Owner: Rodina Group, one of the top investment firms in Mexico specialising in hospitality, real estate, transportation and infrastructure.
Originally conceived by Mexico-based architect, Miguel Angel Aragonés, and formally known as Mar Adentro, the 194-room masterpiece has re-emerged as a Viceroy property after undergoing renovations and enhancements.
With a dreamscape design embracing the natural beauty of water throughout every facet of the resort, the new Viceroy Los Cabos is a canvas for discovery with cinematic views and alluring experiences around every turn.
Completely rebuilt and, brand new to the resort, are a beachfront pool and bar, a refreshed and vibrant lobby, new dining venues, and a state-of-the-art fitness centre curated by Los Angeles-based celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak.
Managed by: “The much-anticipated opening of Viceroy Los Cabos marks an extremely monumental day for our brand. I look forward to welcoming guests to this extraordinary resort as we endeavour to create inspiring adventures that will stay with them a lifetime,” said Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group.
“The resort stands out as provocative and sensational. It furthers Viceroy’s quest to deliver highly individual, modern luxury experiences in the world’s most sought-after destinations.”
“As proud owners of Viceroy Los Cabos, we are thrilled to collaborate with Viceroy. This stunning and unique resort will elevate the already-impressive reputation Los Cabos has as the ultimate destination for sophisticated adventurers,” said Andres & Felipe Chico, Managing Partners at Rodina.
Among the other renovations, Viceroy Los Cabos includes five distinct and reconstructed dining venues, each providing a local experience reflective of the history and culture of Baja.
“Nido” Restaurant, translated from Spanish to mean “nest,” is a visual centre-piece and social attraction for guests and locals alike.
Its latticed, nest-like structure is surrounded by elevated walkways, appearing to float on water.
Located in the main building of the resort, Casero Restaurant and Otro Bar feature home-style Mexican cuisine and a Tequila Library stocked with house infusions such as chile and marigold, as well as craft coffee and specialty Mexican Hot Chocolate.
Viceroy Los Cabos’ beachside eatery Nidito (meaning “Little Nest”) overlooks the brand new infinity beach pool and picturesque ocean, while offering colorful and bite-sized decadences including an array of tacos, exotic fruit cups, and Instagram-worthy cocktails with festive garnishes.
Opening later this year is a vibrant rooftop bar with scenic ocean views.
THPT Comment: This really does sound like a fab resort to visit. Viceroy is standing out for the quality of the hotels they operate.
Expanding their global footprint into San José del Cabo, Viceroy has grown its Mexico presence where it currently operates Viceroy Riviera Maya, a romantic luxury resort in Playa del Carmen.
The opening of Viceroy Los Cabos is a vital part of the brand’s bold and expansive growth strategy with forthcoming openings in Serbia, Argentina, Panama, Portugal, and Vietnam.
