The Resort at Pedregal in Los Cabos is becoming a Waldorf Astoria hotel. The property, which was recently acquired by affiliates of Walton Street Capital Mexico, will officially rebrand as the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal in the fourth quarter of this year.
In a written statement Dino Michael, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, noted that the move would make the Resort at Pedregal the luxury brand’s first property in Mexico. The rebranding also means the property will be part of Hilton's HHonors loyalty program.
All 115 guestrooms and suites at the resort have ocean views, private plunge pools and a design inspired by the surrounding area’s natural elements, with a neutral color palette of beiges and browns, marble floors and natural accents in wood lamps and tables. Other amenities include rainforest showers, stand-alone bathtubs, outdoor areas with fire pits and private chefs.
Also on the 24-acre property are three swimming pools, including an infinity pool looking out over the Pacific Ocean, as well as a salt water pool and a children’s pool. At the Luna y Mar Spa, guests can choose from a variety of organic treatments inspired by the lunar cycle, the sea and Mexican folk healing, including herbal detoxes and rose-crystal lymphatic facials. The spa also has a wellness grotto with local herbal remedies, steam rooms, saunas, ice rooms, whirlpools and a salt water meditation pool. There are also Pilates and yoga fitness classes, all with an oceanfront view.
In terms of dining, Don Manuel is the resort’s signature restaurant, serving up a menu highlighting locally and regionally sourced ingredients in a Mexican hacienda. Guests can also opt for ocean-to-table cuisine at the cliffside El Farallon; casual fare such as sushi and ceviche at Crudo, in the center of the pool bar; or freshly caught fish and crisps at The Beach Club. Guests can also arrange for a private chef to create personalized meals in their suites or on their terraces. On-demand cocktail carts are also situated throughout the property.
The resort is exclusively reached by a privately owned tunnel where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Nearby are the Land’s End rock formations and the Cabo Marina, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Experiences with the hotel’s local partners, including naturalists, adventurers and farmers, are also available, as well as activities running the gamut from sunrise paddle boarding and jungle exploration to swimming with whale sharks, scuba diving, horseback riding, yacht tours, cooking classes and more.
