Villa Santa Cruz is a boutique beach resort, dedicated to embracing the natural rhythm of Baja—not interrupting it. Todos Santos is a unique haven where nature meets luxury: a laid-back surf town with fun-filled activities, contrasted against a tranquil, serene landscape for those who hope to escape their daily hustle and bustle. Visit Villa Santa Cruz’s gorgeous Tented Ocean Suites on a secluded beach, eat delicious fresh food, and immerse yourself in the culture of Baja. There are a million reasons for indulging in a beautiful vacation, but here is our Top Ten list about why glamping in Todos Santos is something you cannot skip!
1) It’s unique and sophisticated
Villa Santa Cruz’s glamping amenities have the vibe of “glamping,” without any of the sacrifice that is part of normal camping. With luxury bathrooms including soaker tubs, air conditioning and high quality bedding, you’ll experience glamping in the most luxurious of ways. Order food and drinks straight to your room, ask our staff to light your bonfire as the day turns to night and enjoy a sweet treat with turndown service.
2) Adventure is out there
Along with its beautiful views, Baja is also known for its adventurous spirit. Our hotel offers an array of activities ranging from island boat rides to ATVing on the desert terrain of Baja. On top of that, Todos Santos is a surf town, with several well-known surf breaks in the area. We will gladly arrange board rental services and/or lessons for those who want to experience the life of a local. If the waves aren’t for you, you can still take in panoramic ocean views with a pacific bluffs hike or a Sierra ranch trek. Early morning walks on the beach are another benefit of choosing glamping.
3) Vitamin Sea
Nature is healing. Ocean water is dense with minerals like magnesium, which soothes the body, helps relieve stress, and allows for a deep sleep. Thalassotherapy is a form of sea therapy which supports psychological well-being and strengthens the body’s immune system through water stimulation. Along with the benefits of aerobic exercise, taking a surfing lesson can be a perfectly refreshing workout. For those who want to venture out, located 25 minutes south of Villa Santa Cruz is Playa Cerritos with a a beautiful sandy beach, perfect for beginning swimmers and surfers, to the most advanced. It is safe for swimming and spending the day out. You can also take a dip in our saltwater pool and jacuzzi to cool off during the day or stargaze at night.
4) Meet new friends
Baja California Sur is known for preserving its marine life. Though many travel here for bird or whale watching, you can help with the release of hatching turtles through the non-profit group, Tortugueros Las Playitas. Help increase the sea turtle population by helping the little babies crawl towards the water and avoid predators. It is a memorable experience for all.
5) Multiple options
Our resort offers a few different accommodation styles, to suit all guests. Unlike other glamping hotels, we offer the utmost in service, delivering a tray of coffee/tea to your door each morning and, upon request, a room service delivery of a full Mexican breakfast start the day right.
The Tented Ocean Suites were designed with all the comforts of a hotel room, a spacious and private bathroom, double vanity, separate shower and soaker bathtub. Its ocean view and comfortable patio allow guests to enjoy a bonfire, accompanied by a symphony of waves crashing in the background.
The Beach View Bungalows offer a panoramic view of the beach and white water views. Their secluded entrance, accessed through a wooden bridge, sets aside these rooms for a more private feel. Their private decks are perfect for disconnecting in this star-studded beach paradise.
The Bungalow Double Queen Coco provides a great option for families as it has two queen beds. It is located in a building just to the south of the Main Villa, is on the ground floor, and is just steps to the oceanfront restaurant, The Green Room. Its beautifully tiled patios are perfect for relaxing in your home away from home.
We have additional suites and rooms in our North Villa and Main Villa.
6) Breathtaking views (and Instagram posts)
Glamping in Todos Santos should be at the top of your bucket list. Todos Santos’ beaches are breathtakingly pristine, with mesmerizing sunsets in which the sun dips into the Pacific and spectacular sunrises over the Sierra de Laguna Mountains. Dotted throughout the landscape, you’ll find tall saguaro cacti, set against the backdrop of the mountains. Contrast the desert against the infinite views of the ocean, and you have what you need for the perfect Instagram post – a true desert oasis. Visit Playa Las Palmas and Playa Los Cerritos and capture gorgeous sunsets which need no filter. You’ll have friends DMing requests for travel tips and recommendations.
