Los Cabos Resort Chain Expands Into Luxury Vacation Residences For Travelers

As Los Cabos continues the evolution into a luxury destination, a worldwide resort chain in taking steps to solidify its presence in the region and provide upscale guests to Baja California Sur even more options to enjoy their vacation getaway to the sun, sand and surf.

The latest company adding additional hospitality services for Los Cabos travelers is Marriott International, moving forward to add a new level of luxury vacation residences for tourists.

Residences by Marriott International

Marriott International is introducing its Residences by Marriott International product, or branded residences, to give Los Cabos an interesting blend of home and resort.

The concept is that tourists selecting to stay at a Residences by Marriott International property can enjoy the best of both worlds on their Los Cabos vacation. They can still have the high level of resort customer service they expect from Marriott International with more of a casual at-home feel.

According to a company statement, “the branded residence collections offer luxury hotel benefits such as access to hotel programming, activities and consumer properties, including seasonal promotions, complimentary breakfast packages, resort credits for activities and consumption, free nights and more.”

Therefore, they are a step beyond the traditional vacation rental offering many more services and amenities for travelers.

A Resort With The Feeling of Home

Marriott touts that its resorts also have several of the comforts of home that travelers desire as well.

For example, Marriott says its Residences by Marriott International properties offer Los Cabos travelers “spacious living spaces, multiple bedrooms, social areas, fully equipped kitchens, and even stand-alone villas with private pools and outdoor spaces.”

These new resort style properties are designed for multigenerational travel groups that need varying spaces in their accommodations. They could also be a good fit for small groups of tourists that are traveling together, such as two couples.

Properties Now Available in Los Cabos

There are two of these resorts already available in Los Cabos. 

Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is a beachfront property in Los Cabos which offers visitors extra large suites with up to five bedrooms. This is an example of an upscale luxury property that would be perfect for multiple couples or even a small family reunion.

The traditional Mexican hacienda style property is designed to make travelers feel right at home with furnishings and artwork by local artisans. It is inspired by their passion for the sea and reflects cultural symbols and imagery.

The Residences at Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, is another one of these properties.

This property is a blend of the comforts of a traditional Baja California beach house with all of the great amenities of a luxury Los Cabos resort.

Several three-bedroom residences are available that could work for two couples traveling together or even possibly a couple inviting the in-laws to travel with them.

What Visitors Need to Know

While the Residences by Marriott International are a new emerging trend in Los Cabos accommodations with a unique blend of a luxury resort property with at-home convenience and feel, that comes at a price.

Looking at the Residences at Solaz for mid-November yields two residence options currently available for travelers at more than $4,000 per night. No, that’s not in Mexican Pesos, but in dollars.

Even justifying that the residence is appropriate for two couples, maybe even splitting the cost, puts the price of these properties well into the luxury category and out of the budget of many traveler, and Los Cabos journalist, budgets.

If you are looking for an upscale residence style vacation getaway to Los Cabos and have the funds, this may be a good option for you. However, most travelers may be better off at an all-inclusive Marriott resort property in Los Cabos instead.
