Mexico City, Mexico (November 25, 2019) – Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel de Allende announced its membership as the newest experience available within the Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Legend Collection, the ultimate portfolio of exceptional properties in the world’s most remarkable destinations. This announcement, in conjunction with the property’s Prix Versailles for Architecture and Design in North America award, sets La Colección Resorts’ most recently opened property as one of the most prestigious in Mexico.


Globally sophisticated and culturally refined, Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Legend Collection boasts singular properties featuring exquisite accommodations, stellar and intuitive personal service, renowned dining, and exceptional spas, setting the stage for the most unforgettable experiences.


“With a strong footprint in Mexico and, very soon, in the Dominican Republic, we’re proud to serve travelers with the most luxurious and comforting experiences and announcing our membership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Legend Collection speaks to that mission,” said Enrique Calderón, COO of the Management Company of La Coleccion Resorts properties. “At our company, we focus to bring the ultimate getaway experience for guests without sacrificing your true Mexican identity and being part of this prestigious collection makes all our hard work worthwhile,” he added.


Inaugurated in November 2018, Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel de Allende is the largest resort set in this renowned city designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2008. The property introduces urban modernity and elements of the brand’s signature concept of awakening the senses to one of Mexico’s most popular and historic cities. Upon arrival, guests appreciate its presence – a hacienda-style structure with massive double wooden doors that invites guests to experience impressive design features such as elevated ceilings, arches, courtyards, enormous art pieces, water features, and more.


The resort was developed by award-winning AoMa Estudio, based in Mexico City, that took inspiration from San Miguel de Allende by bringing in both small and large details from the city’s culture and colonial architecture such as plazas, gardens and patios, as well as is vast array of textures and shapes.


The impressive design continues into the 153 guestrooms and seven suites with unique elements such as glass encased bathrooms, exposed brick, mosaic tiles and rustic wooden floors.
