Austin’s Liz Lambert brings her impeccable aesthetic south of the border with Hotel San Cristóbal.
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
