The Luxury Collection, part of Marriott International, Inc., today announced the opening of Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos. Perched on a coveted 34 acres overlooking the Sea of Cortez, Solaz Resort offers travelers a restorative, wholly transformative experience in the heart of Baja California Sur. Located midway between the bustling vacation city of Cabo San Lucas and the quaint historic town of San José del Cabo, the 128-room beachfront oasis is The Luxury Collection‘s first hotel on the beautiful Baja California peninsula.
From design to cuisine, immersive adventures to spacious accommodations, Solaz Resort pays tribute to its Baja home, celebrating the magnificent natural landscapes and exquisite cultural marvels that are the region’s signatures. Solaz Resort has collaborated with the very best in locally grown talent, including Mexican architects, artists and chefs, to ensure a truly captivating experience rooted in authenticity.
“A top resort destination, Los Cabos is rich in culture and acts a gateway for our Global Explorers to connect with the indigenous offerings of Mexico.” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection. “The Luxury Collection’s guests seek destinations with enriching qualities and there is a magnetic attraction to this Baja oasis. As the seventh Luxury Collection hotel in Mexico, Solaz Resort showcases the brand’s commitment to expanding its footprint and enhancing its offerings for discerning travelers to the destination.”
Each masterfully designed guest room and suite at Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos features a private entrance and patio, contemporary furnishings and original art. Further setting the mood, Bluetooth technology offers touchscreen remote control access to the curtains, lighting and music. Unobstructed views of the sea blur the lines between indoors and outdoors, with a natural flow from each room to its private terrace.
Guests of Solaz Resort will at once notice the striking architecture, which seamlessly blends the destination’s unique landscape, where the desert meets the sea. Springing from the fertile imagination of renowned Mexican architectural firm Sordo Madaleno, the resort’s cascading terraces mix desert vegetation with quarry stone, granite, marble and wood. Celebrating the distinctive endemic landscape of Baja, Solaz Resort features a sustainable lush “dry jungle” featuring only endemic flora.
Mexican Art Immersion
Celebrating art at every turn, The Luxury Collection’s Solaz Resort features original works throughout the property — all masterfully created by famed Mexican artist César López-Negrete, who travelled throughout Baja for years studying the region’s land, water, history and folklore. El Gabinete “Del Barco” is the resort’s indigenous gallery, showcasing rare regional artifacts such as a 43-foot-long whale skeleton and a historical map collection.
Authentic Experiences and Adventures
Solaz Resort offers an array of bespoke, exclusive experiences designed to bring guests closer to the soul of Baja. Take a private helicopter trip to explore the rare cave paintings of Baja. Swim alongside whale sharks, gentle giants who can grow up to 33 feet long. Learn about the region’s deep culinary heritage during a cooking class. Enjoy a breathtaking night under the desert stars, soaking in crystal clear visions of the cosmos. Can’t decide what to do? No problem – each room will have a dedicated Artisan butler who will help curate these one-of-a-kind, luxury adventures.
