Something amazing is happening in Baja California. Behold a hotel that allows you to customize your accommodation with a tablet. Pick the color of your closet, the fixtures, all via an app. Press a button and change the temperature and lighting, inform the staff on food allergies, request a pillow…and, and, and.
The motto of the brand new Mar Adentro by Encanto is “Select your style, design your home and make it yours.” Designed by lauded Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés, the five-star luxury hotel complex in San Jose del Cabo offers its guests tablets that were custom-created and programmed by High Tech Services in Mexico City, in order to enable them hyper control of their environment. So they can get what they need without having to interact with staff – for absolute privacy and relaxation.
The idea is to offer visitors a casual, hands-off canvas they can personalize according to their desires. Lodging options range from estates with several bedrooms to apartments, junior penthouses and more. In all, there are 18 estates, 83 suites and 106 private residences.
The ultra modern design is a dream in concrete and glass, sleek and chic with ample use of stark, clean white and sophisticated cube structures that appear to float in the sea.
Mar Adentro will feature Wi-Fi throughout, five top restaurants, the holistic Mar Abierto Spa, an art gallery, a movie theater, private pools, private butler and chef service, a shopping plaza, an artist-in-residence music program in conjunction with Los Angeles’ music venue Hotel Café, and top amenities from Miele, Samsung, Poliform, Nespresso etc.
Also check out Aragonés’ design for The Encanto Hotel in Acapulco. The self-taught architect writes on his site: “An architect who attends only to the emotional side makes his work into a kind of sculpture, something more akin to an artistic venture. It is very tempting for architects to feel as if we were artists, but we are in fact a hybrid that must be well grounded, that must take into account the specific needs of those who will inhabit the spaces we create. And by this I am referring to their spiritual, physical, and economic needs.”
