The limit of the view is the horizon, constant and linear; only its mood changes, never its form.
Located in San Jose del Cabo on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California Sur, Mexico, Mar Adentro is a fantastically minimalist and poetic hotel developed by renowned Mexican architect Miguel Ángel Aragonés. It's a place where every detail flows and melds together beautifully.
The 198 guest rooms and additional private residences have been designed like boxes and chambers suspended over mirrors of sea water. Miguel Ángel explains:
I imagined floating houses, houses like boxes that I would harvest in order to trap light. At Mar Adentro, the houses are made of glass on the seaside, and of concrete where they meet both sun and desert. They are cubes in the middle of the ocean that use water not to navigate, but to sustain life.
All spaces are simple, comfortable, elegant and predominantly white, outfitted with sleek Poliform furnishings and top-of-the-line appliances, and always considering the two great protagonists of this work over all: the horizon and the ocean.
Mar Adentro also features different office buildings and public spaces like a private beach club, shopping plaza, restaurants, yoga and fitness facilities, a spa, and even an art gallery.
