The new Grand Velas Los Cabos resort, situated in between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico, is now offering an “Over-The-Top” getaway for oenophiles (wine lovers) looking to experience Mexico’s finest wines.
For guest accommodations, the resort has 304 ocean-view Grand Class suites, which can be upgraded to Presidential or Imperial class suites. Each of these suites have private terraces, personal plunge pools and a minibar stocked with unique beverages including wines, spirits, champagne, tequila and mezcal.
Starting at $26,650 for two people, the three-night getaway opens with special wine-infused spa treatments, including a Red Wine Bath and a Grape Mud Massage. The many oils, antioxidants and vitamins found within wine grapes lend a feeling of deep relaxation while nourishing the skin with anti-aging ingredients.
For the centerpiece of the Experience, however, the guest will travel via private jet to Ensenada, Baja California—Mexico’s wine capital—for private tastings from three different Mexican wineries. The tour is guided by the resort's Master Sommelier Pedro Poncelis Jr. After the tastings, guests are brought to the D’Poncelis Vineyard to explore the winemaking process and even make their own vintage, which they will receive a personalized case of to bring home.
Though the resort itself has five gourmet restaurants, as part of the Wine Lover’s Experience, guests can book for an additional $10,000 a two-Michelin-star dinner and pairings by Chef Sidney Schutte in the middle of a nearby Mexican vineyard.
In addition to the Wine Lover’s getaway, Grand Velas Los Cabos has a Technogym Fitness Center with personal trainers, three pools and a 24-hour personalized concierge service. For those who wish to explore Mexican culture beyond its wines, the resort is also set to open a gallery of contemporary art featuring the fashion of Mexico. The resort itself is beachfront and only 35 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport.
