Rooted in history
In the heart of the Rio Grande Valley, set among 25 acres of lavender fields, enormous cottonwood trees and lush formal gardens, Los Poblanos is undeniably one of the most stunning properties in the Southwest. From the minute you drive down the long tree-lined allée flanked by fields of lavender and rows of vegetables, you know you are in a very special place.
Designed in 1932 by the region’s foremost architect, John Gaw Meem, the “Father of Santa Fe Style,” Los Poblanos combines 45 guest rooms, a working organic farm, the award-winning Campo restaurant, Spa and and the ideal setting for special events. The natural beauty, comfort and privacy of Los Poblanos offer our guests a truly relaxing environment.
The historic La Quinta building, designed by Meem, is an architectural jewel with an elegant ballroom, parquet walnut floors, hand-carved ceilings, decorative Spanish tile, monumental fireplaces and WPA artwork of pastoral farming scenes. The Hacienda, one of Meem's residential masterpieces, boasts a Spanish courtyard that is dripping with Lady Banks' roses and lush greenery, with a Moorish fountain, massive carved doors and kiva fireplaces that provide lodging guests with a private place to pause and relax.
Around every corner, one can find vibrant flower beds irrigated with river water, Spanish tile fountains, rose-cutting gardens, winding pathways and sweeping views. But Los Poblanos is not just a pretty place. It is a family-run business with personable staff that are dedicated to its unique model of historic preservation and regenerative agriculture.
The result is one of the purest field-to-fork menus in the country, using organic ingredients grown in our fields and from other farms in the Rio Grande Valley. With charming guest rooms, signature lavender products and a gin distillery, the rich history of Los Poblanos is the foundation for a dynamic model of hospitality.
One could spend a lifetime at Los Poblanos and never fall out of love.
