Caesars Palace is Coming to Los Cabos

$200 million non-gaming, beach-front project is set to break ground in First Half 2019

Caesars Entertainment Corporation has announced plans to bring a non-gaming Caesars Palace resort to beachfront property along the coast of Puerto Los Cabos, an upscale development just outside of San Jose del Cabo. The hotel licensing strategy is part of Caesars’ plan to expand its brands into new global markets.

The $200 million luxury beach front hotel will be developed by Grupo Questro, one of Mexico’s preeminent developers with over 30 years of experience and a diversified portfolio of projects that includes resorts, hotels, shopping centers, golf courses, and residential complexes. Caesars Entertainment will manage the property and receive a licensing and management fee.

“Bringing Caesars Palace to Puerto Los Cabos will represent further progress on our strategy to expand the company’s non-gaming businesses into premiere resort and gateway destinations,” said Caesars Entertainment President and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Frissora. “This resort will represent our first investment in Mexico, and it speaks to the global strength of the Caesars brand. We are looking forward to working with Grupo Questro to create a 5-Star destination that reflects the best of Caesars offerings in the hospitality, dining and entertainment spaces.”

“We are very excited to work with our new partners to help bring the Caesars brand to Puerto Los Cabos,” said Eduardo Sanchez Navarro Rivera Torres, Executive President of Grupo Questro. “Caesars is known around the world, and we are confident that this luxury resort will be an incredible asset for global visitors.”

The non-gaming luxury beachfront hotel will feature 500 rooms and suites, a 40,000-square foot convention center, a 25,000-square foot full service spa, three fine dining restaurants, an array of amenities including an entertainment venue, pools, cabanas, fitness center, tennis courts and access to the two signature golf courses. The beachfront property will be situated in Puerto Los Cabos.

Puerto Los Cabos is a prime market for the introduction to the expansion of the Caesars brand in North America. The number of airline passengers into the market has risen 40% since 2015 with the majority coming from the United Statesand Canada followed by Mexico.

The announcement of the Puerto Los Cabos project follows last week’s announcement that Caesars Entertainment will manage two luxury hotels and a beach club at Meraas’ Dubai-based Bluewaters Island development. In late 2018, Bluewaters Island is expected to become home to Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai and Caesars Bluewaters Dubai — both of which will represent Caesars Entertainment’s first non-gaming resorts.

In addition to the projects in Puerto Los Cabos and Dubai, Caesars Entertainment has announced plans to build a meeting and conference center in Las Vegas and has broken ground on a new Harrah’s-branded casino in Northern California.

With more than 55 million members, Caesars Entertainment’s Total Rewards loyalty program is one the world’s largest such programs and acts as a tourism driver for the cities and destinations in which it operates. Total Rewards has successfully introduced its members to new experiences around the world – which will now include the exciting offerings found in Mexico.

Viceroy Takes Over Management of Mar Adentro in San Jose del Cabo

PRNewswire — Viceroy Hotel Group today announces plans to bring a provocative new luxury hospitality experience to the dynamic resort destination of San Jose del Cabo. In a groundbreaking move by the hospitality brand, Viceroy Los Cabos will open in Spring 2018, having taken over management of Hotel Mar Adentro, originally created by leading Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés. The striking hotel will re-launch as Viceroy Los Cabos, the group’s 14th property, and a member of The Viceroy Icon Collection. The launch will coincide with the resort hosting the 2018 ‘Gala de Danza,’ a mesmerizing dance and music festival celebrating artistry and creativity.

Viceroy Los Cabos is the brands first collaboration with Rodina Group, an investment firm specializing in hospitality, real estate, transportation and infrastructure across Mexico, who acquired the hotel in December 2017.  

“This is an incredible opportunity to expand our presence in Mexico and to offer travelers a remarkable Viceroy experience in Los Cabos,” said Bill Walshe, CEO, Viceroy Hotel Group. “It is a privilege to collaborate with such an accomplished partner as Rodina, who shares our vision to create an extraordinary new modern luxury resort experience in one of the world’s most sought after destinations.”

