Las Ventanas al Paraiso has unveiled 12 new luxury villas, offering butler service and more.
Los Cabos is bullish on raising its upscale profile. Some new hotels targeting the well-heeled traveler have opened over the last several months and more are on the way. Meanwhile, new and established properties alike are ramping up their luxury offerings. Here are some of the more noteworthy developments.
In March, AMResorts officially inaugurated Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort in grand style with none other than Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto leading the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Every guest has a private in-suite balcony or terrace, 24-hour room service, daily refreshed minibar and more. AMResorts’ Unlimited-Luxury concept ensures that guests can enjoy all the food and top-shelf alcohol they want at 13 restaurants, bars and lounges. There is also the Secrets Spa by Pevonia, a beach and two pools.
Over the winter, Las Ventanas al Paraiso unveiled 12 new exclusive luxury villas. They range from one to three bedrooms and have a private infinity pool and swim-up bar, as well as an open-air bathroom with steam and rain showers, infinity bathtub, private outdoor garden patio and access to the beach. Amenities include a 24-hour butler who delivers complimentary breakfast daily, home-made guacamole and margaritas in the afternoon, and daily surprises for guests; a 30-minute in-villa massage; packing and unpacking services; and a complimentary experience every afternoon, such as a private in-villa ceviche cooking class or a picnic at the beach.
Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos opened in November 2013, marking Hyatt’s entry into the luxury all-inclusive realm. It offers six à la carte and two gourmet buffet restaurants, a spa, sunrise yoga, seven swimming pools, children’s programs, and nightly entertainment in the on-property Grand Theater. Accommodations include Premium Level Swim-Up Suites with lounge privileges, personalized concierge services, VIP in-room refreshment center, and private check-in and check-out.
