Last week, we relied on the deck chairs at this emerald green pool to get us out of a little bout of winter blues. But where are they? No, it’s not an Aman Resort, although we can see that comparison - both SFHotelGuy and nickdla guessed it right: we were hinting at Hotel Endémico in Ensenada, Mexico.

Part of Grupo Habita (which includes the likes of Hotel Americano in New York and Condesa DF in Mexico City), Endémico has just 20 luxury cabins, scattered on a hillside overlooking the wine region of the Baja Peninsula.

Fitted with king or twin beds, the cabins are fairly minimalistic in virtually all-white, focusing the attention on the view through the large windows and from the terrace, with kiva fireplace. The airy lobby has the same views, and a pool bar offers refreshments and light dishes.

Ensenada is about a 100 miles from the United States border and Tijuana. Cabins start at around $170 in March. Based on nickdla’s comments, we had a quick look at TripAdvisor to see what guest feedback there is available. Most reviews so far are positive, with highlights being the views, the pool, and ability to get away from it all. Aside from a few service issues, the difficulty of dealing with bad weather in a property like this and the lack of food options aside from the outdoor bar at the pool are mainly mentioned. Have you stayed at Hotel Endémico and want to share your experience? Tell us more in the comments!
