Luxury Collection plans Los Cabos resort with 10,000sq ft spa

by Jane Kitchen | 09 Mar 2018

The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts will open its first hotel in Baja California Sur in June of this year, complete with a 10,000sq ft (929sq m) spa .

Solaz Resort will be operated by Qunta del Golfo de Cortez, and will include 128 hotel bedrooms and 21 residences on 34 acres overlooking the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.

The Ojo de Liebre Spa will offer 10 private treatment rooms and two VIP double rooms, along with a full range of services, including Alo Therapy – a Himalayan salt igloo – and thalassotherapy.

The Luxury Collection has a total of seven hotels throughout Mexico, including Baja California Sur, Campeche, Mexico City, and Yucatan.

"The debut of Solaz Resort marks The Luxury Collection's seventh hotel in Mexico; an important milestone for the brand as we showcase our commitment to expanding our footprint in this remarkable destination," said Mitzi Gaskins, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection.

"Solaz Resort will offer global explorers a new gateway to the Baja California Peninsula and deliver unparalleled travel experiences signature to The Luxury Collection."

Designed by architectural firm Sordo Madaleno, the resort's cascading terraces blend desert vegetation with quarry stone, granite, marble and wood to create an architectural "sculpture" amid desert landscaping. Each guest room and suite features a private entrance and patio; custom, contemporary furnishings; and original art. Floor plans blur the lines between indoor and outdoor space, as private terraces provide unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez.

Solaz Resort features original works throughout — all created by famed Mexican artist César Negrete, who travelled throughout Baja for years, studying the region's natural history and folklore.

El Gabinete "Del Barco" is an indigenous gallery featuring regional artefacts and open spaces to walk through while enjoying natural scenery. Viewed through the eyes of Baja California explorer Miguel del Barco, exhibits include a 43-foot-long whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling, a historical original map collection, and more.
