Ground has broken for Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos, which is slated to open in June of 2017. Solaz will be Starwood's first Luxury Collection hotel in Los Cabos and the brand's seventh hotel in Mexico, following the recent conversion of Las Alcobas in Mexico City.

"As an architectural sculpture that pays tribute to the contemporary art of Mexico, Solaz will be the perfect fit for The Luxury Collection brand," says Patricio del Portillo, director of development and acquisitions for Mexico and Central America, Starwood Hotels and Resorts. "It is designed to immerse our discerning global guests and residents in the indigenous beauty of the destination, while delivering the unparalleled luxury service the brand is known for."

Situated at the southern-most tip of Baja California Sur, Solaz will feature 131 guestrooms and suites in five distinct six-floor buildings, three restaurants, including an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant, and a pool area grill. In addition to offering an expansive pool and beach deck that spans more than 26,000 square feet, the luxury resort will also feature a spa and fitness facility spanning approximately 12,500 square feet, three tennis courts, and miles of walking and running paths. Solaz will have more than 9,900 square feet of state-of-the-art event space.
