If not for the Grupo Habita, Mexico would be short about half a dozen very fine modern hotels. And if not for Habita’s newest, La Purificadora, the little colonial city of Puebla (on the road from Mexico City to Oaxaca) would likely be off our radar entirely.
This 19th-century water processing plant (hence the name) and bottling factory was redesigned by the famous Mexican modernist architect Ricardo Legorreta, the man behind Mexico City’s famous Camino Real hotel. It’s a departure from the style of his brightly colored mid-century masterpiece, but then again it’s not the middle of the century anymore — aside from some judiciously applied violets, La Purificadora is fairly austere, in blacks, whites, and natural wood and stone, with the exterior walls and some interior surfaces remaining untouched and unpainted.
La Purificadora’s twenty-six rooms are more welcoming, less stark, as they ought to be — comfort is key, and architectural heroics are limited to the occasional balcony or, in the case of the Royal bedroom, a room-length terrace. Other highlights include a 30-meter (not a typo) elevated glass-walled swimming pool, a restaurant with an outdoor patio, and an extensive wine cellar — more fun than water, any day.