“Rodina is thrilled to bring the first Viceroy to Los Cabos, as the brand is perfectly suited for such a striking and progressive property. With every angle thoughtfully designed, Viceroy Los Cabos will emerge as a modern icon and truly unique destination in Los Cabos,” said Felipe and Andres Chico, Managing Partners at Rodina.

New and Enhanced Offerings  
Activating vibe through epic on-property experiences is a hallmark of the Viceroy brand. In collaboration with Al Arquitectura de Interiores, a celebrated design firm out of Guadalajara, Mexico, the renovations and updates to be revealed in the spring opening will include an energized arrival experience, the addition of a beach bar and beach pool, and an expanded, redesigned state-of-the-art fitness center and spa. Two of the four existing dining outlets will be structurally updated and re-concepted to provide spectacular dining and social options for guests and locals alike. Upon completion, Viceroy Los Cabos will feature 194 rooms, suites and villas, and 50 residences.

The resort amenities, including a cinema room for movie screenings and versatile meeting spaces, in addition to the new restaurants and bars, will establish Viceroy Los Cabos as the new energetic social hub in Los Cabos.

Celebrating Water and Local Surroundings  
Viceroy Los Cabos is a beachfront resort, a canvas of architectural achievement, located in San Jose del Cabo on the outer rim of Baja California Sur. Built by skilled local artisans, the unparallelled design of Viceroy Los Cabos celebrates water as our most precious natural resource, which stands as a proud celebration of, and connection to, its location.

The resort creates many opportunities for guests to create memories that will last a lifetime: whale watching on the Pacific Ocean, sailing on the stunning bays of Los Cabos, laying on the pearl white sand beaches, swimming in the turquoise lagoon in La Paz, and marine park exploration on the pristine beaches of Cabo Pulmo Park, which cradle some of the world’s largest coral reefs. Each will allow guests to experience the stunning bays of Los Cabos and ocean wonders that can only be found in the “World’s Natural Aquarium.”

Minutes away from downtown San Jose del Cabo, guests can take in the art walk of San Jose and its colonial architecture, explore multiple dining options, and discover local culture.

A Viceroy Milestone  
Viceroy Hotel Group currently operates Viceroy Riviera Maya, a romantic luxury resort located on Playa del Carmen. Viceroy Los Cabos will be the second resort in the company’s Mexican collection and an important part of Viceroy’s aggressive and expansive growth strategy.

Baja Snapshots: Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

All photos by Howard E. Gulick, from the Baja California Collection of the University of California San Diego.

In the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution, cape communities San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas settled into a period of relative calm and stability for the next half-century. Although the region would continue to experience the vicissitudes associated with commercial endeavors such as ranching, farming and fishing, its fundamental character would remain essentially unchanged until the age of tourism.

It was a welcome interlude. Both communities had suffered through a difficult drought period prior to the Mexican Revolution. So difficult were the last five years of the 19th century, in fact, that a significant portion of the residents left, many to work in the hellish Rothschild owned El Boleo copper mines in Santa Rosalía. At the advent of the Revolution in 1910, San José del Cabo had a population of 4,300 people, down over 18% from the previous decade. However, since the total population of what is today Baja California Sur amounted to only about 42,500 inhabitants, San José still maintained a robust 10% of the territorial population.

Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

By the early 1920s, San José had not only recovered from the devastating drought years, but was experiencing unheard of levels of prosperity.  “In 1924,” observed Alba E. Gámez in her historical account of the area, “the production of the planting and cultivation of sugar cane was processed in 41 mills and up to 690 tons of piloncillo (unrefined whole cane sugar) were produced for export. Furthermore, 90 tons of tomatoes were harvested. On a smaller scale, mango, avocado, citrus fruits, oregano, and damiana, a native shrub used for medicinal purposes and flavoring liqueur were produced. Parallel to the agricultural prosperity, cattle herds that year totaled more than 24,000 head of cattle.”

