The resort, which opened on December 20, has three infinity pools at different temperatures to suit both clients looking for a cold, refreshing dip and those looking for a warm plunge.
The pools are tiered with five feet separating each level. Rows of loungers were designed with unevenness between them, so that every space is in the front row, unobstructed.
Within the pools, replica islands were created with palm trees. There are also sunbathing areas on the pool area’s wooden decks.
Since an important part of the hotel is the view from all the rooms and public areas of the hotel, these pools were designed as silhouettes of birds and fish, in direct communication with the area's sea life. Jacuzzis are integrated into a corner of each pool and their shapes represent the head and eye of the "bird-fish."
A swim-up “cevicheria” is located in the middle pool, while swim-up bars with underwater seats are in the other two. Poolside food and beverage is also served.
The new Grand Velas Los Cabos on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula is the fifth property of the Velas Resorts. Located between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, the $150 million beachfront property has 304 ocean view suites with private terraces and some with personal plunge pools, while duplex wellness suites have designated wellness amenities and juice bars.
