We can never measure all that nature, community and tradition have given us. We believe in doing our part – as hoteliers, as human beings – to honor and preserve these. We have set a goal of carbon neutrality and self-sustainability, and are keenly aware of how we interact and coexist with our surrounding ecosystems.

Our behind-the-scenes operations as well as those that our guests experience, emphasize our instinctive value for the planet and people that give us life.


We pledge to honor the ecosystems, cultural traditions and natural rhythms around each of our properties, with love for the beauty and wonder found within and to live harmoniously now while holding space for future generations.


The planet gives us life, and we are committed to honoring that in every way we can, by operating responsibly and nurturing the preservation of resources consciously.


People hold vibrations and invite joy, and we honor you, our guest with gratitude for our staff, who exude warmth in delivering service from the heart.


Perhaps nothing influences experience as profoundly as place, which inspires a careful recognition and preservation of resources, informs the way design and nature interconnect and nurture harmony, while forever captivating the senses.


Purpose shared is purpose fulfilled, and for us, it’s the desire to promote balance and longevity, by protecting and preserving natural resources and creating restorative spaces that encourage guests to feel a sense of pure well-being.



The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide a strategic framework that helps us to recognize the local and global impact of our actions in promoting the wellness of our planet and community. We have prioritized the following global goals as being the most relevant to our pledge to honor all that the earth has given us and to respect and uphold the communities around us:
  • Good health and well-being
  • Decent work and economic growth
  • Responsible consumption and production
  • Climate action
  • Life below water
  • Life on land


See some of our practices – both behind-the-scenes and guest-inclusive – that are intended to preserve precious resources, encourage wellness, and support local communities.


For us, sustainability is not only about nurturing our precious communities and ecosystems, but also about encouraging our guests along their personal journey toward happiness and fulfillment. Each of our properties offer wellbeing-focused experiences, activities, ceremonies and rituals – as well as unmistakable immersion in nature, which is healing in itself. Whether practicing yoga next to a cenote or on the beach, riding a bicycle through trails canopied by verdant plant life and brilliant birdsong, strolling on the beach, connecting with your game in a self-expressive way at Chablé Yucatán’s Wellness Golf course, exploring local historical sites, working out in the fitness center, enjoying fresh whole cuisine, falling asleep to the sounds of nature…ever moment brings you closer to the present and reignites your inner joy.


The Mayans and other ancient cultures believed that food is sacred and should be consumed with gratitude and respect for its bounty. We hold that belief in the highest regard, and also revel in the exceptionally varied flavors, ingredients and techniques that characterize Mexican culinary traditions. Our farm-to-table, made-from-scratch, and sustainable fishing efforts not only help us have a lighter footprint, but also deliver extraordinarily fresh and delicious ingredients and dishes to our guests. Practices include:
  • We grow a beautiful array of produce in the more than 115 ka’anches at our properties. A ka’anche is a traditional, raised Mayan garden. Building and growing food in these allows us to recreate harvesting techniques that have not been used in over a century. We also have production beds on the ground, equivalent to 20 square meters for each bed. In our ka’anches, we grow radishes, coriander, oregano, basil, citronella, stevia, chives, cherry tomato, and habanero pepper, among other delectable fruits, herbs and vegetables. In total, we harvest 55 different species.
  • We produce more than 20 food items from scratch, including mayonnaise, ice cream, sorbets, salty and sweet bread, tortillas, jams, sauces, granola, mole, amaranth, chocolate truffles, and crowbars
  • We partner with different sustainable fisheries that adapt to the reproductive rate of fish, to maintain a balance and ensure the survival of all species.
  • Our chefs and restaurants are part of the “Pesca con Futuro” movement, which aims to spread a message of sustainability in fish and aquaculture in Mexico, keeping aquatic populations healthy.
  • We source mackerel, tuna and golden fish from Ensenada, hotfish (boquinete) from Quintana Roo, and sea bass from La Paz.


While being here is in itself a way of connecting to the natural world, our philosophy rests on the premise that we have a responsibility to conserve and protect animals. Therefore, we focus on protecting populations of white-tailed deer, armadillos, Melipona bees, and coatis. We offer a number of ways for guests to immerse themselves further into understanding and appreciating the ecosystems around our properties. A few examples of these experiences include:
  • In partnership with OCEANUS A.C., our coral restoration program supports the Caribbean Mexican reef off the coast of Punta Maroma – part of the mesoamerican reef, which is the world’s second largest barrier reef. We outplant 650 live colonies each year and invite guests to adopt a coral by adding a personal wish to a cement base, which OCEANUS A.C. will later place in the sea before sending the guest a photo of their base, now ready to accept its coral outplant.
  • The “Green Route” experience at Chablé Yucatan takes guests by bicycle throughout the lush trails weaving throughout the property and the former hacienda grounds, as a guide points out highlights, native flora and fauna, and some of our sustainable practices.
  • At Chablé Yucatán, guided experiences at our Melipona bees sanctuary honors several species native to this part of the world – stingless bees that possess a fiercely loyal and protective spirit, and that produce deeply medicinal, delicious, rare honey.
  • Children’s activities include organic gardening and nature walks


We revere Mexico’s rich cultural heritage. Each property has a unique way of inviting guests to discover our traditions for themselves, fostering greater appreciation for and understanding of our collective humanity. Some examples of these guest experiences include:
  • The temazcal – or steam house – at Chablé Yucatán and Chablé Maroma offers rituals based upon one of the oldest forms of medicine, where one’s physical, mental, and spiritual awareness converge
  • Spa ceremonies incorporating Mayan healing practices
  • Traditional Mayan cooking classes
  • At Chablé Yucatán each Monday evening, the “Jarana Yucateca” – a traditional Mayan dance centered around color, celebration and storytelling
  • A stunning, delectable culinary offering blending ancient and modern ingredients and techniques, at each of our restaurants


We celebrate being intertwined with the land and people who make our destinations so special. Communities are precious and we take great pride in supporting local populations.
  • The boutiques at both Chablé Yucatán and Chablé Maroma are filled with inimitable, lovingly crafted wares made locally and regionally. The products we sell are made by more than 30 local artisans from 20 different communities spanning several Mexican states.
  • One of our top priorities is to empower local communities by providing provide decent jobs with honorable standards and rights at work, social protection, and social dialogue. 40% of our collaborators are local to each property, and proudly offer warm, genuine service to every guest.


We wholeheartedly practice resource preservation and responsible waste management. A few examples include:
  • At all Chablé properties, we are plastic-bottle-free. At Chablé Maroma and Chablé Yucatán alone, this saves an average of 7,000 bottles per month.
  • In 2021, we installed 1,848 solar panels at Chablé Yucatán, which generate 60% of the energy we currently use. This reduces emissions by 812 tons of carbon dioxide per year, the equivalent of planting 4,318 trees.
  • At Chablé Maroma, we operate a water recycling plant – a fully automated standalone unit that recycles processed water by treating the water cost-efficiently.
  • Casa Chablé uses solar panels for energy and is not connected to the public electricity network. The property also purifies water for consumption with a reverse-osmosis system. And, its 180-meter beach is cleaned every three days with gentle, non-invasive methods.
  • Each of our hotels are designed to exist in symbiosis with the surrounding environment; they extend the surrounding landscapes and culture in as non-invasive a way as possible. Chablé Maroma was constructed using natural elements from the Yucatán Península, including the use of local zapote and chaca tree trunks. Beach vegetation was preserved, and the mangroves and groundwater table are closely guarded by the four permanent flood-level monitoring stations we installed to provide the best conditions for mangrove conservation.
