Grand Velas Los Cabos will join the ranks of hotels at the upmarket resort on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula this November.
The $150 million resort will operate on an all-inclusive basis and will feature 306 ocean-view suites, three infinity pools, a contemporary art gallery, 20-room spa and six duplex wellness suites.
The two-storey wellness suites come with their own Life Fitness recline bike, spa concierge, Vitamin C sprinkler, crudites mini-bar, juice bars, aromatherapy kit and in-suite massage availability.
Playing on its Mexican roots, guests arriving at the resort will also be given an exclusive bottle of custom-made mezcal as a welcome amenity.
The location of the resort, between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, allows for some of the world’s best whale watching opportunities and its proximity to the wine region of Baja is being used to offer wine pairings at dinner, selected from the vineyards in Ensenada.
On-property dining experiences will include signature restaurant Cocina de Autor, Frida, which will offer Mexican fine dining and Piaf, serving French gourmet specialities.
Designers Roberto Elias and Ernesto Vela have created the contemporary Mexican style of the resort, where all suites have ocean views, private terraces and plunge pools.
For families, Grand Velas’ Kids’ Club will offer activities such as treasure hunting and cooking classes while the Teen’s Club for 13-18 year olds will have a vintage dance floor and extensive games room in a contemporary space.
The hotel is 35 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport and faces the merging waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific ocean.
