Let’s say that engaging in a Tour de México has now become more tempting than ever, and we’re praying the current travel restrictions are lifted very soon. Since its inception in 1994, hospitality company Grupo Habita has opened a string of alluring boutique hotels across Mexico and beyond, and the latest property officially opens its doors today on the Baja California Peninsula. Called Baja Club Hotel, it occupies a traditional hacienda built in 1910 and situated smack on the beach in downtown La Paz. The main building was previously home to an oyster pearl harvesting company, and following a collaborative redevelopment by Mexico City-based practice Max von Werz Arquitectos and Jaune from Paris, new boutique lodgings have emerged which blend history and contemporary hospitality. A pristine stuccoed façade lends the historic main building a subtle modern edge, and inside, much of the original architectural elements have been retained and paired with a range of new elements which reflect Mexico‘s rich cultural legacy. Notable features, such as the double door main entrance with original ironmongery, tall ironwork windows, exposed wood beams, tiled bathrooms, and red terrazzo floors, all realised with the help of local artisans. At the back, detached from the main building, an L-shaped four-storey modern structure has been erected, raising the number of guest rooms to 32, and all centred around a sunny patio with swimming pool, a sun deck and lush potted plants. The pads obviously meet the standards of today’s savvy traveller, but also feature an understated design which effortlessly ties in the main building’s architectural heritage. Baja Club Hotel‘s location is ideal as it’s right on the beach and only a stone’s throw away from restaurants, bars, parks, an abundance of public art, and an elaborate range of outdoor activities. However, the hotel offers fun on different levels as well by way of a full-fledged spa with a menu of different treatments and cozy and stylish restaurant concept centred around Greek flavours.
