This waterfront resort is not the Mexico You Know

At the tip of Mexico’s ethereal Baja California Sur, in the tourist-loved Los Cabos, lies the spectacular Mar Adentro resort. A sprawling waterfront hotel by renowned Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés, the oceanside stay is in complete harmony with the environment, appearing to almost hover above the ocean. Architecture that was intended to ‘start a conversation’, the structure is completely white, but through the light and shadows thrown onto it by the sun, the shallow pools that run from the sea to its heart and customisable room lighting, the Mexican accommodation is anything but stark. Aspiring — as Aragonés eloquently puts it — to “create spaces that generate emotions and sensations of wellbeing”, The Mar Adentro shows how simplicity, expert craftsmanship and respect for the environment can deliver something truly exquisite.
