Ritz-Carlton to Develop Reserve Brand in Los Cabos

It appears the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand has some legs. Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company will operate a Ritz-Carlton Reserve to be developed in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. The Reserve brand currently numbers just one: Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, in Thailand.

The hotel is set to open in 2014 with a location along 800 feet of oceanfront on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. We hear it will include 124 private, single-story, oceanfront villas, each with view across the Sea of Cortez. Herve Humler, president of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, said the company had been looking in Mexico for potential deals for years. "The concept of the resort is simple and yet exudes style and luxurious levels of comfort. It will provide a complete escape to the unexpected; a private, exclusive leisure experience that blends unique elements of the local culture, history, and heritage with intuitive individual service, exquisite indigenous design, casual ambiance, and respect for the surrounding environment," he said.

The Reserve brand is said to draw its design inspiration from "the unique environment in which each property is based."

The hotel will offer one, two and three-bedroom villas, each with private infinity plunge pools, outdoor terraces with fireplaces, outdoor showers and butler service. Additional resort features and amenities within the Puerto Los Cabos mixed-use development include a spa, Desert Botanical Theme Park, Fisherman's Wharf, a 500-slip marina, two private championship golf courses, designed by Jack Nicklaus & Greg Norman, and proximity to the town of San Jose del Cabo and the airport.