This prosperity translated to increased infrastructure and upgrades in public education, as well as the tangible symbols of 20th century modernization. The first road between the San José and San Lucas was established in 1926, with horses increasingly joined by cars on the dirt thoroughfare. The first automobile agency, a Ford dealership, opened in San José in 1930. The following year the first airplane ever seen in the area appeared in the skies over San José.

Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

The plane was piloted by a military aviator named Captain Feliciano “El Piojo” Flores. A veteran of the Mexico City airshow of 1930, Flores thrilled the Josefinos with an arsenal of maneuvers that included dives, somersaults and stalls. When the diminutive Mazatlán native finally landed, he was fêted like a conquering hero, and a dance was immediately organized in his honor (an episode remembered in C.M. Mayo’s superb 2002 travelogue Miraculous Air.).

In San Lucas, which lacked the fertile soil and abundant water resources of San José, the late 19th century drought had also hit hard. Over 1,200 head of cattle were lost between 1895 and 1901, and the already limited planting area decreased by 72% in the space of a single year (1900 t0 1901). Luckily for the beleaguered Sanluqeños, a new commercial enterprise was looming on the horizon.

From 1913, the year the first cannery ship was stationed in Cabo San Lucas Bay, until the 1970s, when tourism became the primary income generator, Cabo San Lucas was first and foremost a commercial fishing town.

Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

By 1917, cannery operations consisted of a four-masted sailing ship anchored near Land’s End, where it was serviced by a fleet of small skiffs and jig boats. The golden age, however, began in 1925 when brothers Carlos and Luis Bernstein Riverol capitalized the Compañia de Productos Marinos with 100,000 pesos, registering the name in Tijuana, and dividing the business into 50,000 shares which sold for the princely sum of two pesos apiece.

Productos Marinos brought in a larger factory ship, which processed and canned seafood caught by four wooden hulled auxiliary vessels, each with a storage hold, but with no cooling capacity. These fishing boats were manned by men from all over the world; men from Italy, Portugal, Yugoslavia and the U.S. Only a few dozen families lived in Cabo San Lucas at this time, and locals were primarily engaged aboard the mother ship, where they gutted, sterilized and canned the catch for export.

A land-based cannery began to be built on Playa Coral Negro in 1927, with operations kicked into overdrive in 1928 after the cooling system caught fire on the factory ship, causing it to sink. The permanent cannery opened in 1929, and over the course of coming decades became the most productive in Latin America, and one of the most productive in the world, accounting at its peak for some 75% of the canned seafood produced in México.

Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

Tuna, first canned in oil in 1930, was by far the most lucrative fish. Productos Marinos eventually employed three fishing ships – the Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Tosca and Punta Redondo – each capable of carrying tons of seafood to the cannery, where it was processed by a crew of around 50 people. Manuel Sarriz was the first manager, and the first man in Cabo San Lucas to buy a car, which he of course acquired from the Ford agency in San José del Cabo.

John Heston took over as manager in 1935, the year the workers decided to unionize, forming what would become the Sindicato de Trabajadores Evolutivos, Estibadores y Pescadores in 1938; when, on the advice of CROM, the Regional Confederation of Mexican Workers, they split into three factions.

Cabo San Lucas thus became a company town, with one major industry, and a factory whistle that blew daily at 7 a.m., noon, and 1 and 4 p.m.: indicating the start of business, lunch hours, and closing time, respectively.

Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

Elías Pando bought the company in 1948, ushering in a new era with the area’s first dedicated tuna fleet. He acquired some 11 American boats for that purpose, each capable of carrying around 40 tons. That was only the beginning. At the height of its powers, Impresas Pando employed a 1,000 ton ship called the Calmex.

