Hilton’s Waldorf-Astoria luxury brand has officially debuted in Mexico.
The brand has taken over at the former Resort at Pedregal in Los Cabos, with the rebranded property now called The Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal.
Waldorf’s first-ever resort in Mexico is set on a 24-acre site at the tip of Baja California, wth 119 rooms and suites, all featuring private plunge pools.
“The Waldorf Astoria brand has been setting the standard for luxury and personalized service across the globe for more than 100 years,” said Dino Michael, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. “The conversion of Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal reflects this commitment to expand our luxury portfolio and bring our True Waldorf Service to the world’s most sought-after and inspiring destinations.”
The property includes four food and beverage concepts, including El Farallon, Don Manuel’s, the Crudo Bar and the Beach Club, along with the Va Y Viene Beach Bar.
“We are excited for the next chapter of this landmark resort. Having been with the property since its opening ten years ago, the team’s dedication to providing everlasting experiences to our guests and commitment to preserving the area’s rich history and culture have been of upmost importance,” said Fernando Flores, general manager of the property. “Combined with Waldorf Astoria’s unparalleled, intuitive service, unwavering attention to detail and culinary excellence, this new Waldorf Astoria property will undoubtedly bring Los Cabos to the next level of unforgettable luxury.”
Also on hand is a Waldorf Astoria spa, a 12,000-square-foot facility with a menu that includes “Mexican folk healing treatment.”
It’s the latest Waldorf-Astoria hotel to debut in the region. Another Waldorf-Astoria is also in the pipeline in Mexico, with a planned Waldorf also coming to Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean. The latter is one of two planned Waldorf-Astoria resorts planned in the Caribbean, along with another highly-anticipated resort on the way in Antigua.
“It is a privilege to have such a distinguished resort join our growing portfolio as we continue our rapid expansion, set to celebrate 100 hotels in Mexico by 2022,” said Jorge Giannattasio, senior vice president and head of operations, Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton. “Recognized as one of Mexico’s most renowned resorts, the property provides us with an unparalleled opportunity to once again partner with Walton Street Capital Mexico to further support the country’s growing tourism sector. Travelers have come to expect the best of luxury at this idyllic oasis and we look forward to further enhancing the resort experience with our unique standards of luxury service.”
