Attention boutique hotel lovers! We’ve found your next gorgeous getaway in Playa del Carmen on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Pure, pretty & peaceful, Hotel La Semilla with only nine bedrooms feels like a breath of fresh air in the buzzing Mexican beach town of Playa del Carmen. The feeling of a true home-away-from-home is unlike anything else you can find in the area of Playa del Carmen. Brimming with style, tiny Hotel La Semilla is one-of-a-kind and full of personality.

Nestled between the jungles and beaches of Playa del Carmen, this townhouse-style boutique B&B is located just off the famous 5th Avenue, once a remote area of Playa del Carmen and now the trendiest part of this Mexican town. The hippie chic honeypot of Tulum with its Mayan Ruins is only an hour away by car.

Don’t expect five-star facilities like a swimming pool, gym, spa or hotel restaurant at Hotel La Semilla. This adults-only bolthole (sorry kids, this one’s not for you) in Mexico combines seamless service & serious style for an exceptional experience. Exactly why we picked this laidback-luxe jewel with natural roots and a Mexican flare from Alexis Schärer from Switzerland and his Mexican wife, Angie. After gaining experience at several luxury hotels around the world, including New York’s Plaza Athénée, they decided to create the ultimate boutique hotel in Playa del Carmen. Hotel La Semilla’s intimate feel is heightened by the warmth of the very passionate, creative & spiritual owners. They exactly know how to provide the feel-good factor – they’re natural hosts.

Thanks to their keen aesthetic sense, Hotel La Semilla’s design concept is a daring yet ultra-stylish mishmash of vintage furniture from Mexico, quirky flea market treasures and local Mexican art, cultivated from a from a life of globe-hopping. It’s a feast for the eyes and worth an Instagram shot or three. Without a doubt, design conscious hedonists will be in seventh heaven here.

As for the bedrooms, they are unique, inspiring and extremely good-looking, but a little bit on the smaller side. Furthermore, the bathrooms can be better and some things like the place to store your luggage are not that practical. Televisions are also not available in the hotel rooms, all part of their down-to-earth bohemian philosophy. We don’t mind though, because among the many little extras included in the room rates are the provided bikes, water, cold beers or glasses of wine plus snacks in the evening, a daily newsletter, homemade cookies, a list of specifically chosen hidden spots in Playa del Carmen and much more. Fancy some extra space and a terrace? The 30m2 Suite Terraza, including an outdoor bathtub or shower amidst lush foliage, is well-worth the extra splurge.

Super fresh, balanced and healthy, Hotel La Semilla’s breakfast is served in the open-air Cocina Loft, set in the end of the garden that’s jam-packed with tropical plants & trees. What do you do here? Cocoon in your room, siesta in a hammock in La Semilla’s courtyard or check out the rooftop terrace where you can lounge in style with Margarita in hand. Alternatively, go outside and hit one of Playa del Carmen’s beaches (just steps away), snorkel warm Caribbean reefs, visit archaeological monuments or explore the owner’s favourite hotspots.

Playa del Carmen’s Hotel La Semilla: a super special labour of love. We dare you not to fall for it, big time!