Fishing was not Pando’s only investment, however. He was a businessman with wide interests, diversifying his money in chocolate, perfumes, wines and soap, among other products. Originally born in El Carmen, a small community in the municipality of Ribadesella in northwestern Spain, Pando’s most important move may have been hiring another man from Ribadesella as manager.

Life in Los Cabos Before the Golden Age of Tourism

“I moved to Cabo with my wife in 1954,” remembered Don Luis Bulnes Molleda in a 1992 interview for Baja Explorer. “We had no children in those days. It was impossible to have children here. No doctors, no medicine, no nothing. It was really isolated. To take a trip to La Paz took five or six hours by car. In the stormy season it could take a week because the road would wash out. Once I had to rebuild the road with my guys. We were isolated for 25 days.”

When Bulnes and his wife Conchita arrived in Cabo San Lucas, the population of the town had grown to about 300 people. Twenty-five years later, in March 1979, when the cannery released its last 300 workers, Bulnes’ Hotel Solmar had been open for five years, and the age of tourism was transforming the region soon to be known as Los Cabos.

Pioneer Cabo Golf Course Palmilla Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

Jack Nicklaus Designed Course Launched Los Cabos as an International Golf Destination

Opened in 1992 and the first Jack Nicklaus Signature design built in Latin America, Palmilla Golf Club, the “Grande Dame of Los Cabos Golf,” is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

A vanguard facility that set the stage for upscale golf development in Los Cabos, Palmilla’s core 18, the original Mountain and Arroyo nines, was the first course in the hemisphere to take full advantage of the region’s unique mountain, desert and ocean ecosystem. This trio of elements, along with Cabo’s consistently sunny weather, sparked the imagination of developers and gave rise to future projects in Los Cabos. The golf club, which has a membership and accepts daily-fee play, is a prime amenity for guests of One&Only Palmilla, a legendary resort built in 1956 by the son of a former president of Mexico.

Pioneer Cabo Golf Course Palmilla Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

Palmilla Golf Club celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2017.

Chiseled into a box-shaped canyon framed by tall stony peaks on the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, a colonial city circa 1730, Palmilla presents a target-style test stretched across a desert plateau. Holes skirt canyon-like gulches, cactus-studded hills and boulder-strewn arroyos. An upland spread with sweeping ocean views, the layout is framed by multi-armed cardon cacti—a cousin of the saguaro, only taller—as well as desert trees and smaller cacti. Several holes call for heroic carries over no man’s land from the back tees, but broad terraced fairways, generous bail-out areas and open-entry greens accommodate players of lesser attainment. Five sets of tees provide admirable versatility and strategic nuance. The club’s Ocean nine, added by Nicklaus in 1999, features a 600-foot elevation change from the first tee to the sixth green, transporting players from the mountains to the sea.

Badly damaged by Hurricane Odile in September 2014, Palmilla reopened the following April following an extensive $3.5 million clean-up and refurbishment. The club used the post-storm closure to refresh the entire facility. The computerized irrigation system, golf cart fleet and course maintenance equipment and outbuildings were upgraded or replaced. Bunkers were refilled with sand, irrigation lakes were restored and all playing surfaces, including tees, greens and fairways, were reconditioned by Troon Golf, which manages the golf course.

Pioneer Cabo Golf Course Palmilla Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

Palmilla’s 9-hole Mountain and Arroyo Courses were the first Jack Nicklaus designs in Latin America, and set the standard for Los Cabos golf when they opened in 1992.

According to Jason Ballog, Palmilla’s director of golf, the storm thinned out the thick desert forest that encloses the layout, greatly expanding view corridors to the sparkling Sea of Cortes. “Judging from the pictures I’ve seen, the course looks like it did when it opened,” Ballog said.

In addition to the remedial work performed on the golf course, Palmilla’s hacienda-style clubhouse was completely redesigned, with a new check-in area and additional retail space in the wood-paneled golf shop.

