San Francisco Design Firm Commands the Sea of Cortez

Chileno Bay Resort & Residences: A bathroom, featuring multi-toned encaustic tile in a mix of modern geometrics and traditional patterns, has the appearance of an art installation, using colors inspired by indigenous cactus, agave and cerulean blue waters.


Sometimes inspiration is right at your doorstep, and that’s certainly the case at Chileno Bay Resort & Residences overlooking the Sea of Cortez on Mexico’s western coastline. San Francisco-based interior design firm BAMO took visual cues from this blissful seaside location, designing a color palette to suit the tropical surroundings in the resort’s Brisa Del Mar Villa. From endless water views framed by towering windows to seamless indoor/outdoor living, the aesthetic reflects the spirit of Los Cabos.

Guests receive a refreshing taste of Baja and a whole new standard of extravagance at this breezy property. Nestled alongside a protected cove amid natural reefs and tranquil waters, the resort imparts a clean, modernist design intent, first-rate service and coveted location on Cabo’s best beach. Whether you choose a sumptuous resort room or one of the expansive villas, all guests enjoy five-star amenities, including multiple restaurants, a 7,500-square-foot spa, fitness center with classes, sports center, Pescaditos kids’ program, three-tiered oceanfront pool and use of the members-only Chileno Bay Club golf course designed by Tom Fazio.

“The design intent was to be youthful but authentic, fresh and unexpected,” says Janet Mercier, an associate at BAMO. “Interior spaces are simple and modern, flowing easily from one to the next and beyond. Expansive floor-to-ceiling glass wall systems open up wide to blur the line between indoors and out.”

This vacation villa is located within the 1,200-acre resort, where a strong design connection throughout the property establishes its identity while taking a welcome break from traditional Mexican architectural and interior expectations. The villa incorporates handcrafted tiles, contemporary artwork, locally-sourced furnishings and striking finishes created by regional artisans.
