Esperanza, an Auberge Resort, will unveil new interiors, all-new suites and an expanded spa in November.

“Auberge Resorts is dedicated to offering the best that Baja has to offer and the enhancements at Esperanza reflect that,” said Severino Gomez, regional vice president of Auberge Resorts and general manager of Esperanza. “New and returning guests will see that no detail has been overlooked, from the extraordinary Latin American artwork in each casita to the custom furnishings.”

Guestroom interiors will feature a Cabo-regional design. Other resort enhancements include the addition of a penthouse with more than 2,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space and views of the Sea of Cortez. Seven new spa treatment rooms, including an exclusive couples suite with private VIP access, has also been added, as well as a freestanding hairstyling, manicure and pedicure studio.

Dallas-based Wilson & Associates, interior designers, aimed to evoke a luxurious Mexican seaside estate with clean lines, built-in beds, stone and polished plaster works, light-colored woods and custom textiles as accents.

“Our idea was to create interiors that act as frames for the stunning 180-degree ocean views,” said Jim Rimelspach, lead designer at Wilson & Associates. “We wanted to blend Esperanza’s rich sense of warmth and handcrafted character with a modern sensibility that’s new to Cabo. We’ve done this by elevating the existing interior design with rich new furnishings to create a timeless look people will appreciate for years to come.”

The 61-room resort will include 11 new suites and the new one-bedroom penthouse with private elevator entrance opening to a living room and two outdoor terraces complete with private hot tub and oversized chaise.

The penthouse will also feature Pratesi Italian linens on a king-size bed, a bathroom with an extra-large soaking tub and an entertainment system with plasma TV.
