Los Cabos, Mexico (May 5, 2008) – The Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced plans for the development of Quivira Los Cabos, a luxury residential resort community inclusive of The Ritz-Carlton Los Cabos, Quivira; The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton Los Cabos, Quivira; two Jack Nicklaus-designed signature golf courses and Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa. The development, slated to launch in Spring 2008 will span 1,850-acres of secluded property and three miles of pristine beach. Quivira Los Cabos is the most recent project of renowned resort developer, Ernesto Coppel and was inspired by one of the seven legendary lost cities of gold from the 16th and 17th centuries. With an investment of $1.5 billion USD, Quivira Los Cabos will align perfectly with the destination’s portfolio of luxurious and world-class resorts furthering Los Cabos’ upscale appeal.
The concept of Quivira Los Cabos is to deliver luxury, privacy and exclusivity, and world-class amenities and service to guests. Envisioned as a close-knit community where family and friends come to reconnect, Quivira Los Cabos’ luxury branded address will house The Ritz-Carlton Los Cabos, Quivira and The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton Los Cabos, Quivira. The ocean-side resort and five-star caliber residences will bear the gold standard of hospitality. Ownership opportunities at The Residences will range from estates and villas to condominiums and home sites all constructed in the tradition of Mexican-style haciendas. Additionally, the community will include Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa. Recognized by premier travel publications such as Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure among the ‘World’s Best’, Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa offers 154 guest accommodations including 14 suites, holistic spa and full-service fitness facility.
The two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses are anticipated to rank among the best in North America highlighted by more oceanfront holes than any other development on the Baja Peninsula. The development of the Quivira Los Cabos courses will add to the destination’s steadfast appeal as a premier golf destination and a mecca for championship golf courses. Currently home to nine courses designed by a “who’s who” of golf course designers, the two Quivira Los Cabos courses increase the number of courses at various stages of development in Los Cabos to eight.
In addition to Quivira Los Cabos, several master-planned communities offering five-star resort amenities and luxury lifestyle are underway. Diamante Cabo San Lucas is an exclusive golf community currently under construction on 1,500 acres encompassing two premier golf courses designed by PGA Tour golfers Phil Mickelson and Davis Love. The community will also feature state-of-the-art golf facilities, beach club, tennis complex, world-class spa, fitness center, swimming pools, equestrian center, ice hockey and other recreational facilities. Along the tourist corridor, the Chileno Bay Club project encompasses 2.5 miles of coastline for two championship courses designed by Tom Fazio as well as a private marina and yacht club and the Inn at Chileno Bay.
Capella Pedregal, a 24-acre community spanning the Pacific coastline to the top of the famed Pedregal Mountain in Cabo San Lucas offers a community of 20 private casonas, 31 residences and a 66-room luxury hotel and Capella Pedregal Yacht club with a prized fleet of luxury sporting yachts. The mega Puerto Los Cabos community just northeast of San José del Cabo at the start of the East Cape is carving out two 18-hole courses, designed by Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman in addition to a marina complex. This inspired growth is certain to insure Los Cabos’ reputation as the premier luxury retreat in Mexico for years to come.
“We are grateful for the significant growth of the destination and we are dedicated to raising the bar in order to present an enhanced vacation experience to our guests,” said Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau President Gonzalo Franyutti. “As Mexico’s leading vacation destination, Los Cabos will continue to maintain its exclusive appeal with steady but intelligent growth.”
