A boutique spa hotel in the middle of a historical Mexican village – this description alone peaked our interest here at Black Tomato. Taking the spa philosophy into every aspect of the hotels operations, the enthusiastic staff exist solely to pamper and cater to your every need. With a dedication to organic and locally sourced ingredients, the Guyacura restaurant is another highlight. You will savour the outstanding blend of Mediterranean and Mexican flavours with a wide assortment of seafood drawn straight from the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean – it doesn’t get much fresher.
Located in the village of Todos Santos, Guaycura manages to preserve peace and tranquillity while still maintaining a close proximity to the bustling, bohemian town centre. The sheer number of well-preserved historical buildings earned Todos Santos the designation of Pueblo Mágico by the Mexican government. Artist, artisans and musicians have set up shop in this quaint little village and an abundance of galleries, shops and studios reflect the village’s active bohemian community – Guaycura even houses its own private gallery.
A modern and open concept is enhanced by rustic features such a wood beamed ceilings and antique copper bathtubs. Large picture windows and your own private terrace ensure that the mountain and ocean views can be enjoyed from the privacy of your own room. Your room becomes an extension of the hotels spa with the oversized bathroom highlighted by a spacious shower cabin.
Why We Like It
We love the juxtaposition of a tranquil boutique hotel caught in the middle of a historical bohemian village like Todos Santos. The picturesque rooftop sky deck is not to be missed. Caught between the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, take in the view while cooling down in the Venetian tiled pool or sipping cocktails from the rooftop sky bar and lounge. Glass panels line the wide open sky deck as no details were overlooked in taking advantage of the 360 degree view.
