Creating a greener world together
2023-11-03 | travel
In the center of Mérida, Yucatán, where the rich Mayan cultural heritage intertwines with the splendor of colonial architecture, lies an oasis of tranquility and beauty. Künük Hotel Boutique, a haven of serenity that challenges the conventions of the hotel industry, stands as a beacon of sustainability amid this gem in southeastern Mexico. In our magical corner, harmony with nature becomes a reality, and the pursuit of environmental sustainability becomes a mission.
Committed to Being an Eco-Friendly Hotel.
At Künük Hotel Boutique, we embrace the philosophy of sustainability with genuine and passionate commitment, weaving concrete actions into our spaces. Our extensive tropical garden not only delights the senses of our guests but also serves as a green lung in the heart of Mérida. It is a living testament to our commitment to the natural environment, where a winding path of ramps guides visitors to the hotel's pool, creating an oasis in the city that invites you to immerse yourself in a world of serenity and charm.
An Eco-conscious Boutique Hotel in Mérida, México.
The adjacent tower to our historic mansion, which houses 13 exquisitely decorated rooms, verifies the harmony between architecture and nature. At Künük Hotel Boutique, we have made a pact with the earth by building around a native tree in the area called "Huaya," thus protecting the life that nests in its branches.
Our Commitment to Water Recycling.
Land and water are vital elements for existence, and at Künük, we understand this better than anyone. Our hotel's cement tile floors and permeable pavements outside are an ingenious dance that returns rainwater to the water table, cherishing every drop as a treasure. Our gray and black water treatment plants purify the vital liquid, which is then used to irrigate the tropical garden that inhabits our premises.
Furthermore, the fountain in this lovely tropical garden is home to fish and water lilies that enchant visitors while attracting birds that come daily to drink from its waters. Undoubtedly, it exemplifies how environmental sustainability can coexist perfectly with beauty.
Waste as a Resource.
Künük Hotel Boutique's environmental awareness knows no bounds. Every corner of our hotel is a beacon of recycling and reutilization. Separation of waste by type is a sacred rule, and the cardboard and glass used inside find a second purpose as raw material for a recycling cycle.
On the other hand, organic waste from our kitchen is not wasted. It is turned into compost and then used to enrich the soil that gives life to the hotel's gardens. It's a cycle of life that embodies the hotel's philosophy: nothing is wasted; everything is transformed.
An Organic Garden that Imparts Exceptional Flavors.
The flavors and aromas of Yucatán come to life in our organic garden in Mérida, where aromatic plants breathe life into infusions and cocktails served in the bar, as well as some essential vegetables and spices used in our restaurant. This magical corner not only satisfies the senses but also highlights the value of local agriculture and sustainability.
Supporting Local Communities.
Künük Hotel Boutique is not only a refuge for travelers but also for local communities. The handwoven palm slippers found in our rooms and bath sponges in the showers are made by groups of Oaxacan artisans and are a symbol of support for local work. Also, the textiles used in our sheets, bathrobes, and towels are the result of work in communities in Yucatán, Oaxaca, and Chiapas.
Finally, our bar offers a selection of mezcals acquired from local producers in Oaxaca, further demonstrating our firm commitment to the region and celebrating Mexico's diversity and cultural richness.
“Our sustainable philosophy is nothing is lost; everything is transformed.”
Being the Change We Want to See in the World.
Künük Hotel Boutique is much more than accommodation. It is a sanctuary of environmental sustainability where nature and culture merge harmoniously. We invite you to experience our paradise in Mérida and be part of the sustainability revolution. Staying at Künük is an opportunity to enjoy the beauty and culture of Yucatán while supporting the protection of the planet.
Every guest who crosses our doors is an ally in this noble cause. Come to Künük Hotel Boutique and discover how sustainability and pleasure can go hand in hand. Together, we create a greener world and a brighter future.
