Mexico: Paradero Todos Santos, a 35-suite property, will open on 15 January 2021 and marks the beginning of Paradero Hotel’s plan to expand throughout destinations in Mexico.
The hotel is spread across five acres of land within the Mesa farming community – an agricultural area comprising 160 acres of family-owned farms.
Due to its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, the landscape offers five ecosystems: desert, mountains, beaches, oasis, and farmland. Because of the diversity, UNESCO has designated Todos Santos as a Biosphere Reserve – one of two sites in Baja.
Included in the nightly rate, Paradero Todos Santos offers activities such as surfing, guided hiking, mountain biking, farming tutorials, and Baja taco tours. Other experiences include boating and fishing expeditions, cooking classes, cliffside champagne and burrito tastings.
Mexico-born Ruben Valdez and Yashar Yektajo of Yektajo Valdez Architects designed the hotel in a trapezoid shape, with each suite offering views of the terrain. Public spaces include the Living Room, a rooftop terrace that doubles as a yoga deck, a 130-foot long infinity pool, hot tub, and half-moon lounge deck.
B Huber, the interior design firm being the EDITION Riviera Maya and Four Seasons Tamarindo, helped sourced all custom-crafted furnishings from local cities. Key items will be available for purchase.
The 16 Garden Suites have outdoor living areas and all come with a hammock and some with an outdoor soaking tub. The 18 Rooftop Suites have built-in suspended ‘star nets’ offering views of the landscape. The corner Master Casita is spread over three floors and features a kitchenette, dining area and plunge pool.
In the restaurant, the open kitchen features a Josper wood-fired oven and traditional Oaxacan clay tortilla oven. Menus will incorporate ingredients from the surrounding farms as well as fish and seafood.
The Ojo de Agua Spa will be a wellness space inspired by secret watering holes, with a focus on ancient Mexican healing traditions. It will feature hot and cold plunge pools and a relaxation area.
A 100,000-square-foot botanical garden lies at the centre of the property with more than 20,000 plants. Over 30 per cent of the flora was grown from seed in the on-site greenhouse.
Paradero Hotels has tapped the global expertise of others to build its brand experience and values, including Jesus Parrilla, principal of Luxury Frontiers and ex-CEO of Explore. Parrilla serves as strategic advisor at Paredero Hotels.
“Paradero” loosely translates to “stop on the road” and its goal is to put outdoor experiences first in high-design landscape spaces in multiverse ecosystems.
