The Mayan Baths & Spa
A Developing Hot Springs Spa & Hotel Resort Project
Development Site – Business Opportunity – Investment or Estate Property
This is an offer to sell a 42-acre property, with a truly unique and sustainably planned and developing hot springs spa / hotel resort project, located in the inviting climate of Mexico’s central highlands, just minutes from the enchanting colonial town of San Miguel de Allende. The site for this project was chosen for its rare combination of majestic hilltop views of Mexico’s Sierra Madre Mountains, and its access to San Miguel’s legendary crystal clear thermal aquifer whose odorless and potable water drew the Toltec and Maya to this region thousands of years ago.
San Miguel was voted Condé Nast Traveler Readers Choice #1 City Destination in the World in 2013, and continually ranks among the world’s most highly rated destinations according to notable travel and retirement authorities including: Money magazine, Travel & Leisuremagazine and The New York Times. In 2008, San Miguel was declared a UNESCO World Heritage cultural site, as was the nearby village of Atotonilco, which in ancient Toltec means: place of thermal water.
San Miguel is located in the state of Guanajuato, home to one of Mexico’s and the world’s fastest growing automotive manufacturing hubs including new assembly plants for Mazda, Honda, Volkswagen and GM together with automotive parts manufactures too numerous to mention, and the property is just 40 minutes from the fastest growing city in all the Americas, Queretero, where Bombardier recently opened a Learjet factory. The growth of nearby cities and industries assures an ever increasing client base as evidenced by the Japanese auto executives now renting the Baths for private events..
The Hacienda Arcángel-Mayan Baths’ master development plan was conceived in a design charrette which included GVA, one of the top architectural firms in México, Bob Zimmer – founder and original CEO of Rosewood hotels and internationally experienced land planners, Design Workshop. They concluded that by utilizing San Miguel’s natural thermal waters, a uniquely themed and sustainably planned, multi-use hot springs spa resort development would have an incomparable market advantage.
Their vision for Hacienda Arcángel was to meld the ambiance of an old-world hacienda hotel with a spa designed as a Mayan Temple above an underground “cenote” style complex of water filled caves and tunnels, creating the #1 attraction in San Miguel de Allende and ultimately ranking it among the most desirable natural thermal spa resorts in the world.
With just one-third of the Mayan Baths’ underground spa portion completed thus far, Hacienda Arcángel is already becoming known as one of San Miguel’s most outstanding attractions, and has received noteworthy foreign media attention, described as: “breathtaking” in Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine, a “wonderful surprise” and “brilliant idea” in Trip Advisor, and “magical” in Travel to Wellness magazine.
This stunning property with majestic hilltop views, crystal clear hot springs waters, together with its substantial infrastructure and amenities including the 18,686 sq. ft. Mayan Baths facilities, a 2,700 sq. ft. private residence, a 17-lot residential subdivision, much more construction, and extensive plans related to its future development, is now offered for sale for $4,900,000 USD.
