Set amongst boulders on a secluded hill in the heart of Baja California lies Endémico, Design Hotels™ first member hotel in Mexico’s premier wine growing region, which opens June 29. Endémico, Spanish for endemic, was designed to highlight and pay homage to the organic beauty of the landscape; from stark desert to lush vineyards. Accordingly, a team of hand-selected local tradesmen worked in collaboration with Gracia Studio to create 20 luxury cabins, which blend seamlessly with their stunning natural surroundings. Hotel owners Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, the partnership behind the highly innovative Grupo Habita portfolio of hotels, are avidly committed to investing in the regions in which they build their hotels, on an environmental, social, economic, and cultural level. Here, the eco-friendly cabins are raised off the ground to minimize their impact on the landscape and are constructed from Corten steel and wood to ensure that they weather over time. www.designhotels.com/endemico
The rustic tranquillity of the environment also inspired the refreshingly understated interior design of the cabins, which all feature simple yet chic furnishings. Minimal the cabins may be, but modern comforts and luxurious touches have not been overlooked. Private terraces offer unobstructed views over the Valle de Guadalupe and the traditional clay fireplaces, known locally as kivas, allow guests to sit under a blanket of stars and sip regional wines while being warmed by a roaring fire. From the pool, guests can soak up the calming solitude, while gazing out over the vast expanse.
Rates range from USD 175 to 325.
