Planning a visit to Mexico? Well soak this in: Viceroy Hotel Group has announced plans for a new luxury hotel in Los Cabos.
The hospitality brand has taken over management of the Hotel Mar Adentro, which was originally created by Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés. The hotel will relaunch as the Viceroy Los Cabos, representing the 14th property for the group, and a member of The Viceroy Icon Collection. The reopening is scheduled for spring 2018, to coincide with its hosting the 2018 “Gala de Danza” dance and music festival.
In a recent interview on Los Cabos’ new rating under the State Department’s revamped travel advisory system, Los Cabos Tourism Board managing director Rodrigo Esponda noted that Aragonés is considered one of the top architects in Mexico. “The architecture is very dramatic,” Esponda said of the property, which is set to undergo a major renovation ahead of its reopening.
Viceroy said that those renovations will be developed in collaboration with Guadalajara-based design firm Al Arquitectura de Interiores, and will include updates to the property’s arrival experience, the addition of a beach bar and beach pool, and an expanded, redesigned fitness center and spa. Additionally, two of the property’s four existing dining outlets will be structurally updated and re-concepted.
Upon completion, Viceroy Los Cabos will have 194 rooms, suites and villas, as well as 50 residences. Other resort amenities will include a movie screening room and versatile meeting spaces.
The property is set on the San José del Cabo beachfront. Nearby, there are opportunities for whale watching, sailing, swimming in the lagoon of La Paz and marine park exploration in Cabo Pulmo Park. The property is also near downtown San José del Cabo.
