When I stayed at Casa de Sierra Nevada in San Miguel de Allende last year, there was a metal construction fence beside the swimming pool blocking off one section that was under construction. That former 1890′s house—Casa Palma—is now open, with six new suites.
Guests probably won’t even notice that this part is new, since it incorporates the same impeccable styling and details in the other rooms and suites, but here’s the official lowdown from Orient-Express:
All six suites have private patios with outdoor heated plunge pools, while the Presidential Suite boasts an outdoor living area as well as a 900 square-foot roof top terrace that has a barbeque grill, vast granite counters and a bar area, plus breath-taking views of the city center and the Parroquia.
Two suites also include outdoor showers while all of them have central air conditioning and heating, underground heated bathroom floors, oversized shower area, a copper tub, flat screen TVs and iPod docking stations.
