At the end of a long dirt road weaving through the Yucatan jungle lies Mexico's newest retreat, a destination hotel and spa set in 750 acres of jungle that aims to completely rejuvenate the bodies, minds and souls of world weary travellers. Chable - Exterior Grounds 2 Enter the charmingly dilapidated main gates and you'll be greeted by the oxblood-red 18th century hacienda, the main house of which has been painstakingly restored with hand-made tiled floors, soaring ceilings, wooden beams, and a long veranda overlooking rolling lawns. Out beyond these sit the lush landscaped gardens in which the 40 modern "Ë?casitas', or guest rooms, sit. Chable - Presidential Villa Bathroom Constructed from rough-hewn limestone, dark wood and fields of glass, each has its own pool, hammock, and spacious, lounge-scattered terrace. It would be easy to while away entire days in your private hideaway, but then you'd be missing the point. Because what you really come here for is the holistic spa. Chable - Presidential Exterior Aside from the striking design, what makes Chablà ©'s spa a cut above is that it's built around a cenote, the freshwater limestone sinkholes scattered across the Yucatà ¡n Peninsula, celebrated by Mayans as the entrance to the sacred underworld. And, of course, the sumptuous treatments: everything from regular massages and facials, to chakra therapy, sweat lodges, sound cleansing and sessions with local shamans. You can also practice yoga, walking meditation, tai chi or qigong, or make use of the hydrotherapy circuit with three plunge pools, the saltwater-filled "Ë?floatarium', and the gold tiled steam room cave. Chable - Hacienda Outdoor Lounge In between treatments you can laze in the woven, teardrop-shaped day beds suspended from the trees, dipping in and out of a pool surrounded by crumbling remnants of the original hacienda. You can dine on chef Jorge Vallejo's (of famed Quintonil restaurant in Mexico City, number 22 on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list) light, inventive cuisine at the three restaurants, which all use organic vegetables and herbs grown in Chablà ©'s vast kitchen garden. Or, you can do as any good Mexican would and spend an afternoon enjoying the bar, home to the world's largest tequila collection. Chable - Hacienda Bar   by Nina Karnikowski From about $1,045 per person per night, including breakfast and activities. See How to Get There: Air Canada flies to Mexico City via Vancouver, which takes about 20 hours minus the stopover. Aeromexico then flies to Mà ©rida in two hours, which is a half hour drive from Chablà ©. See Save
