MERIDA, Mexico, February 3, 2018: Looking for a great idea for a family getaway or a way to disappear for a few days with a group of friends? Hacienda Petac in Merida, Mexico might just be the answer.
Now transformed into an all-inclusive resort, this beautifully restored colonial 17th century estate sits on 250 private acres. The Hacienda offers the intimacy of a private villa combined with the services of a luxury hotel.
There’s also an added twist that makes it unique.
Hacienda Petac offers private villas for four to 14 guests
You can book the entire villa with a minimum of four guests up to a maximum of 14 for a four-night stay. The entire villa becomes your own personal estate.
Hacienda Petac offers accommodations in four separate buildings featuring a total of seven spacious bedrooms, all of which have private baths and polished, native stone showers.
The property also includes a heated pool, spa, gym, game room, teaching kitchen, and media salon. There’s even a chapel, just in case you happen to fall in love and want to get married.
Hacienda Petac is a blissful retreat at its finest.
Most activities center around the heart of the villa known as Casa Principal, which features the dining room, bar, library and numerous shady terraces. The grounds are crisscrossed with walking trails that appeal to hikers and bird watchers.
Sun-worshippers can luxuriate at the heated pool in lounge chairs crafted from local stone or nap in hammocks with a nearby garden as a backdrop.
Visit Mayan ruins with Hacienda Petac excursions
Nestled in the center of some of the most spectacular Mayan ruins in Mexico, Hacienda Petac offers a choice of excursions as part of its package. Excursions include a visit to the Mayan archaeological site of Uxmal, the colonial city of Merida, the flamingo colony at the wetlands reserve, or a jaunt to the Gulf Coast beaches.
The attentive Mayan staff treats each guest as a family member with friendly, efficient service that magically washes away the clutter of the outside world like an incoming tide sweeping across a beach.
Hacienda Petac’s Friends’ Getaway All-Inclusive Package
The all-inclusive package includes four nights exclusive use of the accommodations. Inclusive means all meals, snacks, non-alcoholic and alcoholic house brand beverages are always available. A guided outing to Merida or the ancient Mayan city of Uxmal or one spa treatment per guest are available.
There are optional cooking classes, Wi-Fi internet access and full-service on-site staff, which includes a manager/concierge.
Also included is one round-trip transfer per group from Merida International Airport to Hacienda Petac. Merida is served by United Airlines, American, Aeromexico and Westjet from Canada. From the airport, it’s approximately 30 minutes driving time to the villa. Airport transfers can also be arranged from Cancun for an additional fee.
Families traveling with children may substitute an activity for the youngsters instead of a spa treatment. Among the most popular children’s programs are a Mayan treasure scavenger hunt. But there is also piñata making and cooking classes. In the cooking classes kids roll out their own tortillas and mash up fruit to make smoothies.
The package price for the offer from April 15 through October 15, 2018 is $1,350 per person plus 16% tax.
The staff offers cooking classes in the hacienda’s state-of-the-art teaching kitchen. The spa offers a Mayan-inspired hot stone massage or a warm honey and rose body wrap.
Afterward, since the place is all your own, invite the gang to join you for some aromatherapy in the cavernous Jacuzzi.
Under the stars at Hacienda Petac
In the evenings, cocktails and dinner served by candlelight on the terrace – often under the stars – offers a spectacular and romantic way to end your day. Enjoy after dinner starlight conversation, or head to the game room for some competitive fun. The media room offers a great selection of films to watch as you sip another round of margaritas.
Most of all, Hacienda Petac offers private hospitality at its finest with its bold, affordable and exclusive all-inclusive concept.
Proof positive of the old saying “Mi casa es su casa.”