The golf club’s cantina is headed by One&Only Palmilla executive chef Larbi Dahrouch. The expanded outdoor seating area, surfaced in native stone, is shaded by Cabo’s classic palo de arco, a woven stick roof that filters sunlight. The new mesquite grill and fryer is used to turn out burgers, quesadillas and fish tacos, but Dahrouch, a Frenchman, has significantly revised and upgraded the menu.  The top-shelf Margaritas are among the best in town. 

Like the golf course, the iconic One&Only Palmilla took a hit from Hurricane Odile and reopened in April 2015 after a major refurbishment. Originally known as the Hotel Palmilla, the resort was patronized in the 1950s by famous deep-sea fishermen, including John Wayne, Bing Crosby, Ernest Hemingway and Dwight D. Eisenhower. The hotel was later transformed by South African entrepreneur Sol Kerzner into a world-class resort. Then as now, this elite retreat, a favorite of Hollywood A-listers, is set on a rocky promontory that juts into the azure-blue sea. The resort’s sandy beach is one of the few in Los Cabos where the water is calm enough for swimming.  

Nicklaus, known as the ‘Golden Amigo’ for his role in spearheading the growth of golf in Los Cabos with his prolific output, returned to build five additional layouts at the tip of the Baja Peninsula after the 1992 debut of Palmilla. Yet this idyllic 27-hole facility celebrates its silver anniversary as the queen of Cabo’s golf courses.

Developer of West Enclave, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residence in Los Cabos, Announces Coming-Soon Condominium Phase

Second Phase Follows Sales Success of Single-Family Homes That Are Now Over 50 Percent Sold

The developer of West Enclave, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residence, located in Los Cabos, Mexico, announced today a second phase of Ritz-Carlton Reserve branded and serviced Residences to include 60 new condominiums within The Enclaves coming to market in the second quarter of next year.

The condominium Reserve Residences will be adjacent to the West Enclave neighborhood consisting of 27 single family homes, priced from $4.1 million, which recently surpassed the 50 percent sold milestone with only 12 homes remaining.

“Buyers from all over the world are attracted to Los Cabos and the demand has been high for a condominium-type home within our community,” said Jeff Lawrence, director of sales and marketing for the developer, Grupo Questro. “Owners will have access to our beautifully landscaped grounds and all of the services of the nearby resort including a dedicated concierge, priority access to hotel accommodations and amenities, along with a host of a la carte services such as in-home chef services and housekeeping. There is nothing else at this level of fully serviced, luxury living in all of Los Cabos.”

 

The Reserve hotel is slated to open in late 2017 along with the 27 West Enclave single-family homes, both of which are well underway with construction. A priority interest list is being developed for the condominium product that is currently being developed within The Enclaves neighborhood, with reservations expected to start in early second quarter.

Announced this spring, West Enclave, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residence, is nestled along a sea-view bluff within the master-planned resort enclave of Puerto Los Cabos in San Jose Del Cabo. These 27 expansive villas each feature a combined 10,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space, sleek and modern architecture with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Sea of Cortez, a double kitchen finished with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, choice of cream marble and black granite countertops, Encino Oak wood or Douglas Fir hardwood, marble and limestone interior flooring, four- and five-bedroom residences with indoor/outdoor stone showers, massage gardens, an entertainment room with en-suite bathroom, service room with 3/4 bathroom, two powder rooms and a quietly efficient background of premium technology. Outdoor amenities include more than 4,000 square feet of outdoor living space complete with a private swimming pool and spa, covered living and dining area with bar, fireplace and BBQ, open-air courtyard with fire feature, fire pit, two golf cart parking spaces and a two-car garage.

The project, owned and developed by Grupo Questro, includes a 120-room Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel that will be surrounded by 125 Ritz-Carlton branded residences, known as The Enclaves. Delivery of homes will follow the October opening of the hotel.

