When traversing the Cuernavaca area in Mexico, you may not expect to see a Japanese-styled collection of pagodas. But that's exactly what Camino Real Sumiya is. Translated, Sumiya means "place of peace, tranquility and long life", which perfectly sums up this eccentric retreat.
At Camino Real Sumiya, the architecture is decidedly Asian, with stone pathways leading to Japanese gardens. Here, you would be forgiven for imagining a graceful Geisha in contemplation on one of the ornamental bridges.
Dedicated staff welcome guests and provide a private guide service for those wishing to explore the local attractions. The hotel's 163 guestrooms are attractions all their own, some boasting private balconies and views of the gardens.
At the Sumiya Restaurant, feast on mouth watering Teppan Yaki cooked traditionally at the table by a specialty chef. Or, enjoy the perfect climate of Cuernavaca, as you dine at La Cascada near the main pool, surrounded by a slice of the orient.
