The AMATTE of San Miguel de Allende has announced the addition of their newest property, the Wellnest Community. This sustainably-built structure is designed around the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, or the appreciation of imperfection. The AMATTE Wellnest was created with the intention of providing guests with a “nest” they can retreat to for well-being. Each of the 34 rooms feature biodegradable bathroom amenities and rain showers, and the entire community space offers a variety of luxuries, including an orchard, spa, fitness center, and dipping pool. The space also provides plenty of fine-dining experiences with a wine cellar, mixology bars, and restaurants, one of which is the hotel’s flagship HACMANS, complete with a Michelin start chef and sustainable farm-to-table menu. The hotel’s location in the enchanting Bajío region of Guanajuato is a diverse and rich space for events. With cobblestone streets and colonial architecture, the city overflows with artistic charm and exhilarating activities, which guests can arrange through the hotel concierge.
