The boutique hotel, Amomoxtli, built around a villa surrounded by lush gardens, is a bright star among the array of hotels in Tepoztlán. Located only 90 minutes via car from Mexico City, this pueblo mágico is a favorite destination for domestic and foreign tourists throughout the year. The impressive views of the mythical Cerro del Tepozteco, an inviting climate, and grounds enveloped in nature make this small town a special one. It’s easy to see why it has become one of Mexico’s most treasured and admired locations.
Amomoxtli has 37 rooms (some with private gardens), as well as spa treatments, yoga sessions, and a temazcal. The restaurant, Mesa de Origen, uses local ingredients (many of them exclusive to the region) to elaborate a menu that reveals the village’s ancestral recipes.
In addition to enjoying the amenities, it is recommended to take a tour of the small town by foot or by bike. One of the must-see attractions is the Cerro del Tepozteco. At its peak, you can find the vestiges of what used to be a shrine dedicated to the Mexican warrior gods.

The room to book
The Amomoxtli premium suites feature a king size bed, private garden, fire pit or balcony, and breathtaking views of the Sierra del Tepozteco. The exposed rain showers and organic bath amenities made exclusively for the hotel are ideal additions.
The best open space
Surrounded by extensive gardens and a panoramic view of nature, the pool sports Jacuzzis at both ends. Also, be sure to pass some time at the pool bar. It offers healthy cocktails and snacks to enjoy while admiring the scenery.
The spa. Beyond providing the ultimate relaxing moment, it also promotes a one-of-a-kind healing experience. The five cabins, used for treatments promoting ancestral and clean energy techniques, are surrounded by lush vegetation.
The dish to taste
A must to ask for at Mesa de Origen are the chochoyotes. These small delicacies are made of a mass of corn mixed with fried butter, prepared with a touch of citrus and aioli de papalo.
Our favorite detail
The hotel offers a special package called Tepoz with Girlfriends. It includes two premium suites, a welcome fruit basket, group cleanse, wellness activities, and discounts on massages and temazcal sessions.
