At Villa Santa Cruz, our sprawling 20-acre property gives guests the utmost in seclusion and quiet, letting you enjoy the luxury of wide open spaces and modern amenities, with the convenience of being close to the charming, colonial town of Todos Santos.
Although the main Villa feels as though it is a piece of Old Mexico, construction was only completed in 2006. Villa Santa Cruz opened as a four-room boutique hotel in 2011, and, over the years, has grown to include a total of eight Rooms and Bungalows, an expanded saltwater Pool and Jacuzzi, oceanside Palapa, and, most recently, an onsite beachfront restaurant, The Green Room. Our guests delight in the slow evolution of the property and the heart that remains intact – an experience that is unscheduled, unhurried and in close connection with the natural beauty and rhythm of Baja.
At Villa Santa Cruz, our morning coffee service, breakfast and lunch are the cornerstones of our hospitality. We begin the day by delivering a tray of coffee/tea to your door at sunrise. Wake up slowly and enjoy a quiet morning that is steeped in the beauty of the surrounding landscape from your private balcony. Join us in the open-air dining area at the main Villa, overlooking the iconic green of the dune mangroves out to the Pacific. Savor a delicious, hearty Mexican breakfast. When you take your seat, you’ll start with freshly squeezed juice, local fruit, and coffee or tea before selecting a main dish from our menu. Chilaquiles, huevos mexicanos, and made-to-order omelets are a few of our crowd-pleasing dishes, prepared by our wonderful Villa Cocina cooks, Isabel and Jazmin, a sister-in-law team that serve up tasty plates inspired by family recipes.
Let your day unfold. Take time to walk the beach and appreciate the solitude in the undeveloped coastline to the north or the relaxed activity to the south at the world famous La Pastora surf break. Lounge at the pool and enjoy a delicious lunch menu featuring classic Mexican cuisine, like tortilla soup, shrimp chile rellenos, chicken tostadas, guacamole and more. All salsas, soups, sauces and tortilla chips are made in-house using simple, fresh, quality ingredients. Lunch is available daily from 12 noon to 2pm from our Villa Cocina.
As the sun begins to go down, walk up the sand dune and climb up into the Crow’s nest of our oceanfront Palapa – here you’ll feel as if you have a front row seat to the sunset. Watch the clouds light up in reds and oranges, reflecting the sun’s golden light. As dusk fades to dark, head out the rustic beach gate and take 188 steps down the sand to dine at the newly-opened, onsite restaurant, The Green Room. The Green Room is a casual dining experience, right on the beach, offering modern Mexican seafood and full bar (from 1pm to 9pm daily). With your toes in the sand and the advancing night sky overhead, end the day with a drink in hand, toasting to the best of the Baja experience.
Each Villa Santa Cruz room/bungalow includes private bathroom, balcony, and ocean view.
