Los Cabos, a dream location with sandy beaches and crystal clear ocean water will soon be home to a new luxury resort and several private residences.

A big announcement in the luxury hotel business has been made. One of the world’s leading luxury hotel companies, the Four Season Hotels and Resorts, together with Irongate, a real estate development company, announced their construction plans for one of the most prestigious areas of Mexico: Los Cabos. The plan is to open up a luxury resort, as well as private residences along the beautiful beaches on the eastern shore of the Baja Peninsula by 2018. The new Four Season Los Cabos Resort at Costa Palmas is going to be within the exclusive Costa Palmas resort community - the plan is to build a private marina with a private two-mile beach stretch and a members- only yacht club.

The luxury real estate company Irongate, has had a vision for this specific area for quite some time. Now, they are very happy to announce this newly designed and valuable agreement with the Four Season Hotels and Resorts. According to the President and CEO of Four Season Hotels and Resorts, J. Allen Smith, the goal is to develop this beautiful region to a worldwide recognized luxury destination. Los Cabos has been known as a hot tourist destination, with a preference for the highly luxurious and extravagantly lush traveler. The combination of its stunning nature and picturesque beaches makes it the perfect fit for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to expand their business and brand within Mexico.

The plans show a beautiful resort, made up of several buildings, including private residences and villas along the oceanfront of Baja’s East Cape. In addition to the exorbitantly dashing homes, the area will offer wedding facilities, areas for indoor or outdoor events, and five-star restaurants conveniently placed alongside infinity pools overlooking the glittering Pacific Ocean. For all golf lovers, the resort is planning an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones II signature golf course, not without its opulent spas and state of the art fitness facilities. The rich and luxurious playground will connect to the yacht club and the marina, which will accommodate up to 200 yachts with lengths of up to 250 feet. Adjacent to the marina, a new marina village will find its home in between all the lavishness and will offer additional gourmet food and extensive shopping facilities, as well as artisanal boutiques and locally-curated music and art.

According to Jason Grosfeld, real estate pioneer and founder of the company Irongate, the entire Four Season Resort Los Cabos will be created for families and groups of friends who are looking to discover a fresh and new approach to resort design and lifestyle. The resort will represent a home to all people seeking adventures and a high-end service at the same time. It is set to be constructed on Costa Palmas, an unprecedented two-mile stretch of coastline with safe swimmable beaches and an international marina begging to be utilized. Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos is set to become the preeminent location destination for family and friends to reconnect year after year.

The East Cape of Los Cabos, bordered by the unhinged and daring Sea of Cortez is the perfect destination for all watersport lovers. The crystal clear water brings perfect conditions for snorkeling and diving as well as for more physically demanding activities like sport fishing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. The mountains of Sierra de Laguna, one of the most beautiful and least explored areas of Los Cabos, is the perfect place for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. If it is somehow possible for you to get bored with endless water and mountain activities, try exploring marvelous waterfalls and relaxing in freshwater pools and hot springs available to you in this all-inclusive destination of activities.

The new resort in Los Cabos at Costa Palma will be Four Seasons third project within Mexico - at the moment the company owns two properties in Punta Mita and Mexico City. The new resort will not only expand the Four Seasons Hotel chain, it will add value to their name by offering a new and highly attractive luxury destination to their already existing decadent resorts in the Maldives, Seychelles, Bora Bora, Koh Samui, and Hawaii. The destination plan is a huge effort between a variety of companies such as Vita Inc., Guerin Glass Architects, Humberto Artigas Architects and with interior design by TAL Studio.

The legendary luxury resort Costa Palmas is scheduled to open in 2018. The resort will be located only 45 minutes from the Los Cabos International Airport which finds its home on the East Cape of the Baja Peninsula.  With a size of 1000 acres, you can expect a private beach front resort community with world-class amenities, multiple pools, a full-service spa, five restaurants, a yacht club and a Robert Trent Jones II 18-hole golf course with ocean views.
