Monte Uzulu is a boutique hotel in the small town of San Agustinillo, built with a focus on local craftsmanship and sustainable design. Conceived by Taller Lu'um and At-te, the hotel harmonizes with the region's Zapotec heritage, showcasing earthen walls, indigenous wood doors, and a traditional thatched roof. The name, derived from the Zapotec word "gusulú," signifying beginnings, underscores the hotel's deep-rooted connection with nature.

Situated on a sandy hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Monte Uzulu deliberately preserved ancient trees during its construction, fostering minimal environmental impact. Embracing a palapa-inspired design—open-sided and strategically ventilated—the hotel consists of interconnected rectangular volumes crowned by gabled roofs. With 11 guest suites and a master suite, each boasting terraces overlooking the lush forest and ocean, the interiors pay homage to local craftsmanship, featuring concrete walls, wooden furnishings, and lighting designed to reflect the hotel's organic ethos.

Beyond its aesthetic allure, Monte Uzulu champions eco-consciousness, incorporating water recycling, rainwater collection, natural pools, and a biodigester for organic waste.
