Bigger than New York, built on a plateau and teeming with 20 million residents, Mexico City overwhelms with its size and high altitude. And there’s so much to see, too: the towering pyramid-temples of Teotihuacan and the Aztec floating gardens of Xochimilco; Frida Kahlo’s house, Diego Rivera’s murals; and museums of Mayan artefacts. After a dizzying day or two you’ll be ready to soak in a sumptuous hotel spa. Thankfully the city isn’t short of options.

Sofitel Mexico City Reforma

Stays here are all about the view – of Mexico City’s central Reforma district, all tall buildings and bell towers, through terracotta roofed suburbs to distant mountains. The business-ready rooms have understated grey carpets, off-whites, low amber lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooftop bar hovers over the city, while the swimming pool and spa on the 39th floor are dominated by glass windows as tall as a two-story house – again all designed to frame that city view.

Ryo Kan Ciudad de México

Rooms in light maple, creams and whites with futon beds; a public patio like a Zen garden; and a sushi and sashimi bar. As the name suggests, the Ryo Kan brings rural Japan to central Mexico’s City’s Reforma district. The spa is a destination in itself – open to non-guests too (so book well in advance) – offering facial treatments using high-end Spanish Natura Bissé products alongside Japanese Shiatsu and Gong meditation.

Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City

With sumptuous, quiet-as-a-falling-feather, carpeted rooms and Jeeves-discreet service, the Four Seasons oozes self-assured sophistication. The central café-garden, tinkling with flowers and shaded by sub-tropical trees, is the kind of place you’d expect to see Salma Hayek sipping coffee with Alejandro Iñárritu. The spa is a stunner, with a heated outdoor pool that looks like an elegant impluvium, plucked from a Palladian villa. Book in for Mexican treatments including body scrubs and facials using ingredients including mezcal, chocolate and amaranth.

Marquis Reforma Hotel Spa

The chocolate brown woods, caramel-and-beige striped sofas and quilted-patent leather headboards on the beds certainty deposit you back in the 1980s. And yet the location of this (fading) five-star is hard to beat – overlooking the swankiest section of Mexico City’s Champs-Élysées, the Paseo de la Reforma. The spa is awesome – the size of a big-city Middle Eastern hammam. In it you’ll get lost among steam rooms, saunas and jacuzzis. There’s a big pool and a menu of some 60 treatments.

  • Las Alcobas, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Mexico City

    At home in Polanco – Mexico City’s stylish café district – Las Alcobas looks like a contemporary hotel designed by the great Arne Jacobsen.

    The Westin Santa Fe, Mexico City

    Right in the chaotic heart of Mexico City’s skyscraper-sparkling financial hub Santa Fe is where you’ll find the Westin. It’s a business hotel with a pinch of pizazz, which translates into rooms decked out in dark wood and furnished with simple geometric workstations and cabinets. Ambience comes from bright light through window-walls curtained with wispy drapes. Come to the spa if you’re a sucker for the unusual: among the more conventional men-only grooming on the many lists of treatments are washes using 24-karat gold as well as that frighteningly freezing procedure, cryotherapy.

    St Regis Mexico City

    For run-of-the-mansion luxury, the St Regis is gold-standard: check the Instagrammable skyline views from rooms above the 15th floor, the al fresco rooftop restaurant; business-secretary-style butlers for every guest and suites with their own private elevator entrances. The location is plum – in one of the city’s tallest buildings, overlooking Paseo de la Reforma avenue, and you could spend hours in the impressive Remède Spa – pampering, steaming in the sauna and swimming in the huge pool, with Mexico City at your feet.
