JET SET EXPERIENCES: Viva Mexico! Top Wellness Retreat

“Indulge your senses while restoring your spirit” is your only call to action here. Nestled just outside Merida in the heart of the Yucatan, Chable offers a sanctuary to journey inward. This Zen wellness retreat bridges ancient culture with contemporary design. A 32,000-square-foot spa offers butler services, thalassotherapy circuits, and traditional Mayan touches.

Don’t miss three temazcals and an herbal remedy boutique where ancient natural recipes are concocted. Whether gazing upon the water lilies and the healing sacred waters of the cenote during morning meditation, admiring the expansive grounds of this historical estate on a bike ride, relishing the privacy of your 2,200-square-foot casita (only 38 in total, each with a private pool and outdoor shower), or savoring the organic and seasonal spa cuisine sourced from the onsite gardens, Chable delivers an expansive experience. Top the day with one of the 3,000 rare tequilas housed at Ixi’Im, which showcases menus crafted by Chef Jorge Vallejo of Quintonil (recently ranked #22 on “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants”).
