In a groundbreaking move by the hospitality brand, Viceroy Los Cabos will open in Spring 2018, having taken over management of Hotel Mar Adentro, originally created by leading Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés.
The striking hotel will re-launch as Viceroy Los Cabos, the group’s 14th property, and a member of The Viceroy Icon Collection. The launch will coincide with the resort hosting the 2018 ‘Gala de Danza,’ a mesmerizing dance and music festival celebrating artistry and creativity.
Viceroy Los Cabos is the brand’s first collaboration with Rodina Group, an investment firm specialising in hospitality, real estate, transportation and infrastructure across Mexico, who acquired the hotel in December 2017.
“This is an incredible opportunity to expand our presence in Mexico and to offer travelers a remarkable Viceroy experience in Los Cabos,” says Bill Walshe, CEO, Viceroy Hotel Group. “It is a privilege to collaborate with such an accomplished partner as Rodina, who shares our vision to create an extraordinary new modern luxury resort experience in one of the world’s most sought after destinations.”
In collaboration with Al Arquitectura de Interiores, a celebrated design firm out of Guadalajara, Mexico, the renovations and updates to be revealed in the spring opening will include an energised arrival experience, the addition of a beach bar and beach pool, and an expanded, redesigned state-of-the-art fitness centre and spa. Two of the four existing dining outlets will be structurally updated and re-concepted to provide spectacular dining and social options for guests and locals alike. Upon completion, Viceroy Los Cabos will feature 194 rooms, suites and villas, and 50 residences.
The resort amenities, including a cinema room for movie screenings and versatile meeting spaces, in addition to the new restaurants and bars, will establish Viceroy Los Cabos as the new energetic social hub in Los Cabos.
