After successfully launching a brand new 3D printed luxury hotel in Tulum and another one in Namibia, Habitas recently revealed that they are expanding. Habitas has set their sights on Todos Santos, Mexico, just north of Los Cabos. Just a one-hour drive north from the San Jose del Cabo International Airport, the new Habitas Todos Santos is located right on the beach along the Pacific Ocean. To describe it a bit, the new 3D printed luxury hotel in Todos Santos will span 24 acres along the coast. This will mark Habitas’ second location in Mexico following the 2017 launch of their flagship location in Tulum, Mexico.
Watch Habitas build the entire 3D printed luxury hotel at the Todos Santos property in just four months! And, just like all of their other properties, Habitas Todos Santos will operate under the Habitas brand. Also, it will offer an experience and lifestyle that is focused on sustainability, wellness, experiences and community. Therefore, in Todos Santos, Habitas will redefine the concept of traditional luxury right before your eyes.
Unique 3D printed luxury hotel construction
With its unique construction, the 3D printed luxury hotel project in Todos Santos will be done using Habitas’ own innovative build model. They will construct this magnificent hotel using 3D printing in their own factory floor. Then, they will assemble the hotel on-site in Todos Santos using only materials that are completely sustainable. Next, they will use building practices that ensure a low environmental impact throughout the entire project.
3D printed luxury hotel boasts no permanent environmental changes
Developers are now claiming that the unique approach of building a 3D printed luxury hotel does not include making permanent changes to the environment. This is mainly due to the fact that most of the construction work is performed off site. The founders of Habitas decided to build their own factory along the east coast of Mexico, near Tulum. As such, they chose to build modular structures using 3D printing technology. After build, they are put into containers and shipped to the final location. Once on site, the project will come together like Lego blocks. That is how the Todos Santos 3D printed luxury hotel project will only take four months to complete.
80 rooms in two phases
Habitas will offer 80 rooms in total, built in two phases. And the highlights of this new property will be truly stunning! For example, there will be an ocean-front pool with panoramic views of the Pacific. Also, you will find a holistic spa, an organic herb garden, and an exquisite farm-to-table restaurant that will truly satisfy your appetite any time of the day.
Broad range of programming offered
At the new Habitas in Todos Santos, there will be a broad range of programming that will be available for guests. The programs include diving in Cabo Pulmo, hiking excursions and thrilling mountain biking in and around the Sierra de la Laguna, surfing the big Pacific waves, various fishing tours, and Habitas’ beautiful Sunset Sessions with crackling bonfires. Also, there will be Quetzal Sound Sensoroma, which are sound meditations that offer a higher level of relaxation that you must experience for yourself.
Habitas CEO and co-founder Oliver Ripley
The CEO of Habitas, Oliver Ripley, has co-founded the Habitas brand back in 2016. Joined by the other two co-founders, Eduardo Castillo and Kfir Levy, they launched the spectacular Tulum property back in 2017. This proves their success with this outstanding and unique 3D printed luxury hotel construction model. Now they will do it again in Mexico!
Commenting on this brand new 3D printed luxury hotel in Todos Santos Oliver Ripley mentioned that it is far removed from the energy of Cabo San Lucas. He went on to talk about how Todos Santos is an incredibly beautiful and historical town. Next, he discussed the fact that a very magical group of people already live there. He said that he and his co-founders fell in love with the people there and wanted to do something in that region…Todos Santos.
After their initial search, Oliver Ripley and the other co-founders discovered an incredible beach property that simply blew them away. Located on periphery of the town, it is within walking distance from the town center of Todos Santos. This location offers the the best of both worlds with a location that is both secluded and close to town.
Supporting the local communities
Oliver Ripley stated that the local community is also at the heart of the Habitas brand. He says that they empower local communities through vocational training followed by jobs. Also, they create sustainable micro-economies by purchasing a local supply chain of food and furniture for use within each 3D printed luxury hotel.
Having the goal to continue building sustainable resorts, Oliver Ripley says that Habitas will continue using a small footprint. He says that Habitas is able to truly be sustainable after they build from the materials that they choose. Then, they will minimize any permanent structure. They use a lot of laminated lumber and beams to reduce lumber usage. Every actual tree that they use, they replant in the local communities where they are building. For example, in Namibia they are fully off the grid. They are using Tesla solar batteries to pump 30,000 litres of water per day from a well over 2km away from the hotel. Finally, they are using that and recycling it for irrigation and being fully sustainable from power, water, and waste.
Habitas is passionate about building a better future
Stating that it has been a humbling journey building the purpose around Habitas, Oliver Ripley said that everyone on the Habitas team is passionate about building a better future. As such, they are going into the local communities and resourcing their teams from there. They go in and set up a pop-up school at each location. Then, they take them through a training program followed by employment. They do this because, at the end of the day, they desire to be welcomed into local homes by local people. So they have now made a commitment that every single project they execute is going to be the foundation for creating sustainable, viable economies wherever they build.
Looking ahead, Habitas has an aggressive launch pipeline over the next 12 to 24 months using the new 3D printed luxury hotel build model. Additional properties are also planned in San Miguel de Allende as well as four more properties in Mexico, Costa Rica, the Middle East and several properties in Bhutan near the Six Senses and Aman. Therefore, look for much more to come!
