The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. is teaming with a joint venture between Grupo Questro and Trinity Investments L.L.C.to develop a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in San Jose del Cabo in Mexico.
The Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be operated by The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company and will open in 2014 as the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve project in the country.
Situated along 800 feet of oceanfront along Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, the reserve will consist of 124 private, single-story, oceanfront villas, each with panoramic views across the Sea of Cortez in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Los Cabos dates its legacy to the 16th century and the Spanish Conquistadors, but today is known as a desirable vacation getaway.
“We have looked at many sites in Mexico over the years, and believe the location at Los Cabos will offer our sophisticated travelers an exciting new place to explore and enjoy. It is an added pleasure to be working with our solid developers, Grupo Questro and Trinity Investments,” said Herve Humler, president, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company L.L.C.
“The concept of the resort is simple and yet exudes style and luxurious levels of comfort. It will provide a complete escape to the unexpected; a private, exclusive leisure experience that blends unique elements of the local culture, history, and heritage with intuitive individual service, exquisite indigenous design, casual ambience, and respect for the surrounding environment,” says Herve Humler, president, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company L.L.C.
Design inspiration for each Reserve is taken from the environment in which each property is based. From native architectural signatures and innovative local art, to indigenous furniture and motifs inspired by regional tradition, every design element of a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is designed to locate guests in a sense of place.
“After a great deal of intensive work identifying the site and working on the feasibility and designs, we are delighted to have signed with The Ritz-Carlton as our management company of choice, a globally recognized luxury brand who will add tremendous value to the wonderful 30 acre site,” says Eduardo Sanchez-Navarro, RT, CEO of Grupo Questro. “Every detail of the concept for the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand extension marries perfectly with the exclusive boutique retreat that we are creating. As the name suggests, it’s something very special indeed, it’s a limited edition, like a Reserve vintage.”
The hotel will offer one-, two- and three-bedroom villas, each with private infinity plunge pools, outdoor terraces with intimate fireplaces, outdoor showers and butler service. Additional resort features and amenities within the Puerto Los Cabos mixed-use development include a spa, Desert Botanical Theme Park, Fisherman’s Wharf, a 500-slip marina, two private championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus & Greg Norman and proximity to the town of San Jose del Cabo and the airport.
Ritz-Carlton says the construction of a five-star luxury resort in Mexico will bring jobs to Los Cabos, both during the construction phase and once the resort commences operations. According to the hotel company, the economic impact of the Ritz-Carlton Reserve at San Jose del Cabo will provide long-term benefits to the area and local citizens, and will help to enhance the reputation of Los Cabos as an exclusive destination for international tourists.
