As part of our green living vacation series, we decided to bring to you yet another leading green resorts .
Set along the private white sand beaches of Playa Solmar at the very southernmost tip, Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa is uniquely situated.
The intricate sustainable designs with window to the sea archway and infiniti pools contouring the resort like a lover’s arms, have raised the bars of peaceful luxury.
Amenities include 119 suites with 6 different types of suites, from studios to four-bedroom penthouses. All suites offer fully equipped kitchens with state-of-the-art appliances, in-villa dining and spa experience, private terraces, flat-screen TVs and luxurious bathrooms with steam showers, daily maid service and night turn-down service.
Some of the features guests can enjoy:
Two gourmet restaurants, three poolside bars, four infinity-edge heated pools
Many activities including fishing and breathtaking sunsets.
Grand Solmar aims at being a pioneer in the greener Cabo:
- Chef uses organic and natural products
- Water is pumped from the sea
- Energy saving device in all rooms with smart key cards to automatically turn on the lights
- Air conditioning system that automatically shuts off when windows open
- Attractive landscaping which requires half the irrigation levels typically used by similar resorts
- Linens in the rooms are organic and housekeeping uses environmentally safe cleaning products.
- Recycling and composting are a given
If going to the Spa make sure you ask for The Repechage Sea Escape, which consists of a stone facial and body therapy designed to melt your stress away. The Sea of Cortes Pure Body Revival is also favorite and provides rehydration using a hot oil therapy with hot stone relaxing massage followed by a cooling facial.
A main focus of the resort is its dining experience at La Roca Restaurant. The kitchen is run by Chef Hector Lucas, whose cooking concept is ‘Mediterranean Baja style cuisine with an exotic flair’.
Lucas kindly agreed to share with our readers one of his summer favorite: the Grand Solmar Lobster Salad. Click here for the recipe.
Director of beverages is Maestro Eduardo Gonzalez Robles. Eduardo concocts the finest organic drinks and is the creator of flagship drink: The Grand Solmar Vita Verde (Green Life) dedicated to the green resort.
