This hotel is undoubtedly one of the greatest jewels of Mexico, since its unique location in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, together with its contemporary architecture and colorful design makes it the perfect destination for those who want to spend a special vacation in one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Visiting Hotel San Cristóbal is to travel back in time to feel the atmosphere of Baja in the 70s, and at the same time to pause and contemplate the simple beauties of life. It was designed by renowned Texas Architecture firm Lake|Flato in collaboration with Texas based hospitality company Bunkhouse; its 32 beachfront rooms and public spaces feature both indoor and outdoor experiences, all which overlook picturesque Punta Lobos and the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains.
We´ve got interesting news directly from Todos Santos, which will be very useful if you are thinking of making a trip to this fabulous paradise.
Enjoy your meal at Benno.
Mexican Chef Dahli La Peña and well-known Austin Chef Lou Lambert are the fascinating minds behind Benno, the hotel’s oceanfront restaurant inspired by the flavors of Baja with a Mediterranean sensibility. Last summer the spot received a light renovation, adding stunning pieces such as wood work from Rene Nieto, a Mexican artist based in Puebla, along with black and white Equipale furniture, in addition to Oaxacan textiles and new lighting. You may also now notice “fish scale” tiles in shades of blue throughout the space, which give the restaurant such a refreshing touch. From the fish that is bought every day from the fishermen of Punta Lobos, to the beautiful products sourced locally, the menu highlights the freshest ingredients from the region and season.
