There is no room service here, no reception desk and no bartender to shake your cocktails at a fancy hotel bar. But there is a laundry machine on the roof, a self-serve bar by the pool, and free coffee in the guest kitchen.
There are also eight wonderfully minimalist rooms, all with concrete floors and a floating concrete bed, yoga mats, snorkel gear and bikes for all guests and a palm filled courtyard with a bonfire for cozy evening hangouts. Sounds like my idea of a great place to stay, especially when it is located in San José del Cabo in Mexico! (Yes, I am very tired of the long Scandinavian winter by now. Please give me some heat and sun!)
”Drift was created for the independent traveler – inspired by the idea of “traveling without a destination”. The first location, in San Jose del Cabo’s Historic Art District, is the prototype for a series of hotels that fill a niche between boutique and youth hostel – and provide young adventurers an alternative to all-inclusive package tourism. Drift is designed to promote social interaction with a pared down, do-it-yourself atmosphere. The rooms have a basic and open concept, influenced by industrial urban lofts and Baja ranch architecture.”
