Meliá Plans December Debut for All-Inclusive Paradisus Los Cabos

Following a $35 million renovation, Meliá Cabo Real in Los Cabos, Mexico, will become Paradisus Los Cabos, its ninth Paradisus resort and its fourth in Mexico, Spanish hotelier Meliá Hotels International announced this week.

Scheduled to open Dec. 23, the all-inclusive Paradisus Los Cabos will feature 350 guest rooms, including 28 ocean-view swim-up suites; 30 "Family Concierge" suites offering access to family-focused services; and 98 "Royal Service" suites that will offer personalized butler service and a private location within an adults-only area of the resort.

Amenities will include four swimming pools, three bars, a signature wine cellar, a spa and fitness center, and six restaurants, including a fine-dining restaurant by Michelin-rated chef Martin Berasategui.

For groups, the resort will offer a variety of onsite event spaces, including gardens, pools, and an oversized beach area accommodating up to 3,000 people, not to mention what it claims is "one of the largest convention centers in Los Cabos." Opening in Spring 2017, the facility will include 10 breakout rooms and a ballroom with room for up to 1,100 attendees.

"We are thrilled to bring the Paradisus Resorts brand to such a thriving travel destination in Mexico," said Alvaro Tejeda, regional vice president, The Americas, Meliá Hotels International. "The brand has enjoyed significant success in the Dominican Republic and Mexico, and we are confident that our new Cabo property will be well-received, particularly with groups as the hotel features the largest convention space in the destination."
