Pristine reefs and gentle waters have made Chileno Bay one of Los Cabos’ most coveted beaches. In October, Auberge Resort Collection will enhance that appeal with the opening of the luxury VieVage Los Cabos beachfront resort.
According to John Volponi, VieVage’s general manager, the resort’s major edge is its immediate access to the Los Cabos destination’s premier water recreation.
“Nestled in a protective cove on Chileno Bay, VieVage Los Cabos is uniquely positioned on Cabos’ most coveted stretch of swimmable beach,” Volponi said. “Sheltered from the region’s typically strong surf, the resort’s calm tides allow for year-round swimming, kayaking, snorkeling the coral reef and paddle boarding,” he said.
Far from a newcomer to the tourism spotlight, the prime perch is the former home of historic Hotel Cabo San Lucas — the area’s first luxury hotel frequented by Old Hollywood stars like John Wayne and Bing Crosby.
Volponi noted that Discovery Land Company’s development of Chileno Bay will make a positive impact on the entire Los Cabos destination. “With an unsurpassed track record in developing luxury private clubs and communities around the world — including Cabos’ famed El Dorado Golf & Beach Club — Discovery brings a tried and true recipe for success along with a deep understanding of the Cabos community,” he said.
The VieVage brand appeals to savvy, sophisticated travelers who connect with family and friends, enjoy a casual and active lifestyle, and appreciate an authentic, modern yet warm environment. Vacation inventory within the 1,200-acre Chileno Bay development will include a 29-room boutique luxury hotel, and 32 contemporary three- and four-bedroom beach villas.
Exteriors are designed with indigenous materials and warm natural colors to blend into the natural surroundings. Interiors emphasize wood and native stone via a color palette of plant, earth and sea tones. With open floor plans, airy and light villas have floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outside in.
Lifestyle amenities include a 450-foot swimming pool, 7,500-square-foot wellness spa, fitness center, private theater, kid’s club, and the waterfront h2O Cave sports center. A second pool accommodates families with poolside cabanas, oceanfront hot tub and fire pits.
Hotel guests and owners also enjoy access to Chileno Bay’s exclusive Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole course. The 7,260-yard championship layout provides beautiful Sea of Cortez views from every hole.
On the dining front, guests will tap into Ocean Edge Restaurant’s La Plancha-style cooking and “cesushi” bar. The latter features a blending of traditional ceviches with Asian-influenced sushi flair.
On a more casual front, the Surf Bar will deliver cold brews and traditional tacos near the h2O Cave. Both Ocean Edge and the Surf Bar will appease guests on the go with freshly prepared, portable fare.
Opening rates for the hotel will range from $425 to $5,500 nightly. For more information about the Auberge Resorts Collection and debut of VieVage Los Cabos, visit aubergeresorts.com.
