Capella Hotels and Resorts to Debut Three Resorts in Mexico by 2009

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Within the next six months, Capella Hotels and Resorts will make a big splash in Mexico with the debut of three new resorts in three very distinct and unique locations –cliffside on the Pacific Coast in Ixtapa, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas and amid a mangrove forest and coconut preserve in the Riviera Maya.

Capella Ixtapa, set to open this fall in the resort town Ixtapa near the fishing village of Zihuantanejo , is an incredible cliff-side hotel featuring 56 guest rooms in buildings that cascade towards the sea. Each guestroom boasts its own private outdoor terrace and infinity edge pool. Guests will enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific while surrounded by tropical forests and the Sierra Madre Mountains . A private beach, four restaurants and a 6,000-square-foot spa with outdoor treatments rooms are just a few of the amenities awaiting guests at Capella Ixtapa.

Opening this December is Cabo’s most anticipated new resort in years. The Capella Pedregal Resort and Spa will offer the finest accommodations and services in Cabo San Lucas and is the only luxury hotel and residence resort in proximity of the world-class Cabo Marina. The 66-room mountainside Capella Resort and Spa is accessed only via a private tunnel and its rooms and suites have premium ocean views or are ocean front rooms. Amenities include a 10,000-square-foot signature Auriga spa and wellness center incorporating treatments from Mexican healers (Curanderas), a private Yacht Club for guests and homeowners offering unprecedented access to a fleet of Viking sport fishers and cruisers, a mountain top club and four gourmet restaurants.

Set within 254 secluded acres along the Riviera Maya, Capella Bahia Maroma will be comprised of an 86 villa resort and whole-ownership residential offerings upon its opening in March 2009. The exclusive resort and residential community is directly opposite the world’s second largest coral reef – the Great Maya Reef – and the resort’s villas open directly to the Caribbean Sea and its own private white-sand beach. Guests and homeowners at Capella Bahia Maroma will have access to a signature Auriga spa and wellness center, gourmet dining, a beach club with outdoor pools and whirlpools and the only private golf course in the Yucatan Peninsula and the last to be built along the Caribbean coastline.

Capella’s Mexican resorts will incorporate the brand’s uncompromising levels of service and each location will feature teams of the brand’s signature Personal Assistants, on hand assist with a guest’s every whim.
