Each offering is integrated with a purposefulness that enhances daily life, whether venturing to a morning spa treatment, spending the day poolside, getting work done in an inspiring atmosphere or grabbing a bite to eat before heading out on the town.
Among the most unique aspects of Candela is the central pool that wanders its way through the community, acting as an homage to ancient vestiges that have stood intermingled with natural waters for centuries. The pool twists and turns around residences, sparking a sense of spontaneity around each corner that is heightened by a candlelit atmosphere. Water corridors merge with private terraces, fostering social gatherings and a close sense of community. Jump in directly from residences, making the experience one-of-a-kind.
A tribute to Valladolid, the signature restaurant at Candela will welcome owners with exclusive access and discounts to its sophisticated dining experience pioneered by a celebrated chef. Known to offer the best gastronomic experiences in Mexico, Yucatan has a rich history that Candela will draw upon to create a fresh, advanced concept that uniquely complements regional flavors. From dawn till dusk, enjoy a lounge-like atmosphere for casual, open-air dining, which then transitions to a more structured environment as the sun starts to set.
Rooftop Pool & Bar
Perched atop Candela, the rooftop pool and bar draws you in for its ambience and views—day and night. With views of the surrounding townscape, enjoy sun-soaked days poolside with fresh fare and hand-crafted beverages from locally sourced, natural ingredients while gathering with friends and family above the sights and sounds of the Plaza de la Candelaria.
For one of the most exclusive dining experiences in Valladolid’s famed culinary scene, reserve the Omakase room for an intimate, unforgettable meal for up to eight people. Enjoy a curated menu developed by a leading chef that features a fusion of Japanese and Mexican cuisines from locally sourced, seasonal specialties. The memorable experience merges the open-concept kitchen with bar seating for an integrated environment that connects and unites the ingredients, preparation and chef’s inspiration for an enriching meal with historical context, culture and traditions.
Inspired by ancient bathhouses, the spa at Candela welcomes guests for a restorative, rejuvenating experience with signature treatments that feature long celebrated healing practices developed throughout the years in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
