A First Look at the Todos Santos Boutique Hotel

Baja elegance.

In a Southern Baja surf town, a building constructed in 1890 and once owned by a Spanish countess has been reimagined as the Todos Santos Boutique Hotel that opened earlier this month.

This red-brick hotel features preserved historical details, a calming desert palette, and hand-painted murals inspired by Todos Santos history and created by Productora Productora Design Studio and its art director, Nef Espino. The interior design was undertaken by Oficina Sarmiento Legorreta, based in San Pedro Garza GarcÍa, Mexico.
