{Travel} Hotel Endémico Resguardo Silvestre

by kate on February 14, 2012


Last year we found ourselves drooling over the island-tropical-meets-pared-down-minimalist style of the Hotel Azúcar near Verucruz, Mexico. As it turns out, the Azúcar is just one of many uniquely designed properties operated by Grupo Habita. Founded with the mission to build not just creative hotels by unforgettable experiences, Grupo Habita has expanded in recent years to include twelve hotels in Mexico and one, Hôtel Americano, in New York.

Their newset addition to the roster the Hotel Endémico Resguardo Silvestre, a cluster of twenty units nestled on the hillside in Baja California, Mexico. The compact cabins feature clean, ultra modern interiors and a slatted wood deck and fireplace for star gazing; the property also has a pool and a restaurant overseen by the Culinary Institute of Tijuana. The property was designed by San Diego-based architects Gracia Studio to blend into the landscape and offer completely unobstructed views of the vineyards below. I can only imagine what it must be like to stay in such an incredible setting, and I’m waiting, practically with plane ticket in hand, for the opening of this gorgeous hotel. You can find out more about the Hotel Endémico, and the rest of their properties, by contacting Grupo Habita here.

I have lived in Tijuana all my life, and i must say, these slum type tiny houses is precisely what plagued the hills of Tijuana and Ensenada for decades turning beautiful natural habitat into an Eye-soar, now it’s the new trend in Architecture. wow!

Hi Rafael,

I’m sorry you feel that way. I can’t say I’m familiar with the slums of Tijuana, but I don’t think that tiny houses on the hillside in anyway create an eyesore, especially when they are carefully considered, thoughtfully designed buildings. We’ll have to agree to disagree on the beauty of these cabins.
