Four Seasons Now Accepting Reservations at New Los Cabos Property

Set against a backdrop of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas is the newest property to open its doors on the Baja California Peninsula. A 141-guest room escape, the new property is the only Four Seasons Resort featuring a private marina and is notably located on a stretch of swimmable beach in Los Cabos’ East Cape area. An area that was once a beachside escape for Hollywood celebrities and Texas fishermen arriving by small plane or chartered boat in the 1950s, the vast East Cape landscape has remained untouched, until now. “We are truly breaking new ground here, being part of this community that, while only 45-minutes from Los Cabos International Airport, presents an undiscovered paradise like no other on the Baja Peninsula,” said Vince Parrotta, Four Seasons president, Hotel Operations – Americas West. Highlights of the new property include all guest rooms offering views of the Sea of Cortez and private terraces. There will also be five dining options, including the first Latin American outpost of Chef Costas Spiliadis’ famed Mediterranean seafood empire, estiatorio Milos. The Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos will also feature a spa and wellness center with 10 stand-alone treatment rooms and two couples suites. Also, noteworthy, there will be four expansive pools and a Robert Trent Jones II 18-hole golf course as well as 18 acres of organic farm and orchards. The sports offerings range from tennis to volleyball and basketball. In addition, there are cutting-edge fitness facilities. “Costa Palmas and now Four Seasons Resort truly introduces a new way to experience Cabo. Our vision from the outset was to create a fresh and mindfully planned community in the natural beauty of the East Cape for those of all ages who appreciate a natural setting, a refined approach to design, a spirited sense of adventure and of course, impeccable service,” added Jason Grosfeld, chairman and CEO of Irongate (Costa Palmas developer). “We hope that families, friends and couples alike will make Four Seasons Resort or Private Residences their place to reconnect, revitalize and revisit year after year.” Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas is accepting reservations beginning on November 1.
