The Spanish colonial city of Puebla in Mexico has to be one of the country’s most photogenic, set against a snow-capped mountain and replete with architecturally resplendent churches and palaces (enough of them to have garnered it Unesco World Heritage Site designation).

With a prime situation in the historic centre, the new Rosewood Puebla (rosewoodhotels.com; from £212) makes the most of local artisanal traditions in the design of its 78 rooms and suites, among them ornate customised ironwork and colourful profusions of the region’s famous Talavera ceramic tiles, based on a craft dating to the 18th century. That there are also supremely elevated takes on local cuisine, a rooftop bar, a full-service spa and a cohort of local guides expert in everything from hiking paths to textiles only adds to the appeal of this offering.
