THE ANTI-RESORT. Staggered among boulders on a secluded hill in the wine-growing region of Valle de Guadalupe, these luxury cabins bring guests into direct contact with nature. Blending seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, the expansive views of the mountains and fertile wine-growing soils are given pride of place.
The Resguardo Ecolofts, Spanish for Wilderness Shelter, was designed to highlight the isolation of the desert, singling out the area’s indigenous qualities – something architect Jorge Gracia planned to emphasize. Situated just one and a half hours from San Diego, California, this unique landscape is home to some of Mexico’s largest wineries and offers a blend of Mexican culture and artisanal activity. To complement the Antiresort’s location, the property was designed by a hand-selected local team, who worked in collaboration with Gracia Studio to give it a distinct ambience.
Each of the 20 luxury cabins has unobstructed views of the valley. On the private wooden terraces, guests can sit under a blanket of stars and sip regional wines while being warmed by a roaring fire. Minimal and understated the cabins may be, but modern comforts and deluxe touches have not been overlooked. Monochromatic and with an edited selection of furnishings, they provide comfortable spaces for retreat.
From the pool, guests can soak up the calming solitude, while gazing out over the vast expanse. And although the location is remote, the onsite restaurant and bar ensure every comfort is met.
