Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel de Allende to Open With State’s Largest Ballroom




When it opens November 1, the new Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel de Allende will bring with it the state’s largest ballroom, officials with the hotel and Live Aqua parent company Grupo Posadas tell International Meetings Review. With 153 guest rooms, restaurants, a full-service spa and a variety of event spaces, the new resort will also be the largest guest room property in the city.

The fifth property for the Live Aqua urban lifestyle brand, the new resort aims to bring a more modern vibe to the destination, which is primarily known for its colonial heritage, as well as winning Travel + Leisure’s best city in the world two years in a row.

The resort’s ballroom will have space for events of up to 1,000 attendees. It can be divided into five separate sections, and it also has a large covered terrace overlooking the river at the back of the hotel that can be used for outdoor events. Since the resort can hold events larger than its 153-room capacity, the event spaces will have their own private access to the street, officials said. 

In terms of food and beverage, the resort’s signature Zibu restaurant will be helmed by famous Mexican chef Eduardo Palazuelos. Also on property will be the pan-Asian Spice Market, which officials say they hope will attract a local crowd in a city with few non-Mexican restaurants. As San Miguel de Allende also has a large expatriate community – the second-biggest North American population in Mexico – officials also hope that the property’s restaurants will draw expats, as well.

The resort’s guestrooms will be built around the Live Aqua brand’s signature glass-enclosed bathrooms, which allow guests to look out over the room and the view out the windows when alone, or to draw drapes for privacy. The bathrooms will aim to reflect the city’s colonial heritage, with old-style bathtubs and tile.

Other on-property amenities will include a pool and Jacuzzi, as well as a gym and full-service beauty salon. The spa will have 10 massage rooms, a private pool a sauna and a steam room.
