With 11 suites dramatically set among the serene landscape of Barra de Colotepec, Puerto Escondido‘s Casona Sforza is an exquisite enclave where design, elegance, and environmental commitment come together.
Designed by entrepreneur Ezequiel Ayarza Sforza and Mexican architect Alberto Kalach, a welcoming atmosphere and bohemian aesthetic awaits guests on the Oaxacan coast, Casona Sforza presenting one-of-a-kind, vernacular-inspired architecture alongside a sustainable luxury experience with personalised attention, seclusion and privacy as paramount.
Boasting views over the golden sands of the Pacific Ocean, the property stands out with a structure that revalues its roots and reflects a commitment to environmental conservation. Through a structure comprising clean lines, asymmetries, arches and vaults, the austere design hotel establishes a harmony with the landscape of Puerto Escondido.
With three categories: Junior, Senior and Master, suites here feature vaulted roofs and offer a sanctuary with natural textures, furniture and details in tropical woods as well as a colour scheme built around neutral hues. Collaborating with artisans throughout Mexico, guests will find palm lamps from Jalisco, rugs from Teotitlán del Valle, textiles from the Valley of Oaxaca and hammocks, chairs and curtains from the Yucatán in the bedrooms and public spaces.
Complementing the lodging experience, La Bóveda is the hotel’s restaurant. Headed up by chefs Vanessa Franco and Andrés Trujillo, it serves up locally sourced meat alongside fresh fish, shellfish, fresh vegetables and homemade bread, and works with farms and cooperatives in and around Puerto Escondido to offer guests the freshest produce and flavours in a delightful environment.
More than a hotel, Casona Sforza is a home for all, a community project with a human and sustainable vision. With fine intentions and jaw-dropping design credentials, this singular project harmoniously shaped into the Oaxacan coast is truly one to watch.
