T+L Design Awards 2012
Best Small Hotel
Encuentro Guadalupe, Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, Mexico
Designed by Jorge Gracia
The concept at Encuentro Guadalupe is “luxury camping”—20 pristine cabins, crisply modern, are poised on a hillside overlooking Mexican wine country. The 99-acre site also includes a swimming pool, a winery, and a restaurant. But the highlight is the cabins, each with its own terrace warmed by an adobe fireplace, with views of the rugged valley. Doubles from $200.
