Hotel Endemico, Mexico
Located in Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, Mexico, Hotel Endemico is a haven for nature and wilderness aficionados. This hotel is an eco-retreat set on 94 hectares (232 acres) which features a collection of 20 low impact “Eco-Lofts” that blend into the surrounding environment. Designed by San Diego-based architects Gracia Studio, each cabin is set privately along the sloping hillside and is intended to offer simplistic luxury. The 20 sqm cabins are mounted on steel stilts, and their small size is overtaken by the vast panoramic vistas of the dramatic surrounding landscape. Each cabin is equipped with a king size bed, a private terrace with a Mexican clay fire pit, and other comforts for outdoor lounging.
