New Opening: Twixt Boulders and Mexican Vineyards — the ‘Endémico’

Breathtaking location: the first Design Hotels establishment was opened in late June and is located at the heart of Mexico’s Baja California region, nestling on the slope of a secluded hillside in the leading national wine district. The design of the Endémico — taken from the Spanish ‘endemic’ — is highly appropriate for the beauty of the surrounding unspoiled landscape: the emptiness and seclusion of the desert, and luxuriant vineyard slopes.

The exciting outcome was 20 luxury residential cubes blending seamlessly into their natural surroundings; with private terraces having an unobstructed view of the Valle de Guadalupe. At night, guests may warm themselves in front of a traditional Kivas clay hearth, imbibe the local wine and gaze at the stars. In the swimming pool, guests soak up the seclusion while drinking in the view.

The tasteful interior design of the residential cubes was inspired by the rustic bareness of the immediate surroundings. Furniture is simple, yet elegant; in addition to the minimalist fittings and furnishings, but not at the expense of modern comforts and luxury.

Mexico’s Hotelgruppe Grupo Habita is operated by hotelier partners Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, both active supporters of the environment, society, business and culture in the regions in which they build hotels. For example, the environmentally friendly residential Endémico cubes are held clear of the ground on stilts, minimising their impact on the soil and landscape. The cubes are made of Corten steel and wood, so structures weather as time goes by, and were erected by a team of regional craftsmen, in cooperation with Gracia Studio.
