We are thrilled to announce that Sombra del Agua and Casa del Alma hotels, both located in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, will be joining our boutique hotels portfolio from March 2023. 

San Cristóbal de las Casas is one of Mexico's most culturally rich, gastronomically diverse, and historically significant tourist destinations. Get to know the boutique hotels Casa del Alma and Sombra del Agua, sister hotels that have a privileged location in the city center and over 100 years of tradition. 

Casa del Alma has 27 elegantly decorated suites with details of the Chiapas region, also offering modern facilities. In addition, the hotel features a relaxing spa, and a restaurant called El Secreto, which serves delicious regional cuisine. 

On the other hand, Sombra del Agua is the most emblematic hotel in San Cristóbal de las Casas, located in a historic house dating back to 1907 and adapted with modern facilities. The hotel offers guests a unique experience with attentive service that complements the beauty of the place. The hotel's name is inspired by the literary work of poet Jaime Sabines. The rooms have a fine design and are decorated with details that highlight the culture and nature of Chiapas. 

Sombra del Agua has the prestigious restaurant Tarumba offering a menu that's deeply rooted in tradition and heritage, Chef Jorge Gordillo heads the kitchen and was named Best Emerging Chef at the 2023 Food and Travel Awards, which recognize the best of Mexico's gastronomic and tourism industry. 

The dishes are infused with the flavors of clay comals, the smiles that come from the heart, and the hands that bring ancestral knowledge of spirituality to the table. 

Both hotels offer a relaxing atmosphere and an excellent option to experience the essence of Chiapas. We are delighted to welcome Casa del Alma and Sombra del Agua to Odentio's portfolio, as both options are magnificent for a memorable stay in San Cristóbal de las Casas.
