The Grand Solmar sets a new standard of luxury in Cabo San Lucas.

With landscaping reminiscent of royal gardens, Old World architecture carefully crafted with modern style and grace and a setting you thought only existed in photographs, the Grand Solmar is unique in a very exclusive class. The creation of this prestigious resort was in the capable hands of Dallas-based architectural firm HKS, renowned for constructing resorts that make the most of their locations while blending harmoniously with their surroundings.

The new resort is perfectly situated amid the unobstructed ocean views, white-sand beaches and remarkable natural beauty that once framed the original Solmar Hotel. The resort itself features handcrafted furnishings, wrought iron and stone finishes, the finest linens and a level of comfort you expect from a destination of this stature. As a guest, you will have access to world-class golf, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, kayaking and just about any other activity you can think of. That includes shopping: Downtown Cabo San Lucas is but a few steps away and teems with distinctive boutiques and world-famous stores. And when the sun sets, you won’t want to miss the nightlife Cabo is famous for.
