. Your ground agents at the airport in Amman for our return flight were excellent. They have obviously a great deal of experience and made the check-in procedure effortless.
Mrs Hilary Dunn"
"The whole holiday was a fantastic experience, made especially so firstly by the fantastic guide, and secondly by the wonderful company of your other guests.
Mr David Carter"
"There were so many [inspirational moments]: the houseboat in Alleppey, the first sight of Kochi harbour at dusk, the Chola temples. An all-round excellent mix.
Dr Andrew Macfarlane"
"We would recommend this holiday to anyone wanting to visit India.
Dr Leslie Wills"
"There were almost too many to mention; Holi festival was amazing, sights in Rajastan were just as I imagined them to be. I appreciated the visits to Bishnoi villages, a good opportunity to see rural life. I also appreciated the excellent room at the Taj Palace in Mumbai. As a single traveller I often find that the rooms I am given are inferior, despite the supplement charged; this was not the case on this holiday.
Ms Angela Carey"
"One of the best holidays we have ever taken with several inspiring moments of which Machu Picchu has to be the top.
Mrs Angela Lawes"
"We have recommended you to all our friends and family. We will definitely travel with you again.