The Reserve hotel and The Enclaves are a $430 million undertaking led by Grupo Questro, one of Mexico’s most highly respected developers. It is located within Grupo Questro’s multibillion dollar, master-planned resort community of Puerto Los Cabos in San Jose Del Cabo that spans 2,000 oceanfront acres. With three miles of pristine, private beaches, residence owners have exclusive access to a world-class marina accommodating yachts up to 400 feet, private beach clubs, an estuary, rolling hills robed in exotic flora, signature golf courses from both Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman, a private sculpture garden and a 12-acre cactus botanical park.

The sales gallery for The Enclaves is located at Paseo de los Pescadores S/N, Anita, Puerto los Cabos, 23403 in San José del Cabo, B.C.S.

Developed by Grupo Questro, West Enclave, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residence, is a collection of 27 exceptional residences in Los Cabos, Mexico, where owners will benefit not only from the legendary, anticipatory service of a dedicated residential management team and an adjacent Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel, but also from an unparalleled sense of place and whole ownership. The initial phase of The Enclaves features indoor/outdoor villas averaging 10,000 square feet, inclusive of 4,000 square feet of outdoor living space. These sprawling single-family contemporary homes offer a serene, private location with each Residence having its own swimming pool, floor-to-ceiling windows looking directly onto the Sea of Cortez, superbly appointed double kitchens, four and five en-suite bedrooms, an entertainment room and a quietly efficient background of premium technology. Rising from a sea-view bluff within 2,000 oceanfront acres of the private and protected master planned resort of Puerto Los Cabos, the West Enclave offers a stunning setting with full access to unspoiled beaches, a world-class marina, private beach clubs, an estuary, rolling hills robed in exotic flora, two signature golf courses from both Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman, a private sculpture garden and a 12-acre cactus botanical park. Complementing the Reserve Residences will be a Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel. Also developed and owned by Grupo Questro, it is expected to open in late 2017.

Southwest Airlines To Fly Nonstop Between Oakland And Mexico

Daily Service to Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, from Oakland Intl. Airport to begin Feb. 12, 2017

Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) today filed an application with the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to offer the first U.S. carrier nonstop service between Oakland International Airport and both San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, beginning in February 2017, subject to governmental approvals. Once approved, the carrier’s flight schedule and fares will be published on Southwest.com.

“Linking the San Francisco Bay Area to these popular Mexican beach resort areas with time-saving itineraries brings our Customers low-fare and high-value service that is an exciting addition to our growing international portfolio,” said Leah Koontz, Southwest Vice President  who announced the proposed flights to gathered guests and media near the carrier’s Oakland Ticket Counter. “We’re adding nonstop service that extends the reach of Oakland’s convenient airport experience to two top-ranking international destinations without a nonstop option.”

“Los Cabos, in particular, is the most requested international destination from the East Bay and North Bay that does not have a nonstop option,” said Bryant L. Francis, C.M., Director of Aviation for The Port of Oakland. “Southwest’s continual investment, especially with new medium-haul and long-haul flights has made Oakland International the fastest growing major airport inCalifornia in terms of passengers, and they’re enjoying unprecedented value and reliability.”

The Port is undertaking a major renovation of Terminal One: a new security checkpoint and international check-in and arrivals area is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2017; a modernization and expansion of the airport’s passenger federal inspection station (FIS) for U.S. Customs & Border Protection services is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2017.

One&Only Palmilla Partners with Laird Hamilton

Los Cabos Resort to Showcase Apparel of Big Wave Surfer Laird Hamilton

Luxury hospitality brand One&Only Resorts has announced an exclusive partnership deal with big wave surfer and all-around waterman Laird Hamilton – the former being the only resort company licensed to carry the latter’s new performance-based clothing line, Laird Apparel.  The launch recently took place at One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, with additional One&Only resorts expected to showcase specially curated collections by the end of the year.

