Las Alcobas

Las Alcobas

****

Immaculately groomed, modern-minded and cosmopolitan (and that's just the guests), Las Alcobas hotel in plush Polanco is an elegant ensemble of rosewood, marble and leather. Its suity side keeps jetsetting laptop-lovers happy, but this rarefied retreat knows how to spoil you too, with a little spa, modern Mexican fine dining and anything's-possible service. Las Alcobas certainly means business, but never at the expense of pleasure.

Highlights:

  • Steps from Polanco district’s high-end boutiques, restaurants and bars

  • 24-hour butler service and hi-tech in-room gadgetry

  • Dulce Patria offers flavourful traditional Mexican cuisine

Packing tips:

Be all business: bring your it-bag and sharpest city-slicker looks. Forget your Dior shades and pick-up a new pair at the nearby boutique.

Dress code:

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

When Mr Smith’s work schedule took him to Mexico City and my business landed me in New York, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for a weekend rendezvous south of the border. Also, how often do you get to toss out Mexico as your meeting point? Not nearly often enough, I’d say.

I succeeded in twisting Mr Smith’s arm (both, actually) and we soaked up some much needed sun in tranquil Tulum (a heavenly story for another time) and capped the extended weekend jaunt with a stop-off in Mexico City.

Landing sunburnt at midnight following delays from Tulum (a two-hour flight) isn’t the most comfor

Dining information

Restaurant:

The hotel has two restuarants. Chef Martha Ortiz keeps the fiesta going at Dulce Patria, serving a lunch and dinner menu of traditional Mexican cuisine with modern flourishes. Inlaid die-cut flowers line the entrance and doors and the dining room is bathed in vibrant reds. Lime green and chilli-red sauces are swirled onto plates. Tuck into multi-coloured quesadillas stuffed with zucchini blossoms, Oaxaca cheese and pine nuts lashed with salsa sultana, plantain-encrusted duck in a black mole or red and green pepper-studded red snapper prepared Veracruz-style. Wash it all down with a tangy margarita or a potent mezcal. Contemporary and cosmoplitan in style, chef Justin Ermini has created an equally inspired international, farm-to-table driven menu at the intimate Anatol restaurant.
