Artesana, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Bald Mountain Development and Rosewood Hotels commissioned VITA to provide site planning and landscape design for Artesana, the 5.7 hectare hotel villa site in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. This extraordinary location is four blocks from San Miguel’s defining Parroquilla Cathedral and the Main Plaza. The challenge is to include a 100-room boutique spa and resort—designed as a historic Casona—within a pedestrian street. This street is the setting for some 77 private villas facing the interior gardens and pool and the adjacent streets. Parking is underground and the resort includes an event lawn, several dining and private lounging areas (both indoor and outside) and a multi-level pool complex available to both hotel guests and residential owners. Within easy walking distance of the Plaza, the style of Artesana is meant to reflect and be part of one of Mexico’s best known colonial treasures.
