The brand-spanking-new Solaz Resort Los Cabos is the latest architectural wonder to grace the shores of the Sea of Cortez. It is intended to pay homage to its Baja California roots, blending the endemic desert vegetation with flora to create a unique “dry jungle.” Nestled between two natural rock beds, it also boasts one of the area’s only swimmable beaches. But what makes Solaz truly stand out among a sea of Los Cabos resorts is its incredible architecture, with strong vertical lines that cast dramatic shadows across the property.

That striking aesthetic is carried out throughout the 128 guest rooms. Blurring the lines between indoors and out, each has its own entrance and patio with unobstructed views of the sea, plus select suites have private terraces. Designed in tiers, structures are capped with Solaz’s signature landscaping, ensuring views are never marred by the sight of a concrete roof. Stays here include the service of an artisan butler, whose only goal is to guarantee an unforgettable experience.

Unique design is at every turn across the resort. Walkways leading to the beach are lined with cacti, aloe and other flora, and original Mexican art is thoughtfully placed within the landscaping. Woven wood grids hang above chaise lounges at the full-service spa, which boasts Los Cabos’s only thalassotherapy treatment. And large, detailed pergolas cast those trademark dramatic shadows at each of the four eateries, which offer everything from smoothie bowls and huevos ahogados at breakfast to delectable lobster tail and life-changing bone marrow tacos come dinner. Curated off-property experiences include private stargazing up in the mountains, a luxurious yacht excursion to see the iconic Arch and snorkel in the sea’s crystal-clear waters, and more.

All told, Solaz’s one-of-a-kind architecture and premier offerings make for a getaway both novice and experienced travelers can appreciate. It’s the ideal destination for someone who thinks they’ve seen the best of Cabo — so far.
