villa rental amenities

Hacienda Petac's extraordinary setting is complemented by a staff of 23 who create a warm,
welcoming environment. They provide all household services, and attend to guests’ touring needs.
Rooms and services are comparable to a luxury class resort. Meals are regional specialties, served
at times and preferences set by guests, and are included in the rental.

The Casa Principal has been restored to act as an anchor for the
hacienda’s daily gatherings. Moorish arches, tiled porches and
15 foot ceilings welcome guests into the home’s main salon, dining
room, kitchen, bar, library and private chapel.

In one building of the former henequen (sisal) factory you’ll find
two very large and distinctive private bedrooms, with spacious baths
and 20ft ceilings.

The factory buildings continue with a 1,200sq ft salon with a pool
table, ping-pong and an assortment of games. In an annex,
accessed through an arched passageway, is a third private
bedroom suite with a dramatic ceiling treatment,spectacular bathroom
and an outdoor dipping pool.

At the Mayordomo House, located near the swimming pool, the
temptation is to linger on the shady porch connecting these two
tranquil bedrooms - one with a surprising twist on a Yucatecan

Finally, tucked amid palm trees and ferns is the swimming pool
designed to allow for a relaxing day in the sun or a shaded nap
in a hammock. The waterfalls and lily ponds that accent the
landscaped grounds provide a cooling serenity to this 200acre
property. Add the sound of the Mot-Mot birds and pigmy owls that
appear daily and you’ve discovered the Petac experience.

This is a special place.
Unfortunately, due to its original stone pathways, Hacienda
Petac is not well suited for the physically challenged. Similarly,
for their own safety, children under the age of 8 must be monitored

"Peaceful elegance in a restful and romantic corne

Review submitted: September 7, 2010   Date of arrival: January 8, 2010

My partner of five years and i decided to leave the cold and damp NYC winter behind us and fly from Newark through Houston to this beautiful city in the Yucatan state called Merida. Not far from Merida, with its open air markets and palatial homes lay our destination--Hacienda Petac. As we entered through the front gates of this beautifully restored Hacienda, we were greeted by our hostess, the lovely Colleen, and her staff, with an exotic and healthy cocktail. We realized that we had come to the right place! It's difficult to put into words the perfection and beauty that are the daily workings of the Hacienda Petac. From exquisite yet simple meals with the finest wines, to service that is not only impeccable - but executed with a smiling sweetness and gentleness that must be part of the native Mayan DNA, we were enchanted! We have never felt so pampered. Our high ceilinged, very spacious room- always lovingly adorned with native flora -was a far cry from noisy Manhattan and we slept better than we ever had. When we finished our long walks, we swam, used the exercise room and/or the jacuzzi (complete with margaritas and the best guacamole we've ever had) and then after dinner played pool, scrabble or our favorite, Scattergory! The game room is HUGE with a wonderful sound system and we were served the most delicious and soporific after dinner drinks there, after which we fell into a deep and restorative sleep. Larry and I had spoken about getting married but never got around to it. The night before we were to say goodbye to this magical place, Colleen was able to bring to the Hacienda four official shamans who, amidst insense and bougainvillea, under the Mayan moon, performed our marriage ceremony. It was a spur of the moment, spiritual connection to each other but also to the beauty and purity of our five days in what i can only call the magical kingdom that is the Hacienda Petac.

"Recharged, Relaxed, and Focused"

Review submitted: September 7, 2010   Date of arrival: July 14, 2010

Hacienda Petac is an exquisite place and experience. It exceeds all expectations. Staff --overly attentive, and always kind, charming, and sincere. Room-- 30 foot ceiling and every morning when I woke up it felt like I was in a castle or something. Air conditioning worked perfectly. The bathroom had a huge shower and a separate bath and wonderful smelling soaps, shampoo, and conditioners. The food was fresh, unique and always delicious! Daily meals included local fruit, yogurt, eggs, for breakfast. Tortilla soup and seasoned chicken for lunch. Char grilled steak and homemade tortillas for dinner. Also, often handmade guacamole and chips--and always a dessert after--sorbet, flan, etc. As for drinks, I especially enjoyed the horchata. (an ice cool vanilla, cinnamon flavor)--not to mention a complete open bar. A peppered beer or Pina coladas in the hammock over the pool I highly recommend! The Spa was wonderful. My friend did some Yoga outside and I lifted some weights. I enjoyed an exfoliating body wrap and massage--followed by the hot tub, tea, and great conversation on the comfy lounge chairs. I really started to decompress on about the third day. Maybe it was the afternoon naps in my room, all the birds chirping, simply reading by the pool, or the card games we played for hours in the game room? :) The pictures on the website only give you a taste of what it truly feels like to see and enjoy Hacienda Petac. The architecture, the trees and flowers, flowing water, etc. is absolutely breathtaking. I travel often (from London to the Caribbean) and I have never experienced a vacation quite like this. You really do feel a sense of ownership. You really will savor every bite of each meal. You really will be impressed the value you get for money and the service they provide. I highly recommend Hacienda Petac--and I hope you too will leave recharged, relaxed and focused.

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed staying at the Hacienda. Everything from the grounds, the staff, the food, and the elegant touchs (house flan, flower pedal designs on the linens, etc.) made this a one-of-a-kind luxury find. We enjoyed time at the spa, fresh breakfast near the pool, and the game room. It felt like a step back into history with luxury touches.
