Viceroy Hotel and Residences, San José del Cabo, Mexico

Amid the color and vibrancy that is Mexico, the hypermodern 205-room Viceroy in San José del Cabo stands out as an oasis of tranquility. Contemporary architect Miguel Ángel Aragonés reinforces his unique take on luxury with the striking design, where each room and residence seems to float over the water like a small, perfect isle.

Viceroy is a surreal dreamscape by the sea. It’s truly a poetic property where gravity doesn’t seem to exist. The cactus-studded grounds flow into an archipelago of stark white cubes and sinuous dark stone walkways that meld into the horizon while connecting the pool, hotel, and restaurant—creating a beautiful promenade from which guests can take in the architecture.

The impressive view of the Sea of Cortez is the project’s focal point, however, perhaps the biggest design statement is the hotel’s centerpiece: a large reflective pool and a spectacular woven egg-shaped restaurant made with branches recycled by local fishermen. Reminiscent of a bird’s nest found in nature, the restaurant structure appears to float on the water that surrounds it.

Outstanding Ocean Views Graciously Complement Minimalist Aesthetics

The hotel’s high-tech cubic units come appointed with tasteful Poliform furniture and crisp white linens, private outdoor spaces, tablets, and customizable lighting schemes. Water flows and outlines the hotel while dazzling architecture, sleek interior design, and state-of-the-art facilities combine to make Viceroy in San José del Cabo one of Baja California’s most spectacular luxury resorts.
