Located in the heart of sunny Acapulco, Hotel Encanto by Mexican architect Miguel Ángel Aragonés is a minimalist and serene translation of the region's ornate and vivid architecture. The sublime hotel is structured to resemble a labyrinth and boasts stunning ocean views along with outdoor pools and lounging areas that are almost more impressive than its private lodgings.

Using 'few resources, simple materials and local labor, Hotel Encanto proves that one can obtain impressive architectural results even with the most limited of means'.

The monumental structure boasts narrow hallways that are offset against vast and open spaces and high ceiling details. This building captures a constant play of light and shadow and provides its inhabitants with vivid views of its surrounding beach landscape.
