We're thrilled to announce we've redesigned our website and are excited to share it with you. While we had wonderful feedback around our old website, our business has expanded over the years to become much more dynamic. Our intention was to create an online space that mirrors the energy of the property today. We hope you love it as much as we do.
In an ongoing partnership with Hotel Emma, San Antonio's leading luxury boutique hotel located at the historic Pearl, we're thrilled to announce our lavender apothecary line will now be the bath amenity available in all of their rooms. Guests at Hotel Emma will be able to indulge in Los Poblanos bath amenities such as bath salts and lavender lotion.
"We are thrilled to join forces with such an amazing family-owned company," says Bill Petrella, President and General Manager at Hotel Emma. "Los Poblanos organic products and overall group are an excellent fit with our brand. We are committed to enhancing our guests' experience, and we hope they will love these new bath amenities as much as we do."
We are so excited to announce that Los Poblanos has been selected as a new member of HIP Hotels, a London-based collective of uniquely stylish properties across the world. Los Poblanos is the first property in New Mexico to be invited into this discerning collection of hotels, and is in great company with stunning properties across the world and close to home, including Colorado's Dunton Hot Springs and California's Post Ranch Inn.

Lotus flowers and roses are two of our favorite botanicals growing here at Los Poblanos and are the inspiration behind our upcoming The Lotus & The Rose workshop on Saturday, August 5th. Join us for a full day of relaxation and learning surrounded by our beautiful gardens. Begin the morning with a sound healing meditation, led by Aimee Conlee, where you will practice breathing, light stretching, and relaxation techniques involving sound. Once you’re fully relaxed, take a leisurely stroll around the pond and though the rose gardens, where Christa Obuchowski will talk about the different types of roses and how their essential oils are utilized in aromatherapy and herbal medicine. The in-depth discussion will continue with a demonstration of the distillation process that Christa uses to extract the precious oils from the plants.
There’s an air of excitement on the farm as the winter holidays grow ever nearer. Trees sparkling with lights and mantels hung with garlands are stirring our festive spirits. But nowhere is quite as holly-jolly as over at the Farm Shop, where our third greenhouse room has just opened to the public. Packed to the rafters with tree trimmings, unique little stocking stuffers, and authentic folk art decor, it’s the place to be for holiday cheer. Stop by the Farm Shop where our wonderful staff is waiting to help you pick out the perfect gifts for everyone on you list (yourself included!).
Lavender season has arrived and at Los Poblanos that means one thing: Lavender Labs! All through the months of June and July, we will be holding workshops, demonstrations, dining events, pop-up shops, and more; all in celebration of our favorite botanical.
Los Poblanos has been a part of the New Mexican landscape for as long as almost anybody can remember. From it’s time in the 1930s as an 800-acre ranch owned by the Congressman, Albert Simms, and his wife, Ruth Hanna McCormick Simms to it’s life today as a historic inn and organic farm proudly producing its own artisan lavender products and Rio Grande Valley cuisine. Throughout it’s 80-year history, Los Poblanos has worked its way into the hearts and minds of every person who has ever strolled the grounds, spent the night, or come to celebrate. Su Casa Magazine captured it best when they said, “one could spend a lifetime at Los Poblanos and never fall out of love.” We wholeheartedly agree and it is our greatest pleasure to be able to share this special place with our guests and visitors.
