Located in the heart of Oaxaca, the romantic Camino Real Oaxaca blends Spanish and Colonial decor with ancient frescoes, ornate archways, and secluded courtyards.
Originally built as the Santa Catalina convent in the 16th century, the unusually romantic Camino Real Oaxaca is a historical gem dotted with 400-year-old frescoes, ancient archways and intimate patios. The hotel is in the heart of Oaxaca's cultural center, convenient to the city's main square, markets, museums and theaters. Its 91 rooms and suites offer traditional decor with modern comforts and boast views of lush gardens or picturesque streets.
Exquisite public areas— many of which are illuminated at night— accentuate the Camino Real's charming ambience. The outdoor swimming pool is enclosed in a magnificently landscaped setting. Los Lavaderos is perhaps the most interesting spot, featuring a historic washing well in the middle of a stunning courtyard. Photo opportunities abound at Los Naranjos, an idyllic fountain courtyard. The convent's former chapel provides a unique venue for events.
Distinctive cuisine can be sampled at El Refectorio, serving international cuisine and regional dishes in a historical atmosphere. Enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at Las Novicias tucked under the archways of the pool area. Las Bugambilias offers cocktails and live entertainment. The weekly Guelaguetza dinner celebration held in the chapel is also a highlight, featuring dancers and live music.
