Dos Casas

Umaran 47
San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
Status: Active

It’s rare that a San Miguel property as important and extraordinary as Dos Casas comes onto the market. Recognized globally as the finest boutique hotel/restaurant/spa in San Miguel, Dos Casas presents an unprecedented opportunity to own a treasured and profitable property.

Originally an 18th century single family home, owner and architect Alberto Laposse bought the adjacent historic property and united them into a uniquely chic single property that combines graceful colonial architecture with a thoughtful mid-century modern design aesthetic. The result is an urbane, cultured and decidedly Mexican environment where international design, contemporary art, well-being and fine-dining coexist.


The property has 11 rooms and suites on 3 floors. Each room has been individually conceived to have its own singular identity. Four rooms have private outdoor terraces, some with a jacuzzi, and all with spectacular close-up views of San Miguel’s historic baroque skyline. Every en suite bath is a spacious state-of-the-art variation on the joys of steam and bathing, with grand tubs, rain showers, steam baths and the occasional private outdoor shower.

Living Spaces:

The general living spaces equally reflect the focus on art, history, culture and design.

The Library:

The library, with its original 18th century walls, celebrates Mexico’s cultural heritage with a wall of photos of 20th Century writers, film makers and poets. Shelves are filled with art, history and design books waiting to be discovered.


Aperi, the award-winning restaurant, anchors the central courtyard of the hotel. Aperi, (Latin for “Open”) is often listed as the “Best Restaurant in San Miguel” in international media, and offers a sophisticated tasting menu. There is also a “Chef’s Table” adjacent to the kitchen for private events.

The Iris Spa:

Many properties have a spa, but no other spa has Iris, a machine constructed by Ariel Guzik, renowned Mexican artist, musician, scientist and inventor. Iris captures and decodes vibrations from a crystal that are then transformed into “White Noise” which produces healing vibrations. Taking its cue from Iris, the intimate spa focuses on helping guests to achieve a transcendent state of mind-body awareness.

The Garage:

The Garage is a parking/event space around the corner from the property. With room for 10 parked cars, The Garage also functions as a versatile space for performances, art exhibits and private dining events.

In addition, a basement offers food storage, staff quarters and an additional prep kitchen.

Whether considering the property as an ongoing business or with an intent to return it to a spacious single family home, the extraordinarily high level of cultural, architectural and interior design expertise that has created Dos Casas makes this property a uniquely once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
