The architectural concept of Solaz Los Cabos was guided by this need for the proper integration of the construction into its surroundings, achieved through the use of organic forms that are adapted to the location.
The services provided by the development are designed to offer a range of accommodation options to the visitors. It comprises hotel, apartments, restaurants, spa, amenities, site museum, open plazas and more.
As a result of the naturally steep topography, it was decided to form three large curved terraces running east-west, and to place the hotel rooms at the western end. The circulation between these terraces is via narrow cuttings that also operate as dividing passageways with dense planting. Each terrace rises above the other, with south-facing façades meaning that all the spaces enjoy spectacular views. The amenities including swimming pools, beach club, sun loungers are located on the lowest level, by the beach.
The access level is located within the principal building. This construction resembles three blocks stacked on top of each other. The volumetry of this building combines the same concept of integration into the surroundings while its movement permits better views.
With its contemporary Mexican design, its proper integration into the landscape, and the sum of an integral art project, this hotel is expected to be the next icon in the hospitality industry.
