Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort Golf & Spa and Grand Solmar The Residences at Rancho San Lucas recently made their highly anticipated debut as the newest luxury resorts within Solmar Hotels & Resorts' esteemed collection of all-suite properties. Situated on the southernmost tip of Mexico's Baja peninsula with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, these two new resorts reveal the first phase of Rancho San Lucas, an 834-acre private resort community blending world-class experiences with residential lifestyle amenities.
"At Solmar Hotels & Resorts, we continuously strive to elevate the experience for our guests and residents. Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort Golf & Spa and Grand Solmar The Residences at Rancho San Lucas certainly do that and more, presenting an all-encompassing experience of resort, residential and golf in the most envied location of all Baja California Sur," said Ricardo Orozco, Solmar Hotels & Resorts vice-president of operations.
Impeccably designed by renowned Dallas-based architecture firm , both resorts bring the coastal Baja Mexico feel to the vast beauty that only Los Cabos can offer. Mirroring the area's desert landscape, the overall design melds natural earth tones with traditional touches such as barrel tile roofs, archways and ironwork. Lush greenery and numerous water features, such as a lazy river and salt water lagoon, accentuate outdoor areas. The overall feel is sophisticated and welcoming, with a breezy ambiance throughout.
"Great design is as much about personal relationships as it is about creating unique and unforgettable experiences that reflect the authenticity of the destination," said Sergio Saenz, HKS Hospitality Studio Director. "Ensuring that the architectural design paid respect to the surroundings - from the wind-swept dunes to the Pacific shoreline and centuries-old arroyos - was key in creating this world class destination focused around the discerning expectations of the Solmar Hotels & Resorts guest."
Beyond the luxurious guestrooms will soon be numerous amenities that families, couples and friends can enjoy. These include two adult-only infinity pools and one kids pool with a mini waterpark; first-class fitness center with Life Fitness equipment; a full-service beauty salon; laundry mat; health clinic; concierge services and more. There will also be a signature Spa offering a menu of healing massages and body therapies with organic local ingredients and essential oils.
The first phase unveils 89 well-appointed, ocean-front suites spread among the two properties. At Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas, guests have three options for accommodations - all with views of the Pacific Ocean - including the Grand Studio, One-Bedroom Master Suite and Two-Bedroom Presidential Suite. Also offering sweeping ocean views, Grand Solmar The Residences at Rancho San Lucas offers additional options of spacious two-, three- and four-bedroom Penthouse Suites. Inside, the design is reflective of the desert-by-the-sea vibe of Los Cabos. Premium warm furnishings and sleek design set the tone for an upscale, yet relaxed vacation experience. Guests will find wooden cabinetry and light furnishings that are accented by vibrant Mexican colors and marine elements such as corals and shells.
Resort guests will enjoy a variety of dining options that cater to every taste. Anica is the resort's signature restaurant that features an international menu highlighted by freshly-caught seafood, homemade breads, and authentic Mexican flavors. The Las Olas Poolside Bar is a casual, outdoor option with numerous culinary selections and hand-crafted tropical cocktails. Guests can also visit the Deli Café to revive with Oaxaca coffee, freshly made salads, wraps and sandwiches. Brisas Grill Bar is another alfresco option where guests can indulge in sushi creations, salads, wraps, and low-fat smoothies made with exotic fruit and vegetables. Finally, the poolside Tide Bar offers a broad range of cocktails, snacks and treats.
While guests will find much to do roaming around the resort, Los Cabos presents numerous attractions nearby. Among the allure of the area is a spectacular nightlife, gourmet dining scene, sightseeing, outdoor adventures and more. Adventure seekers can partake in fun activities such as sport fishing, surfing, sailing and off-roading on ATVs. Other must-visits include visiting the lively Marina Cabo San Lucas, seeing the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas by boat and scuba diving in the National Marine Park Cabo Pulmo, home to stunning coral reefs and sea life. The destination has something for everyone.
As part of the 834-acre Rancho San Lucas experience, guests will soon be able to enjoy an 18-hole Greg Norman golf course, slated for completion during winter of 2018-2019, and a Mexican Village shopping and entertainment center. Upon completion, Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas Resort Golf & Spa will have 594 suites of which, 105 will be part of the Grand Solmar The Residences at Rancho San Lucas.
