Los Cabos’s luxury resort boom continues with this June’s opening of Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort. General Manager Giuliana Torres Schernthaner tells us the resort is set on descending terraces, blending desert vegetation with quarry stone, granite, marble and wood to create an “architectural sculpture.” Each of the 128 guestrooms has contemporary décor and a control panel, allowing guests to make dining or spa reservations. Good to know: Artisans (butlers) are available to book excursions.
El Gabinete “Del Barco” is the resort’s art gallery, designed to be viewed through the eyes of explorer Miguel del Barco, showcasing regional artifacts such as a 43-foot-long whale skeleton and a historical map collection. Art commissioned by César Lopez-Negrete can be found throughout the resort, which, we’re told is “in essence, a 34-acre museum.”
Solaz has 128 rooms with contemporary décor.
Solaz will have six dining options, with a highlight being fresh seafood and traditional Baja fare. We’re excited by the chocolate shop and ice cream boutique, Xocolatl, which serves organic and indigenous eats. Guests can also opt for a private cooking class with the chef, or they can go fishing on a private yacht with the chef preparing the catch afterwards.
The resort can put together other excursions, such as whale safaris or helicopter tours (from its own Solaz-branded helicopter); guests can even use the helicopter for quick transportation to other beaches, hiking spots and even the airport. We suggest spending a night away to go “glamping” in the Sierra de la Laguna mountains.

We’re also told that the ownership has begun construction on a St. Regis in Los Cabos. It will have 120 rooms and 60 residences.
