I was recently invited by the management team of Auberge Chileno Bay to visit their property for a short stay. This is the resort in Los Cabos, Mexico where our Luna Zorro custom robes are featured, a fantastic project you can read more about here.
Obviously, I jumped at the opportunity. Not only was I super excited to see our robes "in their element" but I was really looking forward to meeting our client face-to-face and saying thank you in person. So, with my husband along for the ride, we jumped on a plane and proceeded to live a dream for the next 48 hours.
I knew what we were getting into, I mean, I've never seen an Auberge property that wasn't stunning. But, I don't think I was totally prepared for the level of luxury we experienced. There is truly not one single detail unfinished, not one unique touch overlooked.
Chileno Bay is located in the southernmost tip of Baja. Set in a protected cove on the Sea of Cortez, the emerald, indigo waters are home to a coral reef. The architecture pays it's respects to the desert terrain, built in warms shades and tones that allow it to blend into the setting. The landscape is a mix of crystal beige sandstone, sage green fan palms, fuchsia flowered cacti, and pale pink bougainvillea where it abruptly meets the coast and fades into the horizon.
The resort features a seemingly endless curation of artisan pieces, mostly sourced in Oaxaca and Guadalajara, Mexico. Tiles and ceramics, wrought iron, wicker and textiles. The overall palette is a modern combination of grays, white, and black, complimented by tropical hardwoods and glass and leather, presented in the warmest possible way.
By morning, as we sipped coffee overlooking the ocean, we were served fluffy biscuits with orange honey butter while waiting for Huevos Rancheros and green juice. I would just sit and stare at the seamless transition from copper flatware to handmade plates and glasses, wondering what kind of design genius was behind this whole operation.
Afternoons were a lazy combination of swimming in the mosaic tiled infinity pools, paddle boarding and snorkeling, fish tacos, margaritas and naps. Somebody pinch me.
Our bathroom was scented with bath salts and locally made soaps. The main restaurant, Comal, overflowed with Mezcal, sashimi, oysters, fresh tortillas, a beautiful wine list, and coconut ice cream. Sea breezes passed through the sheer curtains in the bedroom. Our own private outdoor shower. Desert hiking trails along the water. It was all top notch.
And intertwined with all of this exquisite beauty, were our handwoven robes. To see them featured in such an incredible setting was really, really cool. To know that our products are not only valued for how and where they are made, but that they can stand their own in such a high-end, resort-scale setting, is a testament to our designs.
And I'm really proud of that.
So thank you Auberge Chileno Bay, not just for the stay of a lifetime, but for recognizing that artisan made products that tell a story can be luxurious while also adding a human connection to the guest experience. And thank you, for the reminder that this whole adventure of building Luna Zorro, is making a positive impact on so many levels.
