Vacation in privacy and safety at one of San Miguel de Allende’s most stylish hotels
As travelers slowly begin to explore again during Covid times, hotels adjust to this new era of travel by welcoming guests back with unique offerings emphasizing safety, privacy, security and comfort. Named the best destination in Mexico for the fourth consecutive year by Travel + Leisure, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato is a small, mountain town far removed from the hustle and bustle and crowds – perfect for a safe and private getaway during these uncertain times.
Casa Delphine is one of San Miguel de Allende’s eclectic boutique hotels, owned by Los Angeles based jewelry designer Amanda Keidan. The doors of this chic boutique hotel opened in April 2019 and Casa Delphine has welcomed guests from around the globe. The magical town surrounded by the Sierra Central mountain range in the middle of the Central Mexico Plateau completely stole her heart as it does to so many visitors from around the world. With just five suites, Casa Delphine’s intimate scale gives it a distinctly residential feel, with airy rooms and natural light streaming in through large glass doors and windows with geometric detail. With travelers seeking more private and exclusive experiences during Covid, Casa Delphine is an ideal choice for families, friends, couples and small groups searching for an intimate escape where safety and health is paramount.
Casa Delphine can accommodate small groups with their full buyout for the ultimate private experience. The hotel can arrange additional activities on property, so guests don’t ever have to leave the premises. These exclusive experiences include private massages, Pilates and Yoga classes, a private chef experience for the group and much more. With access to the best chefs in San Miguel de Allende, Casa Delphine puts together world-class dinners for groups of 10 to 12 people featuring culinary fusion with local, organic ingredients. Dinners include wine pairings and tastings from local vineyards, Mezcal tastings with local brands and the hotel’s concierge is available to create any experience the group desires.
Full buyout of this picturesque hotel is $1250USD per night with a complimentary 6-course private chef dinner for guests when they stay more than 5 nights. Casa Delphine is actively checking temperatures of all guests upon arrival, allowing 36 hours between stays, requiring masks worn by all staff at all times, offering complimentary masks for guests, offering alcohol-based sanitizers in every room, providing extra sanitization attention to highly touched areas and enforcing social distancing measures. Every staff member is trained in Covid safety. There is a virtual concierge and resident physician on call. Guests and staff are only allowed inside the hotel.
The hotel is a treasure architecturally with beautifully hand laid boveda ceilings, exceptional detail in stonework and a layout that allows for two very private internal gardens offering a peaceful retreat from the city. Keidan’s concept was to create a luxurious place to stay and unwind with a beautifully curated community dining table for guests to enjoy conversation and revelations with fellow travelers, and a uniquely blue lobby which gives a pop of style. The city is known for attracting visiting artists, authors and other creative individuals, and this hotelito is well positioned to be a chic gathering place where imaginative travelers land and conversations flourish.
The five spacious suites all feature cantera fireplaces, hand designed furniture from Keidan’s collaboration with local artists, warm accents, eclectic textures and colors, and balconies that overlook the private courtyards. Guests can enjoy majestic panoramic views of San Miguel from the Spanish hacienda-style private two-floor rooftop suite.
