Since open­ing ear­lier this year, Ho­tel San Cristóbal in To­dos San­tos— Aus­ti­nite Liz Lam­bert’s first ho­tel out­side of Texas—has drawn an im­pres­sive crowd, in­clud­ing north- and south-of-the-bor­der pho­tog­ra­phers, in­te­rior de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects, mu­sic and fash­ion in­dus­try types and the like. It’s a pretty typ­i­cal mix for Lam­bert, founder of Bunkhouse Group, which in­cludes Austin’s Ho­tel San José, the Ho­tel Saint Ce­cilia and the Austin Mo­tel, as well as the Ho­tel Ha­vana in San An­to­nio and El Cos­mico in Marfa. In To­dos, a small town about 45 min­utes north of Cabo, she’s cre­ated a 34-room gem (de­signed by San An­to­nio’s Lake|Flato ar­chi­tects), the only prop­erty of its kind in town and the only one on the beach. Al­most ev­ery room has a view of the wa­ter, as well as out­door space, some with out­door tubs and/or show­ers, and fur­nish­ings sourced mostly in Mex­ico (ex­cep­tions in­clude the Co­co­mat mat­tresses, Sferra sheets, Malin + Goetz prod­ucts in the bath­room and the custom robes). A shaman who gives pri­vate sun­rise cleanses and a mas­sage ther­a­pist who of­fers reiki are avail­able to guests, as is the op­tion for pri­vate din­ing in a va­ri­ety of spots. Rooms from $285, san­cristo­bal­baja.com
