San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, will be the location for a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. The premier luxury hotelier announced its plans with partners Grupo Questro and Trinity Investments at a signing ceremony that took place February 11 in Los Cabos. It will open in 2014.
The property will be located along the Baja Peninsula on an 800-foot stretch of private beach. The five-star site will feature one, two, and three bedroom villas with private infinity pools. The upscale mixed-use community will include a 500-slip marina, two signature golf courses, and a world-class spa. Legendary pro golfers Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman are the designers of the golf courses. There also will be a desert botanical theme park and a wharf. A total of 124 one-story oceanfront villas looking out over the Sea of Cortez will be built on the 30-acre R-C Reserve destination.
"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.
Historically, Los Cabos' legacy dates back to the 16th century and the Spanish Conquistadors. It is among the most desirable vacation getaways of continental North America.
