Ryo Kan MX

Wrapped in a sculptural facade inspired by the folds of origami, this unique property is Ryo Kan MX, a boutique hotel that has been billed as the “first ryokan in Latin America.”

With just 10 rooms, its simple yet elegant design is the work of architect Regina Galvanduque of GLVDK Studio, who fused elements of Japanese hospitality and style with Mexican materials and cutting-edge technology.



Working together with local designers and artisans, GLVDK Studio created and selected furnishings inspired by Japanese design and crafted with Mexican materials.
