Exhibiting one of the most beautiful courtyards in all of Mexico, Casa Lum is a charming hotel that incorporates thoughtful and eco-friendly design.
PLEASE NOTE: While many of us won’t be traveling to Mexico any time soon, we thought it would still be useful to share these details so you can save them for a later date.
The hotel is made up of eight uniquely decorated and furnished suites that feel especially cozy thanks to the adobe walls and wooden floors and ceilings. Every room includes free WiFi, TV, and heated floors.
Something to note: While may of the rooms contain views of the garden, some of the suites do not have windows. Make sure to ask if your room has a view before confirming your reservation.
Passionate about promoting sustainability and re-use, the hotel has been decorated keeping both environmental awareness and economic development in mind.
Originally constructed in the 1800s, the building retains its original style including many adobe walls, wooden columns, and clay roof tiles.
Twenty-five doors and windows from the original house were reconditioned and reused and the plaster that covers the original adobe walls was made traditionally using natural materials like lime, prickly pear slime, and water. Additionally, 9,000 tiles from demolished buildings were incorporated in the design.
The hotel was awarded EarthCheck’s Silver Certification, denoting that they have put an environmental policy in place that monitors energy and resource usage in 10 areas.
