We’re big fans of Grupo Habita (see our recent article on Discovering Mexico City). So we’re especially delighted to hear that the collection will be expanding in December with the debut of the Hotel Escondido, a “beach hut village” on the pristine Pacific coast north of Puerto Escondido in Mexico. A member of Design Hotels, the rustic-chic hotel is expected to capture the laid-back vibe of this hot surfing destination.
Designed with a contemporary twist on the traditional palapa beach hut, the 16 bungalows feature locally sourced wood floors, private plunge pools, and canvas hammocks. Amenities include in-room massages, cuisine crafted from the finest regional ingredients, and a bar. Beyond surfing, the destination offers a treasure trove of recreational activities—from bird watching to kayaking.
Founded by Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, Grupo Habita is currently comprised of 13 hotels including the Hotel Americano in New York and la purificadora in Puebla, Mexico. For more information, visit www.grupohabita.mx
