Nestled within the Valley of Xaaga (the Valley of Silence), this design-forward distillery hotel celebrates one of Oaxaca’s deepest traditions — Mezcal. With only six sumptuous suites, the moody allure of this stunning enclave is one of Mexico’s most unique stays.

Casa Silencio is a design-forward, eco-minded distillery and luxury retreat that honors the ancient production of mezcal, a singular agave spirit born in the mountainous, Mexican state of Oaxaca. The entire 16-acre property – including its sustainable palenque (mezcal distillery) is nestled in what we call “Valle del Silencio” (Valley of Silence). Casa Silencio is much more than a place to relax. It is a modern temple to an ancient tradition, steeped in Oaxacan mysticism behind the love of craft and culture of mezcal.

The Details

What makes it Kobu

All six breathtaking guest suites are geometrically constructed and appointed with furniture, art, textiles and decor that offer subtle nods to the Silencio spirit. Accents include burnt wood furnishings, distressed leather touches, artisanal candles, hand-woven wool rugs, velvet upholstery, and copper lamps - produced in partnership with local artisans, craftspeople and emerging artists.
Casa Silencio is the architecture behind closed doors, meaning that nothing was left over, nothing left the construction as waste. Each element of the project was reused and applied to another function. The metallic formwork was also reutilized, to avoid wasted wood left over after conventional construction.
