Palm-studded beach sanctum
Baja Club Hotel is a 1910 villa and modern extension that’s been given a marvellously minimalist twist, set on the palm-lined Malecón in Mexico’s La Paz. The original colonial-style house, together with its four-storey addition, form a border around a spacious patio of pergolas, trees and potted plants. Inside, however, simplicity doesn’t just reign, it rules with an iron fist. The decor takes its cues from a Mad Men-style ultra-minimalism, with dark-wood cabinetry and headboards, white bed linens and dark bathroom tiles. Candy-striped seat covers on balconies and terraces provide rare playful flourishes. That’s not to say Baja Club is in any way dour: tucked away in a charming walled garden is the photo-ready pool, and right outside is a stunning sandy beach and the relaxed town of La Paz itself. It may lack overt embellishment and fanfare, but if this is the simple life, we’ll take it.
