Solaz Set to Debut in Mexico
Design features local flair from Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos
The 128-room Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos will pay homage to Mexican state Baja California Sur with its design.
The resort, set to open next month, is designed by Mexican architectural firm Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos and features terraces that marry desert vegetation with quarry stone, granite, marble and wood. Drawing from the local landscape of Baja, a sustainable lush “dry jungle” features flora rife in the area.
Original artwork comprising sculptures and specialty furnishings created by Mexican artist César López Negrete, who travelled throughout Baja for years studying the region’s land, water, history and folklore, can be found in guestrooms and public spaces. The resort also includes El Gabinete “Del Barco,” a gallery displaying regional artifacts such as a 43-ft.-long whale skeleton and a historical map collection.
The resort will also house 20,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, including a 3,500 sq. ft. ballroom and 11,000 sq. ft. outdoor deck. Food and beverage outlets include Mako, which offers al fresco dining during the day and a more upscale experience at night. Local wine can be found at the resort wine cellar, La Cava. Finally, guests can end their eating excursions at Xocolatl, which sells organic and indigenous Mexican chocolate.
The resort spans 34 acres along Los Cabos' waterfront and also includes 21 residences. The property will ultimately expand to include a “cultural township” with new dining, shopping and entertainment options.
