Case Study

Celeste Beach Residence & Spa Luxury Living on a Mexican Coastal Hillside

Huatulco, Oaxaca, Mexico

The Challenge

To fulfill stringent environmental requirements through a low-impact master plan, and to pair contemporary Mexican design with the region’s rich history and beauty.

The Design Solution

Perched on forested hillsides and the edges of a secluded beach in Huatulco, Celeste is an intimate collection of 21 residences. Each residence, showcasing Zapotec and contemporary Mexican architecture, has panoramic views of Tejoncito Bay. This imaginative fusion is incorporated within the Beach Grille, the spa and fitness area, and the arrival palapa, situated on a hillside with dramatic ocean views.

The Design Impact

It is one of just three locations in the world to receive Green Globe 21 Certification for its low-impact master plan.
