This majestic residence in Cuernavaca once belonged to Barbara Hutton Woolworth. It took six years to build, completed in 1959 after the detailed search for a place with the ideal climate, magnetism and historic roots. Sumiya means "place of peace, tranquility and longevity", words that perfectly describe the atmosphere of this impressive palace whose symbol is a lotus flower with swords to represent wisdom and love.
The design of the Camino Real Sumiya is truly Asian, with pagodas and characteristics like mahogany, granite-tile roofs to keep the property cool, and of course walkways taking you through traditional Japanese gardens.
