Mexico Grand Hotels, the Los Cabos-based, family-owned hospitality brand, has soft-opened its newest boutique property, Vista Encantada Spa Resort & Residences, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of the company. True to its name, the luxury view-centric property specializes in stunning vistas and impeccable hospitality, offering a Pacific coastal lifestyle with authentic Mexican touches.
Set on a seaside bluff overlooking Land’s End, Vista Encantada elevates hospitality to a sensorial experience. The resort’s 37 spacious suites are outfitted in a tribute to traditional Mexican decor, a colorful blend of locally-sourced textiles, crafts and paintings that reflect the hotel’s warm, ultra-personalized service, with indulgent amenities including 24-hour butler service, 24-hour room service and private Chef service.
“We are very excited to introduce our guests to a new luxury and hospitality experience centered around offering the highest standards of personalized service and the ‘home away from home’ ambiance that distinguishes our brand,” said Gabriel Ibarra, director of sales & marketing. “Each detail at the resort was carefully selected to create a unique and unforgettable stay for our guests, from the interior design to the culinary offerings to state-of-the-art amenities and spa.”
The property’s Sky Gym houses fitness with unparalleled Sea of Cortez views as part of its view-centric focus. Surrounded by cabanas, the rooftop Sky Pool and outdoor jacuzzi ensure jaw-dropping and unobstructed 360-degree views for guests seeking the perfect photo spot and exclusive poolside retreat.
Offering an array of specialized treatments including massages, body wraps and facials, Milagro Wellness Spa transports guests with ancestral treatments and rustic practices rooted in the natural healing traits of four principal flowers: dahlia used for revitalizing, fortifying and balancing; cempasuchil (Mexican marigold) for nurturing, connecting and calming; amaranth used to restore, hydrate and refresh; sunflower used for energizing, brightening, strengthening. In five state-of-the-art treatment rooms (including one room exclusively for couples), therapy pool, sauna, steam room, fitness center and juicebar, guests are cocooned in natural and organic products under the spa’s holistic approach to wellness. The spa’s endemic treatments recall the serene bliss of the natural Baja surroundings.
