“The essence of the seed that flies free and germinates in its destiny” Paula Rechtman
Kuka & Naranjo represents a captivating journey that weaves together stories, connects the dots, and invites us to delve into our memories and past. Imagine the Kuká, an indigenous palm native to the Yucatan peninsula, encountering the Naranjo, originating from Asia, which crossed the seas by boat during the era of conquest.
Their connection seemed unimaginable, a fusion between two worlds that had experienced such contrasting histories. Yet, over the years, they would combine to shape what is now Mérida, a colonial city that has flourished, drawing strength from the deep-
rooted wisdom of the Kuká and the bittersweet essence of the Naranjo.
Since its inauguration in 2019, Kuka & Naranjo has witnessed the arrival of numerous wandering souls, each leaving their unique imprint within its walls. Each of the hotel's 8 rooms pays homage to one of these 8 distinctive travelers, hailing from diverse origins, forms, contexts, and with compelling, sometimes contrasting narratives. Kuka & Naranjo serves as the very place where these 8 stories and 8 travelers converge.
Step into this enchanting space that embraces art, architecture, poetry, painting, and, of course, a multitude of captivating narratives.
