Perched on a coveted 34 acres overlooking the Sea of Cortez, Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos offers travelers a restorative, wholly transformative experience in the heart of Baja California Sur. The resort’s natural surroundings offer visual splendor at every turn, from picture-perfect beaches to dazzling night skies.
Rooted in Authenticity
Springing from the prolific imagination of acclaimed Mexico City based architectural firm Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos, the resort was created as an architectural work of art. The property’s design pays tribute to its Baja home, celebrating the magnificent natural landscapes and exquisite cultural marvels that draw travelers to the region season after season. From lobby to guest rooms and beyond, clean-lined contemporary furniture complements the architecture. Capturing the sublime beauty found in indigenous Mexico meant that working with Mexican architects and artists to bring Solaz to life was wholly intentional. Solaz Resort has ensured a truly captivating experience rooted in authenticity, and the international architecture and design world is taking notice:

A Seamless Blend
Guests of Solaz Resort will at once notice the striking architecture, which seamlessly blends into the destination’s unique landscape. Building materials, which include an organic mix of quarry stone, travertine, granite, and huanacaxtle, a tropical hardwood, as well as landscaping and construction methods were selected to reinforce the concept of integration with the natural surroundings. The resort’s cascading buildings feature rooftop gardens with colorful desert plants endemic to the region, creating a lush and visually appealing sight for guests situated above, a respite from the standard grey roofs. The gardens also help to insulate the buildings, keeping them more naturally cool and less reliant on air conditioning, which helps to conserve energy. Flora selected for the Solaz Resort include a mixture of exotic trees, bushes and flowers ideal for the dry “desert jungle” climate of the region. Additionally, the resort’s water features provide a refreshing contrast to the desert environment, featuring outdoor pools that are lined with butterfly green granite, harmonizing perfectly with the Sea of Cortez, just steps away.
Guest rooms with Baja in Mind
Located where the sea meets the desert, each guest room was purposely positioned in line with the natural topography of the earth, dictating the placement of the rooms and their private curved terraces which overlook the Sea of Cortez. Each of the 128 guest rooms, the Presidential Suite, and luxury residences effortlessly transition from indoor to outdoor space, with many rooms offering bathrooms that are uniquely designed to feature indoor and outdoor marble showers. Other features include private entrances and patios, custom and contemporary furnishings, and original artworks throughout. By combining contemporary and organic architecture with curated, intentional spaces, Solaz Resort has joined nature, culture and high-end design to create a one-of-a-kind resort.
Original Baja-Inspired Art
Celebrating art at every turn, The Luxury Collection’s Los Cabos property features original works throughout — all masterfully created by famed Mexican artist César López-Negrete, who traveled throughout Baja for years studying the region’s land, water, history, and folklore. Negrete’s research inspired him to create striking paintings, sculptures and specialty crafted furnishings, fostering a transformative experience for visitors. The artist’s passion is on display in Solaz Resort’s public spaces, such as walkways, foyers and restaurants, as well as within each of the property’s guestrooms and suites. The resort’s Artisan butlers can provide guests with a private tour throughout the grounds to explore the over 145 indigenous species of native flora and to share details on the sculptures, murals, carvings and other works adorning the resort. With art and architecture playing such a pivotal role in the development and design of Solaz Resort, it was a natural fit for the resort to also create a dedicated gallery on property for guests, residents, and visitors. El Gabinete “Del Barco” is the indigenous gallery featuring regional artifacts and open spaces to walk while enjoying the breathtaking natural scenery.
