La Paloma. Old world charm.
Modern day oasis.
In the picturesque seaside town of Melaque, the beauty and serenity of old Mexico lives on. Here at La Paloma, an intimate resort, culture and traditional hospitality combine with modern technology and the singular artistic vision of its owners. Conveniently located a couple of blocks from the town square and shopping, yet when you step through the gate, you’re miles away from the world outside in a safe, secure, garden paradise.
Private hacienda. Unique personality.
Owner Nancy Lennie and her husband Richard built La Paloma’s 15 suites over 10 years, gradually turning their private residence into a highly original boutique hotel. An artist, Nancy designed each suite to be unique with its own personality and original artwork. Charming. Welcoming. Secure. Comfortable. Memorable. Just a few reasons why so many guests return year after year.
Be social or secluded. Just be yourself.
At La Paloma, you can relax. Really relax. Keep to yourself or socialize around the large pool and patio area right on the beach front. Breakfasts are served poolside during winter months, a great way to meet fellow guests. A full service drink and snack bar is available throughout the day, as well as during low key sunset gatherings.
This is a home and it feels like one. Family run. Friendly. Natural and easygoing, not glossy and obsessively perfect. Wander through the beautifully landscaped gardens past the water fountains, doze off in a hammock amongst the palms, curl up with a book in soft lounge chair, or under an umbrella on the beach. Go to the art studio to paint or head out to explore the Pacific coastal towns. La Paloma is your home base to enjoy the holiday you want.
The La Paloma family has grown too, and look forward to meeting you. La Paloma remains as our private residence and we want you to make this your home in Mexico. 4 dogs, 3 cats and 2 birds call La Paloma home too along with a garden full of fruit and tropical flowers. Each of our dogs Casey, Tippi, Buffy and Diego and the 3 cats Laurel, Hardy and Squeaks want to be ambassadors for you to enjoy too.
