A message from the owners
Marci and I discovered the charming old Indian village of Tepoztlán in the heart of Mexico, quite by accident. Bruce came down to Cuernavaca- the City of Eternal Spring for an outdoor program with David Wiley. David brought Bruce to Tepoztlán for lunch one day and it was love at first sight. Tepoztlán is a small Pueblo of 35,000 people nestled next to a large mountain chain an hour and a half drive from Mexico City. It has an ancient history and enjoys every climate available in Mexico. That was five years ago and now we are no longer tourists but residents. We are the proud owners of a boutique hotel we call Villa del Tepoz Fuego. It didn’t take us long to decide that this was where we wanted to settle. But, how to make a living?
Marci wanted to open a bed and breakfast but when we realized that many of the restaurants in town were closed during the week, we decided to offer a full-service restaurant, along with an intimate hotel. Because we had spent part of our careers as health-care professionals (Marci as a holistic nurse, and Bruce as a Chinese medicine practitioner), we decided to devote part of our property into a jewel-like spa. This would attract international travelers, as well as Mexican visitors
In order to create our dream, we undertook a total renovation of the house and grounds. This took 13 months of six day a week construction. Today Tepoz Fuego is comprised of 4 sleeping rooms and 3 suites, an open-air restaurant and bar, swimming pool and beautiful gardens surrounded by spectacular views of the surrounding beauty of the Tepozteco Mountains. This peaceful oasis features its own stream and two small waterfalls.
Marci and I traveled throughout Mexico in search of Mexican art and antiques with which to furnish the rooms-each with a different theme. For example, The Oaxaca Suite, designed honeymoon couples, is decorated with Oaxaca pottery, rug, and beautiful paintings.. It boasts a fireplace, talavera tiled bathroom, fireplace, jacuzzi tub for two, and two patios on the second floor to sit and contemplate the vista views. Some of are other rooms like the Garden Suite features a Jacuzzi and separate shower, beautiful original Mexican paintings, and a first floor outdoor private patio. All of our main rooms have private bathrooms and all are appointed with the most luxurious products-soaps, creams, shampoos. Of course, there is a hair dryer in every room. There is a room or suite for every guest and every pocketbook. Our spa and resting areas feature original frescos and murals with pastoral scenes. We can boast some of the finest massage therapists in the country.
All of our staff here come from the Tepoztlán area and feel like members of the family. We have slowly assembled and educated to them to our unique concept and offering for our special guests. None of them had ever eaten in an elegant restaurant like ours or in a hotel like hours so they needed to learn about a new set of standards and international hygiene.
Bruce, loves to play the piano so we on request provide beautiful dinner music to our many savory and delicious offerings. We wanted to have an excellent offering of delicious culinary experiences for our guests and with now our restaurant has been rated by our guests as the number one restaurant in Tepoztlán on the independent international web site Trip Advisor. We are fortunate to have one of the best chefs in Mexico with Chef Noe Rrodriquez Ocamo, who manages the kitchen. His assistant, Chef Alvaro Miranda Portugal, is equally skilled. Marci and I do most of the shopping ourselves so that guests have only organic fresh fruits and vegetables. Guests can feast n the freshest fish and the best cuts of meat. Naturally, all breads and desserts are made on the premises. Some of our favorite dishes are mussels in wine sauce, red snapper stuffed with fresh gulf shrimps, chile rellenos, and the French cut lamb chops. We are one of the few restaurants with real maple syrup, homemade cinnamon rolls and the best homemade pancakes in Mexico.
I must boast that our little hotel is famous for the best margaritas and the largest wine menu in the area. We have a nice assortment of the best domestic wines and wines from eight countries from around the world. We carry nine domestic brands of beer and lots of choices from our bar. We also carry imported sparkling wine and champagne.
We are one of the few facilities in Mexico with a chlorine- free authentic hot Jacuzzi and pool. We use ultra violet lights to kill bacteria in our general water supply and in the swimming or bathing areas, We wash our laundry with out soaps containing perfumes or dyes.
We like to do the little things for our guest’s pleasure. We turn their beds down at night and place candies for their enjoyment. We take special requests like putting hearts of rose petals on their beds saying things like “I Love You”, special flowers in their room, champagne or wines in their room while waiting for their arrival. We honor special requests for dining and provide candle lights at our tables, and special romantic meals upon request. We have many beautiful places to have a special rendezvous in or outside of our gourmet restaurant.
Our most popular offering is our cooking classes taught by Marci and Noe.
What Marci and Bruce always like say is our house is your house. “Nuestra casa es tu casa.”
