A striking room or suite at a Small Luxury Hotel of the World with impeccable design on Mexico's coast

Mar Adentro literally means "a sea inside," and this striking getaway will have you feeling as if you’ve been swept up by the waves and carried somewhere far, far away. A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and a Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Choice Award 2017 winner, the exquisite escape is deeply rooted in its setting, serving seafood and even reverse-osmosed water from the Sea of Cortez – but its atmosphere is almost otherworldly.

With sleek, minimalist exteriors and interiors by Poliform Contract, it looks like a figment of a hypermodern architect or artist’s imagination. Elements that incorporate the wood, the waves and the color white echo surrounding Cabo nature, but the effect is completely abstract and unique.

Indeed, Mar Adentro has been profiled in Architectural Digest Italy, among others. But it’s not just the hotel’s looks that will have architects – or really anyone with a design flair – falling in love. The hotel lifestyle is as creative as the design. Critically acclaimed films are screened in the cinema, winners of the world’s most prestigious ballet competition perform annually, and Mario Palacios Kaim works line the walls.

The culinary arts have also been mastered, at the six dining and drinking spots, and the art of cosmetology at the spa, where you can set your aromatherapy massage to Vivaldi or Wim Mertens. Even the little ones can have a novel experience, playing with sensory accessories by Magis Kids in the Ludoteca playroom – or discovering that sea outside, via the 40,000-square-foot beach.
