This fall, Marriott International will debut the 299-room JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa. The property is situated at a point of convergence between the sandy dunes of the Baja California Sur desert, the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, and was designed to showcase the area’s natural environment and traditions. Attendees will experience this firsthand when they step into the open-air lobby, with instant views of the sea and the resort’s infinity pools, which create the illusion of the ocean merging with the property.
“The oceanfront resort features a sophisticated and modern architectural design, which blends representative textures, color and elements from the Baja region, introducing local dialects throughout the property in our accommodations, guests areas and outlets,” says Mike van der Kroft, the property’s general manager.
As attendees venture into the resort, they will find seven restaurants and bars, including Café des Artistes. The Mexican fine dining restaurant will feature a menu with French influences created by award-winning Chef Thierry Blouet. The restaurant will have both indoor and outdoor seating as well as a chef’s private table area—ideal for intimate groups.
Attendees will want to unwind at the 21,000-sf Jasha Spa, which will offer spa treatments that combine pre-Hispanic rituals and the latest treatments and products. For instance, the spa will have a modern version of the temazcal, a Mexican sweat lodge used by Aztecs to promote healing, health and wellbeing. van der Kroft says that the spa will also demonstrate a mineral hydrotherapy circuit with a capacity for up to 20 attendees.
He adds that the Griffin Club is the property’s best attribute. A boutique hotel within a hotel, the 45-room Griffin Club offers private facilities such as a movie theater, private beach and pool, reserved Jasha Spa areas, and a personalized on-call butler service, while still allowing attendees all the facilities and privileges of the entire resort.
“The Griffin Club proves that not only will our resort have the capacity to host high-profile groups, but it will also attend to its executive needs by extending its luxury to private secretarial services in the Kumat business center, exclusive to the Griffin Club guests, along with a VIP auditorium and a Board of Director meeting space,” says van der Kroft.
Meeting planners will enjoy crafting events in the property’s private beach area, which van der Kroft says is perfect for hosting top executive and social events. Designed to look like an ancient Greek forum, the 7,104-sf Sum-San amphitheater will also be available for meeting planners looking to host performing art events or special celebrations under the stars.
The Mila Ballroom highlights the property’s 37,000 sf of meeting space, and it features views of the Sea of Cortez and natural lighting. JW Marriott’s Red Coat Group Specialist team will be available onsite to help plan dedicated activities such as live entertainment, Beach Olympics or even bonfires on the beach.
