As a distinguished member of The Leading Hotels of the World and the HAMAK Hotels Collection, Casa Polanco was unveiled in June 2022 as a 5-star luxury villa combined with the peaceful serenity of staying at a lifelong friend’s abode. With mother nature’s bounty just steps away in mesmeric Lincoln Park, the historic manor is brimming with an elegant fusion of Californian and Spanish colonial revival architecture. After a highly-detailed 4-year restoration process, the 19-suite property shines with private terraces, a chic breakfast room, and a nourishing Spa cabin.
A myriad of heavenly white-washed suites are enhanced with individual living and working spaces, making way for a holistic experience for mind, body, and soul. Palatial walnut floors, rain showers, and generous libraries further elevate the posh accommodations. A private collection of expressive artworks immerse visitors in the playfulness of Jordi Boldó, the abstract gems of Ricado Pinto, and the enchanting photography of Graciela Itubide. The in-house gym is embellished with broad windows for glorious views of lush treetops, while the cocktail terrace invites guests to gather on the wooden deck and toast to everyday joys.
