Mexican hotel group to triple up in Los Cabos

Mexican hotel group Velas Resorts has revealed a new resort and concept in the all inclusive space is heading to Los Cabos.

Marking the chain’s third site in the western Mexican municipality, Grand Velas Boutique Los Cabos will open in late 2023.

Boutique sanctuary

Adults only, the boutique hotel will be a relaxing sanctuary, and guests will have access to sister property Grand Velas Los Cabos’ five gourmet dinner restaurants led by top chefs and four bars with no additional charge. 

The beachfront Grand Velas Boutique features 79 spacious suites, all over 900 sq ft with a private terrace, living area with sofa, walk-in shower and jacuzzi, two queen or one king size bed, daily-stocked premium minibar, and 24-hour personal concierge.

Contemporary Mexican

A contemporary Mexican design features a neutral palate and Mexican art complemented by pops of metals. Signature facilities and services include a two star Michelin consulting chef, an expansive wine selection inspired by the proximity to Mexico’s fine wine region and innovative spa treatments inspired by Mexican culture.

Onsite culinary offerings include a creative dining experience with casual and fine dining restaurants, poolside F&B, tequila and mezcal tastings, and mixology. A wellness centre with both gym and spa, indoor or outdoor ocean view event spaces, infinity pool, and private beach area complete the provisions. 

Environmental harmony

Ricardo Elias, principal of Elias and Elias Architects in Guadalajara, who designed the Grand Velas Resorts in Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit and Los Cabos, returned as the architectural designer for Grand Velas Boutique Los Cabos.

Created to exist harmoniously within the rugged topography of its environment, Grand Velas Boutique steps down to the sea, providing unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez throughout the property. Mexican touches are found throughout, including a cactus garden. The mosaic design at the bottom of the pool features tiles in shades of green, pink and white to look like a garden.

Ernesto Vela, founder and director of Ernesto Vela Architects, created spaces within the resort that invite relaxation with natural materials and a natural palette. Bougainvillaea adorn the exterior balconies complementing the blue pool that leads the eyes to the Sea of Cortez.
