Marking 23 years since its inception, Angsana by Banyan Tree Group has introduced Angsana Heritage Collection, a curated portfolio of properties, in Mexico and Morocco.
The recently expanded Hacienda Xcanatun, Angsana Heritage Collection in Mexico is located just 15 minutes away from downtown Merida, the capital city of the Yucatan region known for its tropical rainforests and the home of the ancient Mayans. Haciendas, named after the Mayan word for “tall stone house”, were the epicentre of the country’s economic and social life during Mexico’s colonial period.
First built to house and operate livestock in 1789, Hacienda Xcanatun has been transformed into a hotel with 36 new suites, adding to the original 18 historic suites. Its expansion also includes new facilities such as an Olympic-length swimming pool, a solarium with a poolside snack bar, a fitness centre and a spa.
In Marrakech, Morocco, Riads Marrakech, Angsana Heritage Collection is minutes away from the landmark Jemaa el-Fna Square. The property comprises six riads – large traditional houses built around a central courtyard – totalling 42 rooms and suites.