The newly-debuted line of stylish yet performance-based apparel for men is inspired by the adventurous lifestyle of Hamilton himself. Hamilton, of course, is a legendary figure in the surf world, and generally regarded as the best big wave surfer ever. He pioneered the foilboard and tow-in surfing – using PWCs (personal water craft) to tow into waves too big to reach by paddle power – and has also been an active participant and proponent of wind and kitesurfing,  waterskiing, and even stand up paddleboarding. He’s also a successful model, filmmaker and television personality.

One&Only Palmilla Partners with Laird Hamilton

One&Only Palmilla Resorts is teaming up with Laird Apparel, the clothing line from big wave surfer Laird Hamilton.

One&Only was a natural partner for Laird Apparel, given its premium collection of tropical resort destinations. And its Palmilla property seemed singularly suited for the launch, blending barefoot luxury with a privileged, sui generis coastal setting. Not only does Los Cabos boast an established surf culture with a wealth of superb sites – the nearby Zippers break at Playa Costa Azul in San Jose del Cabo hosts the annual Los Cabos Open of Surf – but the area also boasts world-class conditions for water sports such as diving, windsurfing, kayaking and kiteboarding.

The 220-acre Grand-Dame resort has been the cynosure of high-end hospitality in Los Cabos for over 50 years. Originally founded in 1956, the property has evolved over the years from the fly-in fishing resort of original owner Rod Rodriguez to its current incarnation as a vacation haven for the haut-monde; a transition hastened by the One&Only imprimatur in 2004, and the efforts of former general manager and pioneer of Los Cabos style luxury hospitality Edward T. Steiner.

“When I arrived at the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, the connection between Laird Apparel and the resort felt natural as it fit within the local Baja surf culture,” Hamilton said. “From the pristine beach to the world-class fitness center and golf course to the tranquil yoga garden, One&Only Palmilla is the idyll setting for the clothing’s hybrid, function-first edge. The technical fabrics and tailored construction of the apparel allow the wearer to transition easily from water activity to lounging to sport to evening.”

One&Only Palmilla Pairs Up with Laird Hamilton

One&Only Palmilla is one of the benchmark resorts in Baja California Sur, with a spectacular property near San Jose del Cabo.

Plans to expand Laird Apparel to other One&Only properties are currently in the works, with an announcement expected soon.  In the meantime, One&Only Palmilla is the only resort to carry the line, and indeed the only place to buy Laird Apparel in the nearly 800-mile long Baja California peninsula.  An exclusive high-quality performance t-shirt inspired by the casual luxury lifestyle of One&Only Resorts was designed for the launch, and is currently available in the onsite NEO boutique. So too are outdoor apparel options specifically curated for One&Only Palmilla’s exclusive clientele.

“We look for unique and meaningful brands to carry in NEO boutique at One&Only Resorts,” said Helen McCabe-Young, Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing, One&Only Resorts. “We were initially drawn to Laird Apparel for the collection’s inspired product, refined aesthetic, and technical functionality.  We wanted to offer something more for our male guests who lead active lives and seek comfort, and quality whether for sport or leisure.  Laird Hamilton’s contemporary lifestyle of adventure and relaxed luxury living lends itself perfectly to One&Only’s own distinctive style, ‘unstuffy’ sense of genuine hospitality and lively local culture.”

About One&Only Resorts  
Created exclusively for the ultra-luxury resort market, One&Only Resorts are conceived as hallmarks of excellence.  Set in some of the most beautiful locales in the world, each award-winning resort offers guests a distinctive style and personality borne of its local culture, a genuine hospitality and a lively energy that is unrivalled.   These properties include One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives; One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius; One&Only Royal Mirage and One&Only The Palm in Dubai; One&Only Ocean Club in TheBahamas, One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico, One&Only Cape Town in South Africa and One&Only Hayman Island, Great Barrier Reef and Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley in The Blue Mountains in Australia.  One&Only has also announced plans to develop and operate five new One&Only resorts, in Sanya, Hainan, China; in Montenegro, which will be the first property for the collection in Europe, Bahrain and two new resorts in Mexico. More information on One&Only is available at oneandonlyresorts.com.
