Written by publishing team

Mundo Imperial Entertainment & Hospitality has launched WAYAM Mundo Imperial, the company’s first hotel in Merida and the city’s first LEED-certified hotel.

WAYAM Mundo Imperial is a green oasis that combines elegant urban design with the historical landscape of its location.

Located in García Ginerés, one of Mérida’s oldest and most famous neighborhoods, WAYAM is housed in a century-old residence reimagined with modern design touches, blending indoors and outdoors to immerse guests in a rich experience of the senses. The resort features a five-story-high central mango tree and 10 sculptures by famous Mexican artist Carlos Marin. Forward-thinking amenities include dog-friendly accommodations, aromatherapy, wellness experiences, and design according to the Golden Ratio.

“WAYAM is Mundo Imperial’s natural next step as sustainable travel becomes more important than ever. Guests will find that every element of the resort has been carefully designed to complement the green experience while bringing the best of Merida’s history and culture.” Mauricio Ramirez, Director of Commercial and Marketing at Mundo Imperial Entertainment & Hospitality.

Satisfying the palates of WAYAM’s signature restaurant Cuna, a gastronomic concept devised and run by Chef Maycoll Calderon, known for his award-winning restaurants and bars in Mexico City.

Named after the Spanish word for “cradle,” Cuna is an open kitchen layout that highlights honest, local ingredients cooked in a gentle and protective manner. One of Kona’s highlights is its artisanal mix. The restaurant hosts a monthly “Cena entre Amigos” dinner series, where Chef Calderon invites chefs from all over Mexico and the world to cook together, creating a great gastronomic experience. In the courtyard, Cuna Café serves locally brewed coffee, fast-food options, and lighter cocktails.

By the rooftop pool, the outdoor Marinera Pool Bar offers stunning city views, craft blends rooted in local flavors, and craft beer.

From their rooms, WAYAM guests can quench their thirst with a specialty water menu from five carefully selected Mexican brands.
