Paradero Todos Santos was named as one of Vogue’s 23 most anticipated hotel openings of 2021, and we believe that it truly lives up to this title. Following with our "Best Wellness Hotels and Spas in the World" Series, this hotel should be on your list. Sustainable, scenic, and filled with adventure, this is a great stress relieving hotel for the adventurous traveller. As Paradero say, ‘Todos Santos is a bohemian surf town with astounding natural beauty, a red-hot culinary scene, and 355 days of sunshine per year’. Here, we share information on their accommodation and the activities they carry, however be sure to keep your eye out for our Print Magazine 8 to read more about the wellness programs and sustainable features at Paradero.
Paradero has several accommodation options, with their Sky Suites and Garden Suites being the main variations. Sky Suites are characterised by their panoramic rooftops with ‘star nets’ that are suspended. The views from the Sky Suites are astonishing, with picturesque farmlands and mountains for guests to look out on. Garden Suites are ground floor rooms with an expansive outdoor terrace. Paradero say that ‘some Garden Suites offer views of the farming fields while others look out to the mountainous desert’.
An example of a Sky Suite is the ‘Farm View Sky Suite’, which is the perfect option for 2 guests. Containing a king bed, A/C, and an indoor-outdoor rain shower, along with a private terrace and rooftop, the ‘Farm View Sky Suite’ would be ideal for pairs. The ‘Garden Suite with Soak Tub’ room, one of the Garden Suites, is also ideal for 2 guests. It has a king or double bed along with a daybed, a private terrace with a tub, and a lounging area. Gorgeous views of the cactus garden, farming fields, and desert mountains can be soaked in from this suite. Guests are totally immersed in nature.
Paradero Todos Santos offer a wide variety of activities, which they list are ‘surfing, biking, hiking, birdwatching, horseback riding, farming, fishing, whale watching, and the list goes on’. This particular hotel draws in adventurous souls looking for escape through immersion in the outdoors. Guests here are encouraged to participate in a myriad of experiences in order to make the most of their visit.
The hotel shares that, ‘the experiences on offer include surfing at Cerritos or San Pedrito beach, guided hiking and mountain biking along the bluffs of the Pacific coast, hands-on farming tutorials, Baja taco tours, ocean safaris and fishing expeditions, cooking classes, cliffside champagne and burrito tastings, and yoga and fitness’. They also ensure guests are supported, and say, ‘Local guides are passionate about delivering outdoor experiences that combine physical challenge and intellectual stimulation with a heavy dose of “wow” factor. Guides quickly assess skill and comfort levels, customising each adventure to keep guests safe, smiling, and eager for more’.
