Opened in 2018 on Baja’s Pacific Coast, the Grand Solmar Rancho San Lucas is the first phase of a 834-acre private resort community, where guests have access to the grounds’ private beach, shopping, restaurants and entertainment; a Greg Norman-designed golf course is slated to open May 2019. Borrowing from the surrounding desert landscape, the resort is decorated with earth tones and natural elements like hardwood, tile and marble. The property bellies up to the beach and incorporates an abundance of greenery and water features, including a lazy river and saltwater lagoon.
Accommodations at the all-suite property have views of the desert or the sea from private terraces and are equipped with kitchens, indoor Jacuzzi tubs, wet bars, marble floors, separate living rooms and dining areas. All suites are outfitted with free Wi-Fi and king size beds, upgrades are available for additional bedrooms and bathrooms, sleeping as many as four guests.
Anica, the hotel’s signature restaurant, serves locally sourced seafood and coastal cuisine with the option to dining indoors or alfresco near the fire pits. Oceanfront snacks, including salads, sushi and sandwiches, are on the menu at Aqua Grill & Bar, while coffee and smoothies are available all day at the Deli Café. For drinks, guests can sip handcrafted cocktails at the Lagoon Bar or pair mai thais with fish tacos at the Tide Bar, adjacent to the infinity pool.
The resort features an infinity pool with swim-up bar, private cabanas poolside and spa offering many treatments with organic ingredients. Guests can book day trips to swim with dolphins, fish off the coast of Baja, sightsee in historic Todos Santos or sail to El Arco, one of Cabo’s most recognizable natural attractions.
