The Waldorf Astoria hotel brand is making its debut in Mexico.

The Hilton Hotels luxury brand is taking over the former Resort at Pedregal in Los Cabos, with the first-ever Waldorf Astoria in Mexico set to launch in the beginning of the fourth quarter.

The luxury resort, which will now be called the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, is set on a 24-acre site that includes mountains and beaches.

“As the brand’s first property to debut in Mexico, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal showcases the brand’s commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio to some of the world’s most sought after destinations,” said Dino Michael, global head at Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts. “We look forward to combining the resort’s exclusive environment and guest-focused comforts with the brand’s unparalleled commitment to personal service, and together, ensuring our guests have the experience of a lifetime.”

The 115-room hotel has a spa, four dining concepts and has long been considered one of the leading hotels in Mexico.

Even better? Every one of its rooms and suites comes with ocean views and private plunge pools.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Walton Street Capital Mexico to bring the first Waldorf Astoria to Mexico,” said Juan Corvinos, vice president, development, Latin America and the Caribbean, Hilton. “Los Cabos – a vibrant, dynamic and truly luxury destination that draws travelers from all over the world – is the perfect market for our iconic Waldorf Astoria brand, and will be a significant addition to the nearly 70 Hilton properties already in Mexico.”

The Mexico debut is part of a wider regional push for the brand that also includes a Waldorf Astoria hotel in Cancun and a planned Waldorf Astoria in Antigua.
