Mexican artwork, thalassotherapy and a whale skeleton: Luxury Collection’s Solaz Resort opens in Los Cabos
POSTED 07 Sep 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand has opened a new resort in Los Cabos, Mexico with a 10,000sq ft (929sq m) spa.

The 128-bedroom Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos, is perched on 34 acres overlooking the Sea of Cortez, and includes five swimming pools, including two 50m infinity pools.

The Ojo de Liebre Spa offers eight private treatment rooms and two double VIP rooms, along with a range of services including halotherapy in a Himalayan salt igloo. The spa is also the only one in Baja California to offer thalassotherapy.

Mexican architectural firm Sordo Madaleno designed the resort with an aim to blend the destination’s landscape, where the desert meets the sea. Cascading terraces mix desert vegetation with quarry stone, granite, marble and wood. The resort also includes a sustainable, lush “dry jungle” featuring only endemic flora.

The resort features original artwork throughout the property — all 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.

“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.”
