Following the damage incurred by Hurricane Odile, Marquis Los Cabos Resort & Spa has reopened in grand style. The $10 million renovation features 235 oceanfront, residential-style suites along the Sea of Cortez. The resort, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, is the first to reopen along the Transpeninsular Highway following the hurricane, but according to Alma Lopez, corporate director of sales, Los Cabos is ready to welcome guests back to the destination.
“The Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau along with the director of tourism for Baja California Sur are putting together active campaigns to inform travelers that Los Cabos is ready for visitors,” Lopez said.
Each suite has been revamped with new beds, linens, minibars, L’Occitane bath products, hydro-massage tubs and furnished outdoor terraces. The resort also features three pools, two of which are infinity-edge. Original artwork by Latin American artists is on display throughout the resort as well.
“Having just finished a major top-to-bottom renovation with enhancements to all areas of the resort, we are constantly evolving our resort programming and activities to bring our guests distinctive, unforgettable travel experiences,” Lopez said. “Our full menu of destination activities, which includes camel rides, ziplining, ATV excursions, swimming with the dolphins, exceptional golf and whale-watching tours, is available to guests right now.”
On the culinary side, the resort has hired executive chef Thierry Dufour to oversee the menus at Canto del Mar, the property’s signature restaurant, along with three other specialty restaurants, which have all been renovated and revamped. Marquis Los Cabos has also reinstated the Marquis Wake Up, a delivery service of coffee and sweet rolls in-suite every morning, and will offer guests local delicacies, such as churros and corn-on-the-cob, in the pool common areas. With these enhanced in-room offerings, poolside amenities and new dining options, the resort looks to usher in a new wave of luxury in Los Cabos.
“Hotels and resorts are rebuilding after the hurricane, and they are coming back better than ever,” Lopez said. “Los Cabos is now a rising destination for luxury travel.”
