Experts in aquatic design, Cloward H2O, have completed the aquatics for the new properties in the Solmar Hotels and Resorts collection in Mexico.
The Grand Solmar at Rancho at San Lucas and The Grand Solmar The Residences covers 834 acres. 89 ocean-front suites are among the hotel and residential properties. The resort, part of the Solmar Collection, is on the southern tip of the Baja peninsula in Mexico’s Baja California Sur.
Cloward H2O worked on a variety of aquatic amenities at the resort. These included the engineering and design of the 0.96 million-gallon saltwater lagoon. The lagoon is fed by water pumped from wells on the beach. It also functions as a water source for the resort’s desalination operation supplying portable water to the resort.
The Solmar Collection
The company delivered two 90,000 gallon infinity pools, with bar and submerged table seating. In addition, a lounge shelf allows guests to relax in the pool and scenic beach dune.
Cloward H2O also completed five jacuzzi spas and a children’s pool with interactive spray toys. In addition they added two water slides and a rooftop pool for a wide range of aquatic amenities at the resort.
The project was in collaboration with HKS Architects and TBG Partners.
